Retweeted by DizzyD @Bensign It is the crappiest feeling ever. Never, ever again.Thread: @llimllib Thank you! That's a bummer, though. :/Is anyone out there using golang 1.11 modules + vscode and finding that autocomplete doesn't work reliably anymore? @estellevw Personally, I’d go for middle even so. That leg room is so very nice over a long flight.
@seancribbs @elizabethcribbs Congrats - nice work! :) @Pahimar Never again. One coffee per day. Ever. @jmissig So accurate. That’s exactly how I felt. @monadic @IamStan It’s not even close to 5. But I did drink gin to offset the coffee.I’m never drinking coffee again. @ashleymcnamara Please let us know where you’re registered.Drank too much coffee. Extremely chatty and vibrating. Hate this feeling. Can’t hold a thought, what! @kwuchu That is super cool.
