Apparently the Joker may be dead? #batwoman
She rolled onto her back, the ring on her collar chiming that special way that made her eyes go soft. Some of the best engineering I've ever done, and I've enchanted flight-hardware for satellites. "Welcome back."
Her "Mmm" was muzzy, but she rolled towards me, throwing an arm across my hips as I sat up in bed. "Person," she said.
My eyes grew soft as I lifted her hair free of tangle. I was her Person. A gift I would be a lifetime paying back.
Except this year April Fools has been called of on account of no one having bandwidth for this foolishness during a pandemic. Which makes TDoV 2020 the first one I have any interest in.
The Day I Cracked Eggs.
2016, DevOpsDay Minneapolis. I was speaking on a stage in front of 750 people. I *know* I cracked at least one egg doing that, and know of two others who drew the confidence they needed to take another step. #tdov
That was a beautiful breath-catch by #batwoman there with Sophie.
Oh, that episode with Eliot and Alice was made of everything. #magicians

So.... They totally did the child recruitment by the powerful story with Jin. #blacklightning
I'm 5 minutes into the first post-Crisis #Arrow and I am here for everything. I hope this keeps up.
#supergirl B season spoilers
So, Lex is GodKing, and the only one to stand between all right thinking people and Leviathan.
I was hoping I could do to Lex what I did to Diaz for the last half of his season: fast-forward through his scenes. May not be able to get away with that; not enough B-plot yet. Grr.
#supergirl Ugh, BossLex.
Short-haired Laurel2 is has developed into an awesome character I need to see more of. #Arrow
"Weatherbug" was the way of the future: an app that polled an API every N minutes to get updates. We kind of knew that, but thought they were terribly irresponsible to build an app that way.
A hundred apps on your phone do that every minute now.
I am also "a 1.4 Mbit internet pipe was good enough for 3000 employees" years old.
We were able to get away with that because SaaS simply didn't exist back then, and everyone knew that video was too expensive for online.
For work, the internet was for email. research, and fucking around. When 'weatherbug' arrived, a systray tool that allowed easy lookup of weather, it was an appreciable hit to our internet usage.
"Last year, we discovered during testing that about 99% of notification prompts go unaccepted, with 48% being actively denied by the user."
aye, not surprised at all

I have to wonder if there is a Pentagon rule about Presidential Use of Force options.
1. Obvious atrocity.
2. Geopolitical nightmare.
3. Sneaky atrocity
4. Rules-lawyered AUMF strike.
5. Weak sauce token strike.
6. Ticky-box for 'do something'.
Clearly toddler-in-chief didn't go for 3 or 4 like he was supposed to.

But... if that waits until *after* Trump is an ex-President (which he will do anything at all to delay), that's where McConnell gets to bang the war-drum against Democrats and their weak on defense stance.
No matter how you look at it, sending assassin-squads after the Trump family will be bad for American democracy.
us pol, iran
There are some that think that this will evolve into assassin-squads going after the Trump family. This would make for a nasty October Surprise for the US general election, should the timing work out that way.
Alternately, we could end up with a Trump family killing in the time between the election results (wherein Trump looses) and the new President is sworn in. Something like that would be VERY high risk for the republic.
I might have my facts wrong, but taking out a high ranking military officer of a sovereign country with whom we've had diplomatic relations (as opposed to the officers of a non nation-state) is the kind of act-of-war the framers of our constitution had in mind when they delegated the power to declare war TO CONGRESS.
Yes, I know the definition of 'war' has changed in the last 2.5 centuries.This is a much clearer constitutional case for impeachment than obstruction of justice.
