I had a TI-99/4A! I learned BASIC on it (wrote my first GOTO at 6). Then I had an Apple IIe to code and play games on. And later, my first graphical interface was on a Mac. My first Internet experience and learning to write HTML code was on a Mac. After that, I went primarily Windows, and I may have never owned an iPod or bought an iPhone, but Apple is still a piece of my roots. Goodbye, Steve. :(

I have a theory about why they don't clear the panel rooms. I think they (ab)use the lines as overflow space. They plan for all those people waiting outside to get in. If they implemented a system whereby they distributed tickets for the panels, then there wouldn't be thousands of people herded into lines for the duration of the con and they wouldn't be able to sell as many tickets. Of course, they've significantly raised ticket prices of the past few years, so maybe they're going to fix that. (Haha, yeah right.)

I posted one in Redmond, WA, near a board game store. Before we had to move on, I saw a couple of people walk up to it. Didn't get to check back to see if they decided it was too dangerous to go alone. We need to come up with more Things like this. My mind is working on some right now!

It's so soul-crushing. It eats away at my faith in humanity every time I get into the car. Watching people play with the lives of others, making poor or even downright dangerous decisions, over and over. It's like most people think physics is their bitch. Sorry, you're physics' bitch, people. Stopping distance and signals, please! I don't care if you speed, just so long as you're not doing it on someone's tail! Drives like that are mind-numbing and there's no way to relax, with the way about half the population drives. I remember plenty of great days at work, but by the time I got home, I was terribly tense from the drive. I feel SO lucky now to have a round-trip of only 5 miles these days. I'm a much happier person.
