At @MissionCloud, one of our core values is to “Embrace Life.” Startups require a lot of patience, dedication, and flexibility, which can lead to stress. Today I was able to help a great team member wrap their arms around life. So gratifying 🥰
Nice win for the Rams over the Browns tonight. Plenty of issues to clean up, but happy to be 3-0. Goff needs to be more careful with the ball. Woods had a few drops. Missed a FG. Limit mistakes, and the Rams win by three scores.
Do I think The Matrix is dangerous? No, absolutely not. It is very much a product of its time. A groundbreaking and entertaining film. But, the technique it used to appeal to its audience can absolutely be exploited.
I rewatched The Matrix for the first time in years this weekend thanks to its 20th anniversary re-release in Dolby theaters. I was struck by how badly I wish I could see it again for the first time, but also was shaken by the dangerous message it sends to white, tech-savvy men.
Smoking a pork shoulder today. Got started a bit later in the morning than expected, so running it at a higher cook temp. Left the top vent open a bit too much, which also caused a spike in cook temp while I was at church. Follow along at https://🐷🔥.ws/now
I use “type to Siri” all the time on my iPad Pro. Its fantastically powerful and a great feature, but annoyingly, even if you have “silent” mode enabled and your volume all the way down, Siri still audibly responds to your commands. Why?! #shhhh
Went to see Blinded by the Light with @cleverangel tonight. In spite of so many things, I really enjoyed it. Its nice to see a genuine, feel-good movie once in a while. Especially one that dunks on fascists.

It was finally time to upgrade my Synology NAS, a four bay DS415+. I just ordered a five bay DS1019+, which is faster, more expandable, and has hardware acceleration for h.264 and HEVC. Anyone want to buy my old unit? It’s great, I have just outgrown it!
