Psst… Want some crack sauce?

This is what really fuels us at Matterport.

(Delicious sweet, but spicy sauce as part of Vietnamese-themed lunch menu by Patrick, our trusty “company chef” (totally feel weird saying that, but there’s not really a better way to describe him) from Andro’s Rostilj.)

LEGO Gay Marriage

Minifigures out in the open are always at risk for being “manipulated” or “posed”. In addition to silly notes, found The Joker and Two-Face bond in holy matrimony with their trusty cheerleader by their side and none other than the Dark Knight (Batman) presiding over the auspicious ceremony. (photo #1)

Shortly thereafter, we had to sort of play musical desks as we scooch to make room for new hires. The Joker and Two-Face happen to fall over like this during the move (photo #2)– sheesh, they can’t wait to consummate!

UPS: Sorry We Missed You; ME: Really? Are you though?

Dammit! Been eagerly waiting for a package for 2 WHOLE WEEKS aka FOREVER (well, at least after the introduction of Amazon Prime). Didn’t go out until almost 9pm and was only gone for about 20 MINUTES, but still managed to:

  1. miss the UPS guy,
  2. miss him the ONE TIME somebody actually needed to sign for the package.

And I almost always prefer UPS because, unlike USPS (or at least my mailman), UPS actually attempts to deliver packages to my door/directly to me before/rather than always just leaving it at the apartment office if it doesn’t fit in my tiny mailbox (i.e., everything). And of course, the office is only open during most people’s work hours (albeit 7 days/week) and on the other side of the very large apartment complex.

Okay, sorry, out of my system. SMH, first world problems. Get over yourself, me.

Things I’ll Forget To Remember

Caught the flu and worked from home for most of the week to take it easy/get better/recover (obviously), but also, as I was repeatedly told, to keep my cooties at home/to myself (surprisingly, nobody wanted to play Ookie Mouth).

Returned to the office to find above coworker hijinks. (The notepad/keyboard pad itself is mine and I do actually use it to help keep track of stuff.)

Ha ha, I missed you guys too.

It’s Official: Come Back With A Warrant!

Victory in California! Gov. Brown Signs CalECPA, Requiring Police to Get a Warrant Before Accessing Your Data

Excellent. Now this sticker actually has some bite behind it.

(Get your own stickers (among other stuff) and/or just donate some cold hard cash to show your support for the EFF and defending your rights in the digital world!)

LEGO Mania

One of the things I really like about my new job: plenty of LEGO enthusiasts AND appreciation of my minifigures arranged according to their role-playing game character alignment!

(I know, how geeky can you get?! Well, we ARE engineers– various different types too, including hardware, computer vision, Unity/Oculus, mobile app, WebGL, and Web full stack and Web back end developers– and LEGO brings us all together 😀 )

And now, the latest addition: LEGO Pencil Holder!

tumblr: “Mr. Robot” (2015) on “Hackers”…

“Mr. Robot” (2015) on “Hackers” (1995)

In season 1, episode 4 of the new TV series “Mr. Robot” (USA), entitled “eps1.3_da3m0ns.mp4”*, two members of fsociety comment on the above scene from 1995’s “Hackers”, everybody’s favorite horribly inaccurate hacker movie:

ROMERO
Hollywood hacker bullshit. I been in this game 27 years. Not once have I ever come across an animated singing virus.

MOBLEY
I have yet to fly through a Tron City directory structure.

ROMERO
I bet you right now some writer’s working hard on a TV show that’ll mess up this generation’s idea of hacker culture.

*Note: the episode title list is zero-based! 😉
