Three quite different bits of fluff minutiae:
1. I'm something of a C++ hobbyist slash nutcase :) Almost two decades ago now I wrote a CMS in C++ however web server scripting was PHP. As of this week PHP is gone. C++ rules!
2. While I truly appreciate the power and utility of node.js it has some serious 'holes' and ongoing critical security issues are a concern.
As I also use Redis the development/addition of streams, is in my usage, a viable alternative. Currently in development/test but, depending in part on Redis version release, should be ready for production side by side test release in a few months.
3. A friend who retired to sunnier climes in the southwest Pacific/Indian oceans area was getting his digs in the other day: mid morning, his time, he was out in shorts and tee enjoying 34C (93F) while early evening, my time, I was just in from exercising dog in -34C (-29F). Wearing far more clothes.
Can one hire a snowball attack in the tropics?
