The Groceries That No One Wants to Panic-Buy

Watched The Biggest Little Farm yesterday and really enjoyed it. It’s a documentary about founding a farm with traditional biodiversity.

Linux AppImage format is annoying. No I don’t want to run a chmod command and no I don’t want to just randomly have executables everywhere. I want a properly installed executable that works without hackery or deciding where to place a file.

The Bike Buddy Program by @cambbikesafety is such a cool idea. www.cambridgebikesafety.org/bike-budd…

Saw the newest release of Elementary OS and it makes me want to try it. Looks slick. Not enough resources and time goes into open source software that looks good and is cohesive. elementary.io

Great engineering perspective from working at Dropbox. Really liked this line: > this is where startups can compete for talent. There are many people who didn’t graduate college but are focused workers or have a knack for understanding users.

Two Years at Dropbox

I’ve completed “1202 Program Alarm” - Day 2 - Advent of Code 2019 adventofcode.com/2019/day/… #AdventOfCode

Spent grain bread experiment. Hope it tastes good 😋

Is 2019 the year I finish Advent of Code? Probably not, but I’ll see how far we get. Breaking out Elixir for this year.

Will Apple bring back a solid keyboard to the 13in MacBook Pro? 16 inches is too big for what I want in a laptop.

‪Thinkpad P1 power cycling daily is killing my productivity this week. Really hating computers.‬

I voted for Cambridge local elections!

Easy day hike today! Felt good to get out for a hike. Haven’t been doing it enough lately.

Pro tip when applying for jobs. Export to PDF. It makes it much easier for people to read on the other side and you won’t send all your Microsoft Word edit history in with your submission, this is pretty key.

Farmers market this morning ended with “harvest soup” tonight. Apples, celeriac, sweet potatoes, squash, onions and a little bacon.

Fought my thinkpad too much the last few days. Can’t get Ubuntu to run stable on it right now. Freezes completely. A computer workers Halloween nightmare.

Great tribute to Guido. Python was one of my first serious languages and I always enjoyed it. Back to writing it after a break and it’s growing on me again. blog.dropbox.com/topics/co…

Started Peaky Blinders tonight and digging it. Intrigue and drama.

Good friends challenge you to be better. Find good friends and keep in touch. Life is better with solid relationships and it is a better long term plan than to just work hard.

Fun night eating too much with friends and playing board games! Played splendor and Coup a bunch. I want to find time to play Manhattan Project again soon.

Not every day needs to have a big event or involve burning through a to do list. Sometimes it’s okay to make a just a little progress and it’s okay to sometimes get nothing done too. We are in it for the long road it’s not all a sprint.
