Gillibrand calls on Franken to resign

1 Comment

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) called for Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) to resign in the wake of multiple sexual misconduct allegations against him.

"While Senator Franken is entitled to have the Ethics Committee conclude its review, I believe it would be better for our country if he sent a clear message that any kind of mistreatment of women in our society isn’t acceptable by stepping aside to let someone else serve," Gillibrand said in a Facebook post.

Gillibrand is the first of Franken's fellow Senate Democrats to take that step.

Someday, some big historical event will happen during the DST changeover, and all the tick-tock articles chronicling how it unfolded will have to include a really annoying explanation next to their timelines.

I worked for a company that was naively saving timestamps into a DB in the user's local time, which (of course) varied. No TZ info was kept with it. I rocked myself in a corner.

I was once part of a meeting where a great idea for simplifying the UI of a reservation system was slowly but surely sunk by the dawning realization that there were bizarre time zones that were half an hour or 15 minutes away from other time zones.

In writing software, I've often asked 'Do we have customers in that stupid timezone'? Only one? Screw them. They can deal with this bug for their stupid timezone.

Computers Hat

1 Comment

I needed a hat.

I didn’t want an attention-grabbing design, but I’m not boring enough to wear a blank hat. (And I’m really boring.)

Normal people wear hats displaying the logos of the sports teams or companies or places they care about. But I don’t care about sports, I don’t feel that strongly about New York, and I don’t like most companies enough to be a billboard for them on my head.

So I had to ask myself: What do I really, truly care about that would be appropriate on a hat?

Apple? Sure. But I’ve already gone through two Apple hats.

The internet? Well, we have a love/hate relationship.

What transcends it all?

Bingo.

Just a reminder, one of the standard UNIX printer error messages is "Printer on fire"

I worked on one of those printers. An old Xerox-made print engine fused the toner with a glowing wire. If the paper jammed (which it did a lot) the printer caught fire.

I always wanted a printer with a laser sight, so I could better aim my documents.

A Lebowski reference in the cartoon, and a Beyonce reference in the alt text. Nice work.
