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.
Politically positioned redemption stories are not my jam.
Shot my shot. Now to see if it gets me a conversation.
I’d like to thank @NBCJoshua for his final thought last night on the power of silent protest.
If you are scared of the monster under the bed, it’s not because you are mentally ill, it’s because someone you trust put that thought there. If you are sheltered, lack critical thinking & intellectual curiosity, that fear will manifest. And probably be exploited.
The most difficult thing I think in the hiring process for me is the "professional references that can speak on WordPress experience."
How am I not surprised they are adding a paywall feature to Tumblr? The opportunity was right there to build an open microblogging platform and they went 180° opposite.

Peace of mind is being able to turn on silence unknown callers.
I see a lot of people (mostly tech) with all kinds of opinions about online school, as if in class school was a perfect example of learning before the pandemic. I challenge each of you to learn more about your school board & get involved if you care that much.
Just got my first public records request fulfilled. I wanted to see the emails between superintendent & head of county health dept for myself that approved the opening of schools.
Not feeling much love for Spectrum today. Have the service issues with FIOS been resolved in the Tampa Bay area?
I am neither a data journalist nor a woodworker but I do enjoy @dataeditor’s newsletter. You might too <https://databae.substack.com/p/tax-and-cracks>
Honesty in release notes, compliments of iTerm2 – Many improvements to auto command completion, making it actually usable.
I’m so tired of banks taking days to do a transfer yet a transaction can occur in seconds on Saturday night.
Night blooming Hoya
I’m hoping the adoption of web extensions in Safari means someday @1Password X support. Fact 1Password can’t differentiate between Safari and Safari Tech Preview still is drag.
Finally built up the courage to discuss ADD with my primary care doctor today when in for annual and get my anxiety prescription re-filled. He referred me to someone. 3 months to get a tele-health appointment. Le sigh.
Big shout out to blogs. If you still maintain a personal website, you rock. Even if your last post was "haven’t blogged much lately, been doing some long needed updates to my CMS", that is still awesome. That’s part of it!
I wonder if 20 years from now economists & pundits will be arguing whether the deal where Dems gave up Warren’s PPP oversight w/teeth for Bernie’s $600 was a mistake?
My new favorite feature to me of @CodePen is exporting a private pen to a private GitHub Gist
Using HTML tables and inline CSS to build a "web page" like it’s 1999. Did I mention Canvas is garbage?
