So as y’all may know, I’m currently working on another site called Texihabara. It’s kinda lame right now, but I’m actually really pleased with the framework I’ve built, I think I can add to it to make it something special. I just have to figure out what “special” means. However, I
My birthday is coming up. It’s sometime within the next few days. I’ll be forty-mumble-mumble years old. I was never raised with a birthday tradition, so I never ask for or expect presents. Instead, I buy myself something I might like. So today, for I think the first time since

Over the past few days, Texas has encountered a cold snap the likes of which we haven’t seen in a century. Last night we got down to 2 degrees, the all time record in Austin is -2. The roads are pretty much impassable, and everything has been shut down for
