I'm trying to achieve a lifelong dream of publishing a novel and I would really appreciate your help!
The family business is raising the dead; Ree has other ambitions. She’s going to resurrect the ancient magic of shapeshifting, but might doom her necromantic hometown in the process.
BOOKS & BONE is a librarians-and-necromancy fantasy with warmth and weirdness.
Thanks so much to everyone who has supported so far. 💙
I had a very strange thing happen with my #macbook on a flight. When I plug in the airplane power, the light on the charger turns green and appears to be charging. But the laptop screen immediately goes black and it won't wake up while plugged in. I can't use it plugged in. If I unplug, it works fine. Very weird.
Right, I’ll tell you what we’re going to do. We’re going to organise a conference in Europe for people working on ethical alternatives to surveillance capitalism that isn’t sponsored by surveillance capitalism. For people who aren’t afraid to pick a side.
Because I’ve had it with this bullshit and we need non-bullshit alternatives.
Watch this space.
Hi everybody, this is what pizza hut dot com looked like in January of 1997 http://oldweb.today/nsmac3/19970121013215/http://www.pizzahut.com
This will sound cruel and harsh and cynical. And it is. I'm not heartless. But this is evidence of a self-correcting problem. People who don't believe in vaccinations will have far lower survivability than the rest of us. And that will very literally solve the problem of people who oppose vaccinations. https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2019/01/23/an-anti-vaccination-hotspot-near-portland-suffers-public-health-emergency-over-measles/

I've been using unix a LONG time. I tend to run #FreeBSD when I can, #ubuntu when I must. Today I tried installing something that supported #debian and I thought "let's give that a shot." No. Just no. Why would you take a working operating system, rename every command, scramble the filesystem, and when you're all done, have exactly the same fucntionality you started with? Just with everything renamed. Life is too short to learn Debian. All pain, no gain.

I started visualising my #CloudTrail events on #AWS using #ElasticSearch. I blogged about it and put the code on Github.
