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: https://storage.googleapis.com/pub-tools-public-publication-data/pdf/0749e1e54ded70f54e1f646cd440a5a523c69164.pdf
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: https://slate.com/culture/2012/07/how-to-make-authentic-gazpacho-first-accept-that-its-not-a-tomato-smoothie.html.
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 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.”
