Oh my, a search indicates it -is- making a comeback!
I was born in the late 60s, and I grew up watching reruns of The Brady Bunch, Happy Days, I Dream of Jeannie, Betwitched, etc. (I would have been in kindergarten when Happy Days premiered.)
It's only recently that I discovered these originally aired in _prime time_, and that kind of blew my mind. I thought of these as kids shows, and it's amazing to think that adults would sit down in the evening to watch The Brady Bunch.
The worst meetings are when nobody leads it, there's no set agenda, and everyone sits there reading Slack, waiting for someone to have something to talk about and the meeting just doesn't end until the designated time.
Next week, I think I'm going to have to take control of this meeting. I think this 30 minute meeting could have been done in 10 minutes.
I'm super picky about what's on my desktop. For years on Windows, I just used a plain blue background, no icons.
Ten years ago on Linux, I found a visually interesting but not distracting bunch of random color swirls. 11 years later I'm still using this same background.
Ironically, I use a tiling window manager, which means windows fill the whole screen... I only see the background for a moment when I switch to an empty desktop.
This is totally what it's like being an RPG gamemaster trying to get players to make characters that fit in.
I've built my career around automation and solutions with as few moving parts as possible. Simplicity has few points of failure and is easy to maintain and work on.
Modern engineers are like...
It's kind of interesting to think that there is so little footage of what typical life in the 80's was like... but when the teenagers of today want to look back in 30 years, there will be so much video. The really interesting question is... how will they find it? Will all of the TikToks be gone? Will YouTube still have millions of videos from 2020 when 2050 rolls around?
"We've just had a large confirmed tornado on the ground in" CUTS TO AT&T COMMERCIAL
See this is how I know I'm not in Tornado Alley anymore. KFDI knew when to throw to a commercial and it was always a roofer or body shop or Home Depot, ads specifically bought for "whenever there's tornado coverage."
