I gave a talk about Shillelagh ( last month, and I gave the exact same reasons for learning and using SQL!

"SQL is a mature standard, well established, well known, easy to learn, and declarative."

I've just finished writing the initial draft of HTMLite! Went through and added links to all the other specifications I cited! Whilst incorporating some other feedback I've received. Added a new appendix to hold duplicates of all those links.

I'm sure there's plenty of cleanup and proof-reading left (any cryptographers want to fix my <keygen> specification?), but I'll back off for a bit now in favor of others.


It's crazy how much of US politics is determined by 2 untranslatable words: gerrymandering and filibuster.

Ordered a new keyboard and more memory for my 10 year old Thinkpad T420. The plan is to run on it, and use it for the Fediverse, Gemini, email and my blog.

I also have a T480 that I've upgraded recently — added more memory and upgraded the trackpad. I really like how the old Thinkpads are serviceable and upgradable.

Google has the habit of killing products and replacing them with worse substitutes.

I used Google Play Music because I had it for free with a YouTube Premium subscription. Google killed it and forced me to switch to YouTube Music instead.

But YouTube Music is horrible. It doesn't even get "repeat 1" right — it will play half of second of the next song before repeating the initial song.

Is there any music player that syncs with my Bandcamp collection? I think that would be perfect for me.
