Post 2000

On Feb 3, 2015, I posted "Hello, World". Coincidentally, someone just recently posted to Hacker News an bit about why that phrase is the canonical beginning of learning any new programming language. For me, Hello World is a germ of consciousness inside that computer, liberated by a coder to poke its head up and greet the rest of the world.

So 1,999* times since then, I have poked my head up with something to say. Sometimes a little, sometimes more. Sometimes just to quote a pithy cartoon that wishes it were parody, but is #NoParody.

Also: Happy Flag Day!

. . . we now return you to our regularly scheduled snark 

* - In 2016 I moved the blog from Google to WordPress. I think a posting or two got lost in the migration. But the WordPress stats say this is post #2,000, and so it is.
