    VVO At One Year 🎂

    It all happened so quickly that I didn't have time to worry. One day we were on SLU and the next we were on VVO and it was as smooth as stepping from one room to another.

    Nobody Cares about Tech Support

    I've been working with SharePoint since about 2003, and every new version has its own little quirks and challenges. SP2011 was very kludgy, but 2013 was a big improvement and probably the one I'm most comfortable working with. Since I work mostly on legacy accounts, I've had little to no...

    Yay! Bakes on Mesh arrives on Monday.

    Aha! Okay now these weird rants make a lot more sense. I had the feeling I was missing some kind of context for these puzzling over-the-top reactions.

    Nobody Cares about Tech Support

    Part of what I do is provide tech support for our company intranet, which is built on SharePoint. A few days ago our brand-new intranet editor published an article at the end of the day and an unnoticed error on that page brought down the homepage for a few hours. I wasn't around to fix it, so...

    Nobody Cares: PRS

    Like "Latinx", "Latins" just sounds like an English culture derivative, rather than a term that arises out of its native culture. I haven't got a strong opinion on any of these -- my Hispanic identity is not that well developed, at least not enough for my opinion to have much weight. But both of...

    Jeffrey Epstein charged

    Despite all the denials from Buckingham Palace, is anyone really surprised to hear this?

    Shows you should be ashamed to enjoy, but aren't?

    I feel that way about Vicious, the British comedy with Ian McKellan and Derek Jacobi. It's bitchy in the extreme, plays on stereotypes of gay men (at least of a certain era) and takes pot shots at the aging fag-hag stereotype, not to mention the running butt of jokes is an elderly woman with...

    Yay! Bakes on Mesh arrives on Monday.

    It's not much of a problem, and I'm puzzled why you're worried about "hate"... this is about as low-pressure a feature as we could ask for. For a period of a few weeks, some eager residents will look a little weird to Firestorm users. No big-deal and entirely temporary. It's wholly optional...

    Democratic Party Presidential Candidates for 2020

    If Buttigieg was higher in the polls than he currently is, this story might have legs -- shaky though they might be -- but ironically, he's probably dodged any nasty damage because he's simply not all that relevant. Pete is doing just well enough to be heard, and as a gay woman I'm absolutely...

    Democratic Party Presidential Candidates for 2020

    What I find most disturbing about Biden's casually broad stereotypes -- which I consider to be racist, even if he is smugly paternalistic rather than vicious -- is that he had 8 YEARS of close association with Barack Obama and apparently Biden learned not one damn thing about his own prejudices...

    Democratic Party Presidential Candidates for 2020

    Biden is familiar, and a great many people seem to have conflated "familiarity" with "safety & security." He feels like a known quantity due to his long association with Obama, who everyone is remembering very fondly now. In truth, Biden had a fairly low profile for those 8 years, and people...

    The human hamster wheel. One of the ways huge quantities of carbon were removed and sequestered from the atmosphere and the ocean was in laying down oil and coal deposits. We're "liberating" millions of years worth of sequestered carbon, and now scrambling for ways to restore balance that...
