I found out today that my dad is a shitposter.

He called me this morning to have a look at his computer because it has been acting up lately.
I opened Firefox on his PC and was greeted by pages of a football message board where he was a member.
 His posts consisted of insulting  and trolling people.

I don‘t know how to deal with this, my father was always the prototypical functioning adult.
Is this part of my genes? Will I still be a shitposter in my 60s?

Each person is born with their fate written into their own genetic code... it's unchangeable, immutable... But that's not all there is to life. I finally realized that. I told you before. The reason that I was interested in genes and DNA. Because I wanted to know who I was... where I came from. I thought that if I analyzed my DNA I could find out who I was, who my parents were. And I thought that if I knew that, then I'd know what path I should take in life.

But I was wrong. I didn't find anything. I didn't learn anything. Just like with the Genome Soldiers... you can input all the genetic information, but that doesn't make them into the strongest soldiers. The most we can say about DNA is that it governs a person's potential strengths... potential destiny. You mustn't allow yourself to be chained to fate... to be ruled by your genes. Humans can choose the type of life they want to live.

Snake, whether or not you're in the FoxDie program isn't important. The important thing is that you choose life... And then live!

My allergies are out of control. The bags under my eyes are not only check-in baggage sized, they're also over the weight limit.

Speaking of allergies this hot february made pollen season start waaaay early. My wife has been hit hard.

So we bought an air purifier with a hepa filter which we ran for hours.

In the morning I asked my wife if she slept/felt better, she said not really.

Then later I noticed I didnt remove the plastic packaging from the filters  :doge

Having a modern car after all my old bois is so disconcerting. Like why are all the electronics still going, I took the key out? Auto stop start is too weird and wouldn’t it be hard on a starter? Shits bizarre

I need three HDMI, but my GPU only has one.
I looked online, and all new GPUs all also have one HDMI (and usually 3 DP).
What the fuck Nvidia, calm down with this fucking display port, everybody's still using HDMI, i need them!

Funny cause my first car is a hybrid with loads of automated functions and I keep thinking things like "how do people drive if the car doesnt automatically turn on the right lights" or "what do you mean there is no camera/sensors?"

Yeah i'm gonna have to go with something like this.
My current GPU actually has 2 DVI, one DP and one HDMI  :'(
I don't want to buy a new GPU right now, so i'm just gonna hope that the new Cintiq 16 is gonna work  with a HDMI to DVI adapter.
The old cintiq was connected directly to as dvi, but this one doesn't have a dvi cable.

My hairstylist fucked up and gave me a close to alt-right haircut :(

Debating between just going to a $5 supercuts and having them chop the top off to match the shorter sides or just wearing a hat for about 2 weeks until the sides grow in more. It's not super short on the sides, but it's shorter than it should be. I generally don't cut the top/bangs much because I'm old and that part of my hair doesn't grow much anymore, only sides/back do. I just told her to clean up the sides and shorten the back, not make me look like a nazi!  :'(

haha, ok. These pics aren't great representation because I used a bunch of pomade to try to push the top as flat as possible so it looks more even across the board. Without pomade I've got a lot of volume in the top and my bangs go down past my eyes but it's like short buzz on the sides and back. And yeah, I gotta clean up my beard a bit.

Not a great week so far.

Finished last week by turning in my contract extension without fighting for improved terms. Honestly, the terms are very good already, but extending a contract without revisiting the terms feels like foolishness.  :-\

I need to move out from my cousins' home, as they're leaving the country and want to have other guests in their remaining time. Absolutely reasonable. So I went in to work late on Monday in order to visit a property management company; I need a private room in a share-house. I've got a couple weeks to land something. When I showed up, they kind of panicked. I wasn't sure why until they wrote me back later in the day. Unfortunately, the property management company didn't realize that I'm 51, and apparently the owners of most share houses don't want anyone older than 39 -- this is a common clause for share houses in Tokyo, for some reason.  :doge

So that made me sad yesterday.  :'(

I had a meeting with our partner studio in California this morning, so I determined to wake up early and come in SO EARLY that it would avoid Tokyo train traffic. But instead of waking up with my alarm at 6AM, I woke up at 4AM, and again at 5AM, and again at 5:40... Arrived at work just before 7AM and waited for the 9AM meeting.   :-\

Turns out there was a power outage at that studio, so they sent everyone home, but no-one sent notification (phone email or slack) so we were on standby after coming in early for no reason. :maf

Add to this, the worst allergy season I've had in my life. I probably need prescription stuff, as the claritin-analog I've been using barely manages to keep it tolerable. Every day is unpleasant.

Co-worker went home sick today so I had to help out with a meeting that lasted all afternoon, which meant that I didn't get the work done that I wanted to finalise today, which means that I won't be able to slack off tomorrow and play video games while I "work" from home.

Also, if she doesn't come in tomorrow, I will have to go in to work to help get some shit done that she was supposed to do today, which means that aside from not being able to slack off at home, I won't be able to get to a meeting that I have scheduled for my side hustle in the afternoon.

Just had the most inane conversation with a coworker.
We were talking about audible and he said that I should check it out since they give you a free trial for 30 days.

I was like: nah I am good, these free trials are a scam preying on people like me who are just too lazy or dumb to cancel.

And he acted like I just said the most outlandish thing in the world as if corperations don‘t account for lazy fucks like me.
people like me are definitely part of the incentive of offering free trials.

:rage

My phone just fucking bricked itself, great. Can't get any of the reboot key combinations to work or anything. God damnit. There was never anything wrong with it and then when something happens it just straight dies? Amazing  ::) Let's see if I can get it fixed, but considering all the shit luck I've had recently I very much doubt it.

In the meantime I can't browse the Bire when and where ever I want and it's already making me cranky  >:(

On Monday, when the first place had me come all the way in to the office for a meeting, and then turned me (politely) aside, I was sad.

The next two dismissive notes arrived, I was depressed.

The next two arrived, and I got angry, and determined to make a Plan B. That's where I am right now, except my allergies have made me stupid.

Stupid and angry?  Shit, I may end up voting for tRump.

Got a loaner phone while mine is being serviced, which will take around two weeks, great. So the phone that I have now is a Huawei (with a cracked screen  :yuck) , we'll see how long it takes for me to get used to this after only ever using Samsung smartphones... To be honest I was expecting to get a dumb phone as a loaner or some super old smartphone so I can't really complain.

Now I'm just dreading how badly the service firm is gonna screw me  :-\ If they decide whatever is wrong with it isn't covered by the warranty I'll flip  :maf

I hate having English be my second language. I mean evidently when I tell my team "Please update the excel sheet on sharepoint, it's the bible" They take it to mean "Please come up with your own excel sheet that has nothing to do with the excel sheet I told you about."

My employer's employers are obsessed with diagramming everything. If anything happens, it necessitates some form of visualization forcing me into a couple hours of PlantUML for something that gets a happy grin and smirk and gets shitbinned. I get that writing summaries , diagramming etc are a part of my job but some part of my brain is screaming out about TPS reports and I wish I could get back to doing more actual analysis ☹️ I miss doing more cool shit.
