A little “refactoring” humor, from this Twitter page. (I have a few “Area 51” classes of my own going on right now, so I can appreciate this.)

This crazy guy seems to seek out a bear, then yells at the bear when it charges him. He’s lucky to be alive.

Typesafe is in the process of changing their corporate name, open source style. You can read about it here.

As the About page says, “LiquidHaskell is a static verifier for Haskell, based on Liquid Types.” (Whatever that means. I’m just learning about it.)

I’ve been interested in “Imposter Syndrome” since I first heard about it. I’ve thought about it as being a lack of confidence, and that’s illustrated in this graphic by Jay Elmore, which I found on this Twitter page.

If you haven’t read the Akka five-year time anniversary timeline, it’s a fun look back at recent history.

I was walking along a quiet trail here in Colorado this morning. It was raining pretty hard, but I was happy because a) I wasn’t in the hospital, b) I wasn’t in pain, and c) it reminded me of walking through a forest in Alaska on a rainy day.

I’ve been working on creating an Android football game lately. It still needs a lot of work, but this is what it looks like at the moment. The UI needs a lot of work, and I need to add more plays, but the basic functionality is there.

From time to time I still think about moving to Providence, Rhode Island so I can live as an “outpatient” :) at the Providence Zen Center, and from experiences there I know that Dunkin’ Donuts is big in the northeast. Here’s a story of a behind-the-scenes visit to Dunkin’ Donuts HQ.

From a NYT article titled, “Everything I know about journalism.” A lot of the advice is good career advice.

The Dalton Highway in Alaska is flooded, and could remain flooded for more than four days. It’s the only road to and from Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, and made famous by the Ice Road Truckers. (May 19, 2015)

I don’t know how Charlotte Brown does this, but she is an inspiration. The story is here on espn.com.

In case you ever wanted a flying car, here’s the Aeromobile:

Continuing along with my great diverticulitis adventure (or, “How I spent the Spring of 2015“), yesterday I took another trip to the ER, had another CT scan, and to my great surprise I found out that I don’t have diverticulitis, but instead I have something called Epiploic appendagitis:
