I’m at the point that I no longer discuss politics with people.

Every day, it’s become more stirring the pot and confusing the masses with pointless conjecture and posturing. Hell, I thought it was vaguely amusing in the 90s when they were able to redefine the concept of sex was- but we’re far, far beyond that now.

Once upon a time, about a decade ago, I was deeper into the “Social Media” networks, trying to converse with not only like-minded, but also people with opposing viewpoints. That time has ended abruptly- generally after my accounts disappeared overnight following a debate. I eventually got tired of bothering to reregister.

I’m done with it. Social Media is an experiment that failed. It went from a means of not only expansion of ideas and knowledge into “My Friendly Hugbox”. I don’t care to be a party to that.

If I want to read or hear pointless dreck from ANY side, I’ve got plenty of mailing lists to choose from, and I only have to deal with it whenever I choose to have it sent to me (daily, weekly, never!). Please don’t involve me in your politics, because I’m trying to live my life. You might consider doing the same.

You make a script with a simple flat database to alert you when you need to get your cars smogged, because it’s easier to decide for myself when it should be done, rather than rely on the DMV postcard/email notification to work.

I’ve added it to my initial login shells so I see it once per newlogin per day. It’s relatively simple in design, and works well for those like me who find their memory isn’t quite as sharp as it once was.

< 1999 9-3 Convertible is PAST DUE (April 15th, 2017)!
= Can renew 2008 9-5 2.3T now!
> Can renew 2000 9-5 Aero on August 6th, 2017.
- 2008 9-3 Turbo X is not up for renewal for over 6 months.
- 2001 9-3 Convertible is not up for renewal for over 6 months.

I’ve coded the responses to be easily read. “Less Than” means overdue, an equal sign shows that it can be reregistered now, “Greater Than” for time in the future, and a minus for a time more than 6 months in the future.

The 1999 isn’t registered as it isn’t roadworthy- yet. It needs a new headgasket and is currently non-op.
