How async should have been

In the last few years async keyword and semantics made its way into many popular programming languages: JavaScript, Rust, C#, and many others languages that I don’t know or don’t use.

Of course, Python also has async and await keywords since python3.5.

In this article, I would like to provide my opinion about this feature, think of alternatives, and provide a new solution.

Blogging and me

If you’re reading this, you are now at the most recent home for my blog: but this isn’t my first rodeo. Blogging as been a part of my life since my privileged bum got a computer and internet in the early 2000s. For some reason I really thought the whole world should read what I had to say about myself and The Wayback Machine is there to remind me that everything you do on the internet, stays on the internet forever.

The Goodbye Man

In the wilderness of Washington State, expert tracker Colter Shaw has located two young men accused of a terrible hate crime. But when his pursuit takes a shocking and tragic turn, Shaw becomes desperate to discover what went so horribly wrong and if he is to blame.

Shaw's search for answers leads him to a shadowy organization that bills itself as a grief support group. But is it truly it a community that consoles the bereaved? Or a dangerous cult with a growing body count?

Undercover, Shaw joins the mysterious group, risking everything despite the fact that no reward is on offer. He soon finds that some people will stop at nothing to keep their secrets hidden . . . and to make sure that he or those close to him say "goodbye" forever.

In the evening I started in The Goodbye Man, a Colter Shaw Novel by Jeffery Deaver. This is the second Colter Shaw book. I named the first one, The Never Game, a page turner after I finished it the 23rd of July, 2019.
