Notice to all users of the Holodeck:

There are safety protocols in place that cannot be deactivated without the approval of two commanding officers or the captain to protect users of the Holodeck from potential harm. However, every time the Holodeck is ever used in a nontrivial manner, no matter what the safety protocols say, the Holodeck turns into a deathtrap.

Unless you believe yourself to be adept at constructing a forcefield from your communicator and 19th century Earth tools, or you're at the very least not wearing a red shirt, you are strongly advised not to attempt to use the Holodeck until a designer comes up with a safety protocol that doesn't kill you whenever somebody looks at it funny. Even when you're not on the holodeck. Or in the same quadrant. Or time period.

In fact, if you are wearing a red shirt, Starfleet may not be the job for you

Visual Studio

If I were to ask a graphic designer what they thought "Visual Studio" was, they would probably say it's something like the Adobe Production Suite, where you can edit images, video, etc. all together.

If I were to ask a painter, they would probably describe something like a room for inspiration while you paint.

If I were to ask a movie director, he would say it's a new-fangled production company that focuses on visual effects for movies.

And if I were to ask a computer programmer? Well, of course, we all know that Visual Studio has nothing to do with any of that, but is instead an integrated environment for coding and testing programs. Lots of text, and {curly brackets}. Not much art. Funny choice for a name, don't you think?

Back in the groove

Wherein I describe my rut, or groove, if you want to be equestrian* about it:

I have finally received my badge at work, which means I'm allowed to come and go as I please, without Ben letting me in. I feel a little bit less like a POW** now. But only a little bit. They've still got me in an 8-foot by 8-foot cell. They don't even feed me. But I suppose they do pay me now.

I say I suppose, because I haven't gotten paid yet. I can only assume they will come tomorrow, because they finally told me how to submit my hours. Yeah, you don't do that in prison. Take that, federal-penitentiary-occupants! Hah! I have to submit time-cards!

* - Pedestrian
** - Prisoner on weekdays
