dunno why I have such an affinity for the ’knowledge base’ pages of university IT departments. Regret at not being involved in my own school’s CS world maybe.

Tech news suggests Tumblr has lost a third of its users after the big content ban.

Does that mean if I go back to last year’s Jan-March and chart my followers’ posts, then compare to this quarter, I can get a rough guide of which online pals were really only on Tu for the XXX?

(not to yuck on anyone’s yum, it’s just… that’s not gonna be for me. I’m not a good audience for someone whose cultural touchstones are The Craft and ”Daria” and Moonpools & Caterpillars. I was there, I remember.

📚Read How to be Alone by Franzen last mo. Humor book w/ same title appeared in Libby as audiobook. Did I mean to reserve it? Don’t recall.

Pressed play. Author read her dedications - ”thanks” to a massive laundry list of mid-90s pop culture. MTV/movies/Lilith Fair/etc.

took me pretty much all day, but I just got Nextcloud fully installed on my Linode server.

I won’t completely stop relying on Dropbox until I have more confidence in this self-serve solution, but nice to have it working. (and as ever, learned more about Linux & centOS7).

Huh. I signed up with the Brave Browser’s ’attention token’ thing back around xmas and hooked up a couple of domains; I just realized I now have $50 worth of bitcoin in my account. (0.013 BTC).

today: successfully completed M220JS from MongoDB’s ”university.” contemplating whether to take their 4.0 cert test, too. am also on Day 35 of #100DaysOfSwift - using Codable to work with imported JSON; it’s starting to ~feel like ”real” coding, not just student exercises.
