Since I’ll hit 20 years of blogging this November, this year I’m posting a daily list of anything I published on this day in the past.

There are 22 posts previously published on July 30th

    • Book forty-one of 2019: White Trash Zombie Unchained, by Diana Rowland. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ Finished off the WTZ series in fine form, wrapping up various plot threads, dealing with villains, and even introducing psychic zombie alligators into the mix. All in all, a very fun series.
  • 2018
    • The Maps That Show That City vs. Country Is Not Our Political Fault Line: “The key difference is among regional cultures tracing back to the nation’s colonization.” Interesting look at how historical regions may have affected recent (and, potentially, upcoming) elections.
    • Linkdump for July 16th through July 30th An automatically generated list of links that caught my eye between July 16th and July 30th.
    • Another move away from Facebook Rethinking my posting strategies in the wake of Facebook cutting off API access to post to personal profits.

    • Had a very pleasant summer dinner out on the back patio this evening.
    • More proof that I am actually somewhere around 12, rather than 43. After gathering up all the loose change from around the house, we decided that I could use whatever it added up to for #Lego sets. The result? Almost $163, and that’s after Coinstar’s 10% fee. Not bad! So, yeah, more #Legos to build […]
    • Fresh picked goodies from our garden! Cucumbers, apricots, tomatoes, Italian prunes, and a green pepper – rosemary and dill also came from the garden, but aren’t pictured.
    • Chucks of the day (47/48): green camouflage low tops. My feet are invisible! ;) #chucks #converse
  • 2014
    • Saw the @trekmovie #trekselfie tag today. Here’s a gem I found this weekend at an antique store!
    • Continuing to get scruffier after going clean shaven last week. Almost at the point where I’ll need to start shaping the beard. Considering trying an actual beard (kept short and trimmed, though, not hipster mountain man bushy) rather than the goatee. Amused by the amount of grey coming in, though!
    • The German-settled colony planet of Leavenworth. #RollWorld Image @RollWorldApp, #TinyPlanet #PhotoSphere #StereoGraphic

    • Dance Off Photoshoot I'm in the rather interesting position of being the _only_ person in Seattle who's gotten at least a hint as to what each of the different teams are doing, and let me tell you...this year's Dance Off is going to be _awesome_.
  • 2006
    • Visitor at Work We noticed this (not so) lil' guy crawling along the counter at work today. Having a mild case of arachnophobia and being a camera buff, my reaction was pretty predictable: 'Ugh! Eww! (cringe) ... Where's the macro lens?'
  • 2004
    • Batman Begins While I knew that Waner Brothers was working on bringing the Batman franchise back from the neon grave that Joel Schumacher buried it in, I had no idea that the project was this far along: the teaser trailer has just been posted.
  • 2003
    • 50 ways to leave your lover… Newt Gingrich, former speaker of US House of Representatives, big on family values, who visited his wife in hospital the day after she underwent surgery for cancer, to discuss the terms of their divorce.
    • Help search engines index your site Tips and tricks to help search engines index your site more intelligently. Written for, but not specific to, TypePad Advanced accounts.
    • Our friend, the humble 'title' attribute Earlier this evening, I got an e-mail from Pops asking me how I created the little tooltip-style comment text that appears when you hover over links in my posts. I figured that it was information worth posting here, on the off chance it might help someone else out.
    • BuyMusic ripping off artists (which I will refer to as BM) got their "vast" music library of 300,000 plus songs from a company called the Orchard. So, without the express consent of what is likely lots of the Orchards catalog, BM has put it up for sale at the bargain price of $.79 a song.
    • Pet Peeves Can we please please please stop using the target='new' attribute in links? I don't want a new window. If I do want a new window, then I'll right-click and use the 'Open link in new window' command. But I don't want you deciding that I must want a new window, just because you don't want me taking the oh-so-horrid step of actually (gasp) leaving your site!

    • I’m employed! Rock on -- when I started typing this update out, I was under the impression that I'd have another round of interviews to go through on the job I've been trying to get...but I just got a call, and I'm hired!
