This piece fucking killed me at times. It was painful to read and so much of it I have felt hard a lot of the time.
Just binged through all the Part Time Dragons comics on Twitter and I absolutely loved them. Really wholesome, positive comics about working hard and supporting your friends.
(No RSS feed that I could find, unfortunately.)

Kanéko finds herself in a nightmare created by Damagar. The behemoth has an offer, one that she might not be willing to concede.
My Schedule for ICON 43
Over the last few weeks, I've been tweaking my publishing process to automate more of the release and generation process.
I also started a new notebook this weekend. This month is Batgirl.
I didn't make fifty thousand words, only thirty thousand. But it got me a chance to catch up in this commission. I had a good weekend.
Well, my writing retreat weekend is finally over. Four days (including 15 hours of driving) netted me 39,634 words written which puts me further on track with this commission.
I can live with that.
Could it be possible to create a blockchain token where the proof of work is actually work on folding@home and other important and useful distributed computing projects like that, instead of just burning energy doing nothing?

Rot in hell, Bayer, for making different types of test strips for each of your devices. Apparently the pharm gave me the wrong type, so now I have a $100 of the wrong types. :(
These are ones I had for about a year, so I can't return them either.
Plus, the new drug plan requires me to switch brands so... I have to get a fresh box months earlier than I budgeted.

"The new cult of simple software is making us less productive. Simple tools get in the way of our thinking by making assumptions about what we want to do, and by putting the ease of getting going ahead of optimizing productivity. By contrast, using a tool like Vim makes me more expressive."
"The problem with easy-to-use design, then, arises when there’s a discrepancy between what the developers expect us to want, and what we actually want. Like, yo, I put my finger on that text to share it; why are you copying? Or when Microsoft Word seems to arbitrarily indent things and there is no way to stop it from doing so. This is much more likely to happen when software makes decisions for us or is, in programmer-speak, “too opinionated.”"
