• Voting

    In a democracy, voting is an inherent right, and any restriction on voting is merely a ploy of those in power, to keep power. November 26th, 2022 One of the most hilarious and disturbing things about the most recent mid-term elections in the United States is Republicans upset by the turn out of young voters.…

  • Black Friday

    The fourth Friday in November, just following Thanksgiving in the United States, is meant to signify the start of the holiday shopping season and typically comes with heavily discounted prices. November 25, 2022 Eight months ago, I made a list. It’s not a naughty/nice list, nor did I check it twice. The list consisted merely…

  • Enforcing Ports on Companies is Bad

    Enforcing Ports on Companies is Bad

    While it’s a no-brainer that switching to one port is a win for consumers, having a government entity enforce that solution on private companies discourages innovation and limits competition.

  • Do it again, years later.

    At a conference in the late 2000s, one speaker passionately spoke about not doing the same thing twice. Don’t read a book twice, don’t watch a movie twice, and don’t visit the same vacation spot twice. This advice is as foolish back then as it is now.  As we grow, we change. The way we…

  • Docker Desktop Update Notifications

    Recently, Docker Desktop made the decision to enforce a daily update notification for all users, which can only be disabled by paying customers. ?

  • Allow JSON Uploads to WordPress Media Library

    Recently I was working on a project that required the addition of allowing JSON uploads in the media library.

  • Fatherless

  • On The Road Again

    On The Road Again

    It has been an incredible rollercoaster of a year and I am happy to finally be able to leave our home while still staying as safe as possible. Thanks to our new Airstream. Feels good to travel and have some sense of normalcy.

  • Go Raiders!

    Go Raiders!

    I have always loved watching football, but never was a fan of a specific team. Back in 2018 I started following the Raiders and now I can honestly say it is official… I am a Raiders fan. Las Vegas Raiders FTW! ?

  • No Shoes @ Home

    No Shoes @ Home

    Floors get dirty. The cleaning industry knows this, and banks in billions each years for vacuums, cleaners and other fancy devices — like a robot vacuum — to keep floors looking clean. However, there is a better solution to assist in keeping floors at home clean: leave outside shoes at the door.
