The 2019 Portland Book Festival—Literary Arts’ annual one-day book and author extravaganza—popped off pretty-damn-seamlessly this year. Portland’s rain showed up in traditional damp, mono-cloud fashion, but the locality of the readings and book fair (in and around the Portland Art Museum) meant attendees didn’t have to endure much gentle sky mist. Mercury News Reporter Blair Stenvick and Copy Chief Robert Ham attended the festival this year. Their reports on the day are … Read More
…about driving my 2018 car that is EXEMPT from DEQ testing because it is a low emission vehicle. I keep getting the guilt trip from people in this town for driving a car. I keep seeing the city literally saying that they want to make driving more difficult as to force people to take crappy public transit. I see the city is using that Gas Tax that was supposed to be used to fix our “third world country” roads, but is instead … Read More

When Big Freedia is bouncing through town you know that’s gonna be one hell of a weekend, right? But mankind cannot subsist on azz alone (but it’d be fun as hell to try), and there’s much on the menu for connoisseurs of fine entertainment to sink their teeth into, including sets from Brother Ali & Evidence, Sallie Ford & the Sound Outside, The Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Broncho, and way more. Hit the links below and load your plate accordingly.… Read More
Article 2, Section 4: The President, Vice President and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from office on Impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, BRIBERY, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.

Would everyone agree that Donald “Bone Spurs” Trump attempted to “influence” the “judgment or conduct” of the President of Ukriane … Read More

The Report is short for “The Torture Report,” which is short for “The Committee Study of the Central Intelligence Agency’s Detention and Interrogation Program,” which is short for the 6,700-page account of one of America’s most horrifying and shameful stretches of history. Expertly distilling an infinitely complicated, infinitely disturbing chain of events, writer/director Scott Z. Burns follows the efforts of increasingly troubled Senate staffer Daniel Jones (Adam Driver, excellent as ever), who, under the oversight of Senator Dianne Feinstein … Read More
November, a collaboration between Portland comics writer Matt Fraction and French artist Elsa Charretier, came out earlier this month; tonight, Fraction will be at Books with Pictures to celebrate its release. It’s a release worth celebrating: November is good, and even if it feels like the start of something larger (probably because it is the start of something larger), it’s well worth digging into. I’ve read this first volume—subtitled The Girl on the Roof—three times … Read More
I’m working on preliminary ideas to revamp a split Access database. The first version encountered two serious issues:
- On occasion, network outages or even hiccups would cause the backend to become corrupted.
- New task creation sometimes assigns duplicate UIDs (we use custom UIDs that are a concatenation of task category, date, then numeric sequence) because the UIDs are formed by the frontend VBA. No validation for different frontends simultaneously creating tasks.
My supervisor is very set on implementing passthrough instead of linked tables to… Read More
Cannabis has a number of benefits for those who use it, including offering relief from stress, pain, insomnia, low appetite, and compromised libido. There’s also longstanding anecdotal evidence that it’s good for one of the most widespread and growing health issues: post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
A study released last week shows that those suffering from PTSD who use cannabis experience lower rates of depression and thoughts of suicide.
