So today is Easter Sunday as well. I expect a lot of kids got to find empty eggs this morning. (Or rotten ones.) I'm disappointed that the store where I work didn't get the camouflage plastic eggs this year. I think those would've been really popular.

This is the first Easter that I did not attend church. Letting go of Christianity has proven to be quite liberating.

Don't look now, but Jesus came back today and followed you home.

Sorry to hear that. I think you've been going to the wrong church if you feel liberated by leaving and not by going. But of course, as a free man that is your choice. We should probably take this to PM if you want to reply, though.

I've decided that from now on, I will pronounce "SSG" as "sausage". I expect the jokes to write themselves.

So I see a usergroup I hadn't seen before called ZAwards.

Are we doing our own yearly Cacowards-esque thing now?

I cannot stop playing Elite: Dangerous in VR. This is seriously one of the most amazing things I've ever experienced as a video game. Feeling your stomach go in to your throat as you rotate the ship and a Jupiter size planet full scale looms around you. I haven't gotten dizzy from the game, very solid rendering and frame rate. But I have gotten a few stomach drop feelings from realistic scale of it all. I don't even know if I can play regular video games anymore, between this and Project CARS 2 VR (which is so realistic I could teach someone how to drive stick shift on it with my set up. I've driven a few real 5th-gen ZL1 Camaros before, and in this game the clutch grab and the engine stall point was exactly how I remember it being on that car.)

Something that's been on my mind for a while now:

Do people with deep knowledge and experience with computers (programmers, engineers, etc.) still feel a bit of the magic of these technological marvels, or from knowing the insides so well, has that feeling dissipated?

When I think back to the technology we had in the 19th century, even knowing what I do about computers, it's still a bit magical, but probably not as much so as someone who knows nearly as much as I do, and certainly not the same as what it felt like when I was 9 years old.

Truth is, as efficient as our processor manufacturing techniques have become these days, it's still something of a miracle for a complex integrated circuit to work, and some of them do still come off the manufacturing line DOA.

I know none of it is truly magical, that it's really just an art that's been refined and perfected over the course of more than half a century, and I am well aware of the physics in both the manufacture and functionality of the chips. But I know it's something I could never dream of doing by hand, no matter how hard I tried.

Nope, to me the magic's always been there. Even if I know how it works, it's still miraculous - though maybe that's just me. :P
