Someday I want to write the Batman comic where the Scarecrow helps Bruce to realize he needs to deal with his PTSD, he gets therapy and learns to cope, and then he starts using his money and influence to enact large-scale societal changes. All of the villains in Arkham Asylum actually get meaningful help instead of being locked up. There's a whole two issues dedicated, essentially, to basic urban planning concepts. Poison Ivy becomes the head of Parks & Rec. Etc.

@KelsonV Agree with everything except Flickr. They have and always had a business model that provided unlimited storage and features for a monthly fee. Given the vast loads of ad- and tracking-paid "pseudo-free" services, we should support such models. 😉

@KelsonV Dropbox has lowered its free limits and there have been rumours that tumblr has literally zero backups for any of its user content. Unless you've got a backup you can point to, you don't have a backup!

In the last few months:
- Tumblr purged adult content (and a bunch of stuff it misindentified).
- Flickr purged free storage above a limit of 1000 photos/account.
- Myspace deleted 12 years' worth of music.

And Google+ only has two weeks left before Google pulls its plug.

The depressing thing though is that in 2010 Windows could offer a choice of five browsers with five different rendering engines built by different companies (Firefox, Chrome, Opera, IE, Safari). Whereas Android will likely just offer multiple flavors of Chromium (plus Firefox, the odd duck out).

Gotta love when something that's been on your back-burner to-do list for years turns out to only take 45 minutes.

I mean, on one hand, it's done! And it was easy! And fast! On the other hand, why didn't I get it out of the way years ago?

OMG. I'm going through a section of my personal website that I haven't touched in ages and I found a file called, I kid you not, fixwebtv.js

I think it's safe to delete that one.

Ordered pizza for pi day. Time estimate was 70 minutes. When I arrived to pick it up, it turned out they had a deal on $3.14 personal pizzas for the day. The entire rack was stacked with personal sized pizza boxes. That certainly explains the wait!

*sigh* "This is terrible" isn't a _helpful_ review, even if you agree with it.
