Kinda hard to test a configuration in the sandbox when there are no examples of the thing the config would affect in said sandbox. Hello, production testing?

A librarian friend elsewhere, in talking about work, just had cause to use the phrase "serial fecal artist."

I very much appreciate a webinar presenter who is self-aware enough to know they ramble and so occasionally says "Ok, if you're doing another thing while listening, you really want to listen to this part." Even better, when they say that and it's true.

Surprising no one, the European dude probably didn't come up with the printing press in a vacuum: lithub.com/so-gutenberg-didnt-
