There are wifi devices showing up in Wicd that have signals 30% stronger than my router.

Oh my gosh, the wifi is in my house. Get out while you still can!

A common mistake made by billions of people: confusing Fahrenheit and Fahrenheit's monster.

Fahrenheit was the creator. The temperature scale is "Fahrenheit's monster."

PSA:

"I'm not afraid to get Corona" is fake punk.
"I'm gonna protect my community" is real punk.

Oh my gosh no, co-workers. No conspiracy theories.

None. No.

Not now, not ever.

Unless you're talking about how the guy fills the vending machine so my bag of chips never comes out right.

Hmm. My folding@home client can't seem to get any more work units. I wonder if this is a thing?

In light of every streaming service about to get absolutely crushed in the next couple of weeks, I'm glad I decided to keep my personal collection of stuff.

Just in case.

Recently we "released" a designer that was working here, much to the relief of many folks. Now this is tempered by the knowledge that because I'm the Senior I get to help choose the candidates and do interviews. The latter definitely sits outside my general comfort zone, even if it isn't the first time I've done it. This time I know for certain there're going to be better assessment practices during probation!

"The Death of Designer Unicorns" a great article that pretty much sums up my opinion on the whole "should designers code" idea. TLdNR: building products has become too broad for anyone to be able to do it all, collaboration makes us stronger! brianlovin.com/overthought/dea

My day is predestined. My father-in-law's ISP disabled access to his email account due to suspicious activity. No other information provided and they won't restore access until the problem is fixed. Unfortunately it appears this happened while my FIL was in a different country and his laptops were left at home and hibernating/closed. So now without help or logs I have the figure this out. Or was it his cell phone? I dunno, but it looks like I'll be spending time with tech support. Yay.

My 4-year old attended soccer this morning. On of the tasks was to knock a ball off of a pylon. The coach said, "Given what we have, what would we use to knock the ball off?" Amid all the screamed answers of "another ball" I heard my child yell "Math!"

Below the thunders of the upper deep,
Far, far beneath in the abysmal sea,
His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep
The Kraken sleepeth: faintest sunlights flee
About his shadowy sides; above him swell
Huge sponges of millennial growth and height;
And far away into the sickly light,
From many a wondrous and secret cell
Unnumber'd and enormous polypi
Winnow with giant arms the lumbering green.
There hath he lain for ages, and will lie
Battening upon huge sea-worms in his sleep,
Until the latter fire shall heat the deep;
Then once by man and angels to be seen,
In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die.
— "The Kraken" by Alfred Lord Tennyson, 1830
