Heartening to see movement from #flickr. Feels like there is a little bit of energy circulating there lately. Latest announcement is around In Memoriam accounts and maintaining Creative Commons works in perpetuity.
Thanks @advcyclingassoc for the reminder about this new GAP/CO trail video. Watched it yesterday and was reminded of what a great time I had riding the C&O and can not wait to ride the GAP now! https://www.wqed.org/ride #adventurecycling #cando #bikecamping
Safety Dance comes on when I’m out riding and all of a sudden some part of my brain is looking at Casio watches in the Service Merchandise catalog.
Interesting approach from Spotify here on explaining their position w/r/t Apple. I see one long thread from the 19th century Railroads to the 20th century’s Internet Explorer/Microsoft anti-trust case to the issue of app-store revenue in the 21st century. Interesting times.
Picked up some new #StealYourNavesink stickers. Will bring some out to upcoming gigs so hit me up! #redbanknj #deadbank
Some really good deals on Philips Hue bulbs on Amazon right now. According to camelcamelcamel.com at $10, this is the cheapest they’ve ever been. @tweethue #homeautomation
Got outside for lunch today. Stoked.
Good reporting from the New Yorker on Fox/White House. Back in middle school I remember learning about Vremya, the Soviet-era state-run news channel and thinking to myself If the citizens know the channel is just propaganda, why do they still watch it?
As a result of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), for the tax years 2018 through 2025, you cannot deduct home office expenses if you are an employee. THANKS TRUMP!!!!
I’ve lost count of how long I’ve been gigging with this amplifier. At least 10 years. Maybe closer to 15. It’s played hundreds of shows, that’s for sure. And it has never let me down. I’m thinking about selling it because I am too old to carry it around any more. It’s not that it’s […]
Cool to hear @manoushz covering the decentralized web. Or what I like to call “2006.” Also didn’t realize that Mozilla was in the podcast biz. Anyway, here’s Manoush give her a listen on IRL.
Just had to restart ntp as it was causing a CPU spike at 100% for hours. It’s like that time the really quiet kid in class all of a sudden has a total freakout.
In trying to harden my WordPress install that’s hosted on Linode I decided to enable https for encrypting the login page. At first I just went with the old self-signed certificate route and it was fine but boy did I have to jump through some hoops to get iOS/my iPhone to play nicely. Then I […]
Playing with micro.blog and sunlit.
I think this explains why the stink is getting better!
TL;DR, if your paradigm PDR-10 isn’t powering on automatically, check the fuse. It can be easily accessed by removing the back panel of the subwoofer. Sunday morning and I had the house to myself for a few hours so decided to listen to my favorite recording of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony. Firing up the 3rd and […]
The other day Amazon put several of their Amazon Dash buttons on sale for $1.99. I picked up a few. The first project I tackled was to get a Dash button to let everyone in the house know that the dog has been fed. This was pretty easy. Someone feeds the dog and presses the […]
I like the hypnotic quality of the instrumental (National resonator guitar) that leads up to the very short lyric part (which is great in its own right). Feels like a combination of atmospheric and folk at the same time. Not that they’re mutually exclusive but listen and you’ll see what I mean. Here’s a live […]
Spent a lot of time yesterday waiting for sql inserts to load and thought, hmm let me change my desktop background image. From there it was all down hill. Rabbit hole after rabbit hole, looking for vintage Mac icons. I even resucitated DragThing, forgot what a great application it is. Anyway, back to work.
