One of the worst things about text chat as work communication (whether IRC, slack, etc) is asking a technical question, and while you're waiting for an answer, someone else posts a totally different question that sparks a conversation, and your important technical question goes unanswered.
I didn't have this much trouble with team mailing lists.

My wife's been posting pictures of her creations alongside photos of old Dragonriders books. I barely remember my great grandfather. He died when I was little. Years later, after great-grandma died and we were cleaning out the basement, I discovered in the many boxes of old books, some very early prints of Tolkien, Lovecraft, McCafferey, etc. It made me regret I never got to know the man because we clearly had something in common.

human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot
recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion.

Made entirely on an embroidery machine, in the 4x4" hoop (i.e. a size even the smallest embroidery machine can handle).
It's just a little over 3" tall, a little over 5" long. I'll put a picture of it with my hand for scale next.

And I'm like YOU GUYS THAT DOG IS A SERIAL ARSONIST
Was reading an Endgame callbacks article which reminded me [no spoilers]: in a fight scene after someone surprises someone else (and the audience) with an unexpected use of a power, a young teen down toward the front row blurted out in a sincerely aggrieved tone, "Well, that's just CHEATING!" into an equally-unexpected moment of near-silence and cracked up the whole theater.
