Pinned toot

Okie doke. Moved my URL shortener linkcho.mp and its associated redirector domain cmp.cx to noc.org for DNS and monitoring.

I have a lot of faith in the guys running that and this is really the only project I have that is critical to people other than myself so it is a good candidate. (to be clear, not involved in any way).

Free 14-day trial. Give it a whirl!

Ah, Clean Browsing. Nice UI. I am a junky for data and stats on DNS.

Disclosure: friends run it, but I am not involved personally.

The mayor of my town gave me a certificate for my 80th birthday one year. I am nowhere near 80.

It seems the town rules state the town can give an official certificate of recognition for 80th birthdays and above. The rules don't stipulate that the certificate can't be given in advance of said birthday.

I think about that a lot, and I think that's the kind of political shenanigans I can get behind.

LOL, 😳 ... I just love the solution that they came up with.

Went to the eye doctor today to talk about contacts.

Dr: there's all sorts of fancy contacts now. You can even get those transition ones that turn dark in the sun.

Me: those don't work well for me. The don't work in the car because the windshield filters UV. And they shade over in my house because my 100-year old windows don't filter UV. And they never revert fast enough. I'll pass.

Dr: OK. Plus they freak out people around you because your whole eye turns black.

Me: Please order me a dozen pairs.

As much as companies like Mint and Truebill would like it to be true, "subscription blindness" is not a thing. It is a manufactured problem to get into your most personal information: your bank and credit card data.

Death/mental health. 

Levelling up on mental health, finally. After my dad died in November, I just couldn't get back up. I wasn't completely destroyed, but dread hung on my every waking moment, lurking in the background. And I became preoccupied with my own aging and what my death will look like.

The most unexpected thing was the vague feeling of loneliness. This person who had been in the background fabric of my life forever was suddenly gone.

At some point, most of us will go through this. Tell people about it. Someone in your circle has gone through this. You're not alone. DM me if you don't have anyone. I'll listen to you.
