  • 😭 Bummed to realize that some software I’ve been playing with this week inside my MIT-licensed project will have to be replaced because of the library’s infectious license.

    Meanwhile, chatbots and AI systems eat up all code found on the internet (public or otherwise) and obey no rules. 🤷‍♂️

  • 🤦‍♂️ Remember kids, the HTTP verb IS part of the signature’s source content. An hour I will not get back.

  • 🍞🔥 I need to buy a new toaster. Primary use cases include bagels, pop tarts, and white/rye toast for sandwiches.

    Most toasters are shit, so I’m looking for recommendations. Keep in mind, if I buy your toaster model and I don’t like it – I will hold it against you personally.

  • 🧹 It has been a housework day. Food shopping and downstairs cleaning. A bit embarrassing how much of a physical workout that cleaning is. 😓
