    Some years ago, and by "some" I mean nearly ten, I bought fancy brown sugar for baking cookies. For various reasons, I haven't baked cookies in almost as long. I am throwing it away because I am realistic about how likely that is to happen.

      I hate it when I have to deal with a consumer service support tech about font size and accessibility issues and they immediately assume I'm an inexperienced non-technical user. Not everybody who can't read your designer's 12 pt font is "Your Grandma."

        My github profile has literally no information about me besides my username. It's not that I did this on purpose because I knew about the recently reported research, but because I've been on the Internet a Long, Long time.

          I keep seeing the "Agency A hacks Agency B" stuff and what I get out of it is nobody using multi-tenant databases should be pretending that ACLs are going to save them. Multi-tenant is very, very complicated. How many times do we have to fail at this?

            Just discovered that using the ATM in Trieste just cost me an extra $35 because they took the funds from checking and not savings and it caused an overdraft for another item. Currently trying to call my bank, 20 minute hold.

              It's 4:30 and one of the neighbors (from a different building) is playing Thriller. I can hear it through a closed window. Ah, city life.

                @ggirton I try to not go to those kinds of places too often, or buffet generally. It's too tempting to turn it into a gigantic nutritional disaster. Once in a while is nice however. We don't have a functioning grill at home, the broiler just isn't the same

                  I'm awake anyway, so trying to call Social Security to figure out the thing for Mom. The website claims they are open 7-7, but doesn't say which timezone. It's after 7 EST, where nearly all government offices are, but for my CA phone number they are closed

                    Mom wants me to take a document (I have the original) to my local Social Security office for them to see it. Or something. I don't really know, she can't explain what they are expecting me to do, and it's an hour wait to talk to someone on the phone.

                        Errands in San Bruno, bbq place was mysteriously closed so instead we had grilled meat brought to us on swords. Fair trade, I think.

                          Today in Internet of Shit: the problem I'm having with my watch appears to be I don't have the latest update. I can only get it by installing, on my phone, a new iOS app from the manufacturer I didn't know about. That will break the apps I wrote for myself

                            Is duolingo now going to send me reminder emails at 10:00 CET forever? I didn't even tell them where I was when I signed up.

                              I thought I might go out and do a few things tonight, because I got some sleep on the way home. And by "sleep" I mean "drug-induced haze" and "go out" "crawl into bed"

                                Spouse got back yesterday, I got home today, the living room seriously looks like the swat team has been through. But nothing was on fire (not joking, that usually stays blocks away) and we are both home safely. Hopefully the city is returning to normal.

                                  So aphis took my 4€ of plastic packaged salami. The processed cheese food product was fine however. That is what I get for not eating all the cheap travel food I bought.

                                    Apparently at FRA you have to request in advance to use the elevator. So I can pre-board. But I have no idea how one accomplishes this on arrival, as "may I use the elevator?" Didn't accomplish anything.

                                        VCE feels more like a mall with airplanes than others much larger. The place isn't that big, yet it's full of designer boutiques.
