  • Commented on Someone please cancel 2019 already?
    I wonder is we're looking at the makings of a zombie-like state of perpetual-but-not-quite Brexit. Where the deadline is extended to stop a crash out, MP's continue to have no consensus on realistic terms the EU will accept, and no...
  • Commented on Peak Brexit
    "the USA ain't" Okay, but in defense of the USA, its politics have been co-opted over the past decades by a minority of sociopaths that don't really understand what a "government" is, the concept of social contract, basic economic principals,...

  • Commented on The light at the end of the tunnel (is not necessarily an oncoming train)
    Wild Cards is great news-- very pleased to see another great author added to that shared world. I discovered the series a few years ago, and was shocked that something of that quality had escaped my attention for so long....
  • Commented on Updating a classic
    Institute rigorous change management control procedures, under an agile method of development. Each "story" can encompass no more than a single change or addition of a function call. An "epic" may have no more than 5 "stories", and require unanimous...
