The DQYDJ Weekender, 5/7/2016

August 22nd, 2020 by 

This is probably only the third redesign Don't Quit Your Day Job... has gone through, and it's always a bit of a letdown when the majority of things are done.  Expect to see only minor changes and new features added, but at this point it's mostly What You See is What You Get.

Hope you enjoy it though - I think it looks a lot better.

Also, that '.com'.  I can get used to it!

  • San Francisco is a case study in poor housing laws (not that the rest of the Bay Area is better), but one of the more common refrains you'll hear when asking how to reduce prices is "build more housing".  Here's to story of one neighborhood's fight to prevent housing from being built.

  • Godwin's Law states that as an online discussion continues longer and longer, the odds someone will be called a Nazi or Hitler approach one hundred percent.  Curious GNU set out to find some of those hand-wavey percentages (without trying to prove Godwin's Law), and found that half of all threads with more than 1,000 comments had a mention, and up to 90% of threads over 4,000!
