Look at someone, in the eyes, and smile at them today.

Even if they don’t smile back—those are the ones who need it the most.

I'm going on a media diet for a few weeks. See y'all on the flip side!

“I Swear” by All-4-One just started playing in the restaurant and people started looking around at each other, unable to hold a straight face.

How do we know what’s going on in the world? Our government tells us! 😭

I'm so fed up with all those web apps & browser tabs, I wrote my own Mastodon client in Go & QML 😊

I know that's quite the tease, but soon enough I'll release this publicly - and if you're really curious, with a bit of digging around you can actually already find it online. You know, just in case you want to join in and help me develop this thing 😆

These wireless chargers at the airport work through the packaging. Nice!

(Would suck to buy one in a hurry and discover someone had already drained it though!)

I found dozens of old 3.5" floppy diskettes at my in-laws place of business. They have no way of reading them, so I said I'd pull everything I could off of the disks and put it on a USB drive.

Interesting that about 50% of the disks are fine and I was able to read all the files. The other half have been partially readable--able to recover some of the files.

We take for granted how reliable our storage is today compared to 30 years ago.

#GospelToday (Jn 20:6-9)
When Simon Peter arrived after him, he went into the tomb and saw the burial cloths there, and the cloth that had covered his head, not with the burial cloths but rolled up in a separate place.

Then the other disciple also went in, the one who had arrived at the tomb first, and he saw and believed.

For they did not yet understand the scripture that he had to rise from the dead.

Just once I want the hacker in the movie to pull up a man page or google something he can't quite remember.

I'm in a funk today. Can't get past the idea that half my coworkers are disappointed/mad at me. Maybe I'm imagining it. But the feeling is real. 🙏
