Friendly reminder: Jesus loves you.
Gay or straight. Republican or Democrat. Cis or trans. Black or white. Pro-Windows or Pro-Linux. It doesn't matter. You're His and he loves you just the way you are.
Today I was setting up a #Windows 11 laptop. Plugged in an old HP Laserjet printer via USB for reasons and... it just worked. No popups. No drivers to download. Apparently even a blind, half-lame squirrel can find an acorn once in a while. Count me shocked.
A view from a back road on my way to a client yesterday. I don't know about you, but I love windmills. I also learned yesterday how stupid huge they are. Checked later on and discovered it was a pretty well-composed shot, too. #photography
"What if instead of an application, we had humans do the driving for you?"
You just invited chauffeurs.
"No, I mean like as an on demand thing."
You just invented cabs.

So, high speed rail.
".....why do you hate innovation?"

I'm a self-taught programmer with a bachelor's degree in Music Education. I had no idea I was working on a post-grad-level computer science project. Knock me over with a feather.

Cost Plus Drugs: Mark Cuban's New Company Sells Ultra-Cheap Prescriptions https://www.cnet.com/science/biology/how-mark-cubans-new-drug-company-sells-medications-with-huge-discounts/
Yeah, I know, Mark Cuban. But if you’re having a hard time affording prescriptions, check out his site. The price for some of the meds I looked at was less than the copay for the same meds at our pharmacy.
