It’s after lunch on a 3 day holiday weekend here on the East Coast of the USA. That means most of the workforce has checked out (either literally or figuratively) and highway traffic headed toward any body of water is beginning to slow to a crawl. Be safe out there and have a great weekend.
Stuff I bookmarked recently. Some off topic, some not:
October 2018 Update
The Windows press are all wetting themselves over the fact that the next Win10 update has a name.
“I’m pleased to announce that our next feature update to Windows will be called the Windows 10 October 2018 Update. With this update, we’ll be bringing new features and enhancements to the nearly 700 million devices running Windows 10 that help people make the most of their time. We’ll share more details about the update over the coming weeks.”
No release date but I will go out on a limb and say sometime in October.
Useful or creepy? Machines suggest Gmail replies
“The responses are automatically created using Google’s artificial intelligence systems. Humans aren’t reading people’s emails, but machines are scanning them. Although Google stopped scanning email to target advertising in 2017, it still scans them to filter out junk mail, identify phishing scams and, now, to create suggested replies. (Yahoo and AOL, both owned by Verizon, still scan email for advertising.)”
I vote creepy.

In the early to mid 80s there was a Country Rock band in Virginia called Snuff. Though they never hit the big time, IMHO they were great.
I thought I would leave you with my favorite song from them called When Jokers Are Wild . I carefully recorded it from the original LP.
