line endings are the worst. programs should be written all on one line so we don't have to deal with line ending bullcrap.

whether to bike five minutes in the rain and get all wet or to walk twenty minutes in the rain with an umbrella and get all wet anyway. hm.

it can't be my car alarm, can it? does my care even have an alarm? I've had this car for five years. if it had an alarm I'd probably know it by now. must be the neighbor's.

this car alarm has been going for an hour. and the worst bit is that every few minutes it stops for a bit and then starts again, like someone is deliberately turning it on.

confession: until recently, the only Led Zeppelin I'd really listened to was IV and whatever hits they played in the concerts on the DVD set (e.g. Dazed and Confused, Moby Dick).

working on remedying that. only on their second album but holy bacon I've been missing out.

tfw you're skimming text and you screech to a halt at the word "was" and just when you start to backtrack to figure out what a wa is in this context you understand.

And of course I just keep thinking of better replies for when he asked about what I'd do when I run out of books. In hindsight this stuff is always so easy.

"I'm sure by then I'll be smart enough to think of something else to do."

"I don't know, what will I do when your shitty service dies on a Saturday night?"

"Maybe run to Family Video?"

Remember when I called Charter to move service? I don't think I related the bit where he tried to sell me TV. It went like this:

Me: I don't have a TV.
C: That's okay, it includes internet streaming too.
Me: I already said I don't do streaming.
C: ...Well how DO you get your entertainment?
Me: Books and games, mostly.
C: What are you going to do when you run out of books?
Me: I honestly can't imagine that happening. Can we move on?

Anyway last night the internet went out for at least two hours. Interestingly enough, my book (and pirated anime) still worked. Go figure.

breaking news:

it turns out that peanuts are actually both peas and nuts, after all.

i have complicated thoughts this morning about "the linux desktop" and computing in general. i feel like aiming to bring linux into parity with windows in games functionality is kind of missing either the point of computing, or somehow missing out on an opportunity to reclaim part of the computing experience that's been lost in recent decades

i'm still not 100% sure how to put this feeling into words, i'm gonna try but this ain't gonna be some pithy hot take thread lol. sec

woah they got the firmware thing working and after that I was even able to help get it set back up on the network. all I did was look up a hostname on a list but I feel like support master now.

tfw you get called on the work phone and it's some firmware update issue with a device that only one other person in your department knows and all you can say is "I dunno man probably replace the whole device?"

oh boy today I got two voicemails with the same robovoice telling me my SSN was used for fraud on the south texas border and to press 1 to speak to an officer.

they must have caught on to the fraud I've been committing with my own SSN on the south texas border.

speaking of rabbits, I almost beamed one on my bike this evening when it darted out from the bushes. pretty scary. it looked like a young one and maybe still needs to learn how the proper hide/flee responses.

is rare steak actually any less common than other levels of cookedness?

shit, the old landlords just texted saying they rented the apartment for next month and asked if I'm done, but I didn't schedule the stupid carpet cleaning yet. I probably have a week to get that done and I should probably schedule it before answering. this is what happens when you put things off.

dear cities of the world:

if you are on a river, please don't close two adjacent bridges at the same time.

if you are not on a river, disregard. why do you even have bridges?
