there’s apparently technical guidelines1 that talk about turning random bits into random numbers between 0 and something other than powers of two. unfortunately it’s lacking a bit of nuance.
i feel like i’m about twenty years late to starting a blog.
i could have then. while i didn’t get my own domain name until 2006, i think i was already self-hosting email and creating web sites in 2001?
in the past i’ve attempted to do a wiki sort of home page, but inevitably there are more dead links than time to fill them in, and some of the content gets rapidly out of sync with my current thoughts on things.
so this is meant to be a sort of long-form version of microblogging. light organization, minimal proof-reading, no effort-posts, just an append-only repository of thought.
i most likely didn’t fully endorse any of them at the time they were written, much less as time passes.
