    Planned Projects for 2024   Ongoing projects       Caring for this family : A cool wife, 2 cool kids, and a decrepit cat.     Working 30 hours per week : With health insurance!     Being the webmaster for  Janny Wurts and Don Maitz  : Probably the most constant side project I deal with right now.     Keeping the URI! Zone alive : Lying dormant for its inexorable return to popularity, like the 17-year cicada.     Being on the HOA : Monthly meetings and litter pickup.      Projects that will probably happen       Tune my 8 year old cloud empire : Specifically,...

    Vote BU 2023    Please make sure to write me in when you head to the polling stations tomorrow. I have a winning or undefeated record against every other candidate, and an actionable, common sense platform.     Target will be required to keep at least 3 manned checkout lines open during business hours.    Diners will receive 20% off their orders at any restaurant that uses a QR code for their menus.    Amazon can no longer sell goods from mysterious knockoff companies whose company name was invented by mashing the keyboard with CAPS LOCK on.    Senators from the great state of Virginia can steal 1 vote from West Virginia by rolling a natural 20.    ...

    List Day: 10 Family Routines    Rebecca tries to get to a yoga class on Friday evening and Saturday morning while I watch the kids. She then takes the kids to Riverside Church and the Farmer's Market on Sunday mornings while I get my own downtime.    We've had a regular babysitter who helps us about one afternoon per week (or a weekend date night) when not enjoying her retirement driving around the country. The kids love her!    After Rebecca picks Maia up from the school bus in the afternoon, Maia has an afternoon snack, some no-people downtime, and then usually heads outside to play with the neighborhood kids in the street or the yard (mainly with bikes, chalk, or balls).    Ian will always run to t...

    Backlogged Side Project Status   7 months after  this post      1) Swap out my PC power supply, which currently has a 40% of not turning back on after we lose power in a thunderstorm.    I upgraded my power supply last year, but unfortunately the power issue persists. When we lose power while the computer is on, something in the motherboard keeps thinking it's already on and prevents it from being turned on again. Mysteriously, the only workaround is to move the computer to another room and plug it into a different outlet (though still on the same breaker). Once I turn it on and off there, I can bring the computer back to my office and it works fine.    2) Become fluent in a non-Java programming l...

    Vote BU 2022    If elected, I promise to enact the following changes in our society and daily way of life.     All dishwasher soap must come with its own built-in Rinse Agent.    LinkedIn users will be banned if they put a double line break between every single sentence in their post.    Alexa will no longer be able to tell you about all of the amazing additional skills she can do.    High efficiency washing machines will actually show the correct time remaining instead of staying at the 1 minute mark for 20 extra minutes.    Restaurants will no longer be allowed to call their tiniest orange juice "regular-sized".    All bagging area errors in...

    List Day: 12 Backlogged Side Projects    Swap out my PC power supply, which currently has a 40% of not turning back on after we lose power in a thunderstorm.    Become fluent in a non-Java programming language (likely Python or Kotlin) in time for Advent of Code 2022.    Migrate away from Eclipse IDE for my polyglot projects, possibly towards something like VSCode or IntelliJ.    Restart work on my open-source library,  Sparkour .    Update the URI! Zone's SSL handling to use free, auto-renewing Let's Encrypt certificates.    Update the URI! Zone's ancient reliance on Apache HTTPd, OpenLDAP, and Apache Tomcat, in order to learn more modern alternatives.    Do a v...

    List Day: 6 In-Office Exercises Killed By Remote Work     The Half Crouch : When you enter a multi-person restroom and, without stopping, fluidly crouch down just far enough to see if any of the stalls are occupied.     Whole World In His Hand : Balancing a soda, mouse, and laptop all on one hand so you can reach your badge with the other to get through a security door.     The Uppercut : Again in the restroom, when you make a fist and punch upwards into the paper towel dispenser to make enough room for the bottom towel to come out without ripping it or pulling seven other towels with it.     The Leaning Tree : When you're in the elevator waiting for it to act upon your button press and you lean ...

    Vote BU 2021    Having trouble deciding on your elected officials tomorrow? Write me in! Here is my eminently actionable platform, which I'm sure we can all agree upon:    Videos will not be allowed to leap free of a webpage and follow you down the margin.    Every time VDOT construction lane markings cause an accident in the rain or darkness, all Virginia drivers get $25 added to their EZPass account.    The teens will be renamed for consistency and ease of learning: ten, ten-one, ten-two, ten-three, ten-four, ten-five, ten-six, ten-seven, ten-eight, and ten-nine.    Logging in using Single Sign On will no longer flash through every page on the Internet in an epilepsy-...

    List Day: 2021 Resolutions    Go into a restaurant and have a pint.    Put gas in my car.    Finish the last 2 puzzles in Puzzle Boat 7.    Visit my new office in Herndon which opened in April 2020.    Restart Monthly Poker Night.    Drop Maia off at the grandparents' for a week, month, or year.    Smell the BO of someone outside of my family.    Enter a Costco without feeling like I'm an extra in the prologue of an outbreak movie.    Have at least 1 barbeque.    Go down a grocery store aisle any damn way I please.

    Maia Battle Report: Year 3 Month 4    Maia at age 3 is showing small signs of brilliance, like asking what's going on on the other side of the world when the sun goes down, or making a connection between something brand new and something we learned and forgot months ago. She is into a rhyming phase where she likes to string rhyming sounds together like "hocky, blocky, docky". She has definitely entered the WHY?? stage of life which is more irritating than I thought it would be. All it's doing is training me to hold back the reason for something I say so I'll have a follow-up ready for the inevitable WHY??   We're working on her joke abilities, and she has over a 50% chance to guess the punchline of jokes following a known pattern, like animal sounds...

    List Day: 10 Unlikely Perils that Childrens' TV Prepared Me For     Quicksand     Fake roads painted on walls    All of the animals escaping from the farm    Erupting volcanoes    Trains approaching while I'm in the middle of a bridge    Trains derailing because the track switch is toggled to the wrong side    Convicts trying to steal my vault of gold    Friends pressuring me into smoking cigarettes    Trapped in a cage with the key just out of reach    Drugs everywhere

    List Day: COVID-19 Cause and Effect     We used to use paper towels for everything... It became undesirable to shop at Costco for a couple months... Our paper towel supply ran low... We were forced to purchase name-brand paper towels in the grocery store whenever they weren't sold out... We found that these paper towels don't have the option to tear at 1/2 size so they're overkill for double duty as napkins... We bought napkins so we don't waste full-size paper towels... We bought weighted napkin trays so they don't blow away on our screen porch... We are now a napkin family.      I used to get enormous, fresh-baked bagels for breakfast at Safeway twice a week... During the early days of quara...
