"Do Not Ask Us About Sabre-Tooth Tigers, Tar Pits, Big Green Things With Teeth, Or The Goddess Czol."

For anybody with an account or website or dns or anything else on Sarin: I'm going to try upgrading the OS next weekend. There will be downtime. If things go poorly, it may be extensive.

NS2-4 will still be up, as well as the backup MX, but websites/shell will be down.

Man builds log cabin in the Canadian wilderness. This is so cool.

"Speak softly and employ a huge man with a crowbar."

Fuck me, it's in my joints. Can't move my left middle finger without stabbing pain; and the ring finger is starting to act the same.

Oh, yay, we've reached the swollen-lips phase of hives. Where's my flensing knife?

I bet the rec room could make a pretty good dance floor if we cleared out the furniture. Too bad we don't throw those sort of parties anymore.

I really should come down and listen to music in the rec room more often. The subwoofer makes all the difference.

Especially when I can crank it way up because nobody's home... That doesn't happen often enough.

Canary looks really nice. But I'm not paying $10 to find out if it IS.

Can anybody suggest a _good_ email client for mac/ios? Airmail has started marking random important mail as spam, and support's suggestions didn't help. I need something I can trust, until airmail is fixed.

It's always nice when things are non-destructively disassemblable. The first-gen Bloomsky almost qualifies.

Always feels kinda weird to me to hear a song I haven't heard in... well, over a decade anyway, and discover I still remember the lyrics.

Still can't decide on the public key thing. Any thoughts?

Reread A Miracle of Science this afternoon. Recommended, if you haven't.

"Well, he profits _one entire world_, for starters."

My public key expires end of next month. I'm trying to decide if I want to extend/remove the expiration, or revoke it in favor of a new key.

Also, trying to decide if i want to offline the master (in favor of subkeys in my yubikey) or keep it available on my main laptop.

The hard core crowd favor offlining the master, but I don't think I'm paranoid enough for that.

And once again Amazon's hire-randos delivery service has declared my packages (three of them this time) delivered, when they are not at my house.

I should just install a chute from the neighbor's house down to here.

It's in good condition and comes with a nice Case Logic case that fits it perfectly.
