As we come up to the end of the month, it is a good time to mention that I have posted a weekly chapter for about four years now. While free to read, my writing is supported by ( and Typewriter Press ( among others.

I don't really do much with tiers at all, $1/month gets you access to all my works in progress, polls for the next projects, and my appreciation. I also try to listen to suggestions or requests to the best of my ability.

Well, Hobbs and Shaw was pretty awesome. I agree with someone said, it was a superhero movie without being a superhero movie.

One "nearly a mortgage payment" later trip to Costco and I think we're set for food for a few months, boys are at their grandparents, my FIL who had his toe amputated was very pleasant a half hour after his morphine, and I'm sitting down and watching Hobbs & Shaw without ever seeing any of the Fast and Furious franchise.

I need to seriously level up my docker skills. It took me a month of random fiddling that a docker compose file used 'postgresql' when it should have used 'postgresql:11' because the file format changed.

Today is a bit scattered. We woke up early to take spouse to their third run of the year. They started for the 8k but was having such a problem, they switched to the 5k at the turn off.

Then, as I was trying to get everyone to the finish line so see them come in, the boys insisted on going to the bathroom. Serially. After they got completely through the crowds.

It was fun.

But we're going to Costco, dropping off the boys for the night, and having a nice of movies and chill.

I just thought of a cake in the shape of a Hilbert curve to optimize for the best part of the cake: the edges, then I discovered someone already made it! I'm glad that there are brains out there that think about the same stuff as me.

The ghost walked across the room and through the wall.
"See?" I said.
My friend was deathly pale. "You didn't describe his clothes."
"You're the expert. I said I have no idea what period-"
"Next year."
"We're working on that collection now. We'll release it next year."

The writing group gave me some really good feedback on "Losing it Brick By Brick" and "A Missed Chance for Royalty". There were three new people, so I also got to talk about how magic worked in Fedran along with how I'm framing my writing for the next eleven years or so.

You can attribute that to this magnificent couple and the anime, Combustible Campus Guardress.

Tonight, I was giving a summary of my world and one point I made was that no teenager is going to save the world, that's the job for the older, experienced folks.

Probably one of the few places I break the anime tropes.

Sadly, this is what I feel about chat software.

It gets worse when I wonder how to have chat about my own stuff (fedran, software).

Ug, I just hit the Typescript-all-the-way verses C#/Typescript argument *again* for the long-term project I'm working on.
