Sorry, I call BS. It's not Google tracking your offline purchases, it's your credit card company. You want to avoid your credit card purchases getting into the hands of other people? Use cash (hell, or even Bitcoin).

Wow. Decided to grab an early bus, so I could get a head start on some expense paperwork. My driver ends up accidentally taking the Montlake exit, and couldn't figure out how to get back on the freeway. We were like rats abandoning a sinking ship.

Talk about "Walmart ghetto." They're out of shopping baskets, so I get handed a bucket in which to gather my purchases.

Ahrrrgh! #Amazon sells this RAID-class WD drive, but will only sell you one. Hell, even their "Frequently bought together" suggestion lists the drive and a multi-disk NAS. I could go with Seagate, but I promised myself after enough sub-year drive failures that I'd never buy Seagate again.

I really wish tax preparation software would drop the "When can you expect your refund" verbiage from notification emails when it knows perfectly well that you just wrote the IRS a huge check.

Stable wormholes! Stable wormholes! Stable wormholes!

OK, now that that's out of the way, I'm really interested to see where this goes.

#TheExpanse cliffhanger prediction: Miller's ghost.

What the hell, +Google+​? I can no longer share posts to a "You only" collection? This was my perfect tool to save interesting posts in order to act on them later.

First week on the new job is over, and my brain is full.

Also, my sleep habits over my "between jobs" period were worse than I realized. It seems you need more rest when you're actually working all day. I am beat!

Completely serious here: I honestly can't listen to Trump very long, just because the way he speaks drives me up a wall. That said, I never got the impression that he is explicitly anti-LGBTQ. I'd love to see some clear examples of him saying he would attempt to roll back LGBTQ progress. That's really more the straight Republican platform, and I think we can all agree Trump is anything but a normal Republican.
