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.

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).

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: (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.

Google Maps (on Android) moved the way you select layers on the map. But they left a menu item where the old layer selections were! And it tells you they moved! And selecting it makes the button they moved to bounce and shows a little message telling you they moved!
Anyway, good job on that one. If you change something, leave some way for people who used the old way to find the new way. You can remove it eventually, but people will be less lost.
