Now that I am not under the companies that tried to work me to death, I take off every chance I get! As long as what I need to do gets done, no one cares.

You will have to forgive them, they are Canadians. They take all sorts of holidays for family and friends. I mean, Monday is a holiday for us in British Columbia. It is family day. They have this silly notion of not working your entire life and having a work life balance that is as close as possible to 50/50. Lamers!

Again, others are taking it off to be with family. I am taking it off to be with code! :wub:

The real holiday we should all be celebrating is that today is my boy's birthday :)

Went to a visit yesterday as I was off work due to weather, I felt really bad when all the kids came up to talk to me and cuddle with me when their birth mom was sat right next to me... Watched her face sink in real time and it broke my heart, but there isn't much I could do about it.

Oh, I'm all for bunking off for whatever reason. But surely you can think of a better excuse than the Feast of St. Hallmark...

Speaking of bunking off work, I just booked a room for PyCon. Pittsburg in April - sounds like a jazz standard that nobody ever got around to writing.

So today I was reading through a few of my old blog posts where I stumbled across an article from 2013 where I outlined the dangers of Facebook's Graph and how it could be used in dangerous ways to build profiles of its users in an attempt to data collect on thousands of users. Then it hit me... I essentially predicted Cambridge Analytica (even funnier is that it was founded 2013). Did I give them the idea? ;) If only people had read my article earlier.

But anyways, today is a drizzly day 1 of a slow 3 day weekend and I am working on some great personal code projects that are turning out great. They will never be released to the public as they are for personal use but things are going well. :shuriken:

Oh, I think most of us knew about that well before 2013... I mean, who ever thought there was any profit model for facebook apart from leveraging their data set to profile users? Selling ads was the "nice" way they were going to use that, but this was widely discussed long before facebook ever existed. I no longer have a copy of the book, but as one example I think David Brin hit on this in his book "The Transparent Society", in 1998.

My kid has officially filed for his legal name and gender change. I was planning on waiting until the official paperwork came back to tell the world, but he couldn't contain his excitement and posted it on Facebook. Now I get to spend my day dealing with irate text messages from my wackadoodle family. Happy happy, joy joy!

That should be fun. Cycle through a series of esoteric to mundane college football related memes to throw the loop back at them.

Oooh, better yet ... create a thread to farm the forum for responses!

I was sent a document that needs to be cleaned up and apparently we do not have an established ICD template. Trying to find one online is proving difficult as well, so if anyone knows where to get one for endpoints and such?

12 incidents yesterday. Poggers. No time for games this weekend, though I do have DnD tonight so hopefully no calls during that. TT__TT

Just wanted to say that I saw "12 incidents yesterday. Preggers...." and damn near choked on my sandwich.
