I made a very small change to this web page. See if you can spot it. I just made it a bit clearer.

I somehow don't think this person has read my blog. If you think that my blog on has something to do with homeowners insurance, that's ridiculous.

Can we just admit that "special gift guide" is little more than advertisements elbowing out the content that I pay a subscription for? And it's either paid advertisements that are masquerading as spontaneous "news" about products for me to buy, or it's unpaid advertisements. And we don't free adverts that in an online world already overrun with adverts.

I'm amused that my blog post "Cosmic Rays Did Not Change Election Results" got a lot of hits in November 2020. :) blog.paco.to/2017/cosmic-rays-

I had a PC that, for various reasons didn't sync time for a while. I fixed the reasons and it synchronised with a time server. It doesn't surprise me that error logs get some timestamps wrong. But you'd think that the TIME part of settings would get this right.

That's not how this works. That's not how any of this works.

Added a new key to my keyboard. I’ve had this for years and only just found it.

Slack has so many great corporate features. Surely everyone is excited to see this when they login.

Btw, I made a spicy chilli chutney that was awesome. I followed this recipe, but the second time I did it I just parboiled the chillis. They don’t have enough flesh to peel if you brook them. jamieoliver.com/recipes/vegeta

My pepper harvest is pretty good. Most of these are llasa peppers. Fairly spicy. I also have some sweet banana peppers. Those are mild (like bell pepper). Anybody have recipes or ideas? Chilli paste? Sauce, salsa? Chutney?

My neighbours rented 5 goats for a day to clear part of their yard. Because of course you can rent goats.

It is funniest when you set your first, middle, and last name to hahahaha.

I've got a cute embedded device. It used to be a "UK TV Everywhere" box. (They went out of business). It seems to be about the equivalent of a raspberry pi with HDMI, USB, and Ethernet. Anybody have suggestions on how I might get single-user mode and somehow get into this thing and repurpose it as a general little computing device?

Here's an idea I don't think we will see proposed again for a very long time... training on a cruise ship!

Paying workers anything higher than a shamefully low wage and keeping the place clean enough that they don’t all get sick was too expensive. So we are shutting the business down.
