It's even worse than it appears..
Today's song: Her Majesty.#
September 18, ten days from now, is the 20th anniversary of RSS 2.0. I haven't forgotten. I'm going to try to ship something appropriate on that day. #
If you're a developer and interested in making a contribution, consider porting the reallySimple package to another platform. Right now it's only in Node. It makes reading feeds of all flavors easy to just drop into an application. It lives up to its name, it's a simplification of RSS (and Atom and RDF) behind a single JSON interface. So you can put feed reading support into anything without taking on a huge project. Tools are so important.#
I got a big new feature topped off today. Can't say what it is yet, but I think it'll be shipping within a few weeks, or so. Software comes when it's ready, like everything else. 😄#
People aren’t wearing masks, even at the pharmacy, the person who gave me my booster said she didn’t need one because she just got over her second bout with Covid. What? Unreal. Then it came to me, this is normal. It’s why even when the temperature in California is over 100 in lots of places, we're still pumping carbon into the atmosphere. Pakistan is drowning, and Lake Powell is drying up. Business as usual. What was abnormal was the brief period when many made sacrifices to fight Covid. Now we just shrug it off, I guess?#
YouTube TV says they want me back as a subscriber. Awww. I'd love to use it, its user interface is way better than Spectrum but -- the only way to get the Mets and Knicks games is from Spectrum. Let me know when I can watch my teams on YouTube TV and I'll be back right away.#

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! :-)
