Having a baby in the house again reminds me how wonderful asynchronous communication is. @maiki and I have been having a slow conversation, and it's great.

I would prefer to be able to reply right away of course, but I just reply when I can, they reply when they can. It all works out. :)

"Rule of thumb: index for equality first—then for ranges." This source on database indexes is very, very helpful. use-the-index-luke.com

has such brutal items. Good thing I identified this!

RSS is the most useful information source in my life. I can't fathom why more people don't know about and subscribe to RSS feeds.

Just shook hands with Dave Gibbons, who is taking a tour of our Dark Horse offices. Super nice guy!

After lots of coughing last night, I'm wearing a mask now when I'm outside. It's not the best, but it's what I have. mastodon.sdf.org/media/tD3rAlj

Four out of five jobs on LinkedIn are postings with a sentence that says, "This is not a remote position."

My next project is definitely a better job board system for remote workers.

But in the meantime, where is the place to get remote work? I am a developer, webcrafter and IT specialist, if that matters.

That was amazing. :) Definitely going to get the family together again for the next one.

Someday, someday maybe I'll be able to get my son's attention as quickly as a faintly-heard train whistle can. :)

Just spent 2 minutes trying to start up my mail client, "Lightningbird" before realizing... that's not its name.

I just figured out calculating an angle between two points using .

I get a happy feeling when I get to use my rusty math brain. :)

@timotheus I am leaving them off interi.org, but I will have them on maiki.blog.

When I write to inform, I need deeper feedback, so I will have my email/jabber/whatever, so folks can contact me and we can discuss. For my blog, I want friends in passing to drop me little notes about what I am talking about.

So I *want* comments on the blog, but I don't want them on docs, tutorials, etc. Hence my breakdown.

@maiki man, I am seriously rethinking having comment sections even be on a blog post. It adds so much complexity.

Okay, new personal/informal/not worrying about how good I write blog at maiki.blog/. ^_^

Some folks like RSS feeds, but I don't recommend following that one yet. I am going to be back-tracking 12 years of posts, so it is gonna be a little weird for a bit, in that way. Then it will return to being weird in the usual way.
