Personal website switcharoonie

Since 2000 I've owned the domain. I've used it for various purposes over the years. One hope I had for the domain was that my family would be able to or interested in collaborating on it. It didn't work out that way and I ended up using it as my personal blog. That didn't quite sit right with me as I wanted the domain to be used by others, so along the way I picked up with a goal to make it my personal blog.


The end of an era, the start of a new one

Wednesday, May 1st, 2024, was my last day at Mediacurrent.

I started in May 2012 after being hired by the company's founders, Dave Terry and Paul Chason, who took in a wide-eyed Drupal geek who wanted to show people how to contribute to the community in a positive way, and fix all the bugs in contributed modules.


An apology for much of my tweets from 2016-2021

I'd like to apologize for much of my tweets from 2016-2021, I did not realize how much propaganda I had been subjected to and had internalized. I've been digging my way out from underneath it since then, what I've been writing and sharing since then is in response to that.


Friday. I go to make lunch for myself.

Realize I can't use the oven to heat my food as there's a chili cooking in it at low temperature. Figure I could make myself an omelette. Frying pan needs to be washed. Turn to the sink - it's full of dishes. Ask our eldest if he can load the dishwasher (it's his chore and he should have done it earlier in the day), am informed that the dishwasher isn't cleaning properly, though nobody told me. Look for the dishwasher manual to check its maintenance instructions. The manual is more of a pamphlet and says (paraphrase) "if these instructions don't work check the full user instructions".
