If anyone wants to go with me to see Bauhaus in Portland tonight, please let me know within the next hour or so! 🙂 I have an extra ticket.

Google Android needs to provide an option to default to no notifications whatsoever. This seems like a basic thing. It’s very ergonomic. #HumanIT

It seems so obvious but the feature has been lacking for decades now. In fact it might have been there before but they probably took it away. One of those nasty regressions.

I would like my phone, by default, to do nothing. But that seems to be practically impossible to do. Wait for me to say, ” Hey! I want to know when my friends are calling me!”

I’m not done with this article yet. 🙂 I have MUCH to say about this subject and it is long overdue.

Ansible troubleshooting – not a valid attribute for a Play error

Thanks to this guy and his video. I was using “task” singular instead of “tasks” plural. I think it was a copy-and-paste error on my part and it was driving me nuts. (I’m just getting back into Ansible after a long time.)

The arrogance of software developers

I don’t quite know who to blame here. I know that the people who actually write the code and do the real work are not the same people who make the decisions about how things should be designed and implemented. And that’s probably a bad thing. But anyway! There is a massive lack of quality throughout software development in our culture and unfortunately it seems like we’ve come to accept it as a given. We don’t have to settle for this shit, people! We can expect more from our computers and software!
