It's even worse than it appears.

  • Here she is, my new blue Tesla Model 3.#
  • Drives great. #
  • A bit hard to get in and out of.#
  • Very comfortable to drive.#
  • Quiet.#
  • Wish it had Apple CarPlay.#
  • It's charging now in the garage. #
  • It's as powerful a car as I've ever driven, like my 2007 BMW 535i.#
  • Most of the Tesla people at the Mt Kisco store were assholes, but they finally gave me someone who talked like a New Yorker. Most of the Tesla people have the same smarmy attitude that they're doing you some kind of favor to sell you a hugely expensive car, like at an Apple store. The guy we finally got talked to us like human beings who love computers and are excited to own a new kind of car.#
  • Thanks to Peter Politi for taking the trip with me. #

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! :-)
