Gonna need a bigger cup of coffee today.

I think @Spotify needs a “purge this from everything” feature. I made the mistake of listening to a terrible cover via Spotify and i really don’t want their systems making music decisions based on that.

By the age of 35 you should have 12 clever domain names you had great product ideas for but never got around to creating them.

I realized last night that if they rewrote ”The Pina Colada Song” today it would end with both people turning on location services on Tinder and realizing they’re both in the same room and he would have sent her a dick pic at some point.

So I played skeeball my back feels like I’ve spent 12 hours digging a ditch.

The fact that column-span does not work in @firefox yet is annoying. The fact that is been in their bug system for 8 god damn years elevates this to depressing.

I hate Word/Pages so much that I built my resume in @SketchApp. It was simple and looks exactly the way I want it to. The only trick is converting to outlines and exporting it to a PDF to save it, but once you do that you're golden. Somewhere a print designer's eye is twitching

Interesting thing I never realized. If you try to use the CSS calc() function with a Sass variable, you need to interpolate the value or it will error, not what I expected honestly

@kadavy And I have two different types of boards: people boards and project boards. If you’re interested I can give you more info on how I set them up, but they totally become my work brain.

@kadavy It’s all about the daily standup and a trello board with who working on what. The stand up is key because it gives ppl the opportunity to tell you if there’s a problem. The board gets all the info out of your head

So many people equate their current job with their career. They’re not the same thing. Losing a job is not the end of your career. No one job will make or break you. If you play a longer game you don’t need to worry about any one job.
