Computers are all about mega-bites and giga-hurts.

Don't trust governments, when they claim their software works on Windows xp, 7, and 8. I tried Windows 10, 8, with or without compatibility settings, and xp. Turns out some people managed to write code that only works on 7.

We have a large crop of science fiction movies and series, which is great. But most of them seem to be about fighting, which is less great. And it doesn't have to be this way. Let me try to amplify a great science fiction series, right from the '60s, the Sector General by James White. It's about an inter-species space hospital, where doctors from many different worlds work together to save lives. It's a great read, and I wish it was adapted as a TV series.

In my experience, the most useful things I did (both for other people and for a later me) were always the things I did on the side, and never the main thing that I considered the most important at the time.

Embrace side quests, ignore the main plot!

Was just chatting with my neighbor about how she used to be able to read hex dumps of fortran and cobol programs "as easy as reading a punch card"

Humanity have decided the convenience afforded by automobiles is worth the million deaths each year. Certainly building more nuclear fission plants now to avoid recurring disasters is a much better deal.
