Portland, I am in you
Time for @Cubs baseball in October. What a time to be alive.
The @Cubs won 103 games this season. Bananas.
@changelog I like your show a lot. But I wish you wouldn’t play the outro music over the guests closing words. It’s hard to hear them.
@othiym23 Gotcha. 👍 The bit in your bio is …ambiguous. 😉
@othiym23 You’re “down with using ‘kyriarchy’ instead of ‘patriarchy’”, not “down with actual kyriarchy”?
@othiym23 What does “down with the kyriarchy” mean?
I’m happy for @coketweet that her second book has been published and is shipping out to readers. Congrats!
I want to write site specific user.css files. How do I do that? #lazyweb
This is the 25 person roster that I would take to the post season if I was making that decision for the Chicago Cubs
- Jake Arrieta
- Jon Lester
- Kyle Hendricks
- Jason Hammel
- Trevor Cahill
- Justin Grimm
- John Lackey
- Travis Wood
- Carl Edwards Jr.
- Pedro Strop
- Hector Rondon
- Aroldis Chapman
- Willson Contreras
- Miguel Montero
- David Ross
- Javier Baez
- Kris Bryant
- Anthony Rizzo
- Addison Russell
- Ben Zobrist
- Chris Coghlan
- Dexter Fowler
- Jason Heyward
- Jorge Soler
- Matt Szczur
Pitching and Catching
Miguel Montero would catch Jake Arrieta's starts. David Ross would catch Jon Lester. Wilson Conteras would catch Kyle Hendricks and Jason Hammel and he'd sub in for Ross and Montero as necessary.
Pedro Strop, Hector Rondon, and Aroldis Chapman would pitch the 7th, 8th and 9th innings respectively unless a starter is throwing a no-hitter.
Middle relievers would clean up when someone gets in a jam. Duh.
Anthony Rizzo at first base. Addison Russell at shortstop. Kris Bryant at third base. I currently like Ben Zobrist starting at second. Javier Baez subbing in at second, third or outfield as needed. He's also great for pinch hitting and running.
Dexter Fowler in centerfield. Jason Heyward in right field. Chris Coghlan and Jorge Soler as starting left fielders (depending on how each is hitting at the time). Matt Szczur and the other non-starter as left field subs and pinch hitters.
Of course, when to make those substitutions, pinch hitters/runners and pitching changes is like 80% of the job. I like the way Joe Maddon manages this team. He sure is fun to watch!
If Trump wins it's because liberals have been too focused on pointing individual lies instead of pointing out that he’s a fucking fascist.
This millennial next to me at a coffee shop watching an Instagram video on loop with volume way up must 65 years old. Millennials!
Long read, but worth it.
The history of the US (CIA specifically) involvement in Arabia since WWII.
Do I know any French speakers that can read a French Wikipedia page and tell me something about?

@bauersit You’ll need to follow me or turn on open DMs for me to DM you. ;)
Imagine all of the suddenly unemployed tech workers if a state level actor took down the whole internet.
I’ll see y’all at @githubuniverse tomorrow (Thursday)!
Super stoked that GitHub Projects is released so I can use it again. 😁

@jkottke Your RSS icon is still blue style. (Yes, I still use an RSS reader out here in the cold.)
@tomcoates We’re on 16th and could hear it all but not see what is happening.
Who do I know that works at Facebook or know someone that works at Facebook? I need a favor.
I’m not going to @xoxo this year and really bummed about it. Have fun. Wish I was there.
