I detest when new outfits bring in “policy experts” to talk on topics. Like the cybersecurity policy expert in the NPR story on the Iowa caucus app from last month. Listening to her soundbyte you can tell she doesn’t know a Diffie-Hellman from an elliptic curve. A policy expert knows policy, not the nuts and bolts. They’re the equivalent of “awareness campaigns” in the charitable organization scene.

I noticed the MailChimp logo in the bottom of today’s newsletter for the first time. Has that always been there?

What rolls down stairs
Alone or in pairs

And fits on your back

Why is there a war for file type associations on my Win10 computers? Every fucking day my default apps get changed. PDFs are the worst because Edge, Chrome, and Adobe all battle it out. Images are farcical because it’s just Windows apps what keep stealing the association from each other.

Finished laying new floor in the master suite just in time for the recirc pump on the dishwasher to go out! Do I save $20 and support the secondary market by buying used off eBay? Or do I spend an extra $20 and support the megacorp buying new off Amazon?

Every time I see someone insult @Johncdvorak's recorder playing, I get that much closer to mailing him some bagpipes.

Will you all shut the fuck up and stop tooting about Trump and the impeachment already?! Jesus the goddamned Jew it’s as bad as the M5M up in here with all the focus on Trump. Give it a rest.

‘Tis the season for King Cakes and I approve of every one brought to the break room at work.
