Oh, forgot to mention this publicly, but I quit Google again. Was working at Fitbit, they got acquired, I had a PTSD breakdown about working there again, you know how it goes.

My last day was Friday, and I already feel much better now that I'm out of there.

I find it baffling that, 25 years ago when Windows 95 came out, 3D-styled UI elements felt fresh and exciting, but now everyone and their dog works as hard as they can to make UIs look like a flat sheet of paper.

Hey @andrewhussie@twitter.com, I borrowed Roxy Lalonde to be the mascot of my open source software project, let me know if that's not okay and I'll turn it into a Police "Roxanne" reference instead!

Hey folks! I've been working on a pretty sweet frontend proxy named Roxy, written in . It uses to automatically TLS encrypt all traffic between end users and Roxy, and it has support for basic static file serving as well.

What was your first Windows?

2GB of disk space? I would have killed for that as a kid.

Oh, also: Norton Commander 5.51, the last release that ever came out for DOS (1998).

The memories.

Note to self: construct a Huffman coding for computation itself, the maximum possible lossless compression for executable code.

Specifically, trying to wrap my head around a mapping from the computables to the counting numbers via a Huffman code weighted for the probability that each computable will be computed by a simulation of the universe. Add "data is code" to brain, stir gently.

Oh no. 3am brain is trying to construct a total order over the computable numbers.

Hot take 🔥

Physics, Computer Science, Mathematics, and Philosophy are all the same field of study, if you know what you're doing.

Woe betide you if you try to truly understand 1 without the other 3.
