This guy carried me over 500 miles of blue highways to Lake Placid and back over the weekend without a single hiccup. I think it's earned some TLC this week that I've been putting off for too long: re-timing, new points, little tach work, bigger break work.

well, I have confirmed that more alcohol does _not_ fix bizarre tcl/modelsim comp issues.

It took me way too long to realize that my non-signal contacts weren't just ignoring my group messages.

Now I'm here trying to find my update history so I can figure out when this started 馃檨

I've started writing more consistently again, which is fun and idk maybe productive or smth

US politics are astoundingly depressing

what I would give for Josiah Bartlet on the ticket for 2020 ...

kinda really digging a few tracks by ROLE MODEL rn

Why the heck did I wait so long to get a decent dock for this laptop?


devlaf boosted

another silly anti-theft measure for the bike while I wait on a new lock/chain

All night I've been trying to make "O Superman" work as the seed for a good station across a couple different music streaming services, and honestly I'm kind of disappointed.

no idea how the trig scale on the back works yet

I'm having a stupid amount of fun playing with this. yay for dumb, cheap eBay purchases!

Also, in case anyone was wondering, 37 * 42.4 is .... about 1570?

Thinking about wiping my personal computer this weekend and doing a full reinstall -- I haven't really had that feeling of a pristine environment in a long time, and while I've been using arch linux as my daily driver for over a decade (ugh that makes me feel old) I think I'm starting to feel the call of the Void. Could be fun to try, and we could all do with a little less systemd, right?

Also, speaking of login issues, the last update to the lastpass extension broke the app for many firefox users over a week ago. The only response to my ticket was "reinstall firefox, clear all of your custom privacy settings, and resintall the lastpass extension." First of all, no, and second of all, I'm paying monthly for this service, right?

I've been keeping an eye on this audio mixer on ebay for a couple of days and right before the sale time I tried to put in a bid. And then ebay hits me with some 2FA prompt that takes me a minute to complete via a text message and I missed out on the whole thing. Like, thanks ebay, but also what the hell!

err, I guess I spoke too soon, the plaintext page only has a very abridged version of the article 馃槖

"Decline and visit plaintext site"

Holy crap NPR, way to go! This is first time I have ever seen a website display a cookie warning that's not user-hostile, i.e. "press accept or you can gtfo"

logging into everything is so much more annoying when the browser extension doesn't work -- idk much about the firefox addon system (store?) or w/e, but it'd be nice if they made it easier to do targeted downgrades. It would also be nice if LP filled out the release notes field on an update.

The latest update of the lastpass firefox extension has broken login for some users, including me. 馃檨

oh well, ticket filed.
