Fantastic article on async/await that I missed earlier this year!

Cory breaks down the argument that async functions can't meaningfully be called from synchronous functions.

Not only is async/await just a syntactic convenience, the underlying technique is something people have been doing by hand for decades.

So I looked up the new law on Religious Freedom in Russia.  It's dark; real dark.  No "religious activities" in private homes.  No prosyletizing.  Explicit mention of the usual government lies about what I do.

It does describe missionary work as having "the purpose of involving these people in the membership of the religious association", which could be a good sticking point.  That may be part of the reason someone does missionary work, but the primary reason is bought out in Mathew 6:9, where Jesus asked God "Let your name be sanctified".  The primary reason for the work, then, is to lift the filthy stain that many church teachings have put on that name, claiming that God is responsible for much of the suffering we face or that he is unknowable or unloving.

There's no telling if other countries might adopt such laws, so hold on to your hats, kids; this is going to be a bumpy ride.

At the behest of a friend, I started playing with the concept of minecraft modding last week.  Today I finally got something on the screen!  Jen looks a bit like a zombie here (she thinks she is holding a bow) and is a bit one-dimensional at the moment, but at least I know I can do something.

Creep has been one of my favourite songs for about 15 years, and nobody does it justice like Daniela Andrande - except for Radiohead, of course.  Thankfully Daniela chose to do the radio edit, so it's guilt-free.

Thought I'd share a few great musicians I've been listening too lately.  Janet appeared on Richard's Spotify Weekly with a cover of The Cure's "It's Friday, I'm in love", and her voice is just delicious.  So, I thought you might enjoy with me.
