Pretty Good Hat

I’m getting incrementally better at Star Wars: Squadrons. It has cross play, so if any micro.friends are down to try blowing up some capital ships together, well, Red 5 is standing by. 🎮

Likely not on the radar for most of my academic, stats and data sci friends: the Tableau conf is free and online this week. While the tool may not be in your wheelhouse, it’s almost certainly in your institutional/civic infrastructure. Good oppty to see the conversation here.

Gotta take the little satisfactions where I can find them these days, and I just refactored the shit out of this dishwasher load.

Okay, Star Wars: Squadrons is fun because flying spaceships with lasers is fun. But I’m utterly awful at it. Oof. 🎮

The documentation and process of trying to inherit a backblaze backup on a new Mac is a special kind of terrible thing. I haven’t been this stabby in a long time.

Rapidly developing strong negative feelings about the Touch Bar.

Photo of a row of trees with blue, cloudy sky. The leaves have turned brown and gold. In just a couple of days these leaves have turned even more brilliantly to autumn. This row of trees used to be my barometer for autumn, but I don’t drive past them every day like I used to. Now I catch them on my walks with the dog a little less frequently. I’m happy to see them changing with the season, and more than a little wistful at the time that has passed this year.

I finally sat down and solved a problem that’s bothered me since I put up this site, and that’s to increase the file upload size limit for my media endpoint. No more cropped/resized photo uploads for me! Maybe now I’ll even build thumbnails and a lightbox.
