Trying to use the Microsoft Store with a work account and it's a dumpster fire.

Takes me back to the good old days of point-by-point rebuttals on internet newsgroups and even CompuServe. Did I say good? Maybe that’s not the word I meant to use... *shiver*

This was amazing! Spend that much time looking at the actual problem and you would have solved it already!

The pain means you still feel, you still care, and in a weird perverted way you’re still having fun.

When I hear men worshipping guns and talking about how there’s nothing that will stop them from defending their family, my mind goes to Naaman in the Bible. Do you remember Naaman? He was a great military leader, and he also had leprosy. 1/

The notion of criminal acts or responsibility is just a weapon to these people. They don't care about the morality or ethics involved. You're guilty of something *because* you're on the wrong side, and innocent if you're not.

All of my money is managed by computers and all finance is electronic and I'm fine with that but I do not want my vote done on anything but paper and I'm still pondering why I feel so differently about those two quite important things.

It's like that line in Defending Your Life, when he says part of being a good swimmer is being able to get past the patio furniture. Except in this case the patio looks like an IKEA after an earthquake.

In completely unrelated news, I'm frustrated and surly.

The problem with trying to contribute to an OSS JavaScript project is that, essentially, you either walk in knowing everything, or you know nothing. You might know the code, but misc build errors, package incompatibilities, and tooling esoterica can stop you dead in your tracks.

Blog post is good, but I think if you did have the ability to post on MS docs that would be fine - lots of material goes there that is later refined for stuff like details and grammar. Every article has to start somewhere. No reason to hide until it’s perfect.

So you could say we're minimizing both functionality and time because the two are tied together. Minimizing scope?

We often call this "happy path", meaning the basic functionality to get the job done in the most typical situation. The idea is to let the customer see if this we are on the right path -- and if they still think that IS the right path -- as quickly as we can.
