Rolled out the new-year, new-look blog this morning. In the process, I accidentally revealed some keep-secret! credentials in Github, nearly deleted the entire previous year’s codebase, and lost (then found) the last few days’ posts. Still a WIP but at least it’s out before February 😝

Librarian: “And these are for check out?”

Me (to self): what? I just handed you two books and my library card what the hell ELSE would be happening here?!

Roar of fighter jets hitting the afterburners overhead is setting off my new Ring Video Doorbell. It’s… not great.
