It's even worse than it appears.
Today's song: Father and son.#
What if the little green men in Portland are Russian?#
If you've been asleep your whole life, the last thing you want to do is wake up. I think there's a lot of that in our world right now. #
What if Sinclair Broadcast Group is owned by a Russian oligarch?#
Once Trump was acquitted in impeachment that meant the Constitution was no longer in force in re this president at least.#
  • Here's a picture of Pete Alonso in the bottom of the 8th in today's Mets game. Note the fake fans behind the backstop. Cute, but why not make it a green screen so they can play with video effects. #
  • Unless the "fans" are there to help the pitcher feel comfortable?#
  • Alonso at bat in today's game in Flushing. #
  • I have an app called Server Monitor that does something simple but important. It pings each of the apps I have running once a minute to see if they're still alive. If not, SM sends me an email. I bet everyone who writes server apps has this kind of utility. #
  • I'd like something like this for my friends. A ping goes out to each, if someone doesn't respond, I get an email. #
  • In the age of The Trump Plague, I worry about my friends. I figure it's just a matter of time...#

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
