    Careerchat II

    I'm in IT, not really a developer in the traditional sense but I have some coding background and I use it to script and automate. I like Python a lot because the included libraries already cover tons of stuff that I'm used to having to reinvent the wheel on every time. Text parsing especially Python is really good at.

    What's For Dinner, Take 7

    I made chicken tinga yesterday, and it was good, but today I made quesadillas with some of it and they were GREAT.

    Board Issues 4

    This works, thank you! The first person I looked at didn't show it, I assume because they didn't have any previous display names, but I checked my own and it's there.

    Board Issues 4

    Is there no longer a way to view a member's display name history? I can't find it anymore and it was useful to know who someone was after they changed their display name.

    What's For Dinner, Take 7

    I have Roasted a Beef. What a great dinner that makes. Absolutely could not be easier to prepare, ready in a couple hours.

    Generations - Not a Thing

    I agree and always have that generations aren't a thing, or I guess more accurately, aren't meaningful labels. They are an incredibly crude way to categorize age groups that don't create anything meaningful out of that data.
  8. I've always thought the same. I couldn't believe that name didn't set alarm bells at the time. I think the people involved were probably well-meaning at the time, but it's about one step removed from WWII-era German propaganda.

    Video Games: It's On Like Donkey Kong

    SF isn't exactly known for its thrilling plots. Live or animated will both be terrible.

    U.S. Politics: The Ideas of Mueller

    That's the thing. It doesn't matter. None of it matters. The President is basically immune from conventional criminal prosecution and civil suits. The only thing that matters is if Republicans in Congress want to hold him accountable, and so far they do not. They have already twisted themselves into unbelievable knots to justify everything to date; he was impeachable long, long ago. I honestly don't think Republicans would turn on him if he brought back concentration camps and gas chambers.

    U.S Politics; The Price of Steele

    It's almost impossible to keep up with the firehose of news this week if you are doing anything else at all. What an insane week.

    2018 Reading Self-Challenge

    Thought about posting it this year and decided I couldn't be bothered to maintain it Glad you stepped up. I'll go in with my basic slacker goal of 12 books, one per month. Sometimes I get on a tear and read a lot, other times I get busy with everything else. I'm already a bit ahead of schedule, but we'll see if it lasts. Read so far: 1. The Fifth Season, Jemisin. I should probably have started this earlier but I have not been reading as much spec fic lately. That seems to be changing, since 3 of my 4 books so far are spec fic. This was good and I'd like to read more of it. For some reason I am not going straight through series these days, I'll read one and then come back later for the next. 2. A Wizard of Earthsea, Le Guin. Read in memoriam. I know Le Guin says she doesn't divide her books by audience age and this isn't YA, but... I do and it is. It's fine for YA, nothing novel these days but it's important to remember that this book and others like it set those norms. 3. The Dirty Streets of Heaven, Williams. I think I would have enjoyed this premise more in the hands of a more capable writer. Bad writing, two-dimensional protagonist, bad (and long!) sex scenes. I won't be continuing this series. It's hard to believe this is the same author as the Otherland series. 4. You're Not That Great, Gale. Nonfic, kind of a self-improvement book. Writing was fun, advice is a mixed bag; I agree with a lot of it but I think that living your entire life feeling shitty about yourself is a pretty crummy way to go through it. Goodreads here, please put a note telling me who the request is coming from. I am a thousand times more interested in your book reviews if you write at least a little bit about the book. Star ratings tell me almost nothing and Goodreads reviews are a significant factor for me when deciding whether to read something.

    u.s. politics: abortive cure for labor pains

    Sessions needs to stay for now because if Sessions goes a more Trump-friendly (i.e., corrupt) AG can be appointed who will summarily fire Mueller. Such a candidate would require confirmation, but does anyone really believe the GOP wouldn't rubber-stamp it?
