I publish open source tools for free. If you find my tools useful, please contribute to keeping them free: :-)

So the DeepMind AI can beat humans at StarCraft ... I wonder if anyone's taken a solid shot at introducing machine learning to competing at Minecraft.

Was super excited to see I could get a Pixelbook for $200 off this week!

Then I looked at my bank account.

ok what's the best FOSS calendar service that has a web app and works well on iOS? I'd consider paying a monthly fee even

Other a glass of almond milk from the fridge. It was lukewarm.

A failing fridge is so not what I need right now :-(

I'm working on a bunch of new (free) projects. Would love if you'd be able to support keeping them free...

My wife tapped my shoulder today and reminded me it's St Patrick's Day.

"Nope. Can't be. I have 0 beer."

Was hoping this would get me the blessing of an impromptu shopping trip...

If you're already a customer, please log in to your account and verify things look good. I migrated the site to a new subdomain and some things might have broken in the transition.

Let me know if anything looks funky and we can get it fixed ASAP.

I'm getting ready for a significant update to my Advanced Passwords plugin. The update will also come with a price increase.

Buy it _today_ to lock in the low price of $4.99. Updates are free forever.

And the award for the cover of the week goes to … Bloomberg!

Is there any browser plugin that allows rejecting a website's javascript and substituting your own?

(Or perhaps a community-developed, free alternative js)

I'm also getting junk subscriptions to 'est' at the same domain ... so I suspect someone else was trying to use my email domain and slurped it up.

I would not be surprised, though, if someone had just fat-fingered my domain when offering their own email, though. It's happened ... far more frequently that I'd like to remember.

It looks like someone I'd registered with at one point - 'ampest' - was included in the breach. Downside is ... I can't remember what 'ampest' was and my Google Fu is weak ...

As a throwaway example: 24 Hour Fitness knows me as 24hourfitness@myprivateemaildomain.tld. (Not a real domain, obviously...)

Over the past 24 hours, I've gotten about 400x the amount of spam I usually get. Thing is ... I run my own email server, so I leverage catchall addresses to segment vendors.

WordPress 5.1.1 is out. Release hashes for DGXPCO are now live for updated point releases from 4.2.x thru 5.1.x. Those using DGXPCO should see the latest release shortly. (Just waiting on edge caches to clear...)

Oh fun. Another HIBP alert. Houzz this time. Is there no one safe from poor security management?

Really happy with my carefully curated federation here. Made the mistake of looking at a broader feed ... and found a whole new set of domains to add to my blocklist.

Whenever someone does something clever to fight robocalls, I'm jealous I didn't think of it first. This time, it's John Oliver...
