@MoMartin Oh, wow, you just reminded me of how sad I was when the only local store that carried them closed. Half sours for the win.

Moshe refuses to look at images or cameras or mirrors. I think he might be a fairy.

@iconography And now I have a perverse desire to watch it, because brains are weird like that.


"Using QA tools in development could make debugging unnecessary!"

Yes, if we write perfect software we might never need to fix bugs. In the real world we need to be able to diagnose the problems that occur due to less-than-perfect code, and throwing away debug symbols makes that more difficult.

@matt (For contrast, in 1984 there were 49,764 babies given the name Matthew, declining to 11,611 in 2017.)

@matt It's more that Simon was never common in the US; the first time more than 500 children were given that name in a year was 1984, and it's since been growing in popularity (2015 is the year with the most new Simons, at 1,633.)

@dconley AWS at work, Linode at home (mainly out of inertia, but they've done some work on shifting from their original slow and clunky provisioning model to more modern on-demand offerings so it might be reasonable for your use cases.)

Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is not a perfect movie.

Cassandra Cain is a poorly chosen name for a character who resembles the comic version not at all.

Some of the pacing in the first half could have been snappier.

Apart from that it’s a feminist Guy Ritchie gangster film crossed with Deadpool the movie, and it’s fabulous. Two canonically queer main characters (Harley is blink-and-you’ll-miss-it, but Renee Montoya’s ex-girlfriend appears on screen as an important part of her character arc.) Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s Huntress is adorkable, and could have done with more screen time. The fight scenes are fun, the drama is fun, the empowerment theme is fun, the whole movie is fun.

@leila I saw this and I was like, "Ooh, is that a tarot deck?"

And now I really kind of want a circuit-witch tarot.

@root Because usually the articles are overhyped takes on early results. "Scientists have found a method that could theoretically produce dope futuristic stuff, but it currently costs $500K and has only been tested on three pygmy marmosets." The road from that to an accurate, inexpensive product is long and hard.

(The blood glucose temporary tattoos are a little further along than that, but the phase 1 clinical trial is still in progress: clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NC)
