'release post dump' and other musings



At work I receive many "system monitoring" emails. I ignore about 99% of them, but the subject of some do cause one to wonder sometimes. For example, "release post dump".

What is being released?
What is being posted?
And, well, I don't want to know what is being dumped.

We have been blessed with some cooler weather yesterday, today and into the weekend.


Why do weather forecasts show the next day's low as today's low?
The 60 for "Today" is tomorrow morning's low.
The 63 for Saturday is Sunday morning's low.
This is just annoying.

Anyway, if I recall correctly, most people post about running on this community. There does seem to be one dissenter, but we won't shun him.

Newspaper headlines are getting odd. "A robber drove off with a Matthews woman’s truck. Her dog was still inside." Why not just, "Matthews Woman Truck and Dog Stolen"?

"Starving housecat found cowering on NC mountain peak. A rescue group saved him." Shouldn't this be, "Rescue Group Saves Housecat On Mountain Peak"?

I don't get the sentence format. Is the second sentence supposed to be a punch line or hook of some sort? 

Here are some photos I took on this morning's bike commute.

Our weather they put the low first...but it still refers to the low that night/the following morning which I agree is unhelpful.

I used to get an error message on a lab instrument computer that "the children will be terminated". IT assured me all was fine. Riiiight.....

Glad I'm not the only one. It should be listed as low/high/low. I have to go to the hourly forecast to relieve my confusion.

And just who is Matthews Woman anyway, Matt?

Maybe Matthew's woman was stolen too! The same guy probably took the cat to the top of that mountain too.

Yep. If I could customize these things, I'd just show the temp at 5am, noon, 5pm and maybe 9 or 10pm.
