I should offer a paid service to tweet shit that people can't say publicly because I really am capable of striking fear into a lot of cowardly men out there.

(which isn't to say I don't spend a lot of time Talking Shit but I do that off the clock, and extensively. good morning!)

It's funny because I really don't spend much mental energy thinking about the companies that make similar closed-source software to the ones I work on (or straight-up resell it as a service) because it's an entirely different game, but it's clear that companies spend a lot of full-time on-the-clock energy thinking about attack strategies

Big LOL at a "competing" software company making a copy of my company's open training materials, but accidentally making the copy in the same folder so everyone can see that they did it 😂😂😂

It's so hard to focus at work on the same day as when I have to take a flight, 50% because I can't stop picking up my cat and squishing him

you can lead a horse to water but they will still open up a vastly expensive web app and ask "why can't you just do it like this?"

Do you ever draft an email that says something like "and here is a link to a document" but it links to a doc that is still empty, just to motivate yourself to fill it out really really fast?

me, gesturing wildly at mailing lists and group email and RSS and just email in general, because people seem to have forgotten that these things exist and are well-supported and decentralized and secure with the right tools

Damn, people out here setting out of office emails on their personal email accounts

finally learning to gain strength from not responding. too many people not worth my time.
