Dealing with public officials in small towns.
So, here’s a topic I never got to finish. It’s been sitting in my drafts for nearly a decade! Let me boil it down to a few key points: They are all they have, sometimes there will be conflicts of interest and they wear multiple hats even if they’re not great at every hat They […]
So BarkWeb CPHost BarkWeb or whatever it was called by the end had offered a lifetime hosting deal via AppSumo for $24 (or maybe more, recollection escapes me). The events that followed are surely a sign of why you shouldn’t trust lifetime deals for a service. A slap-dash transition from one server to the next […]
Look, its a new hosting setup. Four different webhosts in 2 years. Why? See the post above!
New Year, New Look, Maybe New Posts

We’ll see if it makes any dent in the numbers. Regardless, any drop is better than […]
Brewing the 15-minute IPA
With a boil time of 15 minutes, you’re getting a lot done. This recipe is designed mostly to test varieties of hops in a somewhat controlled environment. I add a small bag of specialty grains, in my version, to add just a hint of malt flavor behind the hops–I think it provides a better backboard […]
On Retropie problems..
RetroPies for Christmas!

For everyone else, especially if your planning to play […]
