Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition, I found my GitHub recovery codes I am so happy right now!
Dear the Facebook: You are out of your mind if you think I’m going to buy your new smart speaker that combines the Amazon Echo with a camera that follows me around the room while I talk to my Facebook friends. Seriously? I mean, really, you’ve had so many problems with privacy and data protection and selling data to the highest bidder that I’ve just quit counting, and you really think I’m not going to go out of my way to persuade my friends and loved ones not to buy this thing? I think I need some of what you’re smoking because that is some high-grade shit right there. I’d rather chew on broken glass than buy two spy boxes in one and put it in my house.
It’s late and I have not had dinner yet and my lunch was small so I am having chicken alfredo with motzarella and a salad with jiro meat and a chocolate brownie. @billboules is right Uber Eats will get you in trouble.
The Mormons are doing another social media fast, and I think this is a wonderful idea. I have two conferences this week that I really should pay attention to for work, but I think regular breaks from social media is a practice worth adopting.
I needed more than 280 characters to handle this. No, I will not shut up. I am not guilted by my synagogue into publicly practicing my faith for curious Christians. In the WordPress community I am treated as an equal and if people have questions about my blindness they work to build and maintain a relationship with me first. LGBTQ people don’t ask other LGBTQ people to publicly perform for straight people, let alone guilt them into it. People on the autism spectrum are still fighting to be recognized as equals and they sure as hell aren’t guilting each other into publicly performing for the rest of us. If you want to play the Meet The Blind game have at it, but telling the rest of us to shut up and remain silent because you don’t want to deal with the fact that we’re actually deeply offended by this is about ten steps too damn far.
I think I am going to watch the stars version of Spartacus, so I can watch gladiators murder Romans.
Chris Shiflett and I were talking recently about blogging and how Twitter had sucked some of the life force of it out for both of us. Ideas that might have become blog posts were getting distilled …
Current status: Taking the huge cooking folder that’s been living in my dropbox and migrating it to my personal website which now has a recipe post kind and template for same. This will help with reorganizing it and cleaning it up. Will likely canibalize the cookbooks too.
I just finished Control Alt Revolt! by Nick Cole and I will probably write a review with spoilers because I have never so gleefully rated a book one out of five stars in my life.
Back home, and there are two beers in the freezer because I want them to be as cold as possible when I drink them in a few minutes.
Cigarettes and beer.
I do not have any performative tricks prepared for this year’s Meet The Blind month. There are certain games I am unwilling to play and this is one of them. I’m too busy living my life and running a business and performing for others is too much extra effort.
From here out, updates will be irregular.

Not withstanding my overall agreement with you on this specific issue or on criticism of the NFB in general, I think the assertion that the NFB has accomplished nothing is unfair, and the pollemical tone of it risks alienating the rank and file of the organization.
Area conglomerate of loud and obnoxious blind people has trouble understanding how standards bodies work and how organizations are represented on same. More at 11.
So there’s a Trump rally going on right now at which he’s mocking and imitating Christine Blasey Ford. Shit like this is why I viscerally loathe him as a human being and wouldn’t so much as shake his hand or address him by title if given the opportunity, let alone vote for him.
Today is one of those days when staying in bed curled up with a good book would have been a much better idea than getting up and working. I’ll probably take a nap later on.
Having my ear taken care of.
