Service Alert – November 23, 2020

Expect outages and delays.
(Interim billing at the standard rate. It is, after all, the American way.)
Extended MU meeting.  These things happen.
Somebody’s got to do it.
Lemme see: keys, wallet, handkerchief, pocketknife, checkbook.
Phone, pen, pallumbrast.
Yup. Ready to go.
See you later.

Can you remember where you were, what you were doing November 23, 1963?

Retired career IT software engineer, or as we were called in the old days, programmer, it's time to empty my file cabinet of all the "creative" writing accumulated over the years - toss most of it, salvage and publish what is worthwhile.

    1. Yes. When I wrote tech manuals years ago, I placed whole paragraphs of readable nonsense in text, suspecting no one read the manuals. In 40-odd years I was correct.

      1. You can consider it so if it suits your fancy. Blogs themselves morphed from original “intent” long before now, so I don’t feel to be in violation of a canon. No more so than the blatant self-promoting, overtly commercial, non-bio-logging, woe-is-me, political,
        contest, or rant “page.” My intent, to be honest, was insertion of something silly to catch readers off-balance, or to nudge them in that direction. Thank you for taking time to push back.
