I bought this album when I worked for Barnes and Noble. The Borders location next to us had Gene Harris in store for a signing. B&N sent me over to check it out and see how it was going. I came back with a signed CD.

Like so many other uncreative middle-age dudes I've been letting my hair grow long while in quarantine. Which means I actually have to deal with it.

My current favorite thing to do is just comb it straight back. It's comfortable and out of the way. The only problem is that I look like I'm planning on eating your entire family.

Homemade from scratch, gluten-free pizza crust. It turned out pretty good! We're starting to figure this whole Celiac Disease thing out.

If you haven't played Hypnospace Outlaw and were online at all during the late 90's/early 2000's, you need to play it.

It's a short game, but well crafted, and I find myself thinking about it all the time. It made a lot of good points about early internet culture in a simple and charming way.

If you can't play it, at least enjoy the awesome cover art for Parts 1 & 2 of the OST.

my inexpensive standing desk converter on top of a "desk" that is actually just two cabinets with a desktop resting across them. I have a good feeling about this!

Somebody needs to file a JIRA ticket. Low priority.

Is this a thing I didn't know about? Posting your biography as a review of War and Peace on the B&N website? Are they using B&N as a dating site? Did someone's API get all messed up? Is this a performance theater type joke?

This is very weird graffiti. It looks like some kid from the Shire trying to act out.

One of the joys of my very occasional work from home days is that I get to see more things like this as they happen.

12 years running.

You can read all 50,000 words, and I'm going to keep adding to the story, albeit at a slower pace.

Don't you hate it when you're thirteen years late to an annual holiday?

The difference between "real science" and "something my kids made up" is getting thinner and thinner.

My 3YO daughter wrote her own character sheet. For those of you who don’t read toddler, she said her skills are:

- being nice
- flying
- being kind
- unicorns

Little weird for the sci-fi story her brothers were going for, but we made it work.

There are two problems people run into when they add logging to a project: not logging enough, and logging far too much.

Sometimes one distraction just isn't enough. That's where picture-in-picture comes in.

I'm both pleased that my iPad can do this and ashamed that I'm apparently incapable of focusing on anything.

Amethyst sky at morning. If you look really close you can see the moon up there. 🌙
