Can you see what's happening here? I go to import BookService mistakenly as it has no default export. VSC finds the named export, books, and swaps it in with the correct path. Awesome!

Hey VSCode just upped its game with autocomplete imports!

Wait, I think it’s the same video re-circulating. Looks live in some versions. Have watched a couple hours before.

Need to play catch-up on the congressional hearings on whistleblowers. Sounds like they’re summing up today. Thoughts, anyone at all?

I'm now the proud owner of a Commodore Amiga A500! It's absolutely filthy and feels disgusting to the touch, but a good project to have.

I haven't tried to power it on yet, but as far as I can tell everything is there, what it needs more than anything is a really good clean.

There is a little damage in spots on the casing, especially the top left, but it's part of its story. If anything, it makes me want to restore it even more the poor thing.

Manifest S1:E13 and suddenly there’s a cave. A wormhole-y time cave. Is this turning into Dark?

I was woken up by an SVT heart racing incident at 01:20 this morning. Rate was 133 bpm as recorded by Apple Watch. I did the MVM* at 01:25 and this stopped it. Rate dropped to 78 bpm.

Data in Apple Health shows the high rate started about 00:50. See pic.

Mo Gawdat, “Scary Smart”:

“If we managed to connect your brain to a bunch of flies so they could use all your intelligence to find the next pile of garbage, would you spend the rest of your life proudly serving their needs?”

Rhetorical I guess..

Apropos of nothing, I've always imagined blockchains as looking like some kind of brutalist/Borg jenga tower.

Cujo being told that it’s Python today and not JavaScript. The amount of code lectures that dog has heard - he must be better than an AI by now.

A large, many-leveled topic, but I offered this quick note a moment ago to a post critical of "faith":

The words of course get used in different ways by different people. But as a student of world religion and a Buddhist minister, I favor the distinction a professor of mine made:

"Belief" can be a closed-minded and often bigoted idea.

"Faith" can be an open-hearted and often humbling engagement with life's worth.
