@Matter - My thoughts too. I picture someone typing the whole first message and then sitting there (maybe for half an hour!) deciding whether to hit Send on it or not - like I do with some emails. Hopefully one of their higher-ups told him to click.

@randynose I'm always glowing. At least that's what I bribe people around here to tell me. :-)

Here's an alert to tell you not to be alerted by the previous alert. I don't blame them but it's still funny. :-) @Matter

Say what you want about Microsoft, but vscode is a darn nice editor. I've got it running on Windows at work, on Mint on my home laptop and on my Chromebook (in XFCE under Crouton). It's sort of what I wanted Atom to be, but it seems so much faster (especially starting up). Kudos to them.

@Matter see why I need the book?:-) You're correct.The book is supposed to be good and covers the modern history of the Middle East as well so hopefully it will help me.

A book I ordered arrived today. I'm trying to understand a part of the world I know very little about.
Sad coincidence that I come home to news reports that it's likely going to turn into a potential shitshow.

They quietly imposed a 3 device limit on their free plan. And since I already pay Google for extra storage, then why not.

@randynose well we've worked together for probably 12. Lol. And still do.

Baked pasta. Did sausage instead of chicken this time. Either way it's very good but surprisingly I think I prefer the chicken.

The hot banana peppers on my pizza are a vegetable. So there's that. πŸ˜‰

@randynose - I've 'powerwashed' mine (think of factory reset) more than a couple of times. Which, on a Chromebook is really no big deal because almost everything I care about is in the cloud anyway.

@randynose that's great! But how will you tell them apart? πŸ˜€

@randynose lol. Ahh the salad days... editing my config.sys and autoexec.bat files to get my games and soundblaster card to work. πŸ˜„
