“I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo. “So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.” ― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

It is good to be home. I am appreciating it even more as I will be on the road again in a few days.

Ah, the Mighty God of Crappy Air Travel does not disappoint.
Are evening flights ever on time?

Don't know how I feel going from here to Milton Keynes... 😅

For some unknown reason, this typical Italian dessert is called "English soup" (zuppa inglese). It is most definitely not English, nor soup.
It is sponge cake with fresh custard and a dash of cherry liquor.

The first image from the James Webb Space Telescope (#JWST). From NASA,

"This slice of the vast universe covers a patch of sky approximately the size of a grain of sand held at arm’s length by someone on the ground."

In that little speck, I don’t know, maybe a thousand galaxies, each with perhaps 100,000,000,000 stars, and all that in a patch of sky too small to even pay attention to.

My good friend @rpginabox is launching an IndieGoGo campaign to fund the ongoing solo development of his #GameDev engine. He's been working on it for years, and it already includes plenty of cool features.

You can use it to make all kinds of voxel-based games with a retro vibe. It's meant to be easy to use, suitable for kids and non-programmers. It offers visual tools, though you can also use the dedicated script language for advanced stuff. And it's made with #Godot.

Some mean insect stung my arm, but I am glad I got myself to go out anyway.

Offer for all those frustrated with open source or shy and need problems fixed or features added 

Hey, so if you want to use open source but find its problems too much, have errors or need certain features a project doesn't have but others whether than be closed or open source do please feel free to reach out to me and I'll go find a way to submit an issue or issues for you. Because open source is only good if we all work together and add or fix things others need or have problems with, not if we only selfishly only get our own problems fixed or get features only we want to see added.

I am reading a book that is mostly bad, but it just defined long commutes as a time most people spend in a "chronic state of apathy" and, well, it did get this point right.

Morning run! There is a light drizzle and the sky looks pretty.
