- Dropped off, picked up. - Job. - Went to the doctor, got a physical for the first time in five years. I guess I'm mostly fine but have high triglycerides. Also, I have to poop into a box? (It was presented as an alternative to a colonoscopy, which they are starting to recommend when you hit 45.) Actually ran into Eric in the waiting room! We both had blood removed from our bodies. - Read some more Python Distilled.
I think just those things took up the "tasks" part of the day!
Sometimes you might see a type explicitly attached to a name. For example:
x: int = 42
The type is merely a hint to improve code readability. It can be used by third-party code-checking tools. Otherwise, it is completely ignored. It does not prevent you from assigning a difterent kind of value later.
😨 That’s a dangerous thing to leave hanging around.
- Dropped off, picked up. - Made some jingles for what I thought was a new Zoom feature, but the prompt was apparently talking about a hypothetical feature. - Job, though had to bail early because the booster caught up with me, and I had to spend a couple hours trying to sleep but not actually sleeping. - Scheduled a fence estimate. - Emailed a friend back. - Made dinner, though I took a shortcut. - Went to curriculum night. Met the guy's teacher and speech pathologist.
I have this roll of magnetic tape. I have no idea how I got it or how it’s used, but I’m crazy gluing it to this whiteboard to make it into a magnetic whiteboard, which is probably not how it is to be used.
This has been the mildest booster reaction yet: Just tiredness and mild arm pain. I don’t want to risk going into wipe out territory, so I didn’t do a run. I did walk to the river, though. I can see why old people sit by bodies of water.
I'm trying this out as my exit music. I think this will be heard less often because people often exit all at once, so I went with something slightly more dissonant and attention-getting. (It's an adapted outtake from Tower Climb.)
- Dropped off, picked up. - Talked to neighbor about fence. - Started scheduling D&D stuff. - Asked for a fence quote. - Job. - Got my second COVID booster and flu shot. - Did some game thinking. Even for a game that I'm just messing around with that I'm very unlikely to finish, I have to think seriously about whether it's going to be played with a controller or a mouse. Because that affects every decision. (This is probably obvious to everyone, but I somehow thought I could write code in a way that would let me kick the can down the road.)
Wow. A key paper in Alzheimer’s research from the ‘00s had parts that were faked. It happens to be in support of the idea that amyloids cause Alzheimer’s, which research had been focused on for the last few decades, with few concrete results.
- Sent D&D XP/logistics email. (And messed up the XP part!) - Set up a therapist meeting, worked out billing. Boy, This Is Really Expensive, as they say. - Called bank. Apparently, there is a state law that requires your savings account to be "locked" if it has been inactive for a certain amount of time. Which I guess helps with some kind of crimes, but also defeats the point of some kinds of savings. - Walked around and looked at fences, noted fence companies. Then, looked up fence companies. Once again, there are a ton of horror stories out there. Do not hire contractors if you can help it. - Set up offlineimap to grab a bunch of email that, years ago, I had moved to a Google business account for some reason. Starting tomorrow, they're going to start charging for it or cut off access. Have downloaded 15800/31799 messages so far. - Job.
A lot of today really got away from me. And while I was watching it closely, nonetheless!
