entire industries today are just "happy meal toys but for adults"

I like the self-checkout at supermarkets, but it would save a lot of money if they did away with those and just gave the food away for free.

been having some good quality time with my cat and it's nice

if cops are going to bike illegally all the time here they really ought to have little sirens and lights for their heads

three CHP (California "highway patrol") officers pass me quickly on a sidewalk on bikes. First one shouts "on your left" in a barely helpful way. I yell to the last one "no bikes on the sidewalk right?" and he responds "yeah"

been treating bird site as read-only lately and that's been good for the mental health. I can get a little bit of doom when I want but there's no conflict.

just got reminded of my favourite :cisco:​ Cisco Field Notice where using certain snagless ethernet cables would reset certain switches because the protective boot would press down on a button that will do exactly that

there are only 4 genders, but someone labelled them 1, 2, 3 and 5 so people would waste time looking for number 4

I appreciate how this game makes me think more about when to build and dismantle temporary infrastructure in the early game. It's frustrating to approach it if you are trying to incrementally build the one perfect factory, but it's satisfying to play it as a process of maintaining and changing infrastructure as your needs change.

I put Satisfactory down for about a year and a half but they released a new experimental update recently and I took that as an excuse to start a new file, and it's been really nice. They've really rebalanced the early game a lot, and exploration is more fun. Also it's much more enjoyable when approached like a 3d first person board game than some kind of actual simulation.

cool mental health boost from remembering to take my meds

computering, mild hardware body horror 

I'm frustrated by how fragile usb-c ports are compared to old-school type A, but I do appreciate that the socket is on a separate board relatively far from things that can be damaged by the misdirected watts

computering, mild hardware body horror 

the original culprit was either liquid damage or damage from an already overheated peripheral. I've tried to clean the socket and it's worked again for a while, but just recently the problem came back and instead of just not turning on, it does the heating. so, taped over the port and ordered a replacement board.
