I missed out on last time, so:

I'm a person. I think people and communities and subcultures are pretty interesting. Sometimes I try to archive these things, sometimes I just idly find them fascinating.

I appreciate things that are {open source, secure, well-designed}, most of the people I've met here, and @srn ​in particular.

I like to think I'm trustworthy and available. Feel free to reach out even if I don't know you.

(A few thousand more words available via my profile.)

Hmm. Do I want the comically large teddy bear from Costco? It's on sale again.

Turns out I'm wrong, and can make a few linear feet of space available if necessary. More books, then.

Realizing I may need more bookshelf space. Nice.

Morning Edition host Steve Inskeep, while signing off: "we have made it to Friday, everyone." That's about the shape of it. Have a good end to your week.

@QuietMisdreavus I hear it's getting colder over by you. Did you end up with any snow?

My new hobby: getting things addressed to "aschmitz ​" if forced to enter a first and last name and in the process testing Unicode handling. (That's "aschmitz" as a first name, and "\u200b", or a zero-width space, as a last name. It doesn't trip most "is this string blank?" checks.)

FedEx's internal thing appears to work okay (or doesn't have an unknown-character fallback?), but their full-size label maker drops to a "?". Cards Against Humanity (and I assume Blackbox) goes with "‰ÛÜ" (I think).

"There's only one way you can feel about Snape dying."

'morning, folks! Have a good Thursday. Do something nice for yourself today.

Hey. Don't forget to get a decent amount of sleep.

(I forgot; my day was far less effective than I'd've liked. Trying to correct that a bit now. 😴)

Felt like playing with topography.

'morning everyone. Have a good Monday! Complimentary blobpat: :blobpats: (Yes, complimentary: it likes your hair.)

Newly finished laptop jase!

On one hand, I want to work on this SSD-optimized key/value store. On the other hand, I've been meaning to sit down and read the Unicode books. Hrm.

Early bedtime.

Have a good evening, everyone. Don't forget to get some sleep of your own! (Remember: sleep is non-transferable, you have to get it for yourself.) 😴
