This is, of course, incomplete. 🤷🏻‍♂️

y'ever feel like sometimes creators don't actually understand what about their work made it good?

Moving over to Jekyll has gone way smoother than I thought. I still wanna mess with the theme and customize some shit, but… yeah. If this works, then I'll probably do most of my blogging just right in Github's web editing UI, tbh.

I think I'mma rename my blog from "Garbled" to "203 Non-Authoritative Information". It's just such a perfect phrase and captures some of what I'd intended with the original title.

Apparently, if I'm using Jekyll, Github Pages will do auto-builds for me when I push to master. Which is pretty much exactly what I want. I've been using a SUPER old version of Octopress, but I'm probably due for a new site design anyway, so maybe I'll just port the posts over. Hopefully can also keep the same URLs. We'll see.

I think it might be a problem, though, to give it credentials to push to a repo? Maybe there's a way to do that and not leak push access all over the internet… 🤔

Meatpunks comes out tomorrow at NOON EST!! woulda been noon pst like usual but i am an impatient fucker

Relatedly, I wonder if I could set up something like Circle CI to regenerate and push my blog when I merge it to a certain branch (it's hosted on GitHub Pages). That would give me the edit-on-the-web use that I sometimes want, but still have the site be static. 🤔

Have I already talked about this? I have this big idea about what the plot for The Incredibles 3 should be. I've told a few coworkers and gotten positive feedback. And the last time, we were at a restaurant and the guys at the next table, when they were getting up to go, interrupted and said they should hire me to direct it. 😜 I shoulda write a blog post about it.

actually, systemd is the name of the inventor. you‘re thinking of systemd‘s monster.

Gooooooooooooooooood morning, bits and bytes. 🌇

I'm tired as shit because the 3yo is getting WRECKED by allergies and waking us up nights. Last night, asked mom: "Can you give me food to make a cough go away?" 😢 I feel so bad.

New pronunciation:
"#!/bin/bash" as "bashtag"

OK. I just had an idea. Follow me on this: Is Thor a D&D Cleric?

1. Uses a non-edged weapon.
2. Powers contingent on fulfilling a moral code laid out by a deity.
3. Has weird swears like, "By Odin's beard!" and shit.

Next up is The Lathe of Heaven by Ursula K. Le Guin. I don't know much about it, but I really like several of her other books, so…

I also got issue one of volume two of Catalyst in the mail today. That might be up after. IDK.
