So, my wife and I have conjured a way out of the Ship of Theseus Paradox.

Replace every part as they wear with Performance parts.

The Speedboat of Theseus solution.

software engineering is a social science. you're not solving computer problems, you're using computers to solve people problems. that's why it's so important to design accordingly

Look, the only time travel metric for how far back or forward you've gone is one that is relative to the time/date/year you left.
BC/AD is not universal, and any attempt to set a universal measure would have to agree on a starting point.
This way, you could travel and know it's T minus 1200, or T plus 100. A fellow traveler might describe themselves in your time as T-50, for which you flip the sign and know for certain it's T+50 to you.
None of this Gregorian calendar nonsense. :-)

"The world's unfair, kiddo" is not an argument for "then allow unfairness", but instead is an argument for "Then make the world *FAIR*"

anxiety, low phone battery %, transportation concerns 

taking apart flatpack furniture has never been as scary for us as it was last night at 1:45am with our phone's battery at 1% and us still needing an Uber ride as our only way to get home with the large pile of parts

design talk though: I love that the Myst games use careful exploration and observation of your surroundings as their most core loop - you encounter puzzles through it, you find clues for them through it, and your reward for solving puzzles is normally access to new places to explore

this means the single most important thing is to not rush it and really take your time taking in what's around you and playing around with any interesting things you see

dream logging, full on Nazi edition 

Had a very long dream with multiple interwoven threads from the past and present. Mostly they focused around an event from an unspecified war and ethnic cleansing. There was even a nice scene at the end where the former Nazi sat down with his grandchild to talk about how the things people think are necessary at the time are often actually the wrong thing to be doing, and how he should have been a better person when he was younger.

When designing a user interface, imagine some old woman using it, say Margaret Hamilton, and she's clicking your app's buttons and saying to you, as old people do,

"Young whippersnapper, when I was your age, I sent 24 people to the ACTUAL MOON with my software in 4K of RAM and here I am clicking your button and it takes ten seconds to load a 50 megabyte video ad and then it crashes

I'm not even ANGRY with you, I'm just disappointed."

Repeat after me:

My experience is not everybody's experience.

My perspective is not everybody's perspective.

My "obvious" is not everybody's "obvious".

"I hope you like the books I loaded on there for you..."
She couldn't hear me over her broad translucent fins slapping the sand & surf excitedly.

"I can finally read in bed! Oh oh I can finally join a book club!"

"Uh, I dunno if there's any beach-side ones here..."

"My girlfriend will just have to start one, then."

"I'll look into it tonight, love."
