Pinned toot

I'm part owner and roaster at a little coffee company in Wisconsin. Author of Typica, a popular free program used to capture and work with coffee roasting production records that's used at roasting companies all over the world. Volunteer on the Roasters Guild education committee. Available for paid coffee consulting, training, open source software development. Living with a cat who broke into my house and decided to stay. Likes: cute, travel, food. Dislikes: blinking lights.

Once I ordered a bunch of a cheap ICs for a project and instead of getting what I ordered they sent that many USB cables (the warehouse had them stocked in the wrong place and I guess the pickers aren't given enough time to notice that). The cables were more expensive than what I ordered, but not worth enough to bother with sending a call tag so I still have a whole bunch of mostly unused legacy full size USB cables to pull out if someone loses their old scanner or printer cable I guess.

Bad copy/paste job or a prediction of the US becoming a British colony?

Fun fact: Klee's mom wrote the Teyvat Travel Guide. That explains a lot.

It sounds like the cat had an exciting day while I was at work today.

stuff that ought to be on American money:

Bison, because they're cool and look stately as fuck
The Grand Canyon: Because come on. It's the goddamn grand canyon.
John Brown.
The Virginia Opossum: :yell:
The Mona Ground Iguana: To give Puerto Rico some love
Starfleet Headquarters: Just to give us something to shoot for

TFW you realize your connection to a local server that you know is working just fine was failing because you consistently typo'd the wrong IP address.

Today looks like it'll be my biggest day for outgoing shipments in quite some time. I needed to go out and buy more shipping labels.

It's my birthday. I hope someone gives me socks. I've been holding off on buying new socks because I don't want to shop.

Got confirmation that my mother is good with everybody staying away from her this Thanksgiving. She will also have Thanksgiving dinner with a cat.

Writing ad copy is hard. I have a larger than expected size to work with and I'm not used to such low information density.

Plus now I get the sense that there are more people using 12 cup or 4 cup brewers (where a cup is obviously 5 fluid ounces because USA, USA). 10 cup is still common, but it's no longer as ubiquitous as it once was.

We used to do packs that were exactly enough for a 10 cup pot of coffee (rip open bag, dump it in your filter, flip the power switch, done), but the packaging ended up getting so expensive that I couldn't justify charging as much as I'd have to for that. (Looks at price per pound of coffee in K cups, maybe people wouldn't care after all)

Quarter pound packages of ground coffee are starting to go out for sale today. We don't do that most of the year and we're not doing all the coffees in that packaging format, but this time of year a limited selection is good to have for things like gift packs. Ground in advance because it would be too obnoxious to have to open/grind/re-seal a bunch of bags that barely fit the shop grinder.

The cat is trying out some new positions for sitting on me.

Got the platinum trophy in Deemo Reborn. I thought I needed one more All Charming for that, but I guess not.
