I've attempted these workshops now about 20 times and, despite the massive "interest" I receive with people asking for invites, almost no one ever shows up. Today I had 2 people out of 20. This is the corporate culture here.

I'm really sick of NFC East games. Give me something else!

First real snow of winter and there are cars in the ditch already.

Had a discussion about conferences with our director. My argument is that the uselessness of 95% of conference talks that are dull/bland/boring massively outweighs the 5% that aren't a total trainwreck. Though if you're going for the networking, I think that's a different case

Today was one of those days where everything at work, everything about my company, everything about my team made me want to quit

I could be wrong, but this Alabama-Georgia game seems like it's the real national championship game. I don't think anyone wants to play these teams

I hate referrals, but I'm doing it anyway. I've been using Fi for a year and they've finally opened it up to all phones. It's cheap and the service is great, so if you're thinking of switching carriers and don't mind Google, give it a go.
You can get $20 in credit using my stupid link: g.co/fi/r/VNA3F9

It's time for Letters to Cleo. It's probably always time for that 🕑

I'm probably an idiot but I'm struggling to ssh into my ipv6-only instance on Vultr. I wish it were as straightforward as ipv4 ssh

I needed to read up on yum commands. Had to type `man yum` into my terminal.

I realize most of you don't care about sports, but the Bears are really fun to watch this year. It's about time!

BTW, for my nerdy friends, if you aren't following CuriousMarc on Youtube you should be. He and his friends do epic vintage computing restorations and other things. His videos are usually frakkin epic, but the latest series may be THE MOST epic. The restoration of an Apollo Guidance Computer.
