Dear App Developers, a friendly reminder that SysAdmins love it when you code in verbose logging because it makes troubleshooting easier. You App log saying "Connection Failed" could mean a number of things could have gone wrong when dealing with TLS LDAP Connections #sysadmin
What I like about #AmericanTruckSimulator #ATS is not the senseless driving for hours, it is this scenic virtual USA I'm driving through.
It is so cool to be able to turn on the computer and experience (an approximation of) how it feels to see landscape changing from CA, over OR to WA.
Additionally, there's so much random stuff to learn. For instance, I never thought WA has a significant amount of arid or desert(-like?) landscape. It was all woodland in my head.
Day seventeen: I want to write code. Reams of code, in different languages, on multiple projects. I have plenty ideas and want to dive deep into an ocean of code to get things done.

Oh well, I call it #missionOfDoom for a reason…

On a totally unrelated note, the bpython REPL for Python is quite nice.
Playing on PC and frustrated that the cute and colorful Animal Crossing is out of reach? Deiland is 90% off now on Steam, and can be described as "The Little Prince Simulator" or "Stardew Valley in Space".

I write bugs for a living, pretty cool eh?
