As Little Technology As Possible

It's kind of funny in retrospect that the programming language whose mantra was "There Should Be Only One Way To Do It" featured two separately maintained, incompatible, versions of itself for 11 years.

A picture of our tattered charts which got submerged in our capsize 1000nm off the Japanese coast.

We charted our position on these daily despite them being nearly ruined.

Hate driven development

I hate computers so deeply that it drives me to write software in an attempt to fix this godawful fucking mess that we're in

We're currently stocking up for a long passage, here are some of the foods we carry aboard.

## Morning Mastodonians!

I'm sad. Just canceled our trip to Spain this weekend. If I'm going to get stuck, I'd rather it be at home. Now if we can just get R home, I'll be happy. It was going to be such a fun trip. Air Portugal was extremely unhelpful, so I think I'll be avoiding them in the future.

Still trying to hire! Things are going crazy for our remote health app! More than just a job, this really has a positive impact on society:
