Friendly reminder: Jesus loves you.

Gay or straight. Republican or Democrat. Cis or trans. Black or white. Pro-Windows or Pro-Linux. It doesn't matter. You're His and he loves you just the way you are.

Today I was setting up a 11 laptop. Plugged in an old HP Laserjet printer via USB for reasons and... it just worked. No popups. No drivers to download. Apparently even a blind, half-lame squirrel can find an acorn once in a while. Count me shocked.

Awesome lunch with my family and my folks at Perkins followed by a tour at a local museum. I'm not a history guy, but hometown history is quite interesting.

A view from a back road on my way to a client yesterday. I don't know about you, but I love windmills. I also learned yesterday how stupid huge they are. Checked later on and discovered it was a pretty well-composed shot, too.

"What if instead of an application, we had humans do the driving for you?"

You just invited chauffeurs.

"No, I mean like as an on demand thing."

You just invented cabs.

"No, I mean let's share it so you only need to go to easily identified pickup points."

Like public transit?

"No! I mean for long distances without all the agony of airports."

So, high speed rail.

".....why do you hate innovation?"

I literally didn't know anything about CONIKS until today.

I'm sitting here at my laptop, utterly shocked. I just finished reading about CONIKS, an identity system devised as part of a Master's thesis at Princeton. It's scarily similar to the identity system used by .

I'm a self-taught programmer with a bachelor's degree in Music Education. I had no idea I was working on a post-grad-level computer science project. Knock me over with a feather.

Cost Plus Drugs: Mark Cuban's New Company Sells Ultra-Cheap Prescriptions

Yeah, I know, Mark Cuban. But if you’re having a hard time affording prescriptions, check out his site. The price for some of the meds I looked at was less than the copay for the same meds at our pharmacy.

Happy to all my fellow admins! Powered by caffeine, we keep running the software held together with chewing gum and duct tape! LOL
