Google’s Apps Script IDE just threw up a pop up that asked:

“What, if anything, do you dislike most about Apps Script today?”

That “if anything” really got me going. Seriously? I know Google folks tend to be a bit smug about their products and services, but… yuck.

Anyway, FWIW, my response:

No support for bringing in deps from npm (or similar). (I’d love to be able to bring in deps directly from Git repos, a la Deno.) No support for the Node or Deno standard libraries. No native TypeScript support. Inability to create/modify triggers via the API or clasp. Inability to manually change the “deployment” of a trigger, which means I need to manually delete and recreate them. clasp doesn’t support JSON as an output format.

I tried to be an ally for a co-worker in an iffy meeting yesterday — and I botched it. Let them down. 😞

I’m getting excited about Strange Loop!

I just created the channel -change in the Slack and it looks like some folks are joining. Bodes well.

If you’ll be in STL, ping me, let’s hang out!

(Photo is from one of my first times at Strange Loop, maybe my first, in September 2011.)

Redesign after redesign, year after year, and Slack’s information model continues to be incoherent and at odds with its user interface model.

I may have to start my own company just so I can stop using Slack, Discord, Jira, and Confluence. Ugh.

Just saw someone driving 3 kids in a beautiful bright blue Focus RS. Looked and sounded glorious. Love it!

I’ve been greatly enjoying the live session EPs that the prolific אקווריום (Aquarium) has been releasing in collaboration with a broad swath of Israeli musicians and musical groups.

(The bio on that page seems to be a mixup; I think it’s for the 2002 Washington, DC indie rock duo The Aquarium.)

The session with נרקיס (Narkis) is a favorite:הופעות-חיו
