"Sorry I missed your comment of many months ago. I no longer build software; I now make furniture out of wood. The hours are long, the pay sucks, and there's always the opportunity to remove my finger with a table saw, but nobody asks me if I can add an RSS feed to a DBMS, so there's that :-)"

Small victories. #BanTheBeg
Minneapolis, once again, leads the way.
St. Paul isn’t there yet, but I’m 85% confident @email@example.com will GET THIS RIGHT by the time the next 100yr pandemic hits in the year 2120
"Zoning has never stopped pollution, it’s only shunted undesirable uses to more racially segregated or less politically connected areas. What has stopped pollution is strong regulation, enforcement, and monitoring. These are vastly better at controlling pollution than the blunt tool of zoning, no matter where a use is placed."
