Almost done reading the “Peter Principle” (en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_). Pretty interesting and relatable.

"Ah, er, yes.” Martín is trying to break some unfortunate news as gently as possible. “The point of these questions is… for you to write the program yourself, rather than using someone else’s code.”

You shift, surprised. “People haven’t seemed to like that so far.”

Watched "Greyhound" on Apple TV+ tonight. I liked it.
