This is now a Jekyll site!

My blog has been on Wordpress forever, but I'm switching it up! The Jekyll docs are less involved than the Wordpress docs, and the whole thing runs without a database! I develop at home and just toss the resulting static site into GitHub. Now I have a site that's easier to tinker with and more secure.

Even better, this site is almost abandoned, so if I screw something up then almost nobody will notice!

    I've been a bit bummed out about not running in regular races these days, but COVID-19 has me sold on virtual races. It's going to be a long time before I'm comfortable in a crowd again, so I'm glad to have the ZombiesRun app available.

    I've often found myself wondering when a particular senator is up for re-election, or what party an obscure member of the House is from. So I looked around and found an API from ProPublica. Then I made a list.

    If you can believe it, this is the tenth virtual race for "Zombies, Run!" and the quality has been consistent all the way. With COVID-19 locking us down, this format is far better than having a bunch of people gather in one place and send their perspiration everywhere.

    Another hit from Six to Start and their Zombies Run app. This time, Runner 5 goes into a cursed carnival. Acting and writing are fantastic, as always.

    How can you not love zombies on a train? This one is about a fancy new super-fast train that was taking its first batch of passengers as the Zombie Apocalypse begins. It’s a bit of a bummer in a way, because it shows a society that was making some really cool advances in science and sustainability just before it was snuffed out.
