    It’s weird. I’ve only been married two weeks and already it feels weird to take off my wedding ring.

      @retrophisch @patrickrhone My dad likes to say "There's no pockets in coffins". He'd know, seeing as he used to make them.

        I'm in a weird situation where I don't really have a job any more. I mean, I'm employed but the work that I do is moving to different areas of the business. Until I'm able to be skilled up for what my job now entails, I'm in a weird kind of limbo. It sucks

          @knowsbest Haha, I won’t die. At least not for another 50 or 60 years.

            @patrickrhone thanks. I’m personally not too concerned but I think my better half is pretty worried.

              Having surgery tomorrow. Getting an unknown "growth" cut out of my leg. I should probably be more nervous than I am.

                So this is what my better half did yesterday: http://instagram.com/p/fr217aTHFF/. I was more nervous watching her matches than I've ever been when I've competed.

                  @patrickrhone man, I hope my initial post didn’t sound accusatory. That was definitely not my intention. Sometimes I’m not sure where you’re going with your thought patterns, and I thought I’d seek to clarify my understanding.

                    @patrickrhone After considering it more, I realise that you’ve also increased my understanding a bit. I’ve ever considered that becoming reliant on something is part of the price we pay when we buy (into) something.
                    deanacus
                      @patrickrhone At the risk of sounding reductive and dismissive, isn't this really an elaborate way of saying "The things you own end up owning you"? You buy a responsibility (maintenance), as well as becoming reliant on something to serve a purpose.

                        Tried my hand at using the iPad mini as a proper writing tool last night. It was fantastic. Typed just as quickly as a phyisical keyboard, and only a few more typos than I would normally make.

                          Made the decision to give up alcohol entirely. I’ve been an occasional drinker at most for the last 6 years, so it’s not a massive leap. The depressive effects seem to last for days, which I just can’t be bothered dealing with anymore.

                            This album is probably the single most important piece of music in my life. Seems like it's becoming ever more relevant, too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LrodzFIYcqE&list=PLSnE5TnFSvDI_sdAYD6ZccZbzAIJi1X7G

                              @knowsbest honestly, no idea. I don’t know a thing about python.

                                @patrickrhone interesting. It looks like it has some nice features. I was a big fan of kippt until a recent change made it less about the bookmarks themselves and more about itself.

                                  @patrickrhone so your bookmarking tool is built on MediaWiki?

                                    @knowsbest Well… is it compatible with the version of Python that Mavericks has installed?

                                      To clarify the last post: I'm interested in understanding how to access each object to manipulate them, rather than just having it done for me - this is for a JS short course that I've done that kind of jumped too far ahead at once.

                                        I ask for help way too often, BUT, given this code, how would you delete an event (just for the current page view)? jsfiddle.net/deanacus/DbQT9/

                                          @patrickrhone Timely post for me. I fail the last two steps, the last in particular, alarmingly often. I end up repeating the process for the same/similar wrongdoings multiple times until it finally sticks.
