My boss is asking for input on what laptops we want for work machines. I’ve been on Mac for a while but am willing to try something else. Windows is probably not happened though it wouldn’t be the end of the world if that’s where we go.
Any suggestions that laptops that pair well with Linux distros? I really don’t want to be fighting drivers all the time. Good video call experience is a must.
I don’t mind going to Toronto for meetings as much as I used to, but the transit time makes me really appreciate working remote. 2.5-3 hours by 🚌➡️🚌➡️🚌➡️🚊➡️🚶♂️➡️🚃.
We were supposed to get rail service to Toronto direct from my city in a few years, but the political party changed and one of the most beneficial public projects proposed in a long time got delayed indefinitely.
One of the reasons I cancelled my iTunes Music subscription last year was that I just listened to the same set of songs over-and-over again. I figured I'd buy them piece meal instead, but never did.
Ironic that the first thing I did when I signed up was rejoice at the joy of listening to those songs again that I hadn't listened to all year.
I keep separate notebooks for my engineering notes and daily scribblings for personal and work projects.
I have 2 pages left in my personal book, and 5 pages left in my work book.
The odds of filling both up on the same day were astronomically low (since it takes me years to fill a personal notebook), but now it actually seems likely.
I got some heavy-duty Super Glue and reattached the pull. I filled the plastic part with glue and re-attached it. There's lots of surface-area for the glue to hold onto... but now I'm basically just pulling on glue when I zip up my bag.
Fingers cross that it holds a little longer. I love this bag, but having a missing pull on the main compartment is a little bit maddening.
I have a Thule laptop backpack that has gone everywhere with me for over 2 years. I took my time in choosing it and I think I chose well.. it has endured my abuses very well.
Except for one tiny detail. The zipper pull broke on me about a month ago. They're actually built really sturdy, except that - for the sake of vanity - the pull has the brand name THULE cut out of the metal tab. This left only a little metal holding on each side, and this is where it broke.

My daughter’s reading is definitely improving with the more challenging books.
To now, she had settled with the early learning readers and refused to take on the challenge of something harder. There’s only so many times she could read the easy stuff before she stopped getting anything out of them.
But she has a tendency to look at the page and then shut down before she even starts. The little readers are still a good ice breaker for those moments.
I’ve always avoided ruby because my first exposure to it was DSLs like Vagrantfiles.
I’ve always felt that the syntax hides too much. The main culprits being optional brackets on calls. “Is it a method or a property?” I guess you can argue that it doesn’t matter, but I don’t consider it to be more expressive to hide such details.
The other blocker I’ve recently come to grips with is blocks and procs. They syntax was just super bizarre compared to other languages I’ve used.
