The ten year old’s current EMF status: “I can barely contain my excitement!”

Might have to adjust some of my home automation timings until after EMF, I keep finding I’ve been doing stuff in the dark for an hour because my flat thinks it’s bedtime.

Now THIS is the ultimate in capitalist greenwashing.

@astrid @gsuberland just run strings over it, it’s the only way to be sure.

Pro tip: when ordering a takeaway on the phone don’t stand in your open window while loudly reading out your card details. I’m not going to use my neighbours card to order something for myself, but I totally could.

I am once again demanding an “it’s ok, nothing to worry about” message on the outside of HMRC envelopes which contain good/neutral news.

I had somehow entirely missed Eurovision is tomorrow until right now, presumably because I no longer use Twitter which would historically alert me to it months in advance with the constant stream of takes.

@benno I actually let out a little scream when I saw it.

Next time round I'm going to call up every supplier who spams EMF suggesting they can replace [thing] for us just to see how confused they are by the requirements. "Yes phone supplier, support for dial-up networking is crucial, as is fax to ActivityPub."

Landowner David Hampton planted larch pines in a Douglas fir forest in Oregon in the shape of a giant, 300 feet smiley face 🙂

The average festival does not result in thousands of lines of code in the preceding month. Electromagnetic Field was an outlier and should not have been counted.

@erbridge @alice annoyingly, not currently. Is this a “they need a job now” thing, because we’re working on drastically reducing wasted energy in commercial real estate, and will likely be hiring in the nearish future.

Please donate to my kickstarter raising money to send a list of adjectives that can be used instead of “insane” to YouTubers.

The problem with replying to emails is that shortly afterwards there are more emails to reply to.

holy shit. they actually called it "reply guy". seeing the Torment Nexus and copying it for profit is one thing, but seeing a reply guy and being like "I can monetize that" is a whole new type of evil.

Today in the week that keeps on giving, the washing machine is broken. I think it’s filling up with water but it then refuses to spin, I’d kind of been hoping for a quiet morning rather than one in which I crack open a washing machine.

Full stack engineer: when you're routinely baffled how anything works at all, regardless of where in the computer

One day I’ll learn that it takes me at least 20 minutes to get up off the sofa and go to bed when I decide it’s time to go to bed. Today was not that day, so I’m once again going to bed later than planned.
