Being a kid, stuck at my grandmothers on Sunday’s, this show would come on PBS. It was a respite and brings back so many memories rewatching them.
Decided to do something new for 2019. Closing out my old Ikiwiki install and migrating some really old blog posts to a new home. Here, on WordPress.
Been a while since I’ve used WP and it’s come a long way. I’ve enabled ActivityPub and hope this can be a hub of sorts for me instead of trying to standup and manage a full AP server, like Mastodon or Pleroma.
I looked for a long time to find a compatible, lowcost and good sounding BT headset. This is what I found and I highly recommend.

Some companies have a new perk for employees in the form of “unlimited time off, as long as you get your work done” 1. While at first glance this would seem to be a really nice benefit, I would counter that instead, because of the “get your work done” caveat, it penalizes the busiest and possibly overworked employees. These employees are less able to take time without impacting/blocking others.I would suggest an alternative PTO policy that includes the previous “unlimited” PTO, but extends with a “required” PTO. This would be a set period each year that each employee is required to take PTO. This would insure busy teams/employees can take the time they need, force the company to better plan and properly staff each team.
