Do not shop on first coffee

Do not shop on first coffee

Got sidetracked while picking up breakfast stuff from Uwajimaya. Should probably have finished my first cup of coffee before I left. Could have been worse. There was an entire boy band worth of that Babinski Cold Brew. I only took one.

Meanwhile, someone put a flyer on the apartment bulletin board for the Earshot Jazz Festival. Checked to see if any of the names were familiar. Most were new to me, but I recognized — and enjoy — Knife Knights.

A jazz context makes more sense for Knife Knights than rap/hip-hop, which is where I usually see them filed. Heck, genres are meaningless anyways. My favorite music stores just arrange albums alphabetically.

Anyways, time to drink some coffee!

Ello? I only remember you exist because of your emails. Delete account.

MeWe? No API. Delete account.

Instagram? No API. Awful link handling. Delete account. Delete —del— I said “delete” dammit.

Maybe later. Uninstalled from my phone at least.

Oh right, speaking of emails. Classmates. What a terrible idea that was. Nostalgia is not my strong suit. Delete account.

That one took a minute.

Facebook? Well, that’s my main contact for too many folks. I can uninstall it though.

Oh, I can only disable it. Yeah you’re on the list now too, Samsung.

Leaving the rest because I have other stuff to do.

This note reflects entirely too foul of a mood. Throwing in a drawing from the other day. There. Now smile.

Pioneer Square has a view now

Pioneer Square has a view now

We went out for dinner the other evening, and once the sun was no longer blasting directly in our eyes – yay for precession of the equinoxes – we were treated to a hell of a sight.

See, the Alaskan Way Viaduct has blocked any real view of the Puget Sound from ground level since the 1950s. But it’s going away. Near Pioneer Square, it’s gone. I can look right at the water.

Until they start building up that juicy real estate, of course. But I’ll enjoy it while I can.

I FIXED MY .Pages

Too tired to make it make sense. My site broke under Hugo .58. No front page listing. I fixed it. Yay!

Instead of (for notes):

{{- range first 1 (where .Pages "Section" "note") -}}

I used

{{- range first 1 (where .Site.RegularPages "Section" "note") -}}

I also fixed the RSS feed, and updated the feeds post with those (very similar) details.

A Microsoft Linux Conference?

The two day event will feature presentations by the Microsoft team behind the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) feature; the creators of the ‘Pengwin‘ WSL distributions; and (more pertinent to our tastes, perhaps) the Ubuntu on WSL team at Canonical.

The free-but-small WSLConf is scheduled for March of next year, so WSL 2 will probably be generally available. Much easier than staying caught up with the Fast Ring.

I may have to check this out.

As a fan of Slashdot and Everything2 – and actual user of PerlMonks – in years past, I’m sure the next half hour will be chock full of nostalgia for me.
