Status Update

March 26, 2024
I’m actually supposed to be working on naming my hopeful new business right now, but I was poking around and realized that it’s been just over a year since I revamped the site, noving from WordPress to Hugo.

It’s been about two and a half months since I started playing with the Click & Grow (and it seems like a whole lot longer). I find that I’m enjoying the hobby, and I see no reason to stop.

I’ve mentioned before that it’s getting to be time for me to get a job. More precisely stated, it’s that an income would be a very nice thing to have. Unfortunately, I recently ran face-first into a psychological …

So my basil is still growing strong, as you can see. And that’s after I added the additional light arm to the Click & Grow, and also trimmed a number of branches off to give to my Mom for her cooking needs.

Every once in a while I like to do a round of maintenance on my homelab. This generally includes cleaning everything up, modernizing where I can, and so on. The beginning of 2024 seemed like an excellent time, but also a bit more …

Day 24. Three and a half weeks, and still looking good! Only a few more before I should have some fresh basil for my kitchen… My cats have become… interested…

I finally got around to finishing up the sharing stuff; look for the little sharing icons on the upper right of a post header or a project page. Note that I haven’t tested LinkedIn or Twitter; I use neither service and …

Happy New Year! Yeah, I’m a little late on this one. Some time back in April I got distracted (read: fell into a fiction rabbit hole) and stopped working on things, including this blog.
March 7, 2023
So I have to admit, four years is far too long between meaningful posts (I don’t count my nearly wordless mid-pandemic rant two years ago). Why have I been so quiet, you ask? Well, that’s complicated, and frankly, not at all …
