Due to an unforseen family medical situation, the founder of the startup I have been working for has been forced to put the business on hold.

But if Fury Road elevates girls in film, it’s only so they can join the boys. It’s not at the expense of boys. Furiosa’s strength and drive doesn’t render Max redundant or irrelevant.

Today I learned: if you are converting an old Asp.NET MVC project from SimpleMembership to Asp.NET Identity, and AuthorizeAttribute with roles is crashing trying to create a SimpleMembership database, turn off the RoleManager module in system.webServer/modules.

There are few things on this planet I hate more than bottled water. Just the crinkling sound of someone wrapping their mouth around one of those squeaky garbage accordions fills me with rage. I stopped drinking it a long time ago—and you should stop drinking it, too.
