But that would ruin my "just casually chillin' in a helicopter, what's up with you" vibe. 🎧🎙️

Agreed. It was a childish and spiteful act on his part. Needlessly expensive for both parties. It also seemed to be preemptive and/or defensive posturing. I could envision this scenario… Boss: "He said I falsified his résumé. But you cannot trust a guy who perjured himself."

⭐ This is a fascinating read. 📝 Written by It is hard to fathom any employer being willing to file criminal charges over a few missing CDs. As I recall, back in the 1990s MSDN materials were almost as common as freebie sample AOL disks.

Possibly helpful: I built this example for a coworker. If you've ever needed a `position: sticky` element that can cross "boundaries" (on desktop) this might work. The magic is the "funky-wide-background" div. It slices across the entire layout.

Sorry, that was just my troll-ish attempt at pretending to misunderstand the use of the word "sanctuary." And thereby @'ing you unnecessarily. But, I'm glad I did. Because that is an awesome story about George Hill. 😁

I dunno about that. I mean, would zoo creatures really feel comfortable in cathedral style buildings? ⛪🕍🕌

Will do. Thanks! 😁 I think the kiddos are good for now, with the browser based tutorials. But if they get into needing NPM and CLI stuff, I will definitely want to ping you with questions.

On the other hand, it is comically tragic. While GOP governors posture themselves to please their increasingly polarized base, and be "yes men" for the would-be king… That political gamesmanship — and to them, it is only a game — incurs the cost of their constituents' lives.

On the one hand, it makes sense. If you base your entire political existence opposing good ideas, just to upset the opposition… Then when/if you find yourself in a position to govern, implementing good ideas makes you seem — somehow, by GOP logic — like you are changing sides.

⭐ This is so unbelievably sad. 🎩 Hat tip to for the link. The GOP — which misspent 8 years nitpicking and obstructing Obama's presidency — has now collectively forgotten how to lead. Trump simply further compounded that by his own inaction.

HP 14" and Lenovo 13". Both 2-in-1 touchscreens. I think that might be a bit over his head. I am trying to avoid the ceremony of tooling setup. But, it is good to know that the hardware itself could (eventually) support a full dev environment. I didn't realize that. Thanks! 👍

UPDATE: The kiddos (8 and 11) are now working through the HTML lessons on According to my 11yr old son… "I want to learn to code. If the pandemic lasts a long time, or if there is another pandemic in the future, then I can have a remote job."

Thanks! 👍 My kiddos are working through the first few lessons now. The 8yr old also wanted to give it a try, after watching his big brother.
