Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

I happened to be looking at a blog post, Secret tip for Midas users (or wannabes) from five and a half years ago, and was hit by three realizations:

1) People are still regularly buying and using Midas, long after I thought IBM might make it obsolete;

2) People still don't regularly understand and use some of the more powerful Midas chunk definitions; and

3) All three stock market indicies are significantly lower now than then, about 13% down for the Dow Jones and S&P, 6% down for the Nasdaq.

The first is good news, the second simply intriguing to me, and the third downright depressing.  Nonetheless, that is the way it is, five and a half years later.

Due to severe storms (75 MPH winds, they say), we have no power in our area.  I had to venture out past uprooted trees to get to a coffee shop with Wifi.  Nonetheless, Happy Yellow Day!
