If you’re not trying to pad a resume, one of the best kept secrets to being quick with a computer is to just use “complete” programs/primitives.

Unfashionable programs with low ecosystem churn that allow quickly and predictably producing similar quality software/architecture as modern high churn ecosystems are “complete”, .

sometimes it’s amusing to stumble upon the latest centralization/decentralization debate. You could argue technically against centralization, , and censorship until you’re blue in the face.

Decentralization is pretty much a solved technical problem, but for very special non–technical reasons everything only gets more centralized from this point onwards :-)

This blog is really really good for robust usage of Nix/NixOS. I stumble upon it every so often. Another excellent blog is “How to Learn Nix” which explores in excruciating detail the painful parts of nix and its documentation. Discovered that one recently.

If you’re curious as to why I’m mostly just pulling Bing Images, well… it’s one of the more broken feeds. The feed from web.dev is a good reference too, but Bing guarantees one image a day. This allows slowly coming to terms with my poorly written and inefficient templates.

One reason my web traffic statistics are public is to demonstrate why having a website might not be worth your while. Sometimes I’m asked to make a website/application but the person asking is none the wiser on Internet trickery and deception.

You think you want a website, but what you’re really looking for is marketing (network effects) for your product or skill set. It’s great when a sad ending is averted.

The “CSS router” has always been quite the clever trick for navigating sufficiently small sites. This site uses it to scroll switch pages, and portable.fyi gets clever with visibility :target switching. Do it just right and no one notices unless they “inspect the elements”.

It’s always humbling when I get around to reading a web related spec. and have a lot of functionality. JavaScript’s not bad (it’s the easiest part of web development) but gives you just enough rope to do super silly things like reinventing all built in browser functions.
