The reward for running 5 minutes early in the morning is sitting on a stationary train for five extra minutes, waiting for it to depart.

When a new version of a service you run implements a complicated GUI configuration system on top of its config, and you generate your config out of scripts, and they fight. :|

I was just told by my SSL cert vendor (which bought my old vendor) that their new prices are so incredibly high because they've had to invest for the coming future of quantum computing to keep me secure.

I'm looking for a new SSL cert vendor. Trying to figure out if we can go with Let's Encrypt.

Why does my dryer have a "low/medium/high" setting if no clothing care label says anything but "tumble dry low"?

I am fairly certain _The Neverending Story_ was inspired by laundry.

So what I'm getting from watching multiple Kickstarters involving printing books... you should budget to scrap you entire first print run. You're going to make a mistake, or your printer is going to make a mistake they won't consider worthy of a reprinting, and you're going to have a load of books you aren't willing to ship to backers. I've seen this sink a project, or end with the creator losing money.

I'm not well versed in the style so I tried my best ^^;

We have this weird phenomenon at work. We have a ton of ceramic coffee cups with the company logo. The fancy coffee machine is in the basement kitchen. The largest number of seats are on the 3rd floor. Over time, all the coffee cups migrate to the 3rd floor kitchen shelf. Occasionally I box a bunch up and take them back to the basement. But I don't drink coffee.

37 minutes stuck in an elevator. Not as bad as I expected.

Been stuck in the work elevator for half an hour. Boss set off the fire alarm trying to reset it. I'll be deaf when I get out.

I wonder if tech recruiters would have more success if they realized how many of their potential recruits don't like phones and would rather do the initial, "Is this interesting to me?" via email or chat.

Honestly I'm looking at Tumblr. I get very little engagement there, especially since The NSFW Event™.

This morning when I sat down at my desk, my cat came and sniffed my hand... sniffed and licked each fingertip, then nibbled my thumb. I'm concerned his food dish might be empty.

I picked up a six-pack(!) of canned air at Costco the same time my husband bought a four-pack on Amazon so I'm pretty sure we're on a DEA watchlist now.

This is why I've stopped backing video game Kickstarters and "early access" on Steam... "Estimated delivery: Jan 2016." It's now Jul 2019 and I'm still getting updates that, while what they've made is impressive, it's clear they've probably got more than a year left to go. I don't want a game released before it's ready, but this watching updates for years has been grueling. And the last, though good, didn't live up to expectations created through years of weekly developer updates.

I dislike this "quick survey" trend of "How likely are you to recommend?" then "Please tell us the reason for your score." I mean, just because I feel an 8 for your business doesn't mean I want to dig into and articulate *why* I feel that way. That's just lazy survey design and is asking too much of customers who see survey requests practically every day.
