my body is feeling so bad this morning. tention in my joints, and a general sense of fatigue. today is going to be long and i already don't like it.

go to bed on time, and wake up really early. ugh, feels like i cannot win with this.

seeing other people struggle with parsing swift's syntax just as much as i continue to do makes me feel validated in not continuing down that road.

thinking about tattoos and piercings again; i need to go get my ears done (again); and i'd like a large tatto this time, either on my arm/shoulder or my back. back for sure, but i need to work out what i would like and that could take a while.

i'm so tired. i mean, i shouldn't be awake this late to begin with, but still, i'm really tired.

something to muse on: i remain unconvinced that the products and features delivered to apple's third party developers each year are actually making a dent in how we produce software as a collective. i don't think we are getting better at it, just more bespoke.

i'm simultaneously proud of the things my friends have built at apple, annoyed at feature scope of products at impact my job, and totally disgusted with the puritanical enforcement of apple platforms. luckily i don't need to actively participate in events anymore to stay current.

fuck sometimes you just cannot win with people. like, sometimes a conclusion is so wildly incoherent that i just have to stop and wonder how you thought that was something i'd actually ask, so it comes across as degrading. so while i'm willing to cut breaks, sometimes you get cut

i'm also cringing a little at the reuse of β€œuniversal binaries for mac" now meaning "arm+intel" executables and not "ppc+intel" ones. like, finding historical and legacy documentation is going to be so hard now.

lmao, oh goddess, so we have finally given up on getting developers to understand code signing so we are just gonna manage it for you in the cloud? this is gonna be a nightmare for so many people and i really don't know if i can write another migration guide like last time.

like, there are so few
people that understand the proper and intended way to manage dev accounts, let alone teams of them, that the level of integration seems more of a hurdle than a boon. which, is sad, because it isn't terribly
complex, but still, low hanging fruit and such.

i cannot say i'm surprised by apple providing ci services but honestly, i'm trying to understand the overlap between small dev teams that would find this viable and people with enough understanding of apple developer account management to operate it and i'm coming up blank.
