For a while I've thought about using the name "Zanzibar" for one of my software projects. Thanks a lot google for beating me to the punch:

it's even a good project too.

Also, in the spirit of sharing, my go-to gazpacho recipe is based in large part off of this awesome article:

The author perhaps comes off as a bit haughty, but the recipe is so good precisely because it goes out of its way to be anything other than that deep-red, viscous soup that you'll find in most restaurants. I'm pretty sold on this idea that great gazpacho isn't supposed to look good. It's just supposed to taste amazing.

I found out this morning that a store near my house sells jamón ibérico, so I've gone a bit overboard and have been making a bunch of Spanish food today. Gazpacho + sangria + some light tapas. And sure, tapas are maybe a weird thing to make just for yourself, but to hell with that logic and this ham is delicious!

my landlord green-lit the dog for next year.

My body is still operating on central europe time which is awesome cause I feel like I'm being so productive when I wake up at 5am in the morning

If you've ever wondered how books get onto, this is how

So after some research I've concluded that some leaves on my plant show signs of over-watering and other leaves show signs of under-watering. What the hell have I done?

tfw when you're desperate to get your hands on a specific book and the library closes at 5pm on sundays and nobody's ever thought to make an ebook of the damn thing

The rules for the honorific "Reverend" are somewhat unclear to me, but it doesn't appear to be necessarily religious.

I think I could very rightfully decide to call myself "The Reverend devlaf" which tbh sounds kinda cool.

Anybody have experience, good or bad, using Brave browser?

(to be clear, I'm genuinely curious; not jumping ship on firefox with the knee-jerkers w.r.t the recent extensions/normandy stuff, that's just coincidental timing)

I wouldn't mind living in a world with more lasers.


So old-school records really don't play for very long - you get maybe four or five songs per side.

Did folks in bygone days, like, get up during sex to flip the record over? Genuinely curious...

trying to plan a trip in may and it's taking me forever. Because I have so many good options!

My old manager just messaged me this; I don't think I've ever received a better compliment:

Recruiter: “So what would you say your strengths are?”
Devin: “Deleting code.”
Recruiter: “Cool, so like, fixing bugs?”
Devin: “No, just removing code.”
Recruiter: “I don’t understand, is the code broken?”
Devin: “No, it just shouldn’t be there.”
Recruiter: “Ok, well... what’s your favorite language to write in?”
Devin: “Again, I’m less interested in writing code, and more interested in deleting code.”

I asked one of the IT helpdesk people at my office if they do battery disposal and they said yes. But they also seemed really confused when I pulled a big old battery out of my backpack. I guess they meant like double-a's?

home fire alarms should have a button for "shut the hell up for the next 15 minutes, I'm just cooking, okay?"

that would be totally reasonable

I don't think I've ever managed to change the battery on my watch and not injure myself in the process

will someone, for the love of god, pretty, pretty please ... teach me how to dougie?
