How Apple didn't include a media query in Safari 12 for dark mode is a mystery to me, even if it as browser specific for now. Being able to have dark mode targeted CSS is important if we are pushing more and more apps to the browser.

Interesting... an EAS alert happened on TV at 2:18 as well as the phone test.

Just a thought about todays EAS Test... 

Back on November 9 2011, during the Obama Administtration, they attempted to test the national aspects of the EAS. You see, although the system was built to allow the President to address the nation in 10 mins, it was never really used that way. Outside of frequent tests from regional civil organizations, most of us see the EAS when there are weather problems. Folks on the right claimed that President Obama was testing the system in order to take over our TVs and broadcast propaganda. Folks on the left said "shut up, it's just for emergencies"

Today, there was a test of the cell phone aspects of the EAS. Folks on the left think that President Trump was testing the system in order to take over our phones and broadcast propaganda. Folks on the right say "shut up, it's just for emergencies".

Measure your plans against your status quo, not perfection. Perfection is unattainable but you can always improve your situation.

Going through my photos looking for. a shot of David Wright and found this shot of Jeter sliding into third in a subway series game.  It's good to see David play in one last game.

I was thinking about the ordering kiosks in McDonalds today and got to wondering if there are more custom orders now that people are entering their own orders.  The ability to point and click your way through "Extra Ketchup" and "Add Bacon" has to be more tempting than trying to get the order taker to understand what you want.  I wonder what effect that has on service times as make food becomes less assembly line.
