I expected the Cersei thing to go differently, but I loved how it went. No grand showdown with heroes. Just her getting pulled back into reality.
Major pet peeve: whenever people are in a thread about a bug report that's hard to reproduce, people are trying to figure out how to trigger the bug, and someone says "It works when X", the meaning of the word "works" is unclear. Is it that the product works, or the bug reproduction works? I've seen people interpret it different ways, and it takes way too long for people to even realize a miscommunication has happened.

I wonder if it's unusual that I have a strong urge to describe music in colors. I don't directly visually perceive any colors in music. It's more of an overwhelming sense of "if there was a music video with lights synced up to this music, then there are specific sequences of colored lights that would be *correct* to show".
For a lot of music I can't enjoy, my urge is to describe it as "this music forgot to have any colors; it's only black and white".
Just finished solving the first 50 programming problems on https://projecteuler.net/! TypeScript, generators, lodash, and wu.js were excellent tools for it and in general.
Why does anyone ever say "forward slash" instead of "slash"? That's the default type of slash! Anyone that assumes backslash is meant is wrong, and they're being enabled by people who say "forward slash".
Part of this frustration comes from hearing too many people read off URLs in entirely too long ways. It's one thing for them to unnecessarily start with the protocol in the URL, but then "forward slash forward slash" is the double whammy that kills me.
