Admiral McRaven, who commanded the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, writes, in a letter to Trump:

“A good leader tries to embody the best qualities of his or her organization. A good leader sets the example for others to follow. A good leader always puts the welfare of others before himself or herself.

Your leadership, however, has shown little of these qualities. Through your actions, you have embarrassed us in the eyes of our children, humiliated us on the world stage and, worst of all, divided us as a nation.”


Word-finding game — Web & mobile — JavaScript, React

Ogle is a free word-finding game for the web and mobile. It derives from a tabletop game you’ve probably played, but the pace is much faster. Play it now.

I created the first version of this app years back, when I was learning C#. I created this version when I was learning React.

Ogle is a progressive web app (PWA), so you can install and use it on your phone much like any other app. If you navigate to the play address, your phone should offer to install it. Your phone’s browser will also display Install app (or similar) in its page menu.

If you find a bug, let me know.
