Reflecting on my group interview this week and I have to say, if I don’t get the position, it’s a lot better than not knowing why.
Thinking a lot about the web of trust.
That feeling when you spend an hour debugging why your ssh key isn’t accepted then you realize the git url you copied also included the
git clone that you had already typed.
Has anyone ever participated in a group interview where all the candidates are included?
Minute into the new Drive By Truckers and it’s just what the doctor ordered.
I’m fortunate to still not worry about a roof over my head or eating, but the strain of not finding a job & the PUA long gone, it’s rough. Can not even begin to imagine what those that don’t have my safety are dealing with. It’s inhumane.
Trying to zoom out a little. Feels like I’ve been looking through the microscope too long. The kicker in this piece from @ishaantharoor is why I think we need to be wary of over hyping everything we see that looks outrageous. <https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/2020/10/06/us-election-biden-trump-putin-russia/>
Digital Ocean just launched the product I’ve been waiting for. I’ve been watching their development & new features & now they just rolled them all into a nice package. Will check off a big box. <https://www.digitalocean.com/products/app-platform/>
I’m going to keep sayin this in as many ways as possible. Please, anything election related, check the time stamp before retweeting. Take a critical minute to confirm before amplifying. 4 weeks.
The algorithmic timeline is what will kill us all.
Thinking of the recent story about a wedding where there was an outbreak & 5 people died. They weren’t at the wedding but caught it from someone who was.
I’m probably going to regret not taking the dude at the convenience store up on a street fight after I snapped at him for calling the clerk a "Chinese bitch." Mind you he waited until he was far away before he did.
A lot of talk on the interwebs today about spreadsheets vs databases. As with most tech, there is no one size fits all solution, and it’s about the right tool for the job.
You know the cliche, if all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.
Every once and awhile I remember I experience Twitter in a very different way than most.
In more exciting news I just saw a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher. Fall migration is on.
I have zero empathy for a grown ass man who has downplayed and lied about the seriousness of this virus since day one. My thoughts are with the "essential" workers his entourage has endangered.
Started watching Utopia last night & let me tell you it wasn’t what I was expecting.
The iOS notification that your watch is charged is a nice touch.
Playing the game how many bots do I really have (multiple API key exposure warnings from Twitter)
Twitter has become less enraging after I scroll through all the tech startup BS on LinkedIn for a few minutes. Considering trolling for a few days before I delete my account.
The Internet did the same thing for politics as the teletype. I wonder if there are any lessons to be learned from that.
One thing I’ve learned the hard way on LinkedIn is that recruiters are just meeting quotas for number of applicants. How naive I have been.
Spent past 3 days in the water, at least 20 hours. The back to reality shock is something, but highly recommend getting outdoors if you can.
New Apple Watch OS has vibrate to wake. Was probably best feature on Mi Band.
Audubon just sent me an email about free estate planning and do they know something I don’t?
One of the hardest things about looking for web work for me has been defining myself as a bug fixer and less of a bug creator.
See the truth.
Tell the truth.
How is everyone’s sourdough starter doing?
Preparing myself for what will be my last rejection letter on my journey as professional web developer. Time to turn the page.
