Nothing fancy, barkeep. Just stopping in for a minute.

It's slowly dawning on me that a problem that I have at work is NP-hard. Fun fun.

Vancouver this weekend, Orcas Island next.

I use DDG as primary on desktop. I also frequently make use of the ! syntax (eg !g for Googling, !wiki for Wikipedia, !smile for Amazon, !wa for WolframAlpha, etc), which made the transition much easier. !g allows me to use Google for stuff I know DDG will choke on.

Freshroast SR 500. Operating principle is that of a fancy popcorn popper. Chaff collector, variable heat, fan speed and timing.

Where in hell's bells do you get fresh beans for $9/lb in Seattle?

I just bought a roaster; should pay for itself in about 3 months or so at $5/lb green beans.

The White Mountains are no joke. On a summer trip I got caught out with a rain that turned from mild to not-fun over the span of an hour, with large wind gusts catching us on exposed ridge for a couple miles until we could go below treeline again.

oh by the way when will you be returning to the PNW? I will be gone overseas from next weekend until beginning of July.

let's do a thing

It's been a while, barkeep. A tall glass of something cold and refreshing.

- Moved from Los Angeles to Seattle.

- Finished out my internship at SpaceX, started one at Boeing.

- Place in Seattle has a grand piano, which has been amazing.

- I made this data visualization over the weekend.

- I bike to work now (don't always bike home...¯\_(ツ)_/¯)

So yeah, things are good.

A lot of LA Lyft drivers drive new Fusions. Or new Kias. My impression is that they're using the Lyft lease program or whatever that is...

    The attackers used BGP — a key protocol used for routing internet traffic around the world — to reroute traffic to Amazon’s Route 53 service, the largest commercial cloud provider who count major websites such as as customers.

    They re-routed DNS traffic using a man in the middle attack using a server at Equinix in Chicago.

    From there, they served traffic for over two hours.

And a beautiful stage 1 landing!
