And for added fun, the un-pinned tab of Google Calendar thought it was 2pm, Wednesday, upon being reopened. That'll certainly get reminders wrong...

The top two reasons my laptop fans spin up are 1) the modern web and 2) compiling software.

In my book, any day where 2) is more common than 1) is a good day.

@codesections Oh yes, when 2) happens I'm usually not asking why, make -sj$(nproc) is intended to heat things up briefly :)

@trini @codesections 3) you're trying to use a modern development environment for something, which implies just a whole smoking pile of VMs / containers / orchestration tooling doing violent things to VMs and containers.
