I'm a software developer who's interested in many different things, some of which I want to try one day. I live in Abbotsford, BC, an hour outside of Vancouver.

I like photography, and my son and I are taking ukulele lessons together.

I post frequent pictures of the house CEO, a tuxedo cat.

In dreams, cats can indicate good or bad luck coming to you. Unless you own a cat. Then it's probably just a stand-in for an asshole.

I've had a Safari tear-off tab stuck in the middle of my Mac screen for an hour. It finally occurred to me to just quit Safari. Fixed.

I dreamed last night that I found four cats in the oven. The oven wasn’t on, they were just hanging around in there.

In 1993, Gary Hoy successfully demonstrated that you don’t have to be smart to be a lawyer.

The cat has taken to refusing his food from the fridge until it warms up. I don’t blame him, but the little shake of his fist at his bowl is pretty funny.

I’ve only seen one episode so far and I’m not going to binge it, but Kevin Can Fuck Himself is kind of amazing.

A physics doctor I know is nearly at the “will integrate for food” stage. He’s a smart guy but only in his field.

I’m not really a Rick and Morty fan, but I think the butter passing robot is possibly the most genius punchline in all of science fiction.

Also, I may have thought of this because of Star Trek the motion picture.

I never noticed this before but in Star Trek the motion picture Kirk pulls Decker off repairing the transporters and orders him to the bridge before the accident.

my dating site for chickens doesn't make enough for me to quit my job but it does help make the hens meet.

Sylvester just put his tail in my hot soup.

Cat: !!!!

I think I'm gonna eat it anyway.

when I was a kid candy cigarettes were still a thing. And I used to buy them because they had icing sugar you could puff, which was cool to puff OR eat.

It never tempted me to smoke a real cigarette. It was CANDY.

the cat has fallen asleep on my desk, blocking only the esc key.

from this point there's no going back!

Annoyance: So far, that's the only stale branch I want to keep.

"The system memory allocator free operation zeroes out all deallocated blocks in iOS 16.1 beta or later. Invalid accesses to free memory might result in new crashes or corruption, including NULL-pointer dereferences and non-zero memory being returned from calloc. (97449075)"

(Sigh of relief.) About time. it's been a shitty trade off for years.

Data integrity? We can't even spell it!

…there's a branch here called data_integrety.

is there some name for the construct/threat Homer issues here?

- I'm supposed to practice for an hour a day.
- I'll practice you!

Either IT has a policy of not sending public keys through email or lizard guy thought I was asking him to send me a new private key. Not sure which I'd root for, I think I just want to forget we had that conversation.

(I wanted to send him a new public key.)

sometimes I see people talking about when the best time to catch bugs is as a developer and I feel like I'd a smartass if I replied "writing fewer bugs is best."

Writing zero is probably impossible, of course, but writing fewer bugs would be pretty easy for a lot of developers. SLOW DOWN. Think more.

Marvel should do a movie about the Civil War between Avingers and Avongers.
