@bigzaphod I made myself a cheat sheet of info while learning KiCad, but then I put it down for enough years that the app has gone through several major versions and I don't even understand many of my notes. Oops!

Planted out 250-ish zinnias, a mix of Meteor and California Giant. 🤞🏼🤞🏼… and then admired some lilies.

The 5000 year old rocks are going to be just fine my dude. In a few or dozen decades when the last humans are gone, the paint will have long since weathered off.

@schwa Some decades ago I added an x86 FPU exception handler for breakpoints in our debug builds. I don't recall exactly why, probably chasing some bug, but damn did it AppKit light it up.

@MichaelWhelan I read the Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn trilogy as quickly as they came out and loved them. A month or so ago, I was in Powell's in Portland standing looking at the shelf and just blinking in bemusement since I'd somehow missed that there were any new books, let alone so many. I'm kinda scared to read them, I have to admit, since the end of the originals felt so good… 🤞🏻🤞🏻

@film_girl Oh, that's maybe the asshat my son and I heard after the Sounders match on Sat!? We stand in front of the drums in the supporter section (ok, well I do, my son is one of the drummers) and my hearing isn't so good anymore as a result, and DAMN that shit was still startlingly loud.

@mmalc So again, I’m wondering how it is “elitist” to want to protect creative humans from benefiting from their labor w/o it being stolen by the rich. Do you have an actual argument other than iykyk wink wink nudge nudge?

@mmalc idk man, putting "creative" in quotes is a bit of a tell.

I mean, I'm all fucking in favor of if you see someone stealing diapers or baby formula, no you fucking didn’t. But if you can't make an avi -- I think you are going to be just fine w/o being complicit in billionaires harvesting your fellow humans efforts.

@mmalc Yes. So, I'm wondering how it is “elitist” to decry the fabulously wealthy stealing the work of artists who are barely scraping by to regurgitate their combined works so the masses can have a laugh as they pay a few coins to the mothership. Drop those billions in art teacher pay and we'll all be richer.

For those at #WWDC this coming week, I hope you have a great time! But, I'm also relieved to not have my summer eaten up yet again by trying to adopt the new shiny over just a few months. Sure would have loved having the new OS come out in early Jan so the dreary part of the year could be spent more inside, but I'm sure Apple product marketing would laugh themselves unconscious at the thought.

Pulling into my driveway, I see someone looking at my peonies and then calling out to her partner, “I need my phone!" She rushes over to get it and then back to lean into my planting strip and takes a picture of one of my peonies before running away. I mean ... thank you, but I'm not scary, and would love to chat. #Bloomscrolling

While deadheading roses, noticed the aphids are currently winning the battle. There are plenty of ladybug nymphs and some adults, but I find myself thinking, “damn y’all get busy!”

A few minutes later, “NOT LIKE THA… oh wait, yes exactly like that!”

Reminded of the time we integrated OmniDazzle's Pixie Dust plug-in into @OmniFocus so that completing a task would emit a burst of sparkles from the checkbox, only on April 1st.
