remember not to access ANYTHING of Amazon's the next two days.
no amazon music
no amazon prime tv
no whole foods
none of the amazon stores
If you have Amazon Prime, cancel it, just resub afterwards if you want, don't even go for it if you're offered a free month. Unplug Alexa if you have her for any reason, don't impulse buy anything.
Support the workers, don't be a scab.
@jjwolverine no no no
@KelMonstah it's like, Twitter? But more socialist?
srsly http://slyflourish.com/returnofthelazydm/ and the accompanying workbook are fantastic
Teaching myself Autodesk Fusion 360 in the hopes of doing more CNC routing and 3D printing. Pretty fun parametric CAD/CAM program so far, and free for hobbyists.
Lots of great tutorial series from Autodesk, too! This is a good 'un: https://f360ap.autodesk.com/courses/mechanical-assemblies-fundamentals
@jjwolverine guh! I always have that problem when returning to work after an extended time off. "No I was not about to pat your thigh affectionately"
@jjwolverine What I think of whenever I hear an unusual phrase starting with "American"
@werecupine Sounds like it was a good time for a lot of people
@irisjaycomics yeesh, good. I wasn't looking forward to seeing that tired boner joke every time I flew for the next decade
@jjwolverine I like building teams of junior devs: I can break their bad habits and teach them my ways much more easily :3
@jjwolverine We are eerily synced; I've been thinking the same thing lately. I'm never going to be some kind of world-class engineer at this point, but I'm really good at helping people navigate company politics and their careers, and enjoy pushing back on upper management for the good of my people. Thinking about changing jobs made me realize how little technical transfer of knowledge there'd be for me, but I'd be able to step right in as a technical manager.
@werecupine I'll ride it
