Blows my mind that terabyte micro SD cards are just around the corner.

I just rewrote my website in the style of a unix man page. I'm quite happy with how it turned out.

In the past when I've made an architectural decision, the choices and tradeoffs are scattered between Slack history, PR discussions, and code comments. It's hard to track down why some decisions were made.
