My boy @Cellivar makes such a lovely squeaky mess when you treat him right.

This is way better than it has any right to be.
I'm happy to announce that I will be moving to the Bay Area in January, so as to reduce the number of hours I spend flying in planes just to see them <3
When designing a user interface, imagine some old woman using it, say Margaret Hamilton, and she's clicking your app's buttons and saying to you, as old people do,
"Young whippersnapper, when I was your age, I sent 24 people to the ACTUAL MOON with my software in 4K of RAM and here I am clicking your button and it takes ten seconds to load a 50 megabyte video ad and then it crashes
I'm not even ANGRY with you, I'm just disappointed."
I'm generally starting to really understand that my parents are just kinda bad at having friends. My father tends to not want to actively participate in family things, and my mother isn't good at getting herself into friend groups or other things. As a result they're kinda lonely these days without myself or my sister in town anymore.
I think this holiday season I'm going to put some active effort into reaching out to friends.
I have a build to get working, a database deployment to do, release approval paperwork to fill out, and code to FUCKING deploy, and a vulnerability report to read.
And by the time I'm done with today I'm going to be in the Bay Area preparing for an interview tomorrow.
HOOAH this week is going to destroy me
After several hours of general BS, I have determined that my cable modem has a fault.
Well, I determined that after an hour or so of mucking about. It took several hours of general BS to convince Arris that my modem has a problem and that they need to send me a new one under warranty.
Naturally they won't pay shipping to get the old one off to them. That's on me. Oh well. Guess I'm going with a different brand for my next cable modem purchase.
