Give me a P... WEBP

With the release of Firefox 65 earlier this year, every modern (as in "Non-Internet Explorer") browser now supports WEBP, so I'm thinking that it might be time to start incorporating this image format into production work.  I remember following  the development of the JPEG 2000  format with anticipation, followed by forgetfulness.  But now it appears as if we do indeed have a new and shiny format to play with.

Linux turns 5

Earlier this year I noticed that Bash released version 5 . Now Linux turns 5 as well. While Linus did say  "that '5.0' doesn't mean anything more than that the 4.x numbers started getting big enough that I ran out of fingers and toes," it's still a round number and makes me think back about the various version numbers of the kernel that I've used over the years.
