Fundraising item on display at work (🤬)
Saw a fundraiser for “American Heritage Girls” at work. Figured it was a white nationalist org from the name. Wikipedia kind of confirms that. Right-wing reaction to Girl Scouts, with a freshly created Trails Life Boys beside them. Because why should kids learn to be tolerant of fellow gay and transgender kids outside of the classroom.
Too bad there’s not a work appropriate way to call out bigotry where I see it, because that would get real GSA ban
Coming soon to theaters:
Detective Pikachu 2: Barrister Pikachu
Look at the cute London exclusive Pikachus in their suits and bowlers and clearly practicing law!
Looking up answers to VB6 things just makes me feel dumber by proxy. A 2004 commenter referred to the 18th century English word “asynchronous” as “clever Microsoft jargon” as if this word was amazingly confusing and invented on the spot for just this one use case. ☠️
This graveyard is haunted by idiots.
The further we get past the EOL for Windows XP, the more insufferable building and debugging VB6 gets. “Just have it launch the new app” they asked naively. Sure, but the new app doesn’t run in an XP virtual machine because Chromium (rightfully!) stopped supporting XP, so build it and pray it works, I guess? Even more Rube Goldberg machine to deliver EXEs from the VM to the main machine for testing?
This so much fun~ 👻 #SpookySeason

AT&T is bad at streaming
I love it when The CW app just gets confused and loops the same section of the show over and over including the ads and you have to fast forward to the next section but then it forces the same ads again.
I miss when The CW would cross post to Hulu so much.
Punchline: Can’t wait for all those new bugs when HBO Max launches. There’s no way AT&T won’t fail. 🤣 I won’t pay for it, but look forward to reading the horror stories.
