Xcode has become more and more bloated. The download package is 11GB now, so it takes forever to download and install. The installation fails repeatedly from the Mac App Store app, and then starts over from the beginning of the download when you try again (ever heard of caching, Apple?). And after all these years, it’s still not even a good IDE.

And then this: https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/jun/05/new-york-state-57-police-resign-to-support-officers-fired-for-shoving-75-year-old

“Why? Why was that necessary? Where was the threat?” asked the New York governor, Andrew Cuomo, at his daily briefing on Friday, saying he had spoken to Gugino. “It’s just fundamentally offensive and frightening. How did we get to this place?”

But the local police union boss defended his officers. “Fifty-seven resigned in disgust because of the treatment of two of their members, who were simply executing orders,” said John Evans, PBA president, according to WGRZ.

“Disgust”? They were punished for mistreating an elderly man. “Simply executing orders”? So their orders were to abuse those they’re sworn to serve and protect?

Good riddance. We don’t need your kind of filth on the police force. Don’t come back. You are part of the problem, not the solution.

Why should he be held responsible for her words?

This kind of hyper-sensitive, politically-correct stupidity has got to stop. The so-called “tolerant” left is about the furthest thing from tolerant. “Your wife said something unpleasant, so we can’t have anything to do with you.”

We’re trying so hard to become a socialist police-state, so why don’t we send him and his wife to “re-education” or indoctrination training, so they can learn to think like good little plebs?

If you change your RSS feed to a truncated blurb or complete lack of content so that I’m forced to visit your website so I can be served ads, I will stop reading your blog.

So, if you have a package.json file without a version key in it, and try to run any variation of the “npm version” command, it will fail and NOT TELL YOU WHY. (This is one of the reasons why Javascript and the whole ecosystem needs to be wiped from the face of the planet.)

The Houston Astros cheating scandal is disgraceful. The team should be stripped of its titles, fined heavily, banned from the sport for a number of years, and all players and management involved prevented from participating in any capacity for the same period.

And counter-arguments like this are utterly retarded. (Sam Hill, you’re a disgusting, terrible person.)
