On the 8th of April, 2019, a light sport aircraft crashed at Santa Fe Airport. It had been flying touch-and-goes. The two persons aboard were killed. One of them was my first flight instructor, Larry Haight.
A disturbing dialog just popped up on my iMac.
But... but... I don't have Flash Player on my system. Has a trojan installed the notoriously insecure Flash Player?
A few things have changed in the nearly five years since I took notes on Connecting to a headless Raspberry Pi w. VNC. Now the Mac is running Mojave. I'm using the macOS "Screen Sharing" app instead of Jolly's Fast VNC. And I just installed the current version of Raspbian on a new RPi. How does one connect to a headless RPi in this environment?
Since I forget this at regular intervals, here are notes on managing credentials for multiple github accounts, and on securing those accounts with two-factor authentication (2FA) and personal access tokens.
Have you ever tugged on a thread and found it tied to a hidden tapestry?
Professor Michael McFaul is a former U.S. Ambassador to Russia.
Grady Booch is perhaps best known for developing UML.
Guido van Rossum is the creator of Python, the programming language (and community) that has made my professional life so interesting.
Suddenly I wonder: is my twitter feed the product of a travesty generator?
My desire to revisit priority queues was driven by "Classic Computer Science Problems in Swift: Essential techniques for practicing programmers". This book is a fun read. It's almost like reliving my sophomore year in college. It makes me feel young again ;)
I haven't written much Swift code that defined generics and protocols with associated types. These concepts aren't hard to understand, but as a long-time Python developer, I find Swift's boilerplate distracting and sometimes hard to read. When I get it wrong, the compiler error messages usually leave me scratching my head.

When I first looked down on the Taos Junction bridge from the top of the Picuris trail, I thought of Neil Armstrong's description of the lunar landscape. Little did I know that Apollo astronauts had trained just a few feet away.
