I learned all of these rules about where you're allowed to put the cue ball after a scratch and I can't find any evidence of these rules online.

Day one of taking a break at a cabin in the woods. I guess I can catch up on tech articles with a mountain backdrop.

"The Linux Team Approves New Neutral Terminology"


Maybe it is just virtue signalling, but as a signal, it does very good job revealing the noise that doesn't share in any virtue.

Apparently mLab was purchased by MongoDB. I hate that these migrations are never transparent. I've gotta put fixing some Yorick installations into my queue.

It's a bad day in C++ land when you find yourself typing man calloc

"Governor declares State of Emergency, authorizes 1,000 National Guard troops to Atlanta"

"“Peaceful protests were hijacked by criminals with a dangerous, destructive agenda. Now, innocent Georgians are being targeted, shot, and left for dead,” Kemp said Monday. “This lawlessness must be stopped and order restored in our capital city. I have declared a State of Emergency and called up the Georgia Guard because the safety of our citizens comes first. This measure will allow troops to protect state property and dispatch state law enforcement officers to patrol our streets. Enough with the tough talk. We must protect the lives and livelihoods of all Georgians.”


His official statement makes it sound like a good thing. I can't help but feel like what's actually happening is he finally got an excuse most people would accept for sending more armed people into black neighborhoods in order to murder them.

It feels really good getting to work on Comp/Con. Over the weekend I went down the bug list. One of them was actually my fault. I missed integrated mounts when adding emoji to the statblock generator. Today all of my pull requests for that work were accepted.

It's amazing how many little things slip through even in a project like this. On the other side it means the fan base is engaged and really using it. I know I am.


I enjoyed my short time outside today. Then the allergens came...

My copy of Super Mario 64 still has valid save files...

In case you were wondering you cannot pick up an N64 after nearly two decades later and immediately execute running strats.

Hamilton got me. The last movie that did that was Requiem for a Dream. Simply amazing.
