Oh god I checked Daring Fireball and there was a Slack icon hot take why did I look why

Unlocked iPhone. Saw new Slack icon. Put down iPhone. Rubbed temples.

I had a dream last night that Apple revamped Xcode with a stunningly beautiful UI and a new language that was more fun to write than Ruby. It was a good dream.

I’ve started writing verbose, multi-line commit messages and I really like it. Kind wonder why it took me so long to start doing this.

Hope all my friends in Austin are doing alright with the boil-water order. I just heard it could last for another two weeks. Ugh.

So far today:

  • Internet was out at home.
  • VPN client refused to connect at coffee shop.
  • Word will not open when I double-click a document.
  • Jira (for one specific client) refuses to load.
  • My email client refuses to send email.

Iā€™m doing that thing again where Iā€™m wearing my headphones but not listening to anything.
