IndieGogo sends me marketing emails that I do not want. No worries, I'll just follow the "unsubscribe" email at the bottom. Oh wait, it's just some underlined text designed to look like a link.

It's surprising that a dog his age can still run as fast as he does. Taken with a Nikon Z9, 200mm, 1/200s, f4, ISO 100.

For my 38th year I'll share the two things that I've learned in this life. The first is that you should always wear a shirt while cooking bacon on the stovetop. The second is that you should always wear shorts while using a string trimmer. Here's to another year.

The Supreme Court wants to focus on things that only exist in our history and tradition. Perhaps we and they should think more about what we want our country's future to be rather than what it once was.

The Supreme Court talks about taking the decision over abortion from the Courts and giving it to the States. What they've really done is taken it from the women of this country and given it to politicians. I'd rather trust a woman to make a decision over her body than any politician.

I did some photo organizing again today. How on earth am I supposed to organize more than 75,000 photos? Only about 5% of them are ones that I want to keep...

Overall that's...

Averaging 25mpg, 8.6 miles per dollar, and $0.12 dollars per mile.

Interestingly, the first Subaru Impreza cost about $17k, new, too. Just crazy.

Over the last fifteen years I've owned three cars -- two Subaru Imprezas and one Subaru Forester -- and three motorcycles. I recorded filling up the tank 447 times on those three cars.

I finally sold my gasoline powered car and got an electric car. I was unable to get any salesperson at any Hyundai dealer to give me the time of day so while I was interested in buying an Ioniq 5, I was able to buy Chevy Bolt. And with that I have bought my last gallon of gasoline. Well, at least for my car.

But wait, have I not been keeping track of every time I put any fuel into my cars for the past 15 years? Yes, actually, I had been keeping track.

What is with people who go to the "Customer Questions and Answers" section of Amazon and then reply to questions with useless replies like "I don't know!" I mean, do you think that you're being personally asked and you must answer?

I'm definitely hate-watching the newest season of Law and Order.

You would think that cellular providers in a large city like Seattle would be capable of keeping some quality of service during a large sporting event. It's not like it's an uncommon occurrence.

So I learned about this today for customizing my shell in iTerm and I wish someone had told me about this maybe ten years ago. github.com/romkatv/powerlevel1

Every time I leave Seattle and its mandatory composting and then I have to throw compostable items into the landfill I get really sad.

I used to use Flask for all of my projects because I wanted to tweak things just so. Then I realized that there is more to life than tweaking things so now I use Django.
