Sometimes you have the misfortune to meet an egotistical fool who's convinced they're the smartest person in the room. This article by @mmasnick leaves no doubt in my mind that wherever Elon Musk goes, not only is he not the smartest person in the room, it's likely he's the stupidest person in the room.

@chris Yup. I need my OS and the like to work with me, not be another project I’ll never finish.

Quelle surprise. Microsoft is beginning to sunset the Mac Visual Studio which never actually properly worked for many .net workflows and whose documentation was impressively MORE out of sync with itself than the rest of MSDN. I never actually figured out the voodoo of getting it to behave for .net Core web project deployment... sigh.

This was the front page of The Daily Tar Heel following the active shooter lockdown at UNC. Powerful. We don’t have to live like this.

I’m continually amazed by how terrible every single facet of Microsoft Start’s curation and comment quality. Almost 50% full on clickbait and easily discernible poor quality news sources combined with an atrociously bad commentary and precious little moderation of bad disinfo, spam and other rubbish.

@ronbronson Between that and bundling "a la carte" vehicle subs that in practice aren't really (glares at Subaru)... sigh.

@chris Huh. A friend of mine is the third owner of my series 3 watch.

(Phones... I rarely keep those much longer than 2 years)

@chris Huh. Crazy. I think all of my prior ones are still intact and working.

@chris and the same read only if not paid, though at least Mona’s license is perpetual and not subscription

@chris Hmm… trying it out now. It looks like I can configure it sort of like I want… other than staying scrolled to latest.

@chris I haven’t tried that one yet.

My kingdom for something like Tweetdeck for desktop. Mona got me close, with some quirks.

Tried out the Mona client for Mastodon. Pretty slick, but it’s… an interesting choice to put basic functionality of the network behind a paid tier.

Annnnnnnnnd… after a long wait, have a ratified union contract through 2025.

@davidbisset @ian My current 2y will renew at the current rate before it goes up it looks like; 2y rate is +30/year which could be worse. Last personal increase was in 2019 according to my billing history.

@reedpiernock All I know is in no way does the math math that either collection of music is as old as it is.

Tonight’s concert - This Wild Life, Story of the Year, Mayday Parade, and somehow we all blinked and it’s been twenty years for Yellowcard. (The math works but I hate it)

@cgrymala @mackensen Yeah, the options to the downtown station are limited.

@mackensen I couldn't pass it up. $62 round trip for me and maybe 20 minutes longer (scheduled at least) than driving would be.
