Since I'm following @BestGirlGrace on here, this particular line of Vivy: Fluorite Eye's Song doesn't feel particularly surprising. (Flagged as sensitive because it's a potential spoiler for said anime. Also, people should watch it, it's a really good show.)

Oh, FFS. "Alright, we'll power the datacenter back up at 19:00 on Saturday, we'll need you to be available then to bring it up." 11:00 on Saturday: "Hey, we just powered up the datacenter, where are you?"

Whee, I just found the cause of a problem I've been having with my work laptop for, like, two weeks. Apparently, between a Windows update and a firmware update, something was locking the CPU speed to 800 Mhz. On a 3Ghz processor. :/

I just found out that there's an anime about visual kei vampires coming out later this year. This is not something I realized I needed, until now. I hope it's not terrible.

Ugh. A pushy asshat engineer whined at my manager to add him to my weekly meeting with one of our third party vendors, and just shat all over the meeting, demanding he be in the loop on shit he knows nothing about. It ended with him demanding that I give the vendors access to our systems using my user account. I'm ignoring it for now, but if I hear anything of that sort from my management chain, I'm immediately referring it all to the security team.

Whee, I just ordered a standing desk, 'cause I've been thinking about getting one for a while. Apparently, the website for one of the biggest names in standing desks can't handle non-alphanumeric passwords, or passwords longer than 20 characters, though. In 2021, I do not get how people consider that sort of thing acceptable.

jfc, I went to the grocery store, and there's one checker and the self checkout is closed, at prime time on Saturday. The checkout line is stretched all the way across the store.

I have finally determined what's going to happen at the end of the current WoW expansion: we're going to beat the Jailer inside Torghast, take a wrong turn on the way out, and end up coming out of the Palace of the Dead, to set up new Horde and Alliance settlements in the South Shroud. *nod*

Whee, looks like I'm going to be getting four more root canals, this year.

Welp, I just started my largest print yet. Estimated print time, 45 hours. I also did some math and realized that I'm effectively spending ~$5 for just the supports on this mask. This has me thinking again about buying a filament extruder, so I can recycle that sort of stuff. Though, I'll probably wait on that until at least my PLA scrap box is full.

Bleh, I was just getting used to being able to breathe, and not having an orange tint to all light entering my window. I guess that's done for now. Thanks, wildfires. :/

Hmm, I am suddenly in the mood to get some fabric paints, and add a splash of color to my favorite skirt, in the form of queer villain pride bolts running up one side. I wonder if I'd still be in the mood by the time they arrived, if I ordered some. >#> <#<

Today feels like one of those days where someone, somewhere, got a message on their screen reading, "Yote has claimed a codekobold's workshop!" Now to start yelling demands for shells.

Man, that was a good reminder of how little exercise I've been getting lately. I turned on beatsaber for the first time in a while, and was only able to get through four songs before I was too exhausted to keep playing. >_<

Grump. My favorite skirt is all covered in little lint ball things and discolored from it, and nothing I've tried, including a dedicated lint shaver, has worked to get rid of them. ;_;

Okay, I just found out about the IBM TrackWrite, aka the fold-out butterfly keyboard on the Thinkpad 701. Part of me really, really wants to try to find a way to replicate it with a full-size keyboard on a modern laptop. Or just get a Thinkpad 701, and put modern guts in it.
