Oh and my family and I have been on sabbatical for a bit. We bicycled the West Coast of the United States which you can relive through photos here:

Deleted my Twitter back in December of 2021 and took a long break from toot-like social media but I'm going to revive at least this account for short thought time. Hope all my friends here are managing the pandemic alright.

@d what did you think of Builder Book (noticed it on your pinboard)?

I asked Sam if he wanted to come get a babyccino and he said “grab me one,” so I guess being a teenager starts at almost 3 these days, cool, cool, that’s cool.

Where's the Mastodon for people who want to talk about Mastodon, (the service), microblog (the spec), and similar stuff? Also if people say "bikeshedding" at least once a day there, that's totally up my alley.

@d saw a t-shirt that I briefly thought said "wafer is life." In hindsight "water is life" was a more obvious choice but I guess I love you more.

Also, please make this shirt.

this post about "the evolution of modern web app architecture" on the heroku blog is... vaguely dystopian. not even saying it's inaccurate/bad advice but the language they use... "The constraints of the web’s request/response pattern led to poor user experiences. Imagine if every installed application on your computer had to re-render the entire screen whenever you clicked something!" yes a web of hypertext documents would be horrible! thank god we got rid of that notion

Apparently I cannot escape poor air quality due to fire smoke no matter where I go (on vacation in Washington State from Southern California)
