Kansas 98, Purdue 66: The Morning After - Hammer and Rails

My feelings exactly. We are not at the stage to deal with a team going Super Saiyan, but we are trending slowly in that direction. It doesn't happen overnight. Don't let this overshadow a good season.

Year-in-Review 2016, or The Last Thing Anyone Wants To Read Right Now

3 min read

What a year it has been. Personally, 2016 was pretty good. Our child is now walking and talking constantly, mostly about Thomas the Tank Engine1. Some of my brothers got married (one literal, two figurative). I developed a fairly consistent note-taking habit, first with Workflowy and then with some Field Notes. Probably worth its own post at a later date.

Having a toddler means I don’t get out as much as I used to, so my Official Dad Best-Of–2016 awards go to Deadpool, the new Ghostbusters, and the newest season of The Venture Brothers. Rogue One was also pretty good.

The Rest Of The World

Professionally, and for the world in general, it has been a goddamn nightmare.

Here’s my list of (mostly terrible) things that happened, month by month, with some good tweets for flavor. I’ll try to avoid the elephant in the room.2

And I’m pretty sure nothing else happened. May we all take these lessons into the next year, lest history repeats.


  1. There is no fairer tyrannical ruler than Sir Topham Hatt. Also, how is the Man In The Yellow Hat not broke? Ten seasons and 4 movies later, Curious George should have put him in the poor house.  ↩

No surprise it is easier to build a module to attach to existing vehicles than the entire mechanical/electrical system (not to mention manufacturing, supply chain, etc)
