Elixir and Phoenix are really cool, and thanks to them I'm enjoying coding for fun for the first time in a couple months.


I bought the Matt Groening house. It came fully furnished.

Getting my car serviced for the first time since the pandemic started. I am an adult.


I used up all the energy I had for cooking on getting the kitchen clean enough to cook in.



I finished Kiryu's saga, all seven games of it, and I've moved on to Yakuza: Like a Dragon. I didn't expect to take to Ichiban so quickly, but he's such a nerd and I love him to bits.


Just started Mass Effect 3 this morning and I had forgotten about our new absolutely jacked boy we get in this one.


I think DocC is actually the thing I'm most excited about from this WWDC.


Brands, you're only allowed to change your icon to a rainbow if you also provide receipts of you giving a shitload of money to queer people.


I thought I was being good and getting my car registration renewed right before the deadline, but then there were late fees and it turns out I just plain forgot to do it last year and it's been expired for an entire year!


I took on too big a clean up project and now my floor is covered in old electronics.


I'm on PTO for the next two weeks! Very excited to do anything but work for a little while.


I got my second Pfizer shot today. Can't express how grateful I am to be able to be vaccinated. We need to make sure this is available to everyone, not just certain parts of the world.


I submitted my first port to FreeBSD tonight. Nothing big, just the BIND exporter for Prometheus, but I'm still excited to contribute.


This gets at the most ridiculous part of this Basecamp thing. Both Basecamp and HEY are products that facilitate people communicating, which means political issues are deeply important to the product.

I got a little Dell computer from someone on Craigslist. I put FreeBSD on it and set up a few jails, moved a few of the more stateful things off my Raspberry Pi cluster. It's a great little box and I love it.


The other day the person at the Arby's drive-thru asked if I wanted crinkle fries, as though the curly fries weren't the entire reason I was there in the first place.



Yes! Vaccine appointment booked for tomorrow! Put that Pfizer in me.


Colorado now has COVID vaccines open to the general public but it looks like there aren't any appointments available anywhere near me. Guess I'll have to keep trying.
