When UPS or FedEx hands a package off to the post office for delivery, how long would you expect it to take from that point? The next day? Two days? Three? Four?

According to UPS tracking, the last component for the new computer was handed off to the *local* post office last *Wednesday*. If it's not here today, I know an 8YO who'll beg me to just buy one at Fry's.

(Of course, if it is here, he'll beg to stay up late while I install the OS, thinking he'll get to play games right away. Nope!)

Corporate social media is a trainwreck that profits from the fact that you can't look away.

@KelsonV Bumblebee's in town - with a puncture! :-)

Yes, I know, "transformer down in the roadway" on a traffic alert doesn't mean what it sounds like it should...

Best things I've read on today's npm brouhaha:

- medium.com/@jsoverson/exploiti
- gist.github.com/dominictarr/9f

I can't count the number of times I've handed over control of an npm package I owned to some random person on the internet. It used to be considered a best practice, a solution to OSS maintainer burnout. Ah well.

I keep forgetting to post about it, but the last time I went back to this restaurant I noticed someone had scratched out the W on the WOMEN's room sign, leaving it to say OMEN.

A fascinating 'rainbow' swamp, created by natural oils forming a layer. Needs very calm conditions for it to be seen.
