I am probably working on Hubski.

Send me a PM or post with the tag #bugski if you think something is broken.

I filter #thebeatles.

I do not agree with everything that I post. I hope you don't either.

It'd be great (truly awful) if you could see the characters as they were entered (and edits) real time.

I just hate when I start to type something, then get drawn away.

I didn’t realize I missed Janet Yellen.

Yeah, it could have been a better article. Basically an anecdote to explain a trend.

Like many New Yorker articles, it could stand to be shorter, too.

I really can’t agree. It’s Notre Dame.

Have you been in it?

TBH I can't believe that anyone entertains anything except for a restoration that is true to the original.

It's Notre Dame.

    I came across this the other day. On the one hand, it looks a lot like masters'-degree interns whose time is not being utilized efficiently. On the other hand, it looks like a respect for history.

That is the opposite of time wasted.

If we could only have an economy that valued that. Not just for the sake of the product, but for the sake of the creator/craftsperson.

It's kind of ironic they are based in Rotterdam. I think it was veen that related a saying like: "Rotterdam was first destroyed by Nazis, then by architects.

I noticed a paucity of weathering data. Maybe for the interior?

Rather than print, maybe computer-guided chiseling?

No. It's been an egregious you-must-be-this-rich-to-play model. Now it seems closer to a literacy test. Progress?

If I were to describe you, 'asshole' wouldn't be on the list. You have an honesty of opinion that I admire. But I've never known you to share one with malice.

Dude, we all need recovery tricks. Be thankful to know what some are.

Godspeed.

When people say something like that, I think it's important to understand that they are likely motivated by the potential rather than the fault.

Do you agree with them?

Smart is a concept that does little good for anyone. It doesn't matter if you are smart or not if you do shit.

I started a new painting.

It's a scene I have painted before, but this time I'll be painting autumn instead of summer. This is my first session:

Our labrador retriever puppy loves to eat poop. Deer poop, bunny poop, whatever. He doesn't have a refined poop palate. Predictably, it gives him diarrhea, but he hasn't made the connection. I was up a few times last night.

Tin-Can development continues apace. The next update will have threads and likes, which are both interesting to implement in an app without a shared database.

I deleted all my Twitter replies after getting into a pointless debate about masks and mold with Brendan Eich. I'm just sticking to likes and posting my paintings.

IMHO you could significantly improve git usability by changing nothing but the names.

Yeah TC uses timestamps. Threads will be in the next update.

I almost nuked this account, but it's been around for 1379 days. That's dedication.
