If you send email using `[email protected]` then think about why you're not having a human contact? Why are you sending email and missing out on starting a conversation? That's bad business. It also flags you as a potential spammer.

I’ve FINALLY setup a BookStack instance (trivial, once I sorted out a Let's Encrypt issue) for reference documentation. Find it at https://brain.vandragt.com. The ‘pages’ functionality for Known is pretty weak, and I think Bookstack will give me a good organisational structure by default, rather than hacking around in other systems. The Braindump will help me note down things I learn and collate my snippets.

I'll move my reference documentation from my site into it over time.

Tip: when opening food containers write the DoO (Date of Opening) on the container with a sharpie. Never guess if something is in date!

 

Ready to give up on Python for cli tools and switch to nim or crystal or whatever. Creating and distibuting a standalone executable shouldn't be this hard.
