Things I’m thinking about lately Blackface This thing about blackface among Virginia political leaders is.. interesting and frustrating. Look: blackface is problematic. At some point, the culture matters, but it’s always been about poking fun of African-American people – it’s never been good. Ever. But now we’re seeing another witchhunt, and some of it has [...]

Thoughts of the Day, 2019/Feb/8

Things I’m thinking lately: Teamwork You can’t want me to excel and then get in my way. Well, you can, but you… shouldn’t. Date Formats Yes, I find I prefer year/month/day. It’s inherently sortable. It’s also really common in computing, and should be more common. Headings I’m trying to switch back to the headings format. [...]

Ah, new things and directions…. Someone on IRC this morning mentioned Volt.ws, a messaging client available for Windows, MacOS, and Linux. It’s really tiny. It’s also missing a lot of functionality still, but it can connect to Slack… and it’s tiny. It still doesn’t support Slack private messages, but once it gets those (which should [...]

Things I’m thinking about: I’m changing the format up today, because one of the entries is longer than usual. Trump and the Patriots It’s really annoying that people are mad at the New England Patriots because Trump likes them. I dislike the Patriots myself – I nearly cost myself a job after they lost to [...]

Impressions

Things I think about sometimes: I love the idea of being someone who might be described like “He only cares about the things that matter,” except loving that particular idea means that I… care about things that don’t matter. Darn it.My DJ name is rather obvious: “43rd to the Q.”Finally got a new phone! I’m [...]

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything here. I’ve been busy. But now that I’m here… I’m still not thrilled with the Gutenberg editor. It’s okay, but I just don’t care for it.I’ve been working on music, and that’s been eating what time I have left after work and family, so I haven’t been [...]

Things I’m thinking and feeling: I really don’t “blog” all that much. I record, I guess, and that’s sort of a “web log,” but I really don’t expose much of my innermost feelings – it’s like observations with a mirror in the way. I’ve always been that way when I write. Always.Today I’m going to [...]

Things I have travelled across: github-issues-maven-plugin generates a markdown file with a list of closed issues for a target milestone. Useful for creating release notes.The death of a child is always heart-wrenching. :( Rest in peace, little one, even though I only knew you through friends of friends.Bless social media for bringing people together… except [...]
