This morning I realized that when Smudge tried to lie down on my keyboard I pushed the keyboard back to make room for her. This pushed my microphone back so it got too close to the speakers and folks started to get feedback during meetings. I spent a day and a half working with a headset because of that.
Steven Brust and Skyler White have a new book out and I’m super excited. Their previous books have been quite good. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09188GXHK

Val keeps printing out bills and testimony as part of fighting some of the boneheadedness going on in the Texas legislature. She ran the printer out of toner, used up the multiple reams of paper I accumulated testing them for fountain pens, and now my office looks like a print shop with a case of printer paper and spare toner cartridges sitting around.
The madness is scheduled to continue for a couple more weeks.
Started working about an hour early today, and it's giving me a good slow ramp back into the work headspace after 3 days off.
Also, at the start of each day I go over my notes from the day before and summarize them before stand up. Today that summary is almost a half page 😂 Probably good I have that extra time.
2 weeks ago almost, I parted ways with my current job. I have been working as some measure of programmer and sysadmin for 20+ years. I can learn anything needed, but mostly in Debian and Python is what I've worked with (I know a lot of languages tho including hard ones).
For health reasons I need something that is 20-30 hours a week and is 100% remote. I'll consider almost anything since it'd be cool to have a bit of a change of pace, so hit me up!
I managed to find a discount code that let me fit two fancy lights into the budget.The downside is that it's a preorder of something that's supposed to be available on 4/30.
I’m a programmer by trade. I read a lot of sci-fi and fantasy, run, garden, and play with fountain pens. he/him, Austin, TX
TBF I post about my cats a lot.
