I dont think about math much...I think about physics stuff a bit. I do some programming, fly planes once in a while, play an electric guitar and soon buying an 88 key keyboard. This is my first toot!!!

And let's not guilt people into turning cameras on during remote meetings. As an example, I have the highest pressure sustaining a smooth online meeting, internet problems being number one, if anything, I would do anything to be in-person for these days.

I think I became so obsessed with finishing this PhD, that I ditched doing any other normal things I used to do. A part of me thinks this is unhealthy but we move.... Just saying I will really miss language summit and @pycon in general and maybe SLC this year.

Confident of people to think I know the Y combinator on my fingertips. I have to think for more 15 minutes to remember.

I can't be the only one who notices a typo but continues to send the text because am too lazy to do the correction.

During winter I only need to build/compile pypy on my MacBook to feel warm.

The academy/university can really be annoying, but on many good days the research is very interesting and worthwhile.

Not people making me guilty for not using Python all the time. Why can't someone write some Rust or Racket code in peace?

In a house x, someone just left a bowl of hot soup sitting on top of the wifi router. If I am offline anytime, you can just guess.

Reading PSF board-related legal statements for 2 minutes is harder than finding a bug for 8 hours. Am off to debugging memory leaks.

My secret plot is to go with some family members for shopping at Cosco in Kampala, but eventually am the closest thing to Canada that they know. So, Canada, Am your ambassador this weekend, watch this!!!

Tired: Meetings without an agenda
Wired: "Never attend a meeting that can start without you" .. Kerri Miller

In this zulip space of some University project group, it's only me and the welcome bot that are online.

A professor from UK just reached out and told me, they looked to read my book in some research group and am a little happy this Sunday.🤠

You priotize and reward quantity but complain about low quality and spammy efforts. Pick a side.

Pet peeve: people who call my former university (Makerere university), the Harvard of Uganda, Africa etc I beggoo why can't it just be Makerere!

Me, a new apple user: thinks of throwing my Mac and ipad away
Linux laptop: won't start for some reason today.

For some reason, I was made to know as a newbie pilot, I must have an ipad for software. If any pilot here has experience using only open source and non-apple software, help please!

After my first seminar talk when I came to grad school, someone asked If I went to public school. Thinking about it now, I don't think it was a complement in North America terms. Though Public schools in my country are prestigious than private schools.

I need to attend a master class on "how to make pancakes". People can't let a person live in peace because I can't make pancakes.

A company should invent for me a job title where I only write tests and benchmarks, and GCs. I know only Google, where they have great teams in Germany for the former. Companies have till 2024 to improvise for me. 😜 🤸‍♀️ Suggestions for my title: Garbage Collecting Software Engineer in Test and Benchmarks. CS gurus in naming stuff can fight me now 😉

Its 22 degrees and folks at my house are saying it's very cold for them 🤔 🙆
