Myers-Briggs nonsense 

I know this shit is just astrology for folks that went to business school, but it is all good fun (I hope)

16 personalities came up in conversation at work the other day. The last time I took the quiz, I was an architect (INTJ?) I took it just now and I'm now a Visionary Advocate INFJ-A.

The change makes sense because I've been trying to be more cooperative and empathetic. I suppose my efforts are working. The change is quantifiable haha ๐Ÿ˜‚

my problem with is not that men are on top, it's that there is a top at all

Friendly reminder: this isn't Twitter.

When are we going to have a computer that focuses the window I'm looking at?

I think programmers are afraid of planning because they're in denial that 99% of our job is taking data from one place, transform it, and put it somewhere else.

"Most mobile connections are still 2G or 3G. The Web overall is getting slower. JavaScript is the most expensive asset. We are drowning in JavaScript. What we make matters." - @slightlyoff telling it how it is. Remember to set performance budgets, folks! ๐Ÿ™ #SamsungCreate

How many microservices does it take to turn on a lightbulb

I have a really good memory for customers. If there's a regular at my store, chances are I know them by sight and name. But I'm very quiet and don't often use names even for friends/family. I just talk in their direction.

But I noticed people assume I don't know them. Even if I see them every day. And then they feel like I don't care, I'm just the person between them and their meds.

So I started greeting everyone I know by name this week. And WOW. I did not realize how much that meant to people, but apparently it's a lot and it completely turns those interactions around.

And I feel really good about it. It's nice making people smile a little.


Can we fast forward 6 months when Rust's is ready to take over the world? As it stands, the web story still feels a bit too unstable to start praising it to co-workers.

Is there a free open source version of Google Home? I want to be able to control Harmony and Smartthings with my voice


I don't miss Facebook. The people I'm close with are on Signal and I keep tabs in a active, private way.

On FB, we passively keep tabs and no one really knows we care enough to pay attention to their lives. Comments often a battle of wills and ego rather than an opportunity to reach out.

My public life is now on public venues like Mastodon and Twitter where there is no illusion of privacy. I keep my secrets off those platforms.

Nice! "RustBridge is a workshop focused on getting underrepresented people with a background in another programming language to learn Rust and join the community."


In this example, it is impossible to access the value outside of a lock.

For instance, I'm trying to convince a coworker to use a higher-ordered function to protect access to a value that needs to be locked.

I'm an imperfect programmer. If there's a away to structure an API or use a compiler that saves my butt, I'm going to use it. That's why I really like Rust. Rust saves my butt (or it will if I ever use it in prod)

Ha, I just got "Test of the emergency broadcast system" on my phone. We live in the future.


After I removed the cruft, my accomplishment seems less significant. :/ Meh, whatever. I'm still proud of myself. I finally feel like a rustacean!
