Trump unmoored from even the accountability of having to answer to voters is a terrifying thing. I am grateful that we have only 27 more days of this, rather than 4 years.

With all our services online this year, I have been doing nonstop video recording and editing all day long. I. am. fried.

Holy moly, Owncast is really taking off with the 0.0.3 release!

Almost 1000 stars in a single day for github.com/owncast/owncast 🙊

Hackernews front page, #1 on several sub-reddits: r/selfhosted, r/golang, ... awesome stuff!

Someone even started streaming public domain movies 24/7 on their Owncast instance: movies.shiftpop.com/

Check out the Owncast directory to find more instances: directory.owncast.online/

I’m grateful to see the health care workers in my community talking up the COVID vaccines, backed up with a detailed discussion assessing risks and benefits, leading to the conclusion that getting the vaccine when it becomes available to you is the best thing you can do for your family and your community. I don’t know if medical training includes courses on public relations, but for better or worse, it does seem to be part of the job now.

Our local schools have the ability to switch to online instruction, but they're taking a snow day tomorrow to give everyone a mental health day. Good idea.

I am pretty sure that I can’t get away with describing Mary as a “badass” in my current ministry context, unfortunately.

Both of my employers host email with Google. When things go wrong, I usually suspect that I've screwed up something in my arcane mutt settings, but not this time...

I think people underrate the value of not having to think about politics every single day. When competent people are in charge, you still need to hold them accountable, but you don't need to be hyper-vigilant in the way you do when an aspiring authoritarian is at the helm.

I think I'm going to stick with boring old spawn-fcgi for deploying WSGI apps.
