The Philadelphia Flyers Have Commissioned a Nude Portrait of Gritty, Its Beloved Mascot.

Not Only Is It Elegant, It Is a Masterpiece

The bright orange mascot slipped out of a white robe to pose naked for the ravishing portrait.

There is something supremely satisfying about having zero warnings when you go to build your code.

I never explored the internet back when webrings were popular, but this is kinda cool

The world needs a Drunk Man Anti-Method type tool that changes your code at random.

Even blackhats use AWS. The vendor lock-in is real.

If AT&T is going to send all my data to the NSA the least they could do is implement some spam filtering on text messages.

Multi line edit features in vscode and regex replace are clutch features to have when you need to edit a few hundred lines of code. Just a few different patterns covered almost everything. Unfortunately I can't say the same for the 100 or so tests I need to go back and fix now 😂

I want to update my resume, but I can't because I can't get pdflatex to compile it.

I can't get pdflatex to compile it because it's missing a library, that was recently split into several other libraries.

I can't get texlive manager to install the missing package (pdftexcmds) because the checksum doesn't match.

The checksum doesn't match because the signing key for the repository expired this year.

Period dramas seem to be all the rage right now, but they seem to all focus on affluent people or aristocracy. How about one that focuses on struggling artists and musicians in the 17 and 1800's? We can call it, "Going for Baroque".

So far I've written ~3k lines of code without using any dependencies or external libraries. I'm not sure that I've ever done that before.

Cuckoo's Egg by Clifford Stoll is a pretty fantastic book. I had heard good things about it, but I'd tried to steer clear of anything that might spoil it for me. I'm only about half way through but I can tell It's worth a read.

Computervredebreuk is definitely one of the better words for computer hacker.

My Bluetooth keyboard no longer connects to the macbook unless I turn off my Bluetooth headphones and then turn them back on again... weird.

Making hand motions in circles to the left or right, is an integral part of implementing bit shift operations.
