If I was in charge of a media org, I would skip the campaign rally on Saturday. Complete blackout of a political event.
Not sure I’ve really learned to process dreams with friends who are dead (in real life, not died in the dream). Thanks for hanging out Rick…
Finally made the switch to @GitKraken as my primary GUI. Dont @ me.
That feeling when you have $work to do, but all you want to do is build a bot.
I think Mike Pence should be forced to carry Flynn full term.
We used to call that and NYE amateur night when I cooked professionally
Really would like to get into a serious rotisserie league this year. Anyone have an opening?
Who’s got the best waffle recipe? I vaguely remember an overnight recipe, but don’t remember who wrote it. @TheFoodLab?
No, you have goosebumps from that Tribe Called Quest performance.
Glad rest of the world is going to find out that @SturgillSimpson is the real deal.
What did you do today to take care of yourself? Thanks @kittenwithawhip
Quick test of micropub->blog->bridgy as next itch to scratch is better mobile posting.
Maybe not a deer in the headlights, but woefully unprepared.
Watching the Senate confirmation votes is like watching a rerun of yesterday’s lottery drawing…just hoping you read your ticket wrong.
Props to @rogerjohansson for having the earliest reference I have to flexbox – 2011!!<http://www.456bereastreet.com/archive/201103/the_css3_flexible_box_layout_flexbox/
Not sure what my TV is telling me, was on CSPAN when power went out, came back on the end of Raging Bull. “I coulda been a contender…”
Your Honor, I know punching Nazis is wrong. I have been counseled.
While watching Senate debate cabinet confirmations, I often picture their heads exploding due to uttering one too many liness of bullshit.
Anyone know off hand how to get @AtomEditor to use the beta version for the command line, i.e.

As I write this at 11:30pm, Cory Booker is speaking on the Senate floor. The Democrats have been holding the floor since noon today, and intend to do so until the 24 hour debate period ends. I’ll be honest, I’m not an expert on Senate rules, I find them to be back room voodoo, albeit steeped in tradition. Either way, the Senate Democrats drew a line in the stand on this nomination. Conceivably because there have been 2 Republicans(Murkowski and Collins) already voice their decision to not vote for DeVos, the thinking is it might be possible one more stands up to right wing nominee.
What stands out to me, and I’ve had the luxury of following the hearings, debates and floor speeches, that not one Republican has been able to articulate an argument for DeVos. All I’ve heard from them is “Obama got his nominees…had 9 confirmations by this point…”. But not one solid argument for her, her philosophies or her experience to ably manage the Department of Education. Sure, they’ve thrown out, “she loves children”, but that doesn’t make her qualified to lead a Cabinet level department of the United States or play a primary role in shaping public education.
Even Sessions, who I disagree with on practically every issue, could be argued as qualified to lead a department. Hell, even CEO Tillerson has the practical experience to lead a huge department and the background to lead large scale negotiations. (I simply disagree on principles that they should be in the respective offices.) So why are the Republicans standing so pat for DeVos? Spite?
Unfortunately, it most likely all about the money.
You know how some people save a bottle of favorite beverage for special occassion? For me it was Foce Awakens. Pretty happy with my decision
I think Obama criticized the decision not the justices directly.
You won this battle Redis, but I will win the war.
Devs in #Tampa. I need to get out of the home office and talk shop with live humans. Who’s up for some cofee/lunch tomorrow?
For the better part of my adult life, I worked in kitchens, starting as a dishwasher, working my way up to chef. And like any good chef, I never forgot the importance of that first position. Hell, I often referred to myself as chief cook and head dishwasher. I always explained to owners and other staff, dishwasher is the most important position in a kitchen. Everything breaks down if that person is missing, fails, or is simply mistreated and unhappy.
Thus I never strayed too far from the pots and pans. Often times, I would jump in and scrub pots, both as an example to the rest of the staff that no one person was above any job in the restaurant, and as a way to ground myself. While it isn’t a creative job, it gave me that mental break to think about a dish that was bouncing around my head, or an opportunity to breath mentally.
I’m still looking for that in web development. A task to bounce to that is both familiar and productive yet affords me an opportunity to consider a problem I’m tackling. I’ve experimented with coding standards, as I now use linters, but since it wasn’t something I’ve been doing since I started as a self-taught developer, I don’t have the muscle memory or comfort level to dive into a project and start cleaning up. That is more of something I do as I go.
The closest thing I’ve come up with is working on my own blog. It’s a place to experiment, break things, and most importantly, not a project with a deadline. If you are reading this on the site (or even via the feed) you most likely see the rough edges. I’ve become comfortable with them. I want to smooth them all, and have a running list of them, but as soon as I knock one item off, I find 2 more.
And that’s OK. It will always be that way, as again, I’m constantly experimenting, tweaking and most importantly, it is mine. My own personal space to do as I please and retreat to when I need a mental break.
I’m just going to float Trump put out the Dr story to mention the statins so he can back out for “health reasons.”
All kidding aside, it truly blows my mind that Republican Senators can stand on the floor & talk about SCOTUS nominee forgetting past year.
tfw you’re too intimidated to jump into an IRC channel and ask a question for fear it wiil be considered too basic.
