    @marilynch Funny you mention WordPress. I was just speaking with a colleague today about how we’ve each independently arrived at a “just say no” position on WP. Not helpful if you are already using it, I know.

      This looks interesting except for the fact that I can’t get past the built-in bias of the logo - http://buildguild.org

        All this armchair chatter about ‘innovation’ and ‘user experience’ feels shallow. Bored-people-talking-fashion shallow.

          I can’t wait for this project to finish, so I can move on to a new iTunes playlist. It’s become a weird superstitious thing for me.

            The Expanse is not “Game of Thrones in space.” Grrr.

              @davidsheeks Yeah, it's near impossible to explain the misery of a severe migraine to someone who has never experienced it. // @dalton

                @dalton When mine were hitting me hard in my teens and 20s it was usually a combination of two or three food chemicals in combination that would trigger it. My very first migraine was caused by bubblegum ice cream. Laid me out for 24 hours.

                  @dalton It’s good you now what triggers them. If caffeine caused me migraines I’d be in trouble.

                    @dalton Oh man, you don’t have to explain to me. I don’t get them any more (knock wood), but for years I would periodically get hit with utterly debilitating attacks. I hope you’re not feeling one coming on right now.

                      @longstride The 26 year old version of me is just shaking his head at me. Then again the current me is a lot more world-wise than that guy.

                        @longstride Come join me and we’ll find some single-malt, my friend.

                          I’m not sure when I became a responsible, sober-minded adult, but it does take the fun out of petulant moments like this one, when I’d rather do something self-indulgent and stupid.

                            @feorlen I’m with you. There are stupid rules and there are rules that make all kinds of sense. Fail to adhere to a rule in the latter category and you get what you deserve.

                              @curtismchale I like how you point out that prioritization is a huge part of it: “They can’t do it because they’re not willing to give up TV hours at night and read about how to run a business.”

                                If I could I’d spend all day finishing Creativity, Inc., Ed Catmull’s book about the lessons he’s learned running Pixar.

                                  @johngordon Wow. The degree of willful avoidance of reality from some IT managers is just astounding. Even the horse and buggy were eventually replaced.

                                    @mdhughes I tried to watch one of the old episodes and didn't make it very far. I loved it as a kid but can't now.
