What I love about Google Hangouts: trying to join one set up by somebody outside the company and being denied because the feature is disallowed for my domain. So I fire up another browser.

What I actually love about Hangouts: nothing.

When I got started, the bare 45-pound bar (20kg) was almost too much for me. I had no shoulder stability whatsoever. I had the forward-slump rounded shoulders thing all you nerds know well.

Now I can’t help but stand upright.

LIFT WEIGHTS. YES YOU.

I am making forward progress on sheer willpower this morning.

However, I did bench 120# with ease, so there’s that. (I really should have nailed 125# imo but I lost mental focus.)

THURSDAY. Wake up. Breathe. Drink coffee. Focus. Clear your mind. Drink more coffee. Self-actualize. Fight oppression. Have more coffee. Leave house. You're naked. Fight a raccoon. Make peace with the raccoons. Join their nation. You're a raccoon now. Eat garbage. Drink coffee.

The joke used to be “every sufficiently long-lived Postgres installation eventually becomes a message queue” and now it looks like we’ve reversed that in its entirely twitter.com/martinkl/status/11

Just to follow up on the feline computer assistance program, Mina did *not* offer to assist with new graphics card installation. Fezzik tried to turn the computer off, but this time missed the power button. (He usually manages to press it.) Oswin handled misplacing screws.
