    Just another hokey movie we won't be wasting money or more importantly, time to see.

    I noticed that too! I never watch stuff like that but the one with Alex Trebek was quite nice.

    Prime is my go-to for all sorts of documentaries. Been watching more of those than movies for years. Truth really can be stranger than fiction!

Soulja boy's console follies was lampooned on SNL. Time to pack it up, it's gone mainstream.

Again, why can't I have a nice meal without my arch nemesis showing up & body slamming me? Is there no peace in the wrestling ring?

    I read that as "body shaming", and I was like.. damn, that's a truly dastardly arch-nemesis!

Okay everyone, we have a complex IT project ahead of us this sprint: We have to unsubscribe tommyg2929geewhiz@htomail.com from this mailing list. Let's do this!

    By "unsubscribe", you certain mean a function to validate that an email address is working and is read, so valuable to save for future spam postings?

Alright, I confess. I worked with Soulja Boy & his console "sales" just as a way to make the world's longest AtariAge forum thread. You caught me.

With Bandersnatch, it took us this long to get the first "interactive tv" episode that goes wacky meta, but no, let's not do that again.

    Isn't it charming though that the whole thing is about a never released game for the (to non-Europeans at least) obscure home computer ZX Spectrum?

    So the episode sucks? I find that with Black Mirror, an episode is either great or awful, no in-between.

Listen, I don't know what's going on here. I'm a small town sheriff, and not convinced there's some crazy killer about town. I'll send a squad car out to check it out. Hmm, the phone lines are down.

    Java is still widely used, and it's the main programming language that we use in our CS and CIS classes, but it's gone through some weird growing pains lately. NetBeans fell behind a bit after the transition to the Apache Project, which didn't help either.

    (Fortunately, Java 8 is still an active Long Term Support release. Most Java shops seem to be sticking with 8 for the time being, until the tools and libraries catch up a little more with Java 11.)
