home/Weblog & site updates
This blog serves mostly as a sort of “meta log” to list updates I’ve made elsewhere on the site, with some interspersed thoughts. If you’re curious about what I’ve added since your last visit, this is the place to check.
For more useful content, maybe take a look at the sewing/craft or tech sections.
Every year passed without a house with a terrace in the sun is another year of my life wasted.
Hey, wow, I’m honored! And I hope you appreciate that on my Links page I literally just have the word “Kickscondor” because I was too lazy to turn it into a link. Heck, I was even too lazy to just type a space. And today I told a friend about your site, but I just scribbled “Kicks Condor” on a scap of paper and handed it to him. That’s gotta be worth something, right?
Hey, maybe that’s the answer. Maybe we need to take the h out of href. Maybe we need to take the hyper out of hyperlink. If someone really cares, they’ll have to manually type the words into their search engine. That’ll stop those link cowboys!
Incidentally, I’m pretty sure I can handle at least 20 links before certain destruction—so feel free to keep on linking.
Yesterday was just a gorgeous day—sunny, temps above freezing, everything melting and flowing. I didn’t get to spend much time outside, but I walked down to the liquour store to meet Caroline on her way into town (quotes for wedding booze), and I savored the walk down.

I’m spending a lot of time and having a lot of fun building this site, but I’m a little bit concerned about whether I’ll actually make content to populate it. But maybe the more excited about the site I am, the more likely I’ll be to make content for it?
Edit: Or maybe half of the value is just in the building of it anyway.
I was thinking about how personal assistants—Siri, et al.—have almost exlusively female voices by default. I’m sure it’s because in general people tend to be less threatened by women and so are more likely to be comfortable with a woman’s voice living in their pocket. Isn’t that a little sexist though? Anyway, I changed my Siri’s voice to a male’s a few weeks ago, and my life is still fine.
