Compliment leads to disconnection

 Right prior to the 2020 election I complimented a writer’s comments about Biden. The response was a spiteful message emphasizing the superiority of the writer’s positions over mine. I sniped back a one sentence reply and she immediately unfriended me. It turns out to be for the best, but it was surprising and difficult at the time. My efforts at fandom are not going well.

Global constant

 I just realized something while debugging. What I thought was an uninitialized local variable is a global constant. This caused a lot of bugs due to lost messages. I am sorry for that.

Null pointer

A related item is a field used by something but not set to a value, such as a To: field which is blank when sending a message.

Z always complained about pointers and debugging their use, since the behavior is often unpredictable.

I think I just realized some of the problem: removing delusions of reference does not mean there are no references.

Now to review the reconstructed video of the Celebration of Life for Bill Murphy, who was an expert at studying how to deal with toxic waste and how to bury it safely for everyone.

May all beings be happy.
