I really hope these rumors are true about the Apple Watch Series 4. I was already planning to upgrade my Series 0 to whatever came out this year, but I'm really excited about a bigger display with more complications.


I was a big fan of Louis CK for years, but I’m no longer interested in what he has to say. Comedy is full of people (esp. women) way more deserving of your laughs. He’s done literally nothing to make amends or show he’s learned anything.


Really love how easy it is to start using Honeycomb. Documentation is great, and there's not much setup needed to start getting data!


I can’t handle how good The Fifth Season is! My library loan for it ran out because I’m slow so I just bought it. Very excited that it’s a trilogy.


Finally rewatching Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood because I'm as emotionally ready for it as I'm going to get.


I'm spending a bunch of time writing and updating internal documentation and honestly I'm loving it.


I did some work in JavaScript today and the issue I encountered for a really small change made me angrier than I've been in the last few months. JS development clearly does not suit me.


Does anybody with a USB-C MacBook of some kind have a hub/HDMI/power adapter they actually like? Work gave me this one but it's really finicky with the Dell monitor. Often, the display doesn't detect the MacBook is connected.


I'm pretty sure the official Elm guide used to have a page about using WebSockets, but it doesn't seem to be there anymore. There's a bunch of other new stuff that is interesting, but I happen to need those docs now.


I’m very good at cooking and rubbed my eye as I was chopping jalapeños. Would not recommend.


I think Battle for Azeroth is the first time I'm playing a WoW expansion as it's first coming out. It's really fun!


The density of quests in Battle for Azeroth is super high! I honestly feel a little overwhelmed by how much there is to do. It’s probably better than there not being enough content though.



Does anyone else talk to themselves via commit messages or issue tracker comments? I find that I use those things as a sort of rubber ducky of conversation with myself. It's a good thing, I think: documents the thought process that goes into fixing things or planning features.


Just fixed a bug that was adding two minutes to build times for no good reason!


When it comes to work stuff, I think I've been killin' it this week and it feels really good.



Started building a web frontend this weekend in Elm. I think I’m in love! 😍
