Being back in an office has its perks, even for health. I have a Garmin fitness tracker, and I'm getting like halfway to my daily goals for steps taken and floors climbed without even thinking about it. Next I should start biking here, I don't live super far away.

Redgate SQL Source Control is better than nothing, but sometimes it just acts funky. I went to the Get Latest tab in SSMS today while my tests were running in a SQL Test tab, and an error started popping up. Even after the tests finished, it would pop up every time I went to Commit or Get Latest. Had to back up & restore from the test environment to get it working again...

It's weird to look at Twitter from the outside. "Join us! Join us!" cry out the little banners and popups and login screens. "Download the mobile app!"

Well, I tried. Several times, actually. Invariably Twitter would lock me out after a few hours and demand my phone number. When I entered it, it shook its head menacingly and said "Please enter your mobile phone number." (Turns out my number is registered as a landline and I'd probably have to change my number to fix it.)

I'm good.

Is it just me or is Netlify's dark mode unusable in Firefox? Some of the numbers and buttons are white on white!

Day 1 of keeping a book on top of my phone. Now when I go to grab my phone and scroll through social media, I grab the book instead!

Yet another developer here who appreciates open source, privacy, and decentralization. Huge thank you to everyone who made this possible, it's really cool!
