Welp, there was a mild panic attack. I went to log in to Mastodon, and my TOTP didn't work. This happens sometimes, and is annoying, so I went to get one of my recovery codes from my random text blob directory in my nextcloud. Only to find that entire directory missing. And no sign of any history for it in the UI. Turns out I had just accidentally moved it into the next directory down at some point, but it took about twenty minutes to figure that out. >_> <_<
Well, I just finally watched The Dark Crystal. The movie, that is, not the new series. There were a couple of points in there where I went, "Huh, that's some pretty spiff CGI. Wait, this was made in 1982. Holy crap, they actually built that." There was some incredibly impressive work in there. I also now feel like I have a bit more context on quite a few of the fantasy games I play.
starting a bondage session alright let's set up the rules
The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL
NOT", "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and
"OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in

The more I work in web development, the more I conclude that the majority of web teams are just not skilled/disciplined enough to build an SPA when a static site will do.
Static sites do not have to worry about:
- memory leaks
- the back button / history
- scroll state
- focus state
- page lifecycle (tab freezing/unfreezing)
SPA frameworks should come with a "you must be this tall to ride" sign.
That was a weird feeling. I walked into a Grocery Outlet I've never been to, and suddenly felt like it was twenty years ago, and I was halfway across the country. If that place wasn't selling usb cables and advertising their Facebook page, I would have sworn it was the same store I shopped at growing up. The layout was the same, the aesthetic was the same, the off-brands were the same... Nostalgia is a very strange thing.
Welp, I am officially unemployed a few days earlier than planned. I woke up this morning after a long night on call to find all my work accounts disabled, and my badge not working when I got to the office. Apparently, my manager had HR cut me off before my notice date, because he expected me to not work from home, while working overnight on call.
I sure do love climbing into bed, closing my eyes to sleep, then immediately having my phone blare an alert because for the past five months, the cron job to clean up cruft on one of our servers has been broken, and no one's taken the time to investigate *why* the disk was filling up, instead of just treating it as routine and manually freeing disk space. >..<
So, I was watching Love, Death & Robots, because I've heard so much good stuff about it. I got up to Zima Blue, and an hour later, the crying has subsided enough for me to type this. That is quite possibly the hardest I've ever been emotionally struck by a piece of media, and it was done in a ten minute animated short. I'd say it's too bad that they can't all be like that, but then I realize that I would probably never be able to finish the series, if they were.
tom francis' games are so frickin clever mechanics wise. kinda excited for tactical breach wizards
