I use Zoom at work, but have had to use Google Meet and GoToMeeting with people outside the company in the last week.

Zoom’s quality and reliability are wildly better.

What is Zoom’s secret here?

3 years ago, I moved to Stockholm. I thought I would for sure be thinking of leaving around this time, but I have fallen in love with this country.

I feel just as much at home here as I did in San Francisco—the only place that ever felt like home in the US.

Long term physical distancing questions on my mind:

1. When do I shave my head? It took me so long to be able to rock a quiff.

2. When do I start investing in at-home workout weights, bench, pullup bar, etc?

If you try to support your local book store, please tell me why.

If you are sad about local book stores going out of business, please tell me why.

I really wish I could without losing touch with a few select people.

Senator Sanders supporters attacking Senator Warren right now need to remember to


or STFU and unfollow kthx.

Fishing in Stardew Valley on iPadOS remains frakking impossible. I have not caught a single fish since the skill introduction.

The Web is the only platform you can both author and execute on an iPad Pro and it is the only software that can run on iPadOS without needing the blessing of Apple’s app store.

What is the Golang equivalent of Spring Boot?

(Spring Boot is great, but assume I can’t change the company’s language preference.)

Home delivery of groceries is now 10 days out in Stockholm. Unreal.

I have mild illness anxiety. I’ve learned how to manage it over the years. Normalized social distancing has felt great, but ’s 14-day incubation feels like a looming threat. A thermometer reassures me I don’t have a fever. Stats reassure me I am likely to be ok if I do.
