This will be the views and ramblings of an almost...er...actual 40-something (now 42, sigh), used-to-be-hipper-than-you midwesterner who can't just stop writing stuff about things and stuff. And things. And now it's all tunes all the time. Until it's not.

update June 3, 2018: Sorry, there was a problem when updating the site to SSL and posting was affected for most users (annoyingly, not the one I use to test things though). Email andrew@diaryland.com with any remaining bugs that stop you from posting. (No need to tell me about archiving problems, etc, I'm working on those).

More fixes soon.
