Airport people are way too chipper for 4:30am

Wow. Unplugged my computer before the storm last night... But forgot to unplug the USB HDD dock that was plugged into the wall. Now my computer won't turn on. Dock still works though.

Getting to contribute to an open source project has been one of the highlights of already really great year for me.

@HexDSL your peertube videos dont have a language flagged on them.

For some reason when I feel sick, it seems like I'll never feel well again.

ISP wanted me to reboot my modem to help address a neighborhood wide packet loss issue...

A day to celebrate that you, me, everyone isn't nuclear vapour right now.
SP - disobeyed orders and military protocol, used his own thinking, and by doing so averted nuclear retaliation based on false alarms that would likely have caused a mass nuclear war in 1983.

Stanislav Petrov, often referred to as "The man who saved the world" died in December 2017
