The Green Mountain State.
I celebrate the guy's entire catalogue.
Wherein I get mad at computers and retreat to my yard.
🦅🇺🇸🎆. Or not, we’re just bumming around the house. If we’re lucky we’ll see some fireworks from the back deck.
Oh this one will be a simple project....
The "no not salad" days of Summer.
A little bit of everything, but only some of the time.
Vacation all I ever wanted, vacation, had to get away.
Notes for the week ending May 30, 2021. Got older, read a book, did some work.
What happened this week, May 27 - May 23, 2021.

Nearly post-COVID life.
Little less noise on the home page.
Yet another Strat made nicer.
Remnants of the past from my parent's attic.
Thoughts on work schedules, pre and post pandemic, and how much you can expect from a 🧠.
I don’t follow the Red Sox nearly as closely as I used to, but I at least knew today was opening day. Or, was supposed to be, I saw it was cancelled. The last time I was at Fenway for opening day was 2009, and the weather was about the same, low 40s and rain / something that looks like snow but lands as rain. It was the middle of three events at Fenway that were each so miserably cold that I gave up on going for at least five years.
Last March, there were no planes. The sky was silent and empty. It occurred to me that in a lot of places, the sky is always like that. But here, it was immediately noticeable that the planes were gone.
A guitar cable and a kid.
One year of working from home, or whatever this last year was.
I’ve had an idea floating around for a while: MDX is great, but I hate all of the steps around configuring / building React components with it. If I’m writing Markdown, HTML is valid in Markdown, and Web Components are valid HTML, so why not just stick Web Components in Markdown and call it a day?
Some notes on moving an existing Git repository into a Rush monorepo structure.
Why I switched the content editor on this site from Netlify CMS to Forestry.io.
When I was learning to be a web developer it was beaten into my head that if you were building a site and loading 3rd party scripts on it (e.g. jQuery, Bootstrap), you should load them from a CDN because if a user on your site had been to another site that used jQuery (likely) and they used the same version of jQuery (somewhat likely), and that other site also used the same CDN for jQuery (i.e.
https://code.jquery.com/, which was pretty likely given we didn’t have as many widely available CDNs back then), then the browser would pull the version of jQuery you were requesting from the cache instead of downloading it again. Everyone wins! Except the first site to request jQuery that a user hit with an empty cache.
Dance kitty, dance.
This post has no description!
I’ve been lazy about putting a new about page on this site, because I wanted to make it look better than the plain text wall I had in the last design. I decided since I’m sitting at my home desk almost always these days, I’d make an interactive version for you to play along with.
Days after, or even the day of the 2017 inauguration, I was in North Station and someone was singing just the chorus of “FDT” over and over.
I’ve saved this screenshot for the next time I need to have a debate about dropping older browser support. It’s from My PlayStation, and the browser is Safari (desktop and mobile!). Literally no way to view your account on an iOS device without downloading the app. Some light Google-ing says there’s over 100 million people with Playstation accounts so it’s unlikely I’m the only person annoyed by this.
