As I walked, contemplating the mysteries of life, and what to make for supper, it occured to me that the book I always identify as my favourite book, is not written by the author that I identify as my favourite author.

George Orr solves the problem of racism in a 1980 film adaptation of Ursula K. LeGuin's science-fiction classic, "The Lathe of Heaven".

I'd like to think there's a special place in Hell for the person (or persons) who invented "conversation view" in email. After thirty people (just to pick a number) have replied-all to the original message, it's just a bunch of words, devoid of meaning.

The Oxford comma is right, and it's noble, and it's proper. Getting rid of it is not only barbaric, it's also a sign of unforgivable laziness. Convince me that I am wrong.

I'm rapidly coming to the conclusion that I hate all Web browsers.

"I use Linux because I believe it represents the last bastion of user-friendly and user-centric computing on this Earth, and I want to be a part of improving it and helping it to grow. As the major commercial players fall for the lure of mobile devices and let their desktop platforms stagnate or become spyware, it鈥檚 more important than ever that Linux be a credible alternative for busy people who actually have real work to get done" -

You know when you get those LinkedIn messages that suggest you should congratulate your friend and/or colleague on their work anniversary. Am I the only one who wonders whether they consider it something worth celebrating? Maybe they hate their job and you're just rubbing it in.

The next meeting is tomorrow at 7:30 PM.

Maybe "Festivus" has it's origins, not on Seinfeld, but in Peru!

A few minutes ago, I went out for a walk to the corner store with Sally and the kids. It was already dark and on the way home, I decided to test out my Pixel 2's "Night Sight" and the result is nothing short of amazing. Check it out.

You can safely ignore this post. I am just trying to see if I see this post from a distant Federation.

There's a little coffee shop just outside the fourth circle of Hell, where all the drinks have way too much sugar, are way too fatty, and contain too much alcohol. I'll meet you there and we can reminisce. Maybe Almighty God and Satan can join us.

Oh, come on. Somebody had to do it. Might as well be me.

How about Bing Crosby and Jimmy Stewart doing "Baby, it's cold outside"? youtu.be/4pjg2xSwuRQ

That's too bad. I had such a good feeling about those two.

The Linux.Org Website front page was redirected using a hijacked account and DNS change and a defaced NSFW front page shown in its place. The page, as shown in the following article, displays in one screen, the very worst of human nature. securityaffairs.co/wordpress/7

My Amazon.ca package was delivered by Intelcom Express, but to the wrong house. Right house number but wrong street. Apparently, the driver is unaware that any matching house number won't work if it's the wrong street.
