Playing with my Garmin InReach in the front yard. Guy comes over and asks "you flyin' a drone?"

"No, playing with my satellite messenger. When the shit hits the fan I can bounce messages off satellites to make sure my family is OK."

"So whatchu doin' with it now?"

"Seeing if it can transmit a poop emoji."

It's 4:11 AM. Why the hell am I still up?

Some cool Inspector Gadget graffiti on a train along the James River in Richmond, VA today.

Internet friends are real friends.

It's not up for debate. It's not my opinion. It's a statement of fact.

WATCH: LGBTQ activists host glitter-filled dance party to protest white supremacists

I'm 38 and have been programming since I was 8. 30 years. In those 30 years, outside of prescribed variable names in high school AP Comp Sci exercises I don't believe I have ever once used foo, bar, baz, or any other metasyntactic variables in any of my programs or documentation. I tend to be more descriptive than that. I'll at least go with do_the_thing(input1,input2). None of this f(foo,bar) nonsense.

It's a sad state of affairs when a hospital system can afford to run a sale on account balances. I mean, it's cool with me, saves me $376 to pay in full. We're only making monthly payments because they offered to split the bill up over a couple years with no interest. I can pay the whole thing. But shouldn't they already be charging as little as possible?

Looking north across the James River toward downtown Richmond, Virginia. Out for a walk on the T. Tyler Potterfield pedestrian bridge.

Some nights you just have to say "fuck it" and let Amazon deliver some sushi for dinner.

I totally thought this was a CNN headline for a minute.

Really... with Let's Encrypt and easy auto-renewals (and, in some cases, easy SSL certificate issuance!), there is absolutely NO reason to have a website that doesn't use HTTPS.

OK, I realize that's not true if your site is pre-existing. You still have to do the work to make HTTPS work properly without the browser complaining. But the major hurdles are GONE. Especially for brand-new websites, there's no excuse now.

This is Realtek's actual website

Best viewed at 800x600 with IE 6.0 or Netscape 7.02 or Mozilla Firefox 1.0.6 or higher.

I never thought I'd trust food from a state where the residents are too damn stupid to pump their own gas without blowing themselves up, but here I am eating a pizza in New Jersey. I hope I survive.
