After writing mobile apps for a couple of years, I realized just how huge the security issues of the entire stack (radio protocols, platforms, and apps) were. I stopped writing apps and ditched my phone. I only really miss the navigation, but my stand-alone gps is adequate.

I'm disappointed no one has commented that there are missing semi-colons and the equality is using == instead of ===, which would then result in a religious debate around the concept of truthy/falsy and a debate on jslint vs ESLint which would, in due course, spiral down to comments on personal hygiene and ancestry.

I have a work colleague who has a habit of disturbing me while I'm working. He's a great bloke in every other sense, but he will often disturb me while I'm working with non-work related conversations e.g. "Hey did you see this on the news this morning....." etc. These can occur at any time of the day, not just lunchtime.
I appreciate his friendliness, but would also appreciate being left alone to get on with my job. I don't mind the work related discussion, but I find the non-work related chat a distraction.
What's a polite way of telling them that I'm actually busy.
