We went to the mall today to get Secret Santa gifts for some children in our family, and some of my wife’s coworkers.

She suggested we go into Spencer’s, which... history will note I did not object to.

Last time I was in there it was all thinly veiled “heh heh sex, right?” I am here to tell you they have dropped that veil. And also added a fuckton of weed shit. Which... gotta appeal to the youths, I guess.

The interplay between the words that come out of Brad’s mouth and the subtitles on It’s Alive are *chef’s kiss*

Brad: “Your whole life, uh, shellfish, allergic?”
Pop up: “some assembly required on that sentence”

You should still not visit YouTube in solidarity for the next few days. If you have crossed the picket line because you didn't know, don't do it again. There's not a physical line for online strikes; there's no way to know unless you're told.

Open to everybody, but send me an @ if you join!

One year a non-software person did most of the puzzles in Excel. Someone coded one of them in Unity and had it play out as a 3D battle between armies. People play code golf, or learn a new language (I’m going with C#), etc.

But of course it unlocks at midnight: that’s way the hell past my bedtime so I’ll do 2019-01 in the morning.

In an hour and a half it’s December, which means will be live! Two coding puzzles unlock each day which can be done in any language by people of any skill set! (They can get tricky but you’ll learn things like regex lookaheads, A* pathfinding, etc!)

Shit like this is why I did not include mastodon in my “how to keep in touch with me” email when I left my job
