Graaaah! How can someone get to be a senior software developer and not know how to write a good bug report? A report titled "<Package X> is broken" and a body that's a laundry list of varying use cases showing wildly different problems on a number of different OSes is what is expect from HR, not someone with 6 years of university education and 15 years work experience.

Beer o'clock is still five hours away....

Creeping crud day #5: my nose is no longer full of glop. Now it's full of little razor-sharp bits of green shrapnel. WTF? Too much silicon in the diet, resulting in the body spontaneously exuding fragments of shattered 7-Up bottles?

Creeping crud day #4: situation grim. running low on Kleenex and instant noodles. Still 3 days of Theraflu left. Mind starting to wander. Questions like "would the shopvac be able extract all this snot from my sinuses? Maybe a larger model will be needed? How much duct tape would be needed to seal the hose my nose?" not only start making sense, but are being considered as a viable solution to current predicament.

Before buying a home, people need a homeowner's license. To get this, you must show you have a basic set of tools (inspected every two years to make sure you haven't done something like lose the screwdrivers by using them as garden stakes), and demonstrate basic homeowner's skills, like resetting a breaker, fixing a toilet flapper valve, cleaning the dryer outlet, and so on. Retested every five years, and must show an added new skill at each retest. Well, that's how it should be.

Dr. Albert Erives, a biologist at the University of Iowa, has identified a virus family whose set of genes is similar to that of eukaryotes, an organism classification that includes all plants and animals. The finding is important because it helps clarify how eukaryotes evolved after branching from prokaryotes (single-celled organisms) about two billion years ago... sci-news.com/biology/giant-vir

Fucking Microsoft Outlook Clutter feature is the worst idea since Clippy. Maybe even worse than that.

Seems like there hasn't been a pineapple sighting around here in a while.

Some folks appear to be having trouble with this whole "vegetarian” concept thing.

Grah. I forgot what's going on today. My favorite burger+beer joint is packed with raucous sportscritters. Off to a friend's house instead (pretty good backup plan).

Rocks are heavy when you're moving them by hand. Two tons of rocks still weighs two tons, even when you place it one or two rocks at a time. And there's still 21 freaking tons to go. Gotta find a better way.

Time for pain relievers, then burgers and a beer.
