My new assistant director that I report to at work started today. He sits next to me and immediately struck up a conversation about World of Warcraft when he saw the toys from BlizzCon at my desk since he also plays. I like this guy already.

I still need a new laptop. I was gunning for a new MacBook Air once they got announced, but after the announcement they seemed so... disappointing.

I have a whole pile of stickers that I need to put on *something*.

If the script I spent the day hacking together is actually what we end up using to fix this mess, it'll be both hilarious and infuriating. Not the least of which is because my team basically sat idle on the issue for nearly two months while the vendor continued to swear they were working on a fix.

So tired of fighting with a vendor every day for the past few weeks who over-promises and under-delivers when it comes to fixing their own broken implementation from a consulting engagement. I just need to survive another 10 days at work and then I'm done for the rest of the year.

I may have spent 9 hours playing the new games I got on GOG today after surviving 4 days with family in from out of town. No regrets.

Having family stay with you when you live in a small apartment and are an introvert is super stressful.

I already spent way too much on GOG's Black Friday sale. I'm basically drowning in cRPGs that I need to catch up on at this point. Luckily I'm going to have 3 full weeks off next month, so hopefully I can get some solid game time in.

I'm capable of making a half-decent Old Fashioned. 🥃

And don't even get me started on this Majin Vegeta shirt with a tiny kid Trunks on the back that she got me!

Look at some of the sick stickers she brought me for my next laptop!

Just got home after spending the day hanging out with an awesome friend now that she's back from her vacation in Hawaii. It was a great day.

Anonradio @snowdusk_ show!!

So fun and so good in com mode chat :-)

We broke 50 listeners! Wow!

Now I want to see 100 listeners.

We can do it.

Another people hit sure, but how about another 50 mastos get a free ssh account on Do it.

And many linux/bsd people stand ready to help you over any hurdles (which are slight really)

Please boost this wonderful site. And some great streaming music. Non-capitalist commercial free.

It's another super boring weekend, but at least I got to sleep in and I'm not working.

I just got booked for back-to-back-to-back-to-back meetings this morning. WTF?

I finally have Internet again! Some genius at my ISP actually disconnected my line while hooking up a new tenant in the unit below me. Once the tech got it sorted out, he kindly labelled my line so that this (hopefully) doesn't happen again. Still pretty ridiculous that I was out for 2 full days entirely through the fault of a technician...

Technician is here. Fingers crossed I'll have an Internet connection again soon...

So almost nothing in PowerShell is case sensitive *except* for certain standard methods. Wat?

Meaning that this is case sensitive:


But this isn't:

if($array -contains "Wat")

Though I can make it case sensitive with:

if($array -ccontains "Wat")

And from old blog posts I'm seeing, apparently this behavior has changed at some point between v3 and v6? I guess I should stick to operators more when possible.

My Internet connection is still fubar. The earliest someone from the ISP can get here is Thursday. After scheduling that I headed out to grab lunch and noticed the connection outside is pretty wrecked. I think the mowing crew must have destroyed it. And my whole building is likely out.
