The Silver Lining

"May 2017 [a day that will live in infamy, and technically not a day,] the devastating Wannacrypt ransomware worm infected millions of computers in 150 countries - on the first day of the outbreak alone."

And I was there, well not right there, really, far away actually, but, as a compute-like professional unaffected by this outbreak, I used the worm story to get out of going to a wedding. So, thank you, miscreants! Thank you very, very much!

I played PS4 Lego Worlds all that day, and the world is a better place for it. Although there is some drawn-in clipping, and I completely obliterated some useful feature with the terrain tool, but otherwise a fine product. Oh, and I stepped on a Lego Squirrel by accident.
