Pinned toot

Don't often get to see this: a toaster approaching telophase in its mitotic process, about to pinch off its cell membrane. Nature is truly amazing

Going down for a while, while I change my lab's core networking over to 10Gbps. Should be back in an hour.

this pre-commit hook has saved my butt so many times

We had a "team building exercise" that was basically an excuse to get drunk and make Italian food. It ruled tbh

I need to update/replace a lot of the gear in my home lab environment and got a little carried away during a current inventory/network diagram:

The AC in my house does not work. Neither very legal nor very cool. I have a window unit for my room but hiding in here constantly is not great! Landlord has dragged his feet fixing it for over a month.

I'm so glad that Scott Dilbert, the creator of Dilbert, died before he could become a weirdo conservative politics dipshit or something

I have a ton of friends here, but that isn't enough for a bunch of reasons, including the fact that my romantic life (or lack thereof) is a total disaster. At 40 as of last week, it feels a lot like I just... failed, irrevocably, and that that hope for my life is functionally over.

So if I have nothing to lose, I might as well live somewhere that makes me happy instead of angry, anxious, frustrated and depressed.

I guess that's it life-update-wise.

Professionally, life is fucking fantastic, and I think that's the first time I've ever been able to say that in my 40 years of life (sadly my work as founder and CEO of my lemonade stand at age 6 went underappreciated). I can live anywhere in the country and work doesn't care, so I have a lot of options and a lot of mobility.

Not sure anyone pays attention to this account anymore, but:

Getting my car fixed over the next two days, which is actually fairly life-significant for me - it means I'll have the ability to pick up and move long distances. DC is really wearing on my soul - it's just an incredibly anxious, angry, type-A, hypercompetitive place, and I can't really handle that anymore. Way overdue for a change, probably to Austin or Portland.
