Some of the highlights:
The GOP is done. They’ve become the bitch of the far left Democrats. They think this will help them but it won’t. Next the left will go after them and then they’ll eventually eat their own starting with Schumer and Pelosi until the Democrat party is so far left they make AOC look like Reagan.
This user feels duped for the first time in 25 years.
This person isn't concerned about Trump's legacy. (-39)
A user named ass-professional doesn't understand the meaning of irony when he accuses Democrats of a coup.
This comment devolves into people in-fighting about budgets. (-52)
Hi Reddit, I'm Davepl and I'm stoked to answer any questions you have about the projects I worked on or about working at Microsoft during the 90s in general. I was on every major operating system from MS-DOS through XP & Server 2003.
My general timeline starts in 1993 on MS-DOS, where I worked on Smartdrv, Doublespace, Setup, Diskcopy, and others.
I soon moved to Windows NT, where I started in RPC/OLE and moved to Windows shell to undertake the port of the Win9X user interface over to Windows NT.
Along the way I worked on our initial version of Media Center, Space Cadet Pinball, Windows Product Activation, and others.
For background info on how I got to Microsoft, the stories of how Task Manager, ZipFolders, and Pinball came to be, and proof (video of my cardkey, office, etc) please check out the following video:

After experimenting with a 100 intellect, Chaos reach, Geomags, empowering rift, and Truthteller build, I realized I had found my calling. I couldn't help myself, everything just died in the crucible. I masterworked a set of armor and was looking forward to starting a new week as a Warlock.
But what I didn't expect was waking up with such a negative worldview. It's almost as if a switch was flipped. When I looked at myself in the mirror while dressing, I loudly proclaimed "clothes are not made for my kind!" I couldn't find something suitable, so I walked down to breakfast naked.
My wife, who I had been in love with for the better part of a decade, had just finished cooking. She was perplexed by my appearance, but handed me a plate. I couldn't believe how terrible the the food she had made for me was.
"BUFF this food, I demand it. My friends eat so much better!" I'd never use the word 'buff' outside of the game before, and lord knows no one has used it to describe myself.
Don't even get me started on the sex. For the first few weeks we were dating, it was AMAZING. I was an animal, and there was no limit to my victories in the bedroom. Helmet on or helmet off, it didn't matter....we just kept going, all night. But it inexplicably was all taken from me, and it doesn't seem like it's even worth the time anymore. The magic is gone, and I'm jealous when I hear about so many of my friends crushing it with no problems.
When I tried to talk to my wife at breakfast about how much better my friends sex was, she kind of just stood there for awhile, then said "maybe its not just all about you." She started crying, and I headed out to my car.
From the traffic on the ride to work, to the way my boss now interacts with me, I don't know how life became so suddenly unfair.
I deserve so much more than this. Consequently, I'm going to be airing my grievances everywhere, particularly in places where they're completely unrelated to the subject at hand. Fellow warlock mains, I get it now: we've been handed a raw deal from the moment our ghost woke us up. It's time to rise up, even if we need some medication to help with that.
So at work today I discovered a buddy typing out long commands, directory names, and file names by hand in his shell terminal. When asked, why not use tab completion? He said "never heard of it." Baffled, I explained by pressing tab as you type a command out or file/directory name it will autocomplete. He thanked me and I went on my way. I guess this was something told to me very early on when using a shell and I thought it was general knowledge. You really never know something until you're told, so I thought this would be a great story to share in here in hopes others can learn from it and realize some things are just taught and aren't self evident. So do not feel to bad for not knowing something because there are people out there who probably do not know it either.
My bf told me his on/off ex of 7 years started contacting him this past week. She was leaving very sexually explicit messages. He wouldn't block her he just said she would eventually go away.
At one point he told me to pose with his dog on my Instagram so she'd get the point that I was with him.
Yesterday he finally agreed to confront her with me there. He called her 5 times but she didn't pick up so he decided to leave a text with the following, "Leave us the f*ck alone. I don't like you!"
His ex responded back with, "You're saying this 'cause she's right there, LOL. I miss you so much. This reminds me of last time and we see what happened to her. Please let me know when she leaves."
We are in a long distance relationship. I'm afraid since he's known her for almost 10 years she knows him better than I do. I tried asking my bf what she meant by "see what happened last time." He said she doesn't know what she is talking about.
When he was in the bathroom today I saw she texted his phone. He hadn't blocked her. He only blocked her on Instagram.
I feel he may. be still into her. I wanna confront him about seeing her number pop up on his phone.
Tldr; Bf's ex was texting him nonstop for 1 week. Bf finally agreed to confront her. She doesn't believe me anything he said because he said it in my presence. She's still calling.
