Running `git gc` on one of my repositories has resulted in Git using 5.2GB of RAM (13GB virtual) and 1600 minutes of CPU time. Insane.

I feel like this is something I should do occasionally but it has such a crazy high cost.

This hotel puts a small stuffed dog in each room. You can take it and part of the fee for the toy goes to help a local animal shelter.

At the airport heading to San Francisco. The guy I shared the parking shuttle with was heading to Indianapolis for the NRA convention.

To say we're headed in different directions is an understatement.

Costco has had two day shipping to compete with Amazon for a while, but I haven't gotten a chance to use it.

Ordered two packs of toilet paper to achieve peak Costco.

Can't wait to effectively block my front door by toilet papering my own house.

Creating "a future of tech-driven authoritarianism, potentially leading to a loss of privacy on an industrial scale."

While we want to point to China the US and the UK are no saints here. I think the only thing we can hope is that China will step over a line that convinces politicians here to enact laws restricting the use of technology in such far reaching efforts.

Dell has these 32" 8K monitors. It would be awesome to get three of them set up with some high end video cards to run them.

Because, think how many terminal windows I could have open!

And the letters in fonts would be so smooth.

Watching the Dallas Stars on Fox Sports Southwest and they're running ads for women's USA soccer.

The ads are really kick ass.

I don't like soccer that much and I'm excited about it. Bring it on world!

Upgraded to Android 9, and they moved the time to the left side of the screen! Annoying! But, it seems no one cares.

On Unity, we moved the close button and the Internet was on fire for a month and apparently no one cares about something they actually use being moved on a much larger platform.

Internet, Y U disappoint?

Getting SEO spammers asking to be featured in my posts on the Fediverse. Guess that's a win for the Fediverse?

Assuming that the SEO value of the Fediverse in general would rank lower just because of the distributed nature of it. But, it would be interesting to try and measure. The fact that a single post can show up on multiple domains might trick the traditional search engine algorithms into valuing the links more.

Had a DNA test done, turns out I'm 1/100th Elizabeth Warren.

The setting I want on most sites that send email is: "Only on Human Action".

If someone talks with me using your chat. Or if they "friend" me. Or whatever your platform does. An email is probably reasonable.

What I don't want is your automated attempts at "increasing engagement" or encouraging "daily active use." Those are all spam to me and make me want to disable all email for your domain.

When I get too much mail you want me to blame the humans, not your platform.

Happy to hear VCs are excited about Open Source, less excited that they think Open Core is the most successful way to do it.

I find it even more interesting to hear they don't see that term as negative.

Neat that Google has the Dallas Zoo on street view. Luckily they still have the signs with maps in there so that I could find my way around.

Never thought I'd need a "You are here" designation while sitting at my desk.
