Before we get into that though here is this weeks rant on:
My goal here is to hit on some subject each week that has been irritating me, it may or may not be related to WordPress but will always be related to the Internet.
This week it is on:
When your trying to catch up just keep plugging away at things one item at a time until you get it all, this goes along with the fallacy that humans can actually multi task. We cannot do that no one can not even the great computer we build can. We have the illusion of multi tasking do to stopping and starting differing projects at the same time. This is kinda like the limitations of Warp Drive travel that can only be done in a straight line to move left or right requires coming out of warp changing course and then continuing.
Mmmmnnn Canada is not fat enough according to KFC seems that monstrosity artery clogging double down is back to annoy us again. Yes the American companies think Canadians should be as obese as the US is by providing us that pile of fat they call a sandwich.
Shout Outs: Yea we have one.
for Kurt, who says Love your stuff!! and offered us some great suggestions for future podcasts.
