Words I wrote in 2019

I wrote just over one hundred blog posts in 2019. That’s even more than I wrote in 2018, which I’m very happy with.

Here are eight posts from during the year that I think are a good representative sample. I like how these turned out.

I hope that I’ll write as many blog posts in 2020.

I’m pretty sure that I will also continue to refer to them as blog posts, not blogs. I may be the last holdout of this nomenclature in 2020. I never planned to die on this hill, but here we are.

Actually, seeing as this is technically my journal rather than my blog, I’ll just call them journal entries.

Here’s to another year of journal entries.

See, this is what makes it such a good question!

Batman’s moral code is his weakness; Boba Fett just shoots Batman…


Boba Fett is a bouty hunter. His weakness is money. And what’s Batman’s (Bruce Wayne’s) superpower? Money!

  1. Who would win in a fight—Boba Fett or Batman?
  2. What’s that smell?
  3. Will there ever be a boy born who can swim faster than a shark?
  4. What am I thinking right now?
  5. What’s the bloodiest you’ve ever been?

How creating a Progressive Web App has made our website better for people and planet

Creating a PWA has saved a lot of kilobytes after the initial load by storing files on the device to reuse on subsequent requests – this in turn lowers the load time and carbon footprint on subsequent page views, making the website better for both people and planet. We’ve also enabled offline access, which significantly improves user experience for people in areas with patchy connections, such as mobile users on their commute.
