As I do more MVC-based apps, I've been using Javascript more, so preventing this has become an issue...

I've been curious about Power Apps for a while, and although I haven't gotten fully up to speed on them, the idea of codeless apps for users by and for users is very interesting...

I've always had a particular sympathy for people that overcome barriers to do something significant in life, and this story is a great one. Tara, raised in an oppressive environment controlled by a semi-delusional father, rose beyond her confined world of fundamentalism to reach a level of academic success that is typically unheard of for someone of her background. The first half of the book details her home and how she was raised, and while painful, we know she will eventually grow and evolve. The second half was more touching and joyful to read than the first when Tara starts to understand the larger outside world, supported by others who equally achieved in ways that are exceptional, as well as by faculty that saw something special in her. It is simply a great story of personal growth, told simply, clearly, and with compassion.

I was surprised when my new endocrinologist mentioned this idea. As a software developer, I would not trust a device like this - the risk is too high - although automating reporting and notification would be plausible for me. That said, I ran into another Type 1 at my gym - I noticed her by the Omnipod sensor on her arm - I was intrigued. I have used a Dexcom CGM, and before that used a Medtronic insulin pump for its CGM, and have often told myself that I would not use a pump until there were no more tubes. I guess that day is upon us.

People that I know of that have an interest in bitcoin and its related activities mostly see a future in the ledger aspect, not in mining. Cryptocurrencies themselves will likely die out, maintained in an alternative world of criminal activity, while the ledge has been taken up by many as a way of maintaining accuracy in transactions, not necessarily monetary.

In retrospect, it might be more judicious to think that Bitcoin will not die out but morph into some other beast, as it is unlikely as it will completely disappear, simply added to the mix of technologies. Someone will make better use of it as a transactional system.
