What the hell, +Google+​? I can no longer share posts to a "You only" collection? This was my perfect tool to save interesting posts in order to act on them later.

First week on the new job is over, and my brain is full.

Also, my sleep habits over my "between jobs" period were worse than I realized. It seems you need more rest when you're actually working all day. I am beat!

Completely serious here: I honestly can't listen to Trump very long, just because the way he speaks drives me up a wall. That said, I never got the impression that he is explicitly anti-LGBTQ. I'd love to see some clear examples of him saying he would attempt to roll back LGBTQ progress. That's really more the straight Republican platform, and I think we can all agree Trump is anything but a normal Republican.

So much yes...

I am becoming increasingly annoyed with job listing sites' inability to distinguish between "Build Engineer" and "Building Engineer".

I'm confused. A man presents identification with a photograph of a person of a different gender, and perhaps a familial resemblance, and it's discrimination to conclude that they're not the same person? For cryin' out loud, the whole point of being transgender is that you feel your outward appearance doesn't represent your internal experience.

This is clearly a case of someone taking offense at something that was blatantly benign. There should be no surprise if your ID is rejected because multiple aspects of it don't match the person presenting it.

I find it extremely amusing that an article in "The newspaper of record", which laments long and loudly that a presidential candidate doesn't recall the details of a specific city in a war-torn country, is followed immediately by these:

Correction: September 8, 2016
An earlier version of this article misidentified the de facto capital of the Islamic State. It is Raqqa, in northern Syria, not Aleppo.

An earlier version of the above correction misidentified the Syrian capital as Aleppo. It is Damascus.

We've lost another member of the B5 security team. Coincidence, or Vorlon conspiracy?

OK, this one has come up again, and it still pisses me off. These artists have a simple way to prevent politicians from using their music, but they don't have the guts to actually do it: leave ASCAP. As soon as they agree to take ASCAP's money, they've lost all right to ask that their music not be used in ASCAP-licensed venues (and the allegation in this particular song that these uses are unlicensed is just false).

So, simple solution. Handle all your own licensing, instead of following the crowd and taking the scattergun-easy money. Otherwise, your music will end up everywhere, used by people you don't like.

And #JohnOliver? If you're pretending to be a journalist, at least pretend to be one. A satirical take on the news is great, but a little fact-checking would be cool, too.
