The main point of my Strange Loop talk this year was literally “talk to people and write stuff down”

Thanks a lot! I’m glad to hear it’s a temporary thing and not a permanent change

is there a reason that Pending Transactions all now show from “Temp”, instead of the merchant name like they used to? It’s incredibly useless like this. What’s even the point of showing pending transactions if we can no longer see where they’re from?

> He did plug it in once, but because he wasn’t able to make insulation for the wires, the toaster started melting itself about 5 seconds in. Thwaites considers it a partial success. That sounds like most software MVPs

They could be! How else do you rationalize people continuing to wear cargo shorts?

iTunes (in Canada, at least) has preorders up for a November 19 release of “Millenium Actress”. I can’t recall the last update on your quest to find it streaming, maybe this helps.

While I'm at it, do I know any Toronto-area devs with Salesforce experience looking to work at an awesome company?

Should we repeat / conf () already next year? What about adding an optional training day?

Oh sorry. They both released today, but the Beats were introduced and reviewed a few weeks ago. The AirPods were only unveiled on Monday

No. One pair of headphones last week, one pair of earbuds today

The Beats Solo Pro seem to fold up pretty nicely

I’m planning on trying on the Beats Solo Pro, to see if they’d work as my new desk headphones. I already have Powerbeats Pro _and_ v2 AirPods, so I’m going to skip out on AirPods Pro 😀
