Love these SSG tutorials that are all "here's how to set up a blog with 2 posts"

Friend I have 598 date-specific content files and I'm not even the most prolific blogger I know. Your tutorial is a "draw the rest of the fucking owl" monstrosity.

So according to the quick test that was not COVID knocking me on my ass this week. Still waiting for results from the slow test, but there is the ever-growing question of WTF was that.

A dozen emails about the new time-tracking procedure, none of which include the URL. Great job on communication, gang.

Need to scoot my keyboard over cause Barry ain’t moving.

The COVID ripple effect is noticeably reaching us us with the good insurance. Booster shot appointment? Two months. Urgent doctor appointment? Next month maybe.

Again, for whatever weird reason I'm sticking with American Truck Simulator in Windows and in Linux.

Finally in-game long enough to buy a truck.

Got three or four blog post thoughts in my head on the Node.js puttering I’ve been doing over the last few days. Wrote an outline for one of them. Also, small-tech/jsdb is kinda nifty.
