Yup. Still here.

No, folks, there’s nothing wrong with your “feed” or subscription. I simply haven’t posted anything new in  a while.

I’m still here, and I’m still keeping my eye on the developments. It’s just that .. well.. life gets weird, occasionally.
Ya’ know?

And this is just a quick note to let you know those things, and to tell you to keep your eyes open for more articles in the future. But don’t expect any soon — as all I’ve seen lately is tech decision makers being beyond moronic (thinking they have to buy games, develop more games, and acquire the rights to Looney Tunes to cast as the characters in games (Google “Looney Tunes Dash”, if you didn’t catch that last reference).

And there’s been no progress on the security, or privacy fronts, but fear not, better methods to show you unwanted advertisements are Priority 1. (And there’s a new iPhone!!! YAY!!!)
Fflluurrtt…
(Sorry.. but I remember when tech was called “business machines” [as in IBM].)
So I have to let my bile settle a bit.

And along those lines, I looked for a diversion and discovered that Netflix acquired the last season of a show a few people told me they loved, but as I don’t watch TV any more, had never seen, called HIMYM, and marathon-watched all 9 seasons.
(Those of you with a sappy, romantic, emotional side probably shouldn’t watch it.. )

There was one “sketch” in it that really made me smile.. Here it is:

I’d forgotten that song..

And! To be fair, here’s a poll:

Today’s quote:But then there are magical, beautiful things in the world. There’s incredible acts of kindness and bravery, and in the most unlikely places, and it gives you hope.” ~ Dave Matthews
