@pazzy so sorry. Thinking of you in Nebraska, USA.

Reading a book is essentially staring at the tattooed remains of a tree and hallucinating for several hours.

Least convincing robo call ever:

"Hi! We are from the local television channel for this area! We are excited to offer you" -click-

Quick reminder that there has always been lots of batshit crazy, the Internet just gives you easy access to tons of it. Use with extreme caution.

e.g.: 1970s art book + treasure hunt turned horrid computer game scam:

Real resistance and solidarity is happening in Portland, OR right now.

As the Trump admin is kidnapping children and terrorizing families, we will do EVERYTHING we can to stop this.

Occupation of #ICE detention center in #PDX is happenimg NOW and is ongoing. SHUT. IT DOWN.

If a similar action is not beimg held near you, make it happen.

Portlanders, get tf doen to 4310 SW Macadam Ave if you can. Stat. We have ppl on the ground. We need bodies. We need support


@johny ya, he could even laugh about it, which always blew my mind. I try to live up to the example he set. Here's part of his oral history: jhannah.github.io/jayflaunts/2

@johny In my case, they earned their 2 decades of fear and loathing from me. What they did to me was vicious, terrible.

That said, if my grandfather can forgive his captors (World War II POW), then surely I can let it go and give Microsoft a big hug in 2018 and beyond. I wish them all the best. I've been hearing good things in recent years. :)

@johny uhh... good I suppose? I've been avoiding Microsoft since NT 4.0 destroyed me in 1997 (WAY too many all nighters rebooting servers).

It mostly blows my mind that JS is being used for local apps (offline Office). Last I knew (up till a week ago) C# was the Microsoft jam. Hard to wrap my head around such a high level language being performant for non-trivial fat client apps.

Live long enough and shit changes, yo. :)

"It doesn't interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for – and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing. It doesn't interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool – for love – for your dreams – for the adventure of being alive."

If, like me, you've been ignoring Microsoft for a couple decades, this might blow your mind:

All of Office 365 is (almost finished) being completely rewritten in this little scripting language called . And Skype And Microsoft Teams And @Code And all of @MSEdgeDev Debug Protocol (instead of C++) nbd
