1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Do you have all your teaching in one semester? Three sounds like a lot for one semester.

    lol, I went through the same thing.

    I was in NY a couple of weeks ago and I saw a guy walk into the stall and hang paper over the door. He took it off when he was done, apparently it's an indicator.

    It's an indicator that he's an asshole.

    Dog walkers. And people that walk dogs on tracks. Jesus fucking christ.

    I get up early to run. No cars and less people. At least it used to be that way.

    I used to run downtown. I used to be able to get up at 6 and go for an hour long run and not see anybody else but a few runners. Couple waves but most people understand running is not a stop and talk activity.

    Then the city became 'dog friendly.'

    Dog friendly people get up at 5:30 and walk their dogs all over the sidewalks. if you're a runner you know how curious dogs seem to be in you. Not to mention dog people seem to be completely oblivious and jump two feet when you run past them. Or the dog people who decide to meet and talk to each other in the middle of the path you are about to run through.

    OK, I thought, I'll just get up earlier and go to the track. I'll do an intensive sprint workout in 20 minutes and I'll be ready to go earlier in the morning. Win win. Nope.

    Cue the dog walkers that take their dogs to the track. To walk their dogs. On the fucking track! And often because they're on a track in the early morning they see no reason to leash their dog. Till I show up. Then they act surprised to see someone else there in the dark besides themselves. Hello fuckers, that's what this place is for.

    Fuck you all.

    While I don't bother with paper on door, I get really creeped out when people choose to use the "peek through crack" technique instead of "door locked" technique when checking occupancy of the stall.

    Yeah, well the idiots in my office have been using coins or something to turn the locks from the outside to keep them locked to reserve the stalls for themselves. Leaves no choice but to peak through the crack.

    Slightly pushing on the stall door to see if it is locked.

    Yup, or pulling in my case.

    Also, you work with animals.

    I do not use public toilets unless it is absolutely necessary for these very reasons.

    Early in my career a veteran line worker shared the following pearl of wisdom, which has become part of my life philosophy: "Always shit on company time."
