9/18/2021 - Recessions

Looking at some past and future recessions, there seems to be some predictable timing:

* 2014 was a soft recession.

Note that this is with incomplete data and should be expanded upon for a more accurate perspective.



9/15/2021 - A common Gillogism

Button Panic - When you've been operating a game or device for a while, and suddenly you forget which buttons perform which actions. This is not uncommon while under the influence of cannabis - indeed it's one of the joys of its use. Just don't drive or operate heavy machinery without additional training.



9/14/2021 - Back in my day

The future used to be so full of hope and magic and joy. These days, it's the FU-ture.

Contact me if you want to buy one. If I get enough demand I'll set up a shop.



9/11/2021 - Ego facti mortis, Pestifer Mundi, et in Arcadia ego

We are the electromagnetic force, suspended between saline packets of lipid polymer foam, self-replicating in thermal equilibrium, infused with calcium-phosporus crystals - floating along geodesics in 4d spacetime near large gravity masses - navigating a sociopolitical maze of ever-increasing complexity - just trying to get along.

Things must end to make room for new things to begin. Good things ending is the price we must pay for bad things also ending.



9/10/2021 - 5000 history entries!

Working through the backlog of links collected over the first 5 years of this project, and just crossed 5k entries. Somehow, having this in website form makes updates so much easier than when it was just a text file. Or maybe it's the self-validation from putting it all together. Either way, the History Mega List will soon glow with vibrant details. It's a puzzle where the pieces are scattered across time and space, and only by building a mystery can we learn who started the fire.



9/3/2021 - Moar updates!!1!

Updated background and links to to "RK Purple" after realizing the site colors are nearly an Ace flag, and I don't understand romance the way that some people don't understand math. But I think the shade of purple used on the Ace flag is no good, and I like this shade much more.

Title and menu are much bigger and mobile friendly.



9/1/2021 - Site updates.

Moving past Bootstrap for a CSS-only menu. Then, to be slick, used our old friend Viewport Units to scale menu elements, margins, and text with the window size. Finally, some bug-fixing to learn about and replace the collapsed border that makes tables look so clean.

Also put the site header in small caps, which looks more industrial.
