Most don't realize how unusual it should be that people the world over know exactly what is going on in US politics yet, if you ask Americans about these other countries, we often can't find them on a map much less do we know the 1st thing of their politics.

Over the next few years the world is going to start to realize how bad of an idea it was to let private US tech rise to the level of public utilities while also privatizing accountability and other basic functions to the same companies who's only goal is stock price.

It is possible to be fascinated by technology, including AI, voice recognition, etc and still horrified by the companies currently manning the gates by which people can access that technology.

Here’s to hoping today goes smoother than yesterday.

Please help me find a resource detailing privacy issues with Google Chrome in one place other than's one. Do you know one? I need to write an article which is easy to read to beginners related to that, especially, I am looking for the reasons and the proofs not the alternatives. Thank you, All!

Static sites are great, but they're not for everyone. If you're using them because WordPress is too heavy here's proof that you can fix your WordPress theme. This is from my own WP site with a homepage that weighs a whopping 25kb (compressed). Theme at

If you care about privacy on the web, even if you don't use WordPress, I highly suggest supporting this effort to disable FLoC by default in WP Core and doing so as a security update. With 40% of the web this is sorely needed.

You all might appreciate my Home Assistant setup, particularly what I call "dad mode". Tells me how long someone left the lights on so I know how loud to scream at them....

Local news is talking about how red tide is already strong enough here to cause breathing and other problems. It’s going to be a very long summer.

Oye... I still owe @mastohost some thoughts on server migrations. Good God these last two months have gotten away from me :/

vaccine thoughts

This Meetup later today on Greening Your WordPress Site looks great! I've been working on this a while myself and can't wait to hear how others are doing do.

It's actually cool in here thanks to the rain outside. I'm loving it!

Ordered from DoorDash at 1230. At 1500 had to message their support as we didn’t get out food. They were polite and actually gave us a refund plus a little extra credit. That’s how to keep a customer. I’ve long stopped using UberEats as they blame every issue on the customer.

It's 10:30am and I've already finished my step goal for the day. Had to get it in before the rain hits. These are habits I'm glad to have formed over the past year.

Will round two of the weather make it to Sarasota or will it fizzle out first?

We're about to get our first real rain in a few months. I'm excited about it but also disappointed as the end of the dry season also means a brutal summer is fast approaching.

I'm wondering how many other sites on the green team at use WordPress? @kev do you have that recorded everywhere (before I script it myself)?
