Musings

  • The minimum purchase at the work cafeteria is five dollars.  Since my coffee was less than that, I let the nice lady at the checkout talk me into some cookies and a Coke.
    • I’ll be honest, if she’d said I needed to do an arduous side quest to get my coffee this morning, I’d have suited up and grabbed my axe.
  • One of the good things about being away from home is how quiet it is in the hotel room.
    • The main distraction in the hotel room is how quiet it is.
  • I know that aviation is a gift, and that my ancestors would have given anything to be able to go from Kentucky to New York in a few hours, but by the time we landed in White Plains, I was ready to walk home.
  • It occurs to me that most modern programming / scripting languages began when someone flounced out of a C/C++ forum in the early 1990’s.
    • “Fine!  You don’t want to use my new way for handling exceptions and not require a semi-colon at the end of each line?  I’ll write my own language!  I’ll show you!”
  • As I was binge watching “Altered Carbon” over the past couple of nights, I realized that I’d played that Shadowrun campaign when I was 19.
    • Not that the program isn’t a great ride, but I kept waiting for the ninja swords to show up.
