A former coworker once said “if i could shovel shit for a living and get paid the same, I’d do it” and i have been thinking about that ever sense.

I have heard good things about working for the orange home improvement store. Best friend of mine worked there for a number of years and became a department manager. Caveat is I can decidedly say this friend is not a programmer type of person. Anyway if you have questions, I would be glad to ask them on your behalf.

You know how password prompts will tell you "You have your caps lock on"? Maybe we should start using Windows Hello style tech to tell you that someone might be watching you enter your password in the same place.

Three days in a row now, without trying, I've glanced at my phone to check the time at exactly 13:37.

The guy did say he couldn’t get them working. Makes me wonder if there is perhaps an obnoxious procedure to reset to the default password?

I had planned to pull down and rebuild this garden bed this year, but the leftover scraggly bits of silverbeet have spring back to life, burdened with glorious purpose. There are also a couple of really healthy looking garlic shoots in there and I apparently missed some potatoes. I think I'll leave it alone, something's obviously going right.

A hell of a lot of apples fell off the tree into this thing, maybe that's the secret. :awesome:
