Not going to lie, I want a Shure SM7b.

Do I use a microphone for anything except Zoom? Of course not.

Do I wish I did? You bet.

Will that change? Probably not.

Would an SM7b be an utter waste of money? Of course.

Am I going to buy one anyway? (I want to say no. I’m actually really happy with my PodMic. Keeps telling myself that things won’t make me happy.)

Wrote a python script to flash a boot loader using xmodem over serial to a device that can’t handle the xmodem packets split across USB packets (because tiny USB-serial implentation I guess)

Achievement unlocked I guess.

Google: here’s how to install ansible on amazon linux

Me: (gives up)

(You have all now seen most of her emotions. She can also be very sweet and adorable. After she has had dinner.)

Someone is not happy that dinner isn’t going to dispense for another two hours.

Here we have hungrius catus in her natural environment, trying her best to convince us that the magical food dispenser is broken and did not produce the expected second and third breakfasts.
