Boom. Mayor of Norwescon. Sometimes it’s useful to still use a service so few others do.

[Beat It comes on the hotel PA] “You know how to tell we’re really old?” “How?” “This counts as Muzak.” “God damn you.”

Places I did NOT want to become mayor of: the allergy clinic

So of COURSE the Xolair becomes available on the day we’re moving in to the hotel. But at least they’re able to get me in this afternoon, before things start.

Mastodon: "Scream into the abyss, have it scream back at you, and make friends."

Pondering whether I want to consider rebuilding the Convivius UI in React. I've been using it for another project, and have been pretty happy with it. Just not sure it's worth the effort.

Do we _have_ anything equivalent to REPC up north? SoDo is.. a very long way away.

I still have this HP Color Laserjet 3500. Free to anybody who wants to come carry it away.

Otherwise I'll probably get it hauled to RePc or something equivalent.

Just discovered I left my android phone in airplane mode when I came back from San Diego. Three weeks ago.

Just once I'd like to be surprised by the recommendations of a board of directors regarding a stockholder vote.

My Kickstarter activity has dropped a LOT the past couple years, but let's review: 140 projects backed that funded in the past 6.5y, totaling $10,156; 3 'failed' (didn't produce reward); 120 rewards received; 42 received on time; 16 late and still unreceived.

Hm. Cloudflare is returning a 521 for exactly one site to exactly one of my servers. The other servers can get thru just fine.

Well, shit. Of all the people we kinda needed to be immortal.

I am home. I am not planning to stand or sit upright for a good long while. I’m thinking 2061.
