Happy holidays, folks. Been a while since I’ve posted, I know. Less than a year this time, at least! Since you last saw me, there have been… changes — and I’m not just talking about the new website (powered by Hugo and the Academic framework). Since I last posted, I have (in no particular order): Discovered I do not suffer from the potentially-fatal cardiovascular form of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, as I and my physician previously thought.

Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger

Hi, folks. See that big star-field over on the left1 there? I didn’t realise until I viewed this thing over a 3G connection that I made that a two megabyte file. I mean, yes, it’s a 1080p image, and yes, it’s pretty, but it’s not “let’s throw two megabytes of image at everyone loading this page” pretty. So between the magic of jpgcrush and simply decreasing the quality level from a ridiculous 90 to a barely-noticeable 70, it’s… still the largest thing loaded.

Blah, blah, blah.

I’ve been told numerous times by numerous1 people that I need a blog. I hate blogging. I’ve started several, and finished them all rather quickly. I hardly even keep up with Twitter. But… It’s been a few years since I last tried one… and I’ve changed, I know I have. I even post on Facebook more than once a month — and you’d think that’s enough of a blog for anyone, but no.
