What camp did you take the kids to? So... how many kids do you have at home with you and the wife right now? Just one, right? You have 4?

"But - she did call me later to apologize - which is literally a first."

Awww yeahhhhh. I love it when improvement like that happens.

My wife is traumatized because her father was kicked out of the house for misdemeanor-level bad choices. So she worries that if she ever screws up it'll be cataclysmic. I'm not sure where the chicken or egg of anxiety is in that question, but basically she hasn't been admitting fault when she's nervous, which is when she mosbehaves. But (praise Allah) she's been apologizing sooner and sooner after her outbursts. Last night it was only two hours! XD  One of these days I'll be able to tell her "you're behaving in a way you would never accept from anyone, which means you know it's wrong" and she'll agree with me. Maybe in 30 years, idk. 

We have six kids and we've been home since Saturday night. It was a Model UN thing. I'm an anarchist, but experience with amateur politics is even more important when you're not outsourcing it to some foppish legal rhetorician. They had an amazing time. No consequences and yet a real glimpse into bizarre human nature. They learned fast and strong that rumors are unreliable and people almost always seek unstated goals.

My wife is generally not prone to the kind of neurotic, insecure behavior that plagues a lot of females - and actually has more distaste for that kind of behavior than I do - so she has a lot of trouble making female friends. 

But, the older she has gotten - the more frequently irrational she has been, in particular with me. It has gotten so bad even my daughter has noticed it and spoken up about it. 

A lot of times, she'll become so insistent on something that has no bearing with the reality of something that happened, I won't even bother to argue with her about it. Inevitably, something comes up that reveals that her memory of the event was completely incorrect. No matter how many times that happens - she'll insist the next time that I'm the one who has it wrong. 

My memory, going back to when I was a toddler - is pretty consistently on spot. I'm not a photographic memory - but - I'm probably just outside the gates of that ballpark. Most people aren't even in the same State that the game is being played. 

I worry about her - because her family has a history of dementia and Alzheimer's - and sometimes I wonder if some of her more abrasive, irritating behaviors that are developing could be early onset symptoms. There isn't any good way to approach that with a person though. I'm may be in for an interesting ride in the winter of my life. I suppose if that is how it turns out, it is just me finally paying interest due for an undeservedly charmed life so far.

that appears only to the orig poster. To whomever wrote this citadel
and webcit thing... do you have ANY idea how difficult it is to
retroactively implement a message edit feature that doesnt break the
shit out of the whole goddamn bbs? I am starting to think it just
might take far less time to port over the citadel code to php and
mysql or even mongodb and just leave little feeder fingers for the
text cit client. To be honest, the architecture is great. However...
I want to use modern tools to develop this further. Maybe someone
wants to join me and fork the code. I I wish I had the knowledge I
have now but at age 14 with zero to no real life responsibilities. I
would have stayed awake a whole week to release it.

I've had the same thought. I began writing the API for a BBS in Ruby, then I had to take a break from programming. This happened in 2018, but I still have the code, ready for me to return to it. I can't handle the web stuff but can do the text interface no problem. Maybe one day...

Well, we didn't call them "Forks" back then, but this is how all the SacCit/Asgard/Novucivitas stuff happened in 916... people taking original Cit80, Cit86 code and making their own localized variants that had the features they wanted. 

And it looks like the two of you are set to make a Webcit/Text Client fork. Regional barriers have been broken down. I don't know that this makes it easier - because it is far more difficult to create a "local" Citadel community now. We're all global, and we're competing with all the other global social media.

Yes. I will write it from scratch in Ruby using a modern JSON API and an SQLite3 database. I feel kind of like Rip Van Winkle though looking at it again after three years. First I need to finish my ham radio logger, then I'll get to work, maybe in the autumn. That sounds about right.

Good news is, that will probably never happen to you again if you remember your password.
