This page is all about what I am doing *now*. It was last updated on November 28, 2022, and will be edited as things change.
## Where I am now
Living in Athens, GA in a home I had already been renting for five years before my partner and I bought it several months into the pandemic.
## Who I am around now
Our house has three people and three cats. The people include me, my partner, and my youngest daughter who spends every other week with us. My eldest child moved away to Georgia State University in the fall of 2022, something I'm still processing.
The cats like to keep me company while I'm working, so you'll find plenty of photos of them in [my gallery][pics].
## What I am doing now
I'm on the management team and am a senior developer at [Infinity Interactive][infinity]. In practice, that means I get loaned out to companies who need some help building great software. I just wrapped up a two-year-long stint helping a DNA foundry build the software that tracks everything in their lab. Now I'm helping a biotech robotics company get their new flagship robot out the door.
## What else?
- focusing my anger on the destruction of Twitter by [creating my own][blog] [federated][mastodon] [social][pics] outlets
- enjoying all the espisodes of [Taskmaster][taskmaster] [on YouTube][taskmaster youtube] (and some that fell off the back of a truck)
- wrapping up the last of the content for [The Outer Worlds][outer worlds] before moving on to a physical game
- thinking about costuming for a [space-themed steampunk event][steampunk] in February
Checkout the [/now page movement][nowff] started by [Derek Sivers][]. You can get a
[profile][] if you set up a `/now` page.
[/now][] — so many people doing stuff in the now!

I used to be a prolific blogger, back in the very early days of the form. Had a few things "go viral" before that was a thing, meaning they were seen and talked about by dozens of people, but I was comfortably C-list in that small world.
As my online time got eaten up by other things, like farming and starting a family, my posts became shorter and less frequent and eventually just ... stopped. Instead of using my own space to keep my words, I unconsciously switched over almost exclusively to a hot new microblogging platform started by some podcasting tooling developers called Twttr.
Twitter's very short character limit made it ideal for the short bits I was writing anyway, and it was easy to write them more often. This only increased the ephemeral quality of them and I didn't even notice really that I was just creating a gap in my once exhaustively documented life. I've got all my tweets downloaded and stored away, but they're not something I can really go back and read. Those years are essentially lost to me.
But now an egomaniacal billionaire troll has taken over and is systematically destroying Twitter and that has shocked me awake. It's well past time to start owning my words again and, more importantly, treating them like they matter and kept and displayed and shared.
So, here's Kestrel's Nest back from the dead.
I'm using [Hugo](https://gohugo.io) to power it, displayed using the [m10c theme](https://themes.gohugo.io/themes/hugo-theme-m10c/). I might charge all that, and this is certainly a rough draft, but it's a good place to start.
For a laugh, I used a page from February 2001 from my old blog here as a placeholder. I thought about making this style match that exactly, but if I go that route I'll do it another day.
[It's here](/ancientindex.html) if you want to have a laugh too.

I've come out the other side. Amazingly enough, I only had to reinstall two
applications: my virus scanner and web browser. All my email survived. And, my
first impressions are great. I like Windows 2000. I am using Stardock's
wonderful [Object Desktop](http://www.stardock.com/products/odnt/), so my GUI doesn't even look like Windows to begin
with, and changing to W2000 didn't affect me there at all. If you picked up my
laptop right now, you would think I was using Apple's OS X.

As a software developer that gets loaned out to other companies, I tend to have quite a few "first day on the job" days. Today was one of them, joining a team working hard to get a new bio-lab robot on the market.
As is typical with joining a new project, I spent the entire first day trying to figure out why nearly nothing in the README actually worked.
Computers are the worst.

It was a day full of good things. Here they are, in chronological order:
- read two chapters of Dan Moren's book "[The Bayern Agenda](https://dmoren.com/the-bayern-agenda/)" while drinking coffee in the hot tub before work
- the things that didn't work in my new project yesterday started working
- attended my first standup with my new teammates
- ate a delicious chicken pot pie for lunch
- returned a library book that was six years overdue and wasn't charged a fine
- voted in the [senate runoff election](https://warnockforgeorgia.com)
- got a delicious dirty spiced chai
- installed gitea at [git.kestrelsnest.social](https://git.kestrelsnest.social) and initialized a repo for [Advent of Code](https://adventofcode.com/2022)
- made buffalo chicken legs for dinner
- took my youngest to their first rehearsal of a [neighborhood brass band](https://pix.kestrelsnest.social/i/web/post/503348491074470007) based on a poster I saw stapled to a telephone pole
- ate leftover pecan pumpkin pie
- watched several episodes of [Taskmaster](https://taskmaster.fandom.com/wiki/Taskmaster_Wiki) and had quite a few good laughs
A good day indeed.
Postscript: It occurred to me right after posting that this could have been titled "Is the ketamine working? Signs point to yes." More on that later, no doubt.

title: Solving Puzzles with Code

The [Advent of Code](https://adventofcode.com) is upon us once again. Every year Eric Wastl weaves together a daily series of clever challenges into a delightful story. They can be solved in any language and method you want, including brute force, and I look forward to it every December.
Which is an odd thing to say maybe considering I've never made it further than a dozen days in. It just seems like every year the work project I'm on catches fire and needs my full attention and my drive to work on coding challenges for fun just fizzles out.
I'm fully expecting it to be true this year, too. I just started a new project this week, and the whole reason I'm here is they are short-staffed and under the gun to deliver a fully functional robot in three months, if not sooner. I've already accepted the fact that it's going to ratchet up the pressure over the next few weeks and not loosen up for the holidays. I'm ok with that.
Still, I'm ready. I've been wanting to loosen my reliance on GitHub (same as I'm loosening my reliance on Twitter, Instagram, etc.) so this was the perfect time to try out [Gitea](https://gitea.io/en-us/). Programming is surprisingly social (especially coding challenges like AoC) so I spun up [git.kestrelsnest.social](https://git.kestrelsnest.social/) and created a placeholder repo for [my 2022 solutions](https://git.kestrelsnest.social/eric/adventofcode2022). When the first puzzle lands at midnight, I'll be ready to go.
And if I only make it three days, that's ok.

Tonight was the annual Athens Christmas parade, also known as (by a friend of mine, anyway) "Athens Annual Lets Do Weird Shit Day". I've been regaled for years with tales of the strangeness at this parade, ranging from "Rotisserie Jesus" (a bloody live human Jesus on a spinning cross) to last year's hippy who thought it would be a good idea to use a roadkill great horned owl as a hand puppet and thrust it in the faces of kids lined up along the route.
I've never been able to see it, myself. For the last twenty years I ran Athens Locally Grown, a weekly farmers Thursday farmers market that always conflicted. I closed it at the end of last year, though, so this year I was free to go. The theme was "An Out of this World Holiday" and the grand marshal was a local amateur astronomer known as "Mr. Science" for all the outreach educational events he's done over the years. Already, it was the best Christmas parade I've ever been to.
At least a third of the floats were from churches with questionable relations to the theme. The best was the Unitarians with a pickup they converted to the USS Enterprise pulling a trailer proclaiming they were "embracing Star Trek values Logic Science Dignity Equality Equity" and a whole group of walkers wearing various eras of star fleet uniforms. The Catholics had a large tiki lounge as their float. [The local klezmer band](https://www.klezlocal42.com) had both a giant dreidel and a Jewish space laser.
A [bra store](https://grailbras.com) had a small float proclaiming "Every body is a celestial body" and a large bra on a pole covered with lights, ready to guide magi.
My favorite float (and winner of Best In Show) was from a local [Montessori-ish STEAM school](https://www.doublehelixschool.com). They made a post-apocalyptic cabin populated with survivors and followed by a number of different creatures, including a dancing Chinese dragon only it was a "Santapede".
And yeah, the controversial fundamentalist church had a [smiling bloody Jesus hanging from a cross under models of the planets](https://pix.kestrelsnest.social/i/web/post/504147835911897231). Ho ho ho!

I've come out the other side. Amazingly enough, I only had to reinstall two applications: my virus scanner and web browser. All my email survived. And, my first impressions are great. I like Windows 2000. I am using Stardock's wonderful <a href="http://www.stardock.com/products/odnt/">Object Desktop</a>, so my GUI doesn't even look like Windows to begin with, and changing to W2000 didn't affect me there at all. If you picked up my laptop right now, you would think I was using Apple's OS X.

A <a href="http://www.mushroomcompany.com/ads/garland/index.html">mushroom company in North Carolina</a> is claiming to have successfully inoculated trees with black truffles. No one has ever been able to do this before. Black truffles can net you about $70,000 per acre, but they've never been able to be successfully farmed. They just happen, in a small area of France and Italy, if you're lucky. If true, this could eventually make truffles available for the masses!

My parents (and youngest sister) drove into town this morning, staying for one day only. They'll have spent more time on the road driving here and back from outside St. Louis, Missouri, than they'll spend here visiting, but I'm glad they came. They'll see the play tonight and head off after lunch tomorrow.

The response to my play has been overwhelmingly positive. I actually had no idea up until the first audience watched it how it would go over. I'm very, very pleased. For those of you far away and not able to come watch, here's my director's notes:<br>
<blockquote>
�[This Durang play] is so filled with non sequiturs that you have to do each thing with total conviction � if you try to look for a stream of consciousness like you would with any other playwright, it would just get in the way.� Thus spoke Dana Ivey, who first played the Nanny at the American Repertory Theatre. This is true for the actors; it is true for me as director; it is also true for you as audience member. Baby With the Bathwater is a challenging play for everyone involved. It�s not often you see such a play presented in Community Theater � these kinds of things are usually reserved for universities and edgy professional theaters � but I think it�s very good to do this type of show from time to time.<br>
<br>
You are probably reading this before you�ve actually seen the show, wondering what I�m going on about. Christopher Durang is well known for taking an aspect of society and making us think about it by presenting extreme examples of how things could really be. His hit <i>Sister Mary Ignatious Explains It All For You</i> took on organized religion. This play takes on a topic that�s been brought to the forefront by politics recently: the family. And in true Durang style, we�ve been given a family that�s easy to laugh at because it�s gone so terribly, terribly wrong while simultaneously offending us for the very same reason. You point and laugh, and feel guilty for doing so. Even worse, you�re likely to spot yourself in some of what gets presented.<br>
<br>
Durang hasn�t held back. Everything about family life is fair game. Some scenes you may agree with, while others may hit too close to home or make you angry. That�s good! That�s the power of theater. People used to riot, overthrow governments, and hold debates after watching theater. While I�m not advocating violent revolution, I am sad that the overwhelming majority of what we see today is weak �feel good� stories and mindless entertainment. And of course I don�t just mean live theater, but also movies and television. It�s good to see something provocative from time to time. It reaffirms what we are doing right as a society and point out areas where we could do better. Don�t be afraid, though � I think this is a mighty funny script. I hope you laugh a lot. It�ll only sting a little.<br>
<br>
This is a small cast (especially by Town & Gown standards), but it took many more people than you see to make this show happen. I�ve tried to list them all in the credits (If you helped and I forgot to mention you, I�m sorry. Thank you so much for your help.), but a few people I need to thank more. I designed the set, but Ben Teague was able to take my ideas and build them. His ability to take scribblings on the back of a napkin and make something that works the first time continues to amaze me. Beth Kozinsky is my first-ever assistant director, and now I wonder how I ever went without. Bill Akin made business cards for everyone, helping with the publicity effort and making the cast feel like professionals. Steve Wildey and Amy Crow continue to be the best. Chris Johnson is beyond words. And the Cast. I asked them to attend two set calls, and they came nearly to all of them. I gave them a schedule made tight by the holidays, and they came out enough ahead that the final week was anything but stressful. They took my concepts and ideas and created characters that are (I�m certain) exactly as Durang intended. Thank you, everyone.

To many it's just another dot-com going under, five or six layoffs lost among the thousands more going on around them. It's dear to me, though. <a href="http://www.pyra.com">Pyra Labs</a>, creaters of the <a href="http://www.blogger.com">Blogger software</a> I use to maintain this weblog, is down to a company of one. Out of money and unable to continue as it had, co-founder and CEO <a http://www.evhead.com">Evan Williams</a> is the only one left.<br>
<br>
Blogger is just one of the several tools available to easily create and maintain a website such as this one, but it was my tool of choice. They've got about about 100,000 weblogs using their software -- this one was number fourteen. Pyra created exactly what I needed, exactly when I needed it. There's been some rough going as they tried to keep pace with demand, and it was clear from the beginning that eventually they'd run out of money, but they had what I thought to be the best thing going.<br>
<br>
It wasn't just the software that made the company dear to me. It was <a href="http://www.evhead.com">the human</a> <a href="http://www.megnut.com/">face they</a> <a href="http://www.haughey.com/">presented</a> <a href="http://saturn.org/">to the</a> <a href="http://www.onfocus.com/">world</a>. They started their company shortly after the <a href="http://www.partnersoft.com">company I work for</a> did. We were about the same size. I could relate. But they were in San Francisco, sure to go far, sure to join the ranks of the dot com millionaires. I was in backwards Athens, Georgia, creating software for rural electric utilities. They were riding high, we were struggling to keep the doors open. I could live, through their eyes, a life that a few small changes, a few different decisions, could have given me. I connected with them in a way I've never connected with another company before. I wasn't just a customer.<br>
<br>
But of course, the times have changed. The bubble they were in has burst. Here in Athens, we've turned around, too. Turning a profit, even, with a solid future in sight. I'm still living multiple lives, though. My own, of course, and the one they let me live with their words. Thanks, in large part to their efforts, I'm living many, many more lives through the words of <a href="favorites.html">thirty or so more people</a>, chosen from the hundreds of thousands of people now writing online journals and weblogs. It would have been much harder for me to find these people without the efforts of Pyra and the other people doing similar work.<br>
<br>
I don't need Blogger. I could do all of this on my own. But I <b>like</b> Blogger. I'm sad to see things end up this way. I wish them all the best of luck. And thank you for everything you've made possible.

Tonight is the last rehearsal without an audience. We get a preview crowd tomorrow, and then it's the opening night extravaganza on Friday. It's all coming together into a wonderful little show. Today, I had lunch with a class of university upperclasspeople (one upperclassman and a whole bunch of upperclasswomen) who had lots of questions for me about the show and directing and acting. It was like being on "Inside the Actor's Studio", but with food.
