This past weekend was the 17th annual Spam Jam, a huge street festival celebrating the canned meat-like product from Hornet!

My youngest child just sent me a PGP-encrypted email and I'm legit shook.

It's been fun watching dark mode spread through my office. Especially now that Microsoft 365 supports it natively. I've gone full 1999 and topped it all off with a green-character-rain screensaver.

Was in the middle of a lament over the two week wait for to return when a promo for season two of came on. Blessed be!

To mark the 20-year anniversary of , watched it tonight with our youngest. @mrshawaii and I were impressed at how well it holds up (it may be even more timely today). Our son was amused by how many memes he recognized from the film. indiewire.com/gallery/best-199
