Random musings on whatever subject strikes my fancy that day.

Bonus: Time Back!

When I gave up the NFL a few years ago, I never expected the bonus I got: so much time back!

Watching football meant a minimum of two hours on a Sunday.  Only two and not three or more, because I would DVR the game and not start watching until about an hour after kickoff.  Fast-forwarding through commercials and halftime blah-blah-blah save over an hour from an NFL broadcast.

And that was just early in the season when only one team had my interest.  By the last three or four weeks, with almost every game holding playoff implications, I would be watching up to four games every weekend.  Then once the playoffs began, of course, I could not miss any of those games.  Another 25 to 30 hours.

I was losing the equivalent of two work-weeks every year to watch spousal abusers give one another concussions, and billionaires take payola to propagandize Americans with the specious veneration of the military.

So the decision I had been building up to and finally took in September 2014 holds.  And I don’t see it going back anytime soon.

Hacker ≠ Criminal!

Today’s post is over at Safer Computing, about how — despite the media propaganda to the contrary — “hacker” does not mean “criminal.”

He’s not a criminal, he’s just cold!

 

Spitting

Earthquakes, hurricanes, floods and wildfires.

The planet is spitting us out.  It’s kinda hard to blame it.

Nevermind.  Give some money for Mexico City.

TWC Breach

Kitten Lotto

Three years ago this week, we hit the Kitten Lotto.

Gertrude

Alice.

We went to Lollypop Farm with few expectations.  We want two.  They have to get along.  We might not find anything remotely like that on our first visit.

Uh huh.  All that, right out the window. These two litter-mates were in literally the first enclosure we looked at.  They were curled up together, and when they noticed us, they looked up at us in unison, then one miaowed. 

Game Over

This post is late for Friday but early for #Caturday.
