Days sheltering in place: 106. Days without ants in the kitchen: they’re back. Keyboarding: I touched the keys. Three day weekends are something to look forward to, but that’s not the case for everyone in the tech industry. The weekend is a three day weekend - 4th of July...

Days sheltering in place: 103. Days without ants in the kitchen: 1. Keyboarding: with gusto. My wife mentioned that my rendition of the Imperial March wasn't ominous enough, not deep enough, not angry enough it needed something else. Imagining it my head I knew exactly what it needed, it...


Is Mad Max Driving?

Having driven on the Autobahn @Rinrae, US driving is completely different - in most cases - 5+ lanes of people going at different speeds. It’s easy to find a lane going your speed and cruise. The Tesla cruise control controls are much better than other cars I have driven. It...

Days sheltering in place: 98. Days without ants in the kitchen: 1. Keyboarding: Silently, I didn’t turn my keyboard on. The air in the USA travels in mysterious ways.

Days sheltering in place: 96. Days without ants in the kitchen: 1. Keyboarding: Not today. I try not to work at the weekends, I don't always succeed, in fact I very rarely do. Comes with the territory when you run a web service 365 days a year with the...
