"If you have any questions, send me some answers."

I honestly don't know what I was trying to say, but that's how it came out...

I can now officially add “getting hit by a car while riding my bike” as an experience. Luckily no major injuries, but it does mean I can’t ride this weekend or otherwise being outside at what little is starting to open up. Looks like a computer weekend coming up...

Well, I did fire up good ol' org-mode again and I keep accidentally inserting hjkl.

I think it is time to get back into using org-mode again.

“A car will never pick up the idea, no matter how much or how well it is driven, that is is supposed to avoid other cars and obstacles on the road.” - Gödel, Escher, Bach. 1979.

Times certainly change. I wonder what we’re currently saying is never going to happen that will be a reality in 40 years?

I’m considering start using a VPS and go on a self-hosting spree.

The first I connected to the internet was through a dial-up connection and I used the Gopher protocol. Yeah...

Turns out I'm a big fan of the Gateron brown switches. While they feel a little bit loose they do provide a nice smooth typing experience.

Turns out that Tresorit stores folder names and their sizes unencrypted and visible to them. Some of your user data (name, email, etc) may also be shared with their third party providers which include Facebook Ads and Google Analytics. While not a huge deal, that's probably still a pass from me.

Anyone have any thoughts on sync.com vs Tresorit? You get more storage for cheaper with sync, but maybe Tresorit is more privacy oriented? Choices...

While they are a available to read online I’m very excited to see that the boxed set of Richard Feynman’s Lectures on Physics is available for sub $100! This should keep me entertained for a while.

Are there any Linux distributions still using SysV init, or is it all systemd these days? Gentoo? Slackware? Old habits die hard...

I haven’t been using Linux seriously since my kernel development days, but the itch to do so again grows stronger every day.

Well. It's all fun and games until you don't have a bootloader.

The Fisher Bullet Space Pen is awesome until you put it down and it rolls away.

I'm considering replacing my Wordpress based photography website with my own static version, but I feel that might turn into a rabbit hole I won't get out of any time soon...

Header file dependencies surely is the root of all evil.

Feeling oddly nostalgic about mode 13h. I don't think I'll ever forget those two magical lines of my childhood.

mov ax, 13h
