Scoped out a pretty nice apartment complex after work this evening. I think I'll wait for a unit I really like to open up at the end of the month and then pull the trigger. I'll need to see what my options are with my current lease, but this hour and fifteen minute one-way commute every day has got to stop.

Getting lunch from one of my favorite spots in this town. I need to get my fix while I can; I won't be coming here too much after I move.

Feels a bit weird being home after posting up for a week at a hotel to make my commute a little easier. I'll be looking at apartments next week, headed on a work trip the week after, and then hopefully moving soon after I'm back.

Please do not let your web app hijack the control-F/command-f shortcut in a browser window. I need it more than you do.

That feeling when you finally figure out what's wrong with your code... which actually ended up being multiple things... and now I'm not sure how it was even as close to functioning as it was originally. 🤓

Firefox's new Privacy Network (don't call it a VPN) is a good effort. But if you're going to use it, I suggest trusting it as much as you trust Cloudflare, not as much as you trust Mozilla or Firefox.

I program for over 20 years. I just closed some tabs from yesterday:

"how to create directory in python"
"concat lists python"
"load 2 models tensorflow"
"how set pythonpath"

and some others.

And yes. I have a masters degree in informatics.

You don't need to learn things that you rarely need & are just 1 duckduckgo away by heart. Knowing that they exist and what to search for is sufficient.

Important are the thing you cannot search. Concentrate on those.

We all know that Google (with Chrome-ium) has at least close to 90% of the browser marketshare on the internet.

Which is your primary browser on your computer?

Remember that Brave, Opera and Edge are Chromium derivatives. I consider Safari to be separate since it's Webkit and not Blink.

My Discovery Weekly playlist kind of sucks this week. Unfortunate, but they can't all be fire.

Sweet, my phone just got Android 10. I've been pretty lukewarm on this device for the couple of months I've had it, but at least having a Pixel means I get the new OS immediately.
