Hello! Apologies for the radio silence. It’s been a strange, uh (sweats, checks date of previous blog post) 14 months! I have updates regarding my employment status and OSS releases. Plus! Extremely mediocre section-title wordplay.

After many years of procrastination, I finally got off my duff and set up Let’s Encrypt for my domain – with my OSS domains soon to follow (though those already had SSL for all but the apex domain bounces, courtesy of Read the Docs).

You should now be seeing https URLs for all pages on this site, and be redirected to https if you access the http versions.

I finally got my bank, Stripe, and Github to play nice together, so I’m now on Github Sponsors. Added it to the relevant section of my projects page too.

No tiers or goals or anything like that - I’m sure the more entrepreneurial users appreciate those features but I’m #blessed with a well-paying job that gives me some OSS time, so sponsorship/etc is largely about beer money or one-time “you fix my bug, I give you cold hard cash” agreements.

I’ve turned off Disqus comments on this site. There’s not usually enough feedback to be worth the extra page/cognitive load. My inbox is always open!

Just a quick note that there is now a roadmap section on my projects page. I’ll be linking to this from the project websites ASAP.

My hope is that this goes a small way towards addressing the thing where my reduced cadence makes it look like projects are “dead” when they’re actually just sleeping (cue Monty Python parrot reference here).
