Well that was a hell of a morning. Now knocking-off time.

I know a LOT more about PostgreSQL functions and triggers than I did before.

Just repaired a cut fingernail with UV cure resin. Can't get enough of this stuff!

on the subject of usb-c have you seen pcb-only usb ports? scribe the right sigils into your circuit board design program and choose the right thickness and you can just plug a cable straight into your pcb with no port hardware

Ditto with Platinum. But at least that's a $10 CD on Amazon, so ordered that.

Really can't be having with this Fred Flintstone physical media.

Seriously? If the only way I can buy Mike Oldfield's Incantations is a $307 CD, of course I'm going to rip an MP3 from YouTube.

Why isn't it on iTunes?

Woohoo! I've just discovered that the Kindle desktop app, if you right click on an icon on the toolbar, you get a context menu that lets you show icon only, text only, icon and text.

Proosopagnosia makes icons problematic for me, so this is a valuable accessibility feature for me.

ASSUME makes an ASS out of U and ME.

I was ASSUMING that the function from the (nearly) production code actually worked properly. It doesn't.

In a contrast to drunk toots, just reading through my excessively caffeinated Slack posts last night.

Had to have after-dinner coffee to override the seroquel in order to have a call with the Guy in Austria. Not to be repeated too often though. Trashed this morning. Going to bed two hours late can do that.

Drinking coffee after dinner may not have been wise, but I did have that phone call. I'm now up 2 hours after bedtime, and still dumping massive work conversations into Slack.

Went to grab another glass of wine before bed, and someone assumed I'd gone to bed, and occupied my chair.

It started off as forbidden, but turned into an understanding. BUT NOT UNTIL I HAVE GONE TO BED.

Why yes, wolves and bears feature in my new job.

I knew about the wolves, but only learnt about the bear attack in today's meeting.

The Austrian Alps sound - interesting.

I have no idea whether I have a meeting after dinner. Friday evening meetings aren't really my cup of tea, but it's the price one pays, living in an early time zone. I really wanted to be making friends with some wine, not being dragged into a conference call, as the technical person, to harass errant vendors.

The embarrassment of not being able to pronounce trochanteric (new word for me) when on the phone to the medical imaging people. Of course I've worked it out NOW, but I should have done that before I called.

Am I alone in insisting that character column sizes in databases must be powers of 2?

There were some inadequate column sizes, so I've gone and fixed those up, but everything else is now 2^n.

There is a temptation to "I am drunk, AMA," but I know full well that I would answer any question with a complaint about my fucking FEET.

Chronic pain is a bugger. This person is hitting the tramadol.

The Austrian Guy is at a conference in Bad Ischl, and has posted pictures of historic buildings on Slack. In these plague times, and when I can't travel for various other reasons, I really appreciate this. I can see the world, and feel connected. (A fair bit of what I've done so far has been supporting the Austrian operation, so that connection is important.)
