Stupid Security

I get some medications from Humana mail order pharmacy. The prices are great for most of my meds. I got this text message a few days ago and almost did not click on the link. I did, but you can shame me later for breaking a major computer security rule about not clicking on links from unknown sources. It turns out this was a valid sender, Humana Pharmacy. By looking at the text message could you figure that out?

Me & my guilty pleasure

I have a new guilty pleasure in life. Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint. I am 51 and just now got started enjoying video games. I have to admit this game is fun to me. Not to sound sick, but after a long day, I find it relaxing to kill people. Don’t worry there is no need to call the police. I can control myself :-) Keep my Algolia index from being deleted.

President Stupid

Trump really is stupid. #BREAKING: President Trump says federal government may "take over cities" to combat rising crime: "Numbers are going to be coming down even if we have to go and take over cities." pic.twitter.com/IJNDfAwvAS — The Hill (@thehill) July 13, 2020

An Algolia Test Post

Do you sometimes find yourself typing commit messages in a hurry, immediately pushing to GitHub and only noticing too late that you’ve made a bunch of typos? It’s happened to me often enough that I decided my commit messages need a spellchecker. The good news is, git has your back here. A commit-msg hook makes this really easy. Hooks are simply shell scripts with a name git recognizes and placed in a directory where git is looking for hooks.

People Suck

So apparently some coward left a noose hanging in the garage of the only black NASCAR driver. What kind of coward does this? Here is Bubba’s statement via Twitter. pic.twitter.com/koL655AJB9 — Bubba Wallace (@BubbaWallace) June 22, 2020 Update It turned out the FBI determined the noose was hanging there since October of 2019, and there was no way for someone to know Bubba would get that garage. Seems like the track & NASCAR were pretty stupid.
