Docs getting a workout:
Human, Dustcake, Engineer
Doing my best to make the world a little better every day.
Really should do something with my makamaka.me domain which I shelved when I realized that I was using AGPL software...
I ended up just contributing to the Mastodon Patreon and joined https://
[also looks like go/makamaka still works!!!]
Post yur playlist plz.. There are only so many Neil Cicierega tracks out there... Save me before I start hitting the Nightcore...
True story: After too much time in the Fortress of Solitude Superman morphed into Bizarro.
Walking through an empty office took me back to 2001 as I survived seven layoffs and three office moves at Critical Path. Serious triggering moment.
Recommend that folks have a Plan B, and start building support networks now.
The whole global economy is fragile and over-leveraged, and we've already used up most financial engineering tools available in 2008.
US folks should consider updating wageworks for commuter benefits.
I found out the hard way that Clipper has a max accumulation of BART passes...
Relax with some therapy farm animals.. Almost makes twitter worth it.. almost.
The end times approach. Gopher protocol over HTTP and support for TLS.
But seriously I now have the weirdest Masto timeline with Adam Curry NoAgenda Show folks and retro-hacker Gopher Protocol people.
We've all been there, on the tenth page of search results, not finding what you're looking for. This is a whole 'nother level. Loved it.

Say thanks the next time you use your Kanban, or reduce toil instead of just automating tasks....
Indeed! I've been following the growing #gopher community. Definitely an example of a Retro Upgrade for our current computing environment.
Looks like Adam Curry spoke about Internet Gopher on the Rogan Podcast, so I had to dig this out of the email archives from September '93

For some reason I always thought of Six Apart as Franz Ferdinand.
And for the ultimate crossover here's a Franz cover of Serge Gainsbourg
If you want you can refer to case #457576616 It's closed, but should have details.
Intuit/TurboTax has a market cap of $74B, and just spent $7B to buy Credit Karma. They can afford to hire people to manually fix these returns...
Turbotax, you had one job.. Because of this bug surviving spouses have had to mail instead of e-file for years. I escalated with support. They said it would be fixed, but could not notify me when. Just keep trying...
By popular demand I started (manually) cross-posting to Instagram.
One of these days they'll have a proper API for individuals. Their current one is just super hostile...
So yeah, don't forget about your Drive Birthday quota expiration..
The current deal is 2TB for 9/year, which isn't bad. You also get 100 'play points', which nets you in raw play credit or more if you use in-app.
And plus it saves me from looking at S3 compatible archive options now... (I use restic + rclone to backup to drive..)
Decided to break out the Orange Jumpsuit for Cyberdelia at the DNA Lounge. Crowd participation made the film Hackers 10x better and yes, rollerblades were in use. #hacktheplanet
The "Internet Gopher and Adversarial Interoperability" EFF Deeplink Blog post is now on Cory Doctorow's most excellent Podcast.
In 1991 a GB was ~$7k
Still amazed that we could pay for all that expensive hardware and had such lousy salaries.. At $30k/year 1 disk would be .3 SWE/y
RT @Albatross: An article in @EFF by @doctorow about #AdversarialInteroperability and #InternetGopher. Links include my Gopher paper. Eleme…
I only contributed factual info....
Also realized that Gopher was announced to comp.unix.misc the day before Smells Like Teen Spirit came out.
RT @doctorow: The latest in my series of case histories of #AdversarialInteroperability and the role it played in keeping tech competitive…
Sad to hear about the death of Larry Tesler.
“Every application has an inherent amount of irreducible complexity. The only question is: Who will have to deal with it—the user, the application developer, or the platform developer?”
I think it would be interesting to have 'deprecated by' and 'replaced with' added to
Then create a visual tool showing the evolution of tools over time.....
Had to disable SameSite cookies to book a flight on United.
They were using DNS names to shard their booking frontends. The 'rev' cookie was getting blocked, and then when the frontend made a request for weirdhost/rev it hit a 500 error...
Seems like there's got to be a better way of rolling this out, especially if United has a software procurement/deployment process that takes longer than 3 chrome releases....
Uhhh. Google Forms as critical election infrastructure?
All Internet services should have publicly disclosed headcount numbers..
[.. and yes, I know that Forms relies on a wide variety of shared infrastructure...]

I just came across your LinkedIn profile and thought I'd reach out to you because of your impressive experience at Google.
The things you find when cleaning out your inbox...
Paul, I am sorry. The IRS says that the surviving spouse may file a Married Filing Jointly return by e-filing, but in practice, many surviving spouses must file by mailing in even if they have the AGI correct. This is per the IRS and their efile engines. ~Heather :)
