Finished reading Dark Matter by Blake Crouch. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ A fast-paced read. Would make a great fun movie.

Finished reading Mutation by Robin Cook. ⭐⭐⭐ – Barely three stars, really. Interesting premise but predictable.

Brent Simmons on why he listens to podcasts at 1x. I’d quote some of it, but you should just read the entire thing. He echoes so many things I’ve covered here on the blog over the years.

I almost lost the majority of today’s work. Walked away for a bit. Came back and restored it in two clicks. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve done this over my career. Especially with programming challenges. Walking away is a pro tip.

Speaking of podcasts, I’m really enjoying BirdNote – a very short daily podcast about birds full of great bird sounds.

Yes! The episode of How I Built It with Joe Casabona that I’m featured in is now live! We recorded it in early-September and it was worth the wait. Well produced, tons of links. If you’re into blogging check it out.

After further study, what I photographed was an American Mink and not a Fisher. I’ll have to provide an update.
