My younger self did not have "bookstore's data center causes widespread failures in vacuum cleaners" on his list of future events.

Claiming it’s easy to get a printer working, let alone with CUPS? What’s next - are you about to join Qanon?

The depressing thing is that Trump is but a symptom. The epistemological divide is deep and will keep throwing up new crises.

There are so many heartbreaking stories in this pandemic, but there's something especially bleak about all the hate spewed on someone actively trying to fight the disease

This is another day when I find it useful to remember that time isn't the fourth dimension - it's the fourth and fifth dimension

My dad was a firefighter, and always working holidays. Very rarely did we celebrate on the day. This means none of us are attached to the actual day. The holiday is when YOU decide it is. If we have to wait for a vaccine and have Christmas in March, I won’t feel bad at all.

Make sure you're not building a "half-arsed superficial private cloud" - do yourself a favour and read this evergreen article by on internal platforms: (We use Evan's excellent definition and criteria in 📗)

I'm glad you liked the article, but I didn't write it. The author is - I'm just the publisher.

Vermouth goes off in a couple of months or so, so you need to practice regular cocktail discipline. I use Cocchi Torino. Also partial to Carpana Antica. I found to be a useful guide to vermouth.

With writing, there are varied ways that work for different people. But many people I work with benefit by just getting words written down, and worry about making it all good later.

One thing to be careful of with any vermouth based drink - make sure you have a good quality vermouth and that it's fresh. There's a big difference between stale/cheap vermouth and The Good Stuff.

It's looking like we've turned the corner at my house, so I'm going to tell you a story about love and a pandemic. It starts two weeks ago Monday. I taught class that morning, but by lunch I knew something was up. By afternoon, I knew I was sick.
