Do you ever get a reaction on one of your Slack messages and can tell immediately who did it without even checking?


Yay! A new Adventure Zone: Amnesty episode is out! I'd been getting withdrawals.


Cadence of Hyrule is the mashup I never knew I needed. The soundtrack would be exciting enough on its own, but we also get a whole game of this!?



I realized the other day that if an organization is toxic, it's always the fault/responsibility of leadership. Either they've failed to remove a toxic person from the organization, or they are themselves toxic.


I think a big part of why Swift was adopted so eagerly by the iOS dev community is from being stuck in a language without its features for so long. People were itching for them from experience with other languages, and couldn't resist pushing for adoption.


I was walking down the sidewalk and saw a speed limit sign, and my brain decided it needed to check if I was actually going under 25mph.


I unpacked all my Hue bulbs but I can't find which box has the hub for them!


If you're using Chrome, 1Password X definitely works a lot better than the Chrome extension that talks to the Mac app. I was almost never seeing prompts to save my generated logins, but 1Password X works much better.


I've used Swift, Go, and TypeScript enough now that putting the return type at the front of the function a la C looks wrong to me. It's no longer where I look for that information.


My house is now very full of boxes. Let the unpacking begin!


Very excited for all of my stuff to arrive at the new house tomorrow. I want my desk and my kitchen tools back!


We're getting a big-ass couch for the new house and I'm very excited about it.


This is my new best argument for why Fahrenheit is the better scale for weather temperatures.


All my stuff is in boxes but the truck isn't loading up until tomorrow. Feels like I'm living in a big hotel room that looks like my house.


This is possible in many message-passing languages, including Objective-C. I once took advantage of this to bridge Mocha BDD-style tests from Node into XCTest for reporting (by defining test methods with long names with spaces).


I should have mentioned that the new house is not here in Austin, it's in Littleton, CO! Finally making it back to the Denver area after several years away. It's exciting!


Today is packing day! Gonna have a lot of stuff in boxes by the end of the day. And last night I cooked the last meal I'll ever cook in Austin.



We're so close to closing on this house; tomorrow it will be over. It's been one of the most stressful things I've ever done, but at least once it's done I can...focus on the other incredibly stressful events in my life.
