It's even worse than it appears.
Twitter thread: "These days I see twitter as an essential utility. Largely because the API is so good."#

"Use the product for its intended purpose." This is something I say to myself and people I work with, a lot. A steady drumbeat, to stay on track. #
I watched the beginning of President Biden's press conference today. Both VP Harris and the president gave very good talks. Sometimes their cadence is wrong, they speak in typos, and other times (like today) I say YEAH that's right, that's how you do it. #
It would be amazing if all software developers used compatible back-end databases.#

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! :-)
