Exhaust-ed

kitchen with over-the-range microwave and vent tube extending up into ceiling

Today we installed an over-the-range microwave that we had special ordered from Lowe’s almost a month prior. Most of the time was waiting for it to arrive. We really wanted a unit that had a mute button. Why must microwaves beep incessantly? (Plus don’t get me started on the awful UI. Can’t GE hire a UI/UX Engineer to fix the damn interfaces on these things?!)

Gigabit over DOCSIS 3.1

So for the second time, Comcast said they wouldn’t run fiber to my house. But I did get a DOCSIS 3.1 modem. Here are the preliminary results:Speed Results: 850.88/35.23 Mbps; Latency 9 ms

Facts don't matter, this is news!

Can the AP colossally fuck up the facts any worse than it has? Their story says: Tesla says its keenly awaited Model 3 car for the masses will go on sale on Friday. This is just fucking wrong. Elon Musk said in this twitter post: Expecting to complete SN1 on Friday SN1 = Serial Number 1. The first production vehicle. Nowhere does he say that they’re going on sale this Friday. He says they expect to complete the first production vehicle on Friday. He goes on to tweet:

In all ways that matter, we are alone.

We may walk with others

We may laugh with others

We may talk with others

We may cry with others

These externalities do not define us

They reflect us.

Who cares to know another soul

To express earnest interest in the inner workings of an( )other?

For some this is not reality

But it is mine

And for that it is all of yours.

Snow More

So I think that Denver is done with any meaningful snow accumulation for the season, and I’m going to de-winterize our sprinkler system. Who wants a piece of the action?

Save It

Ya see, folks, Bannon may actually be a strategic genius. The more he gets people stirred up and upset over everything that he’s doing, the more people get fatigued that much faster and the sooner they give up and give in. “Fuck it,” people say. The farther Left you are, the faster you get exhausted, which is exactly what he wants. My advice is: pick one cause about which you care the most, and FIGHT FOR THAT WITH EVERYTHING YOU’VE GOT. Deprioritize everything else and quite possibly you should turn off the news and newspapers and TV.
