today I think is a Toad the Wet Sprocket kind of day. 🐸⚙️

part of being a manager is not laughing a bitter, hollow laugh when developers complain about having too many meetings.

the spelling of the word "succinct" directly flies in the face of the definition of the word. Nobody needs 3/8ths of the word to be the letter c. That's just extravagant.

Extravagant, by the way, exactly pairs its spelling and meaning. Likewise "Lavish"

Anyway these are the things I think about when I'm supposed to be making wireframes for work.

My kids like Tron: Legacy better than original Tron. We recently re watched both and I might be coming around to their point of view.

things I've done while waiting for blasted iCloud Drive to set itself up on my new computer:
- Completely redesigned my desk
- Decided to stop using iCloud
- Discovered iCloud is inexplicably still an Intel process on M1 computers
- Shopped for Linux computers
- Helped my wife set up her new phone
- Wrote this
- looked into ways to copy all my files that I actually use OUT of iCloud and into a sync service that actually works
- researched usb hubs

oh, huh, this Macbook Pro applies "true tone" to external monitors, something my previous mac hilariously failed to do.


Cloud services that have failed me enough to be replaced:
- DropBox
- iCloud

The replacements:
- Resilio Sync
- Synology Drive

My new “Dresden Files” RPG fudge dice. Shortly after these arrived I found my other, long lost set of fudge dice. Oops, I guess I have MORE dice now.

Just found a Field Notes notebook in a pair of pants I don’t wear frequently. Which is kinda fun.

I’m sure this has NOTHING to do with my “I hate sleep” thing the other day, but I’m quite tired. Again, Positive there is no correlation.

one of the :dnd: parties for which I DM is now high enough level that almost anything above a critical fail will hit. I realize the approaches to "fixing" this are:
1. start breaking their weapons
2. Give the enemies armor that sets their AC > 20

But it also kind of explains why FATE uses "fudge" dice that only have "+", "-" and " " (blank). After a while those are the only results that matter.

TIL not to eat breath mints with actual menthol if you are wearing a mask. My eyes don’t like menthol at all.

I bought the new Toad The Wet Sprocket album on release day and haven’t listened to it yet. This has literally never happened before. I realize I was a teenager at the time but I listened to Dulcenia four times in the first 24 hours after it was released.

Me and my four boxes of unused field notes notebooks are offended.

I love these huge dice. When you roll a four on that six sided die, you KNOW you rolled a four. There are no questions left. I bought these so that my kids would stop crowding around the dice bowl to see smaller dice, but I they are rapidly becoming my favorites. :dnd: 🎲

Being sick sucks, but feeling better after being sick is pretty great!
