Important PSA for people living in the US: The FCC has been forced to reopen public comment on the Net Neutrality decision following a court case by Mozilla. The influx of bots (suspiciously using the names of telecom subscribers) that were anti-Net Neutrality has caused this. The FCC is trying to bury this, and very few are reporting on it.
To (re)file your thoughts on the FCC's decision, go to fcc.gov/ecfs/filings/express. Proceeding 17-108 is Net Neutrality. This ends in March.

The Bob's Red Mill guy gave his company to his employees. Hell yeah

@Greg That really captured a certain feeling I had this morning. Especially that slow moving, single engine.

@dirtycommo Is wholesome defined by how much swearing you do while you program in the language?

@richdecibels Understandable. It is a sweet looking and sounding guitar.

@yrabbit Yeah, there could definitely be a better term for this phenomenon.
