Phew! Just got the full power suit in the space pirate mother ship in Metroid: Zero Mission.
I can appreciate the tension when playing as armour-less Samus, but that's a different game than the game I've been enjoying the rest of the playtime. I will say that "stealth" section certainly does make you appreciate the fully powered armour!

All cell phones are pwned because they have proprietary, buggy radio firmware provided by just three few companies that are completely beholden to the government for certification.

I did a mobility exercise because my back has been in really rough shape this week. I wound up pinching a nerve or something in my right leg.
Very uncomfortable!
Just waiting for the muscle relaxer to kick in.

I drew a picture of Squirtle for my son that I think turned out quite well.

Today. 5PM, it's gone forever.

I'm auctioning this special edition of #fmjail to help human trafficking survivors expunge their records. You won't own this any other way.

Full on cold today.

My back is still out of whack from mountain biking last weekend. Oof! I bet heavily loaded squats and deadlifts while recovering exacerbated things.

Our son got sent home from kindergarten on Thursday due to a runny nose. We kept him home Friday and he seems mostly recovered now.

His birthday is today. We decided to postpone his party, but not everyone RSVP'd, so we might get someone showing up to a rescheduled party.

Anyway, life is keeping things interesting. :-)

I really wish OSS communities would stop defaulting to Discord or Slack. Your software isn’t a lifestyle. I don’t want to live with the goddamn thing. I want a forum I can visit once in a while, not to take out an attention mortgage.

Does anyone know of any article series or video series where they look at old tech that is still useful today?

It would be a fun way to look at this stuff I think. Like what have we left behind that is legitimately still useful that we can save from landfills and avoid buying the purchase of new things at the same time?

I more than doubled our greater vancouver food bank donation. It's not huge, but we are now giving $75 a month.

There, I reached out to see if I can increase my monthly donation to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank.

If it's not clear, OSX is the host and some Linux flavour would be the guest.

What's the best VM to use for local Linux dev on a Mac?
I've used both VirtualBox and VMWare in the past.
Superficial or hyper-personal reasons are fine.

It is so weird to me to see people use a subshell in VSCode as the main terminal interface to their computer.


Facebook is a rotten company, rotten from the top down, its founder, board and execs are sociopaths and monsters, committers of non-hyperbolic crimes against humanity. They lie, they cheat, they steal. They are some of history's greatest villains.

Because Facebook is a terrible company run by terrible people, it periodically erupts in ghastly scandal. Sometimes whistleblowers or reporters reveal historic crimes, including (but not limited to) deliberately helping to foment genocide.


Why pulling plastic out of the open ocean is futile, and what approaches could actually work instead-especially if they got the kind of funding that that flash project with the vapourware booms does:

Life hack? Pro tip? 

Strive to spend more time and energy liking things than hating on things.

Maybe I should just go back to C++.
I don't care for web dev, I don't care for any of the backend web dev languages except for maybe Go.
I don't care for Rust for various reasons.
I'd do C, but I think C jobs are few and far between. Mind you; I'd way rather write C than C++.
