so.. that movie trilogy they did of Atlas Shrugged a little while back. I didn't watch it because bleh but apparently they didn't contract the actors for all three films so every film has different casting. That's some seriously fucked up planning.

The sad thing is that Fountainhead was actually my introduction to architecture and fueled my love of modernist, properly well done brutalist architecture. Out of all the horrors of that time of my life and awful awful *foams at mouth* awfulness of rand, I do have to thank her for that.

The farm from which our local zebras escaped is still holding 34 zebras prisoner. Anyone up for a little adventure?

New laptop from work. Thinkpad. I forgot how awful and spongy that keyboard is. Luckily, it's getting slotted into a dock setup and I won't use that keyboard again. I do miss the trackpoint but the rest of that keyboard is garbage.

A Great Eagle at the pittsburgh National Aviary was mysterious set loose and is now on the run. I hope he makes it down here to hang out with the zebra.

Technical debt is a myth created to deprioritize work that may be boring or awful. There are only two kinds of work: that which moves the product / code forward, and shit that doesn't need doing.

Maybe that ex-rockstar shit all over the codebase and it's awful in there. Changing all that, does it make it easier to work on, allow you to add new features later or unbreak existing ones? If it does, great, get it on the schedule. If not, then it doesn't need doing and we can move on with life.

I have to go back to twitter don't I, to stay up on anything gaming. Looks like I'm going to miss the new Switch for a while too.
