Woken up by police ringing the doorbell. Nick's car has been a subject of a hit and run. His car got pushed seven feet down the street and onto the curb. Back axle busted, so probably totaled. We did not have collision on it, since the car is rather old. The other driver managed to drive off (someone saw it), but no plates.
Summary: no car for Nick, police are good people, random drivers not so much. Still no car for Nick.
Too exhausted to deal with all this :(
Update: realized that even if insurance deals with anything, this will be a definite time/energy sink in terms of dealing with insurance, then selecting and purchasing a car, plus we'd spend money on a new car, plus the insurance would go up, because it would be a new vehicle that we'd have to cover more extensively. Damn.

The name has been chosen! May I introduce Pixel! (The joke goes: he was a stray Pixel and we are working on making him Pixel perfect.)

Do you want to live near me and hang out all the time? A place in the neighborhood might be renting out soon. Not immediate neighbors, but next street over.

I used to cross post everything to both here and Facebook for a while, and realized today I have stopped doing that. To those of you trying to stay in touch with me here, I am sorry.

Tracks and sessions  - 
 
What are the best tracks/events to go to if I am curious about UX approaches that different products take? Which teams/products prioritize usability and flow? What is being defined as a priority and how do those survive the development process? Who are the main influencers across all the job roles?

We got a dog and we are actively pondering how to name him! Do you want to try influencing our decision? "+1" our current options! (no guarantees are made about any particular name being chosen)
