I had suspected something fishy with my new Apple Magic Touchpad. I checked the polling rate, and it was only 100 Hz. Apple, why? All this month, I thought something was wrong with my fingers. Why are you saving pennies on a $150 product? I know why. You hate your customers.

Programming in C++ can give you interesting insights sometimes. Once I googled std::list, I learned a lot that wasn’t related to C++.

It feels like someone is working really hard to piss me off and make me quit. So… you will have to explicitly fire or layoff me.

Linux Kernel 6.6 was released two days ago. You know what that means? Linux Kernel 6.6.6 is coming soon. I am planning to celebrate the release at the small family gathering with candles.

Long COVID update: Chest pain is gone. I thought it was the main reason why I couldn’t make myself do things. And I feel normal, but still can’t make myself work. Strange, but at least there’s no pain.
