"And I realized, when you go through any endeavor, any journey, whether across town or to the moon and back, all that matters is that you share the experience with people that you love. That’s what makes life special, β€˜cause ultimately, that’s all there is. That’s really all there is."
-- Alan Bean, fourth man on the moon

Litany against NAT

apologies to Frank Herbert

I must not NAT.
NAT is the net-killer.
NAT is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my NAT addiction.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the NAT has gone there will be a proper firewall.
Only IPv6 will remain.

I have my phone set to auto-deny any number that is not in my contact list to combat the ever increasing amount of spam I've been getting. Unfortunately there is one insurance scammer that has taken to leaving voicemails. Multiple VMs a day for the last two weeks.

I contacted my provider about disabling my VM box altogether. They do not support this. You can, however, redirect missed calls to another number instead.

I now send missed calls to:

Eat Rickroll, spammers!

Planned: tinker in morning, eat lunch, use energy bounce to get yard work done.

Actual: *fwump*

Guess I'll go to bed early and try it again tomorrow.

Even if you are fully vaccinated, the CDC recommends against holding a meeting that could have been an email.

Dear Mattermost: I am running the latest Extended Support Release. Putting a big dialog in your Android app telling me that I need to upgrade my server for compatibility is not cool.

(Note: This is a rant of annoyance, not a call for alternatives.)

Checklist for programmers working on almost any web site that processes peoples’ names, even if it is just in the login & profile sections. The upshot of this is most of the clever ideas you might have for parsing and making deductions from a person’s name are probably not generally useful and should not be attempted!

tired: toss something in the microwave and warm it up

Only Footnotes is the most daft book I've ever put out. Not in a good way.

I just created as a place for general digital voice and data chatter. A bunch of us kept going off in the weeds on the M17 chat and the project lead got annoyed with us πŸ˜ƒ

Announcing Meme It So! It's a Star Trek The Next Generation Meme and GIF Generator, inspired by Frinkiac.

It has every line of dialogue spoken on STTNG tied to screencaptures. Which makes it good for looking up lines as well.

People are mocking the Canadian Olympic uniform for it's faux-punk look.

But I'd take faux-punk over the USA's aggressively bland preppy look any day.

Weather forecast:
Today: High 69Β°F
Tonight: Low 42Β°F

Is that a good omen?

so NASA is getting ready to upgrade a linux box on mars to fix their helicopter...

The advantage of running your own mail server is you know that

"You're over your email quota, click here!" emails are fake.

I present you: mosey culture (as opposed to hustle culture)

Our goals are out there and we work toward them, but we take our time.

"Someday I want to achieve my goal, but for now check out this pretty flower I have 🌻 . I'm gonna stop and enjoy it before I mosey on to my next task."

OK, in order to re-live a tiny bit of my childhood I'm going to need an Action! [1] ROM for my emulator so I can compile and run the air hockey game [2] I used to play.
