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.

Today is the day. It's the longest night of the year and from tomorrow on the days will become longer again. Sitting at home and recovering from a few operations, this is going to be one sad christmas, so I need something to do.
So it had to be something old. Something trhat I had skipped and that has enough content to last a while. After a perverse download of updates (about 20 Gig), I have this now ready to go: Fallout 4[^]. They actually have a suit of power armor (with almost dead batteries), a minigun and a Deathclaw to get a level 2 character to get started and have some fun.

- Even if news comes out that the World's gonna blow up all I have is: 'bout friggin time!
yep, it's peak season for grumpy old farts, and I'm in my prime.
As a developer the only stuff I had on my office machine are projects I was working on for the company. Everything was both backed up and in source control, no databases on the local machine and no personal stuff at all.
I had access to the development and UAT boxes and intranet. Why do I even need a password there is nothing on there that is not company specific and available to all my peers. And yet every 90 days I had to go through the same old routine.
Never underestimate the power of human stupidity -
