Job hunting so I get to come up with new reverse-interview questions. My favorite new one that I’ll be using going forward: “tell me about a time your company made a principled choice not to build something that would have been profitable.”
THREATS DETECTED ON YOUR COMPUTER:
* "Yer lookin at me? Yer wanna piece of me? Yeah tough guy, just you click. Just you click once."
* "Hot singles near you want to read your DRAM"
* "My client (the party of the first part) has retained me to notify you that it really would not be advisable to initiate that connection to my database. However the choice must remain yours. Etc, Apache & Sons"
* MONGODB WANT SMASH YOU. YOU WANT BE SMASH BY MONGODB?
* "Wheee! Hee hee! Debug me if you can! Whoo!
KateClanchy1 on Birbsite is a teacher judging a poetry competition. Some of her kids appear to know what they are doing, to say the least. Freya is 13 and apparently prolific and this is the best poem I've read for a long while:
I remember that folk duo
of course Holly Gogrimly went on to become a big name and Fubris Galoshniak fell into obscurity
sorry, channeling wrong reality there, it sounds like a good punk Christmas band name
It's absolute folly. And hubris. It's fubris.
if its from Canada
and it's all cybered up
certainly New Wave
if it's German and screams
about gods and machines
that's not New Wave
that's just Kraftwerk
hard to tell the difference really
if it's obsessed with fashion scenes
British New Wave
if it's aliens in space
with a smile on their face
when a punk hits a prog
like a robot's loose cog
that's a New Wave
when it whistles and blips
and the song's about microchips
when a white guy can't dance
with an unplugged keytar
might be New Wave
it's about nuclear doom
in a computer room
def'nly New Wave
we're ninety minutes in
and we're still just on Track One
ten discs to this album
could be the human race is run
the rusty wire that holds the cork
that keeps the anger in
gives way - and suddenly
there's prog again

Just saw a cross-stitch that said "Warning: this is proof I have the patience to stab something 1000 times."
Funnily enough when I get a lot of new followers I get much quieter 😩
