Just found out my little bedroom community police department has an armored vehicle with an "LRAD". It was in the parade today and I got a chance to talk to the police about it. Turns out the most common use is when they're serving warrants. Police want armor when they try to arrest someone who has a history of shooting people. And they use the LRAD to announce themselves so the suspect can't say "I didn't hear them identify themselves as police".

THE END OF AMP!

"The good news is that, in May, this is all about to change. Part of the Google update is that all pages with high Page Experience scores are eligible to be in the featured top news carousel. This effectively means that publishers will no longer be forced to use AMP and can instead provide fast, rich experiences on their own domains."

I got a 2012 Mac Pro recently and managed to install Big Sur on it. It is surprisingly usable and peppy. Putting a SSD in it made it feel like new.

Whelp, stayed up until midnight playing Stardew Valley. Whoops.

There's a nice Thinkpad T460 setup on my local Craigslist for a good price...so tempting, but I don't technically *need* it...

She should be laying *in* this shark, but both cats prefer to smash it and lay on top of it. I don't get it.

I feel like I want to tinker with Arduino, but I have no idea what I want to do with it other than making lights blink.

This IKEA doll bed is the best purchase I have ever made.

I just created my first gopher file since about 1998. I'm digging the nostalgia and simplicity of creating a gopher phlog.
