This little feller is helping me lay the foundation for my retaining wall.

Wish I could’ve gotten closer.

Uncle SamThat’s how old the United States of America is.

Will we have a 249th birthday? Only if we elect Joe Biden. That will allow us to add four additional years to the count.

Happy Fourth of July.

“Democrats fearful that President Joe Biden will cost them control of Congress are mulling calling on him to withdraw from the race against convicted felon former President…”

All y’all are cowards!

Biden is our only choice. Get out there and rally the troops. There’s more to lose than your seat in the House or Senate.

Let’s see how Mrs. Fahrni and Taylor are doing in California!

Sucks to be them. 🤣 Having to deal with perfect blue sky and sunshine with a high in the mid-70’s.

@numericcitizen Do you have a link to a blog post about Ghost’s Mastodon integration?

I looked on their site for a blog and couldn’t find one. 😳

@manton On CoreInt you said something along the lines of “that’s why I’m not using Ruby on Rails” or some such because of the constant change.

Did I hear that correctly? If you’re no longer using it, what are you using?

I think Kim is excited for her and Taylor’s California trip. 😆

Caught a Durham Bulls game tonight with a bunch of WillowTree folk. Unfortunately the Bulls lost in extra innings but it’s a beautiful downtown and the ballpark is gorgeous.

I’m in the Durham WillowTree office for a few days for our WWDC get together for all our iOS Devs.

Should be fun!

@odd Texas has always been that state with an oversized ego just like Florida is where all the crazy people live. 😃

Of course I lived most of my life in California. I was born in a lovely, liberal, place.

My new home state, Virginia, is full of confederate loving racists. It’s a strange place to live. We’re only here because it’s where our grandchildren landed with our daughter and son-in-law.

If I could move back to California with my entire family in tow, I’d do it in a heartbeat.

@manton It’s just so infuriating to see a population of people revel in inflicting pain on others.

I don’t understand the GOP and probably never will.

All Americans, including Texans, deserve better.

@numericcitizen Way before. I wish we hadn’t abandoned the effort. We also had it running on PowerPC NT which never saw the light of day and I personally got it building and running on a DEC Alpha running NT. Nobody ever saw that but me. 😁

@numericcitizen Oh, don’t get me started on us not having a Mac version. There were a number of us who wanted that. We actually had a version running internally on Classic MacOS but it never saw the light of day. I wish I had some screenshots of it to share with you.

@starrwulfe It’s so relaxing. We take our dogs with us, hike, and generally disconnect from busy life.

We haven’t owned a camping trailer since 2005 when our kids were still in our home but now we have grandkids. It’s time to start back up! 😃

@numericcitizen I'm going to 100% disagree with you about Visio, although I haven't used it since 2003. I spent many years helping to build that app and I'm very proud of the work we did. I could see if feeling strange if you're a died in the wool Mac person. I find OmniGraffle difficult to use because I expect it to behave like Visio. 😄 One other thing. Are you talking about the web version or the desktop version? Thanks!
