Google just told me to get an archive of my Google+ it was small and sad. Two of the 6 or so status updates lamented the fact it was a ghost town 😂

Watched "Thud Pilots" on Amazon prime yesterday - highly recommend if you're into military history. It's about pilots who flew the F105 Thunderchief (Thud) in Vietnam.

Lots of interviews with the actual pilots and detail on rescue operations (the Thud got shot down a lot for various reasons)

I also redid my site using the Hugo static site generator. Fantastic experience and I'm looking forward to learning how to customize further!

Finally got off my ass and wrote a blog post. More to come hopefully!

Thanks to @seven1m for the encouragement to write one on SSE

Another random tech thought for the day: using GNU Stow for managing things I would normally just put in my home directory has been awesome

Great for managing dotfiles too

Earl Thomas...I love the signing but that's seriously high risk/high reward! Let's hope he stays healthy...

For sites that only need minimal JS interaction, I like intercooler too:

Gonna be weird to see T Sizzle in another uniform this year...

I don't like Rust. Please stop asking my why sway isn't written in it and acting like it's the most obvious thing in the world that it should be

The news about Alex Trebek is just crushing. The man is a legend. I'm thinking Ken Jennings might be a good replacement...

I joined another Mastodon instance yesterday and it’s been down most of today. 😠

Thank you for your super reliable and up-to-date server! (I’ll be sticking around here.)

Happy birthday Casimir Pulaski! I feel like we weren't taught enough about this man's contributions to early America in school:

One of only a handful of people to be granted honorary US citizenship

Just wrote a CGI script for use on @SDF ...blast from the past!

Mastodon @ SDF
