Google asking me for a phone number to “make sure you own the account”.

Asking me for a phone number when there’s none linked to the account does 0 to ensure I own it.

Wish they’d be honest. “We want more of your PII and we’re going to lock you out if you don’t give it.”

Lately I’ve consistently failed to do anything productive outside of work.

Google being Google again. Banning from Google Play.

I don't know how anyone works for Google without feeling ashamed, these days.

The Books are good music for coding as long as you can keep yourself from having any existential crises.

Are you a heavy terminal user who hates switching contexts?

Here's one way to set up and navigate terminal workspaces without the suffering:

Dicts, strings, and wonderful things in Python 3.9. What I'm looking forward to:

Slack looooves to give me a notification, then wait 5 minutes to actually put the message in the app.

Nothing like searching for a message that isn't there.

Mozilla's layoffs were the kick in the butt I needed to finally set up a recurring donation.
