If you're looking for a great counter-example of how to document something see any boost library. It's amazing to me how often their documentation and reference material fails to answer the most simple of questions.

Today's problem? I have managed to find the exact documentation for the function that I want to use. That documentation is lacking the following super-critical information for a library this large and complicated:

  • Which namespace is this in?
  • Which header file includes this function?

It's amazing that we ever manage to write anything in this language.

I always look at the SNES emulator with excitement.. Then I remember it has no way to rebind the buttons.

This is Bob Woodward's second book about Trump. He did come forward earlier.

For those of you that haven't heard it, here's the recording of Trump acknowledging the danger of CoVID-19 in private in February at the same time as he openly suggested it was the same as the flu.

This is a recording of the President of the United States giving away that he was knowingly telling people things that would get them killed.

Had to put down my cat Psyche today. She was older than my kids. Good-bye Psyche.

Criminal facts discovered after the fact do not justify murder. You killed her because you're callous murderers. She could have secretly been Hitler 2.0 and it wouldn't change that you had no cause when you murdered her.

Some songs just persist in being able to transport you to a certain mental state. Falling Away From Me has been one of those songs for me since the day it came out. @ShiftyTrey kicked me off on a YouTube adventure which eventually led to this cover. I've probably listened to this more times than I should have in the last two days.

I am really enjoying High Score on Netflix. I watch a lot of video game information shows and videos on YouTube so I was really unsure about starting this. I'm very glad I did. It covers a lot of stuff I didn't know in a very interesting style. They go out of their way to highlight the impact of women, black people, and the LGBTQ on the history of video games. The animations are really good. The storytelling style is very engaging. Check it out.

We're lied to so often by this administration that I have trouble believing it when they say something that sounds true and not horrible. Did Israel and UAE really make a deal and is it really a good thing? Is convalescent plasma actually working as a treatment for COVID-19?

"The decision not to intervene was a striking contrast to police tactics at several left-leaning Black Lives Matter protests in recent weeks. Officers have consistently declared unlawful assemblies and riots at nighttime protests that have devolved into property damage and projectiles thrown at police. Although those events have involved significant property damage at times, they have not involved firearms or rampant brawling among demonstrators."

The police actively supporting right wing militias. This was not then running low on resources. This was them actively providing space for fascist racists to enact violence and advocate for their shared principles.

The police are a right wing, fascist, racist militia. We should not be funding them.

I'm genuinely shocked today. This Republican claimed that something was a false narrative and it turned out to actually be a false narrative.

Wow. Shocked. I hope they start applying this candor to truths that are inconvenient to them.

If you're a retro gamer who hasn't tried out the Genesis Shadowrun you're missing out. This is one of my favorite games from the era and one of the best open world games of the time.

Apparently today is my anniversary. What to do? What to do?
