@gamehawk Yeah, but that's how the article phrased it, which I thought odd.

Funniest thing I've run across this week... a serious article, on a respectable cooking site, about pepitas, where they spend quite a lot of space insisting that pepitas are not pumpkin seeds, but that they are the seeds of a hull-less variety of... pumpkin.

@fribbledom You know, I think our politicians and celebrities are really doing us a favor here... they scoff at the infection, then they get the infection, and they act as an example of how easily it's transmitted.

It's kind of ironic that modern grassroots aid organizations can't get a new project off the ground if they can't find a web designer with time to build the website for it. "People are starving and we want to help them, but first we need someone to build the website."

@fribbledom This would make great swag for my company to hand out at conferences!
(Real talk, we've cancelled all conference attendance, in-person interviews, etc.)

Of all the lines from Babylon 5, Londo Mollari's has stuck with me the clearest... "My shoes are too tight, and I've forgotten how to dance."

I want to have words with any UI designer who has decided scroll bars need to be only 5 pixels wide. Tired of having to have 360 no-scope accuracy to grab a scroll bar with the mouse.

@art Don't I know it. There have been times I've wished I could leave this field and do something with my hands again, but I have never been so thankful to be working in IT. Our company's revenue is even up this month.

This spammer who keeps sending me faux-Maersk messages titled "Bill of Landing" is just trying to get me to answer "IT'S BILL OF *LADING* YOU MORON" to confirm my email is active, aren't they?

Commit message of the day:

> this really fixes it. i know. i tested in in prod.

@tdorey Also, stories. has free audiobooks, no login or personal info required.

@tdorey My favorite book to read out loud is The Take of Despereaux. The language is just so elegant and easy to read, once you get used to pronouncing Chiaroscuro's name, and it had such a fairy tale feel.

@gamehawk Stop ruining my joke. Also, I don't count oatmeal as breakfast cereal. Saving that for when we're out of milk.
