it's frightening to think how much govt, small biz, etc are dependent on unverified scripts having super user access to computers via microsoft apps

golden age of tv has ended 📺 but reduced costs should lead to less hot garbage like wheel of time. will be interesting to see how this affects potential future seasons of yet to be released blockbusters like house of dragons 🐉 or rings of power 💍

either that just struck our house or the neighbors 🌩

first the netherlands now south korea, external payment providers is coming to ios globally and sooner rather than later 📱💵

Wiehle-Reston opened in 2014 and in the 8 years since has managed just 11 miles, the last spur to IAD. Better late than never I suppose 🚇
