Things are going shit
Getting it from all the sides
Everything falling down

my inside is outside
my right side's on the left side

youtube music so not really

we don't care about art

only time to react to

"How to work with Daniel"

At work we all have our own pages in Roam and in them we write a "How to work with [me]". There was no template or suggestions although we all stole ideas from each other as to what to put in this section. This is a part of mine. I'm...

Monday funday

Just kidding, it was a good day but this post is going to be about the veritable explosion of "networked" note-taking apps that have come out as of late.

Roam Research. Obsidian. Org-Roam. Athens. Dendron. Logseq.

I've tried half.

I tried Roam first, as you do. I still have a grandfathered-in free database...

I'm doing it for the (virtual) beers

I'm a sucker for badges and digital collections.

Yesterday was near-perfection. It started off watching Strade Bianchi live. The images were stunning, as was the racing. Then, I went on a 53 miles bike ride. Then, I played Minecraft with my son for a while. Then we had dinner. Then our...

Learning from the past as reply to Would you do it again?

> would you do it again?

Does it matter? I did it. There was an outcome. I learned a bunch. With the benefit of hindsight, and my tendency towards rose-colored nostalgia, and my tendency to suffer the present instead of enjoy it, things tend to seem better in the past. Daily frustrations...

Just Start Any Way You Want To

There is one thing infinitely more important than ability, skill, talent, intellect, domain knowledge, or prior experience. That thing is just starting.
There are a lot of resources out there about how one should start, according to the author of the resource. Lean, MVP, 200 words a day, 750 words a...

Give it away as reply to Capacity for Work

...he's spent a lot of time sorting through the thoughts that pass through his mind and working to decide which ideas make sense and which he can safely let go of. This has lead him down a more spiritual path of understanding outside of any organized religion. As such, he's...

Yesterday I learned of the news that Chick Corea had died. It's always sad when a brilliant talent is lost to this world, although in this case it was buffeted by the fact that he continued to make amazing music right up until the end. He released an album each...

Jilted Joe

She broke up with him over text. The bitch. They say love and hate are just two sides of the same coin, and she'd picked the coin up off the table and slammed it back down on the opposite side. How could she just do that like that?

She'd done this...

Winter in Texas / Easy Rule #9

New dark theme, eh? I like it.

We don't get much snow here in North Texas. Once every few years, maybe. And maybe an inch. Actually, usually less than an inch.

More often the temperature hovers between the thirties and sixty. Hoodie weather.

Yesterday I rode my bike with the in-the-forties kit. Thick...

You might not be a senior engineer if...

The tremendous demand for software engineering talent has resulted in a lot of "senior engineers" who are only two years into their careers. This is doing a disservice to those engineers and new engineers just entering the field.

You might want to reconsider your "senior" title if...

...other engineers can't comprehend your...
