I first read this book when I was 18, about a year after it came out. At the time it was both scary and fascinating, richly detailed with the minutiae of war. Now 51 I just read it again to see how it has held up since then. The details of war are still thereContinue reading “Red Storm Rising – A Review”
Wow. One for the ages. The women’s 4x400m relay was something truly special and tingle-inducing (yep, I said tingle-inducing) to watch. The US paired up 4 medal-holders, 2 gold, one silver, and one bronze. One of the gold and the silver had just taken the 1 and 2 spots in the women’s 400m hurdle raceContinue reading “The Olympics – Women’s 4x400m Relay Final”

Ever feel like you keep getting into conversations you don’t want to be dragged into? Yea me too. Just did a tweetdelete bomb and going to try harder next time.
I’ve been having some odd conversations on Twitter around a story that @DHH tweeted and frankly they’re so obnoxious that I had to take the time to write something longer-form. Here is the story. Long story short: App author writes a client to play Go games via OGS App author gets a rejection from AppleContinue reading “Yes let’s blame the victim…”
So the big social media news of the day was Chrissy Teigen quitting Twitter after being on the platform for over a decade and gaining 13 million followers. Of course because she was an outspoken woman of color she was trolled, berated, and abused (anyone remember Pizzagate?) by many on her time on the platformContinue reading “Chrissy Teigen quits Twitter or why you should delete your tweets”
Yeah I know, the title of this post is obvious, or it should be. The thing is, when you see someone who is really good at something they make it look easy, and the hours and years of training they went through never enter your mind.
