This video seems to depict a Tesla attempting to drive directly at a barrier after a software update to the autopilot software.

I can't vouch for the veracity of claims in the thread, but I can vouch for the fact that I am so thankful that the software I write doesn't kill people if something goes wrong with it. That's a kind of anxiety I just couldn't live with.

Book Review: Fire Season — Field Notes from a Wilderness Lookout

Cover of the book Fire Season

Post Reformat Update

It turns out my laptop was in bad shape before I recently reformatted the drive and reinstalled Mojave on it.

Not only is it much snappier (technical term), I'm getting nearly 2x the battery life (4-5 hours vs 2.5-3 before).

I have to say, I like this thing a lot more now!
