Pinned toot

Hi, all! I finally got round to setting up my social.coop profile. Looking forward to toot (?) with you all!

I'm most online on evenings CEST and weekends.

Q: are there projects out for code generators based on generative models fine tuned in a single language, say Python?

In my internal discourse I classify tickets as "a bunch of bullshit" and "interesting", but I try not to let it leak.

Cogito ergo sum, or one is what one computes.

Had I decided to keep doing email until "really finishing with it" I would not have gotten to the higher throughput items, and I would be unhappier and probably objectively worse off. Pomodoros are powerful partly because they let you reap scheduling benefits like this for cheap.

I ended up doing the two last pomodoros in one essentially, which offsets the extra pomodoro for email. This kind of offsetting/averaging of errors is not uncommon when predictions are involved.

Took a detour for making and eating dinner, resumed after that.

Project goals and quarterly team goals were easier than expected thanks to the great work of my teammates and manager. So I have that going for me, which is nice :)

Show thread

Lots of felt regret on this one; some emails I responded I would have liked to respond sooner. As a procrastinator this is what I fear; I need to make a conscious effort not to give up and go do something else. But the pomodoro helps :)

Next up: project/quarterly goals.

Pomodoro two: completed one high level pass through email, leaving 48 to triage further. Took 3 inline actions (where you answer/take action immediately instead of after triaging) that took 10'.

Email needs more work, so I'm doing one bonus pomodoro. Will shoot for 5 total.

Pomodoro one: 5' unplanned went to IM to manage something time sensitive. Then email system level; I think I made the "right" two changes so that my email backlog is more manageable next time.

I'm writing this during the 5' pause. Me hago unos mates.

Show thread

One pomodoro to transfer my quarterly goals from the project plan to my team tracker.

Show thread

One pomodoro for booking meetings and sending out a short proposal related to my project.

Show thread

Meta: apply one round of [[prediction framework]].

Two pomodoros for email. I have hundreds of emails unread (in some sense: pending one round of filtering after having applied one already automatically). I need to resist redoing my filters altogether; but something needs fixing

Show thread

It's been a while since I did a proper thread though, so let's see.

To begin with: I'm using [[pomodoro]]. Target for tonight is just four cycles. What can I do in 2h? Whatever I can do in four pomodoros.

Show thread

Live tweeting while I work: could that work? Could that make sense?

Perhaps it'd be cathartic to vent in the abstract.

Show thread

Started work again today. So far so good; I feel noticeably better than before the holidays.

Spent all day so far in meetings, yet they were useful meetings, so that was alright. Now for the moment of truth: do I have the energy to do the actual work (tm) after meetings?

I spend a lot of time at my desk in standing position so I think I'll start sitting here.
