    Rtd train is nice, although not a whole lot of luggage space in this car. Unless I want to heft 28kg up onto the shelf. You would think a train specifically built to go to the airport would consider the number of people getting on there who might have bags

      SFO tsa wasn't awful, but certainly not empty. Even if I can buy my way out of the line, very unhappy with the idea that the "solution" to long lines is to pay for yet another subscription service. Most people are still only occasional travelers.

        Just checked why my iOS download wasn't done yet, and it was because iTunes was busy downloading months of already watched tv shows instead. Fail.

          Erdogan's new pet PM wants to give power to the president. Shock. Never would have guessed. Convenient that other guy quit, huh?

              For all that Maker Faire reminds everyone we aren't allowed to bring food, you would think there would be something available before opening besides coffee and cold pastries. Food booths don't help if they don't open until you have to be back at yours.

                Maker Faire: PanaVise is doing a giveaway in their booth where you fill in your favorite base and accessories and you might win them. Spouse and I independently signed up. With the identical combination of parts.

                  The Internets are discussing a portable computing device called "Librem." When you ask Google about "librem tablet" the maybe-you-typed-it-rong suggestion has a very, very different idea about what you could be looking for.

                    Caltrain customer service closes at 19:00, I guess nobody rides the trains after then.

                      Once I get a job, the first thing I'm doing is turning the ringer back off on my phone. It's still only like 90% telemarketers and 10% people I need to talk to, but it's damn annoying to not be able to tell the difference.

                          Cooking all the things in preparation for "It's midnight, I haven't eaten for ten hours, don't get between me and the refrigerator" open-mouth-insert-food exhaustion haze. I've done Maker Faire enough times to know how this works.

                            In other insurance news, the sleep study I was told I must have before any doctor would do anything, would not have been ordered by my actual sleep specialist. The one the insurance company claimed for months they didn't have and wouldn't cover. $250.

                              The month of insurance we didn't have last year because of Covered CA's massive screwup rescinding our eligibility? We got to pay for it anyway. They reported to the IRS that we received a tax credit, which caused us to have to "repay" an "overpayment."

                                Apple quietly changed the passcode rules for Touch ID, so now you also need to enter it if it's been more than 8 hours. I wish there were an option to always require, so I could use Touch ID plus a less complex password. http://tinyurl.com/hyk9hpa

                                  You can't even joke about this. Houston will keep on paving former rice fields and then (literally) need to be bailed out when floods keep coming. To quote some too-familiar Texas comments, why must I pay for their bad decisions? http://tinyurl.com/zeh7jxo

                                      Paging through my copy of a friend's spinning book from a few years back, still amused at one of the fibers featured. She has it because I bought literal garbage bags of it from a salvage shop.

                                        Pants hemmed (pics after the new blouse goes through the laundry.) I'm already thinking what to change and how to not stitch all those darts again. These aren't skinny jeans, I can probably re-design the pockets and facing so they fit without them.

                                          Sometimes I talk to chatty people on Bart, push my comfort level socializing with strangers. Strictly anonymous. Today kid who dances for tourist tips. Way outside my narrow social circle, which I've noted before. Asked for contact info. Maybe should have.
