Dunno if it's baked in or an addon I'm using, but the auto-format that runs when I delete/replace the closing } at the end of a file eats end of line white space.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

I don't know whether to hit the joke or the rant icon. Or both.
I can't even make a phone call from the phone at my desk. After smashing some buttons, the phone is "booting." I kid you not. It's a VOIP, currently doing a DHCP lookup or whatever. Now it's doing HTTP calls. There's a screen showing what it's doing...still not working....
That is so interesting.
I had to make a call today. I picked up my desk phone (IP phone) and began dialing.
I had pressed 3 or 4 numbers and it wasn't doing anything.
I said (out loud to myself) "Can you not just dial a number on this thing? How do I dial a number?"
Suddenly, all the digits appeared on the screen and then I could hear the next numbers begin making number-pressing sounds.
It's all junk!
Say all you want about our old rotary phones. They worked. Yes, 8s, 9s, and 0s were a pain to wait for while the rotary spun back around, but they worked.
It's one of those mornings, where I need to be awake enough to fill out the annoying DB migration forms and submit them to one of the worst UX web sites, our internal SDLC site. But I also want a valium to ease the stress of doing this BS.
