Learned the hard way that await in the main method of a console app is a bad idea. I *thought* it would, you know, wait for the response and continue. Nope, causes it to exit unexpected. Thanks C#.

The correct thing to do is call .Wait() on the asynchronous task.

I definitely prefer Golang over C#.

Been reading Anathem... as I told my wife, I'm on a roller coaster, I don't know where it is going, but I'm having fun and going along with the ride.



Never expected myself to be writing C#, yet here I am doing .NET Core. Still weirds me out.
