Hello World!

Welcome to Friday!

We made it through the first week of the year!

A while ago I did a photo study of the Unispherte in Flushing Meadows Park.  This is the last photo from this series I’m posting for a while.

If I were a less honest person, I'd have my way to get rich:

1) Post a Job Ad on LinkedIn
2) Reach out to applicants on LI's messaging.
3) Ask the applicant fir their DOB, Location, and last 4 of their SSN
4) Reverse engineer the full SSN from that data
5) Sell that identity on the dark web
6) Profit

If I'm really lazy I'll automate it with a shell script.

(was just asked for that info in a char on LinkedIn before I was told the client name)


Greetings, Programs. Today I continue to strive for #peace and a feeling of #gratitude.

Today I present…..

Good morning world. Still struggling to find reasons to have gratitude in this crazy world. Today I present…..

Through The Unisphere

A while ago I did a photo study of the Unispherte in Flushing Meadows Park. Over the next few days, I’ll post some of my favorite shots from that photo study.

Anne and I have been watching “Maine Cabin Masters”, a cabin renovation show on Discovery+.

The other night in one scene they were liting the side of a cabin so they install some jacks to level the floor.  The next scene featured a worker named Jedi.  

Me:  You know, they should’ve used Jedi to lift the building.

Anne: Why?

Me He could use The Force

Anne: …

A friend asked about ulterior motives in going back David Tennant for a special in Doctor Who.  Here's my answer:

It's the "special episode" of ER where Cloony returned.

It's the wrestling show that books Logan Paul in a big match.

It's brining Spock back in Search for Spock

It's the local restaurant that hangs a "Under New Management" banner when they replace the General Manager.

It's bringing Sarah Jane back in School Reunion.

It's an attempt to get a look-in audience of lapsed fans. It's an attempt to generate buzz. It's a ratings grab. It's business.

Unisphere Sunset

A while ago I did a photo study of the Unispherte in Flushing Meadows Park.  Over the next few days, I’ll post some of my favorite shots from that photo study.

Now that I have my #Mastodon Instance up and running I'm thinking of how I better integrate my blog into the #fediverse.

My first thought was just to leverage the MastodonAPI to automagically post to Mastodon on node save.  I have that working now, this post will get posted to my Mastodon account when I save it.

I'm considering switching this out and use the Activity Pub #Drupal module to add the site to the fediverse.


I wear New Balance sneakers because they have proper arch support and my feet don’t hurt. A few years back, the CEO of New Balance made some comments agreeing with Trump’s trade policies. “Friends” didn’t understand that wearing NB wasn’t a political statement, it was a pro-walking miles pain-free in NYC statement.

#TIL - #mastodon Edition

When a post is retrieved by a federated server, it’s media files are copied and stored to the federated server.  I has assumed, wrongfully, that  media was served from the origin server.

This is why this instance is quickly eating disk space.  Although I don’t post much, I follow a lot of photographers all of whom are publishing a lot of images.

I need to setup an S3 compatible bucket in the next day or 3 and store media there.

After pushing my #Mastodon Instance’s media into object storage, I shrank the server it runs on to 1CPU,  1Gig Ram, 25Gig storage for $5.00/mo.  So far it's running fine.  For less than cost of Twitter Blue, I can have my own mastodon server, on my own domain and own my own data.
