Skudd's Grumps

Spotify is playing too much Silverchair in this radio feed.

Nobody else really uses GrumpLog.

Obligatory 8am Grump

I can't seem to figure out how to register an iTunes account for the baby, even by fudging the birth year. It keeps telling me he's not old enough. Does Siri (or whatever cognitive entity Apple has behind the scenes) know that I'm falsifying information?

Robodialers. That's the third one today. On the same phone. The same one that's on the National Do Not Call Registry.

Back to the grind.

I just feel really grumpy.

CI isn't useful if nobody monitors it.

People who don't attend meetings for high priority things. At least it means the meeting is short and focused though.

Someone was parked in my assigned space this morning.

The mouse for my Macbook went dead, so while it's charging I have to use a crappy HP mouse. Why couldn't Apple design the Smart Mouse in a way that it could be used while it was plugged in and charging?

I think my smelling cigarette smoke might be all in my head. Sorry to all the smokers out there. You should still quit smoking though.

The reckless driver who was weaving in and out of traffic and taking a selfie every 30 seconds.

I put too much water in my oatmeal.

Cleaning in progress - Do not enter.

Scripts that don't scale.

People referring to an API method as an API.



This holtier monitor.

I was so not awake this morning that I poured coffee creamer on my cereal instead of milk.

TJ is quite fussy and won't go to sleep. I tried rocking him to sleep and he kept nodding off, but as soon as I got up to put him in his bed, he started wailing again.

Flaky internet.

Using device names instead of UUIDs or labels in /etc/fstab

Hard drive failures.

It's entirely too cold in this office.

TJ is fussy and doesn't seem to want to be happy with anything.

The mountain of old CDs and DVDs containing random crap that I have collected over the last 10-15 years.

Holiday shoppers.
