April Queso

  1. Taobao is some sort of marketplace like eBay or Amazon I guess. It's Chinese. So is WeChat which is some sort of Chinese Facebook Messenger/Facebook thing.
  2. I hate how the word bimonthly can either mean twice a month or every two months in the English language.
  3. tbh means "to be honest"
  4. Visual J++ is Microsoft's version of Java which no longer exists and Delphi is some offshoot of Pascal.
  5. www stands for World Wide Web
  6. .epub is an e-book file format.
  7. MFC (Microsoft Foundation Class Library) is a C++ library for desktop apps.
  8. INETA is the International .NET Association. (i.e. just another .NET User Group)
  9. MoviePass, bundled with iHeartRadio which allows one to listen to some radio stations online, has a price tag that has fallen under $37 per month. Go get it while it's cheap. If you see four movies in the next three months you are in the black.
  10. is another movie piracy site. Some of the kids I work with who use this stuff are telling me that the playback from these movie piracy sites has gotten choked down really slow. Is it a DDoS attack from Hollywood or just what happens when you don't have Net Neutrality?
  11. Solidity is another programming language and I think there is some Ethereum stuff that uses it though I don't really know what I'm talking about.
  12. Those maps on your iPhone haven't been Google Maps in a long time. The iPhone maps are now Apple Maps. You may independently download a Google Maps app for the iPhone from the App Store.
  13. Apple Lisa was an old desktop computer.
  14. Dr. Seuss (Theodor Seuss Geisel) came up with the term Nerd as best as I can tell. It's a goofy being in one of his books.
  15. Internet Explorer for Mac was a thing for a little while.
  16. Wire JS is a JavaScript IoC (Inversion of Control) container. I kinda thought HorseJS was something for that too, but the more I look at it the less it makes sense.
