Still have a lot of my RSS feeds to go through after vacation, but I did read a bit while in Aruba.

I really need more time in the day. I have so many things I want to do. I want to write more, I want to finish a side project, practice guitar, and more. But after work and cooking dinner, the hours in the day aren’t quite there.
My wife and I recently returned from a 12 day, 11 night stay in Aruba for our 10 year anniversary. We decided to splurge a bit since it’s such a special occasion and it was worth it.
Very podcast heavy this week. The FCC also fines Dish Network for space junk, and more.
I'm sitting here watching Game 2 of the NLDS between my Philadelphia Phillies versus the Atlanta Braves with the Phillies up 1 game to 0 and am still so anxious.
There are few things that you can count on Congress for. Dysfunction is one, horrible laws and bills that affect the Internet is another. Right now, there is a bill in Congress called the Kids Online Safety Act (KOSA) that is so absolutely awful, it should not be allowed to pass. Sadly though, right now it looks like it may have the votes, and it also has the support of Joe Biden.
Last year, my Phillies eked into the playoffs and then proceeded to knock out the St. Louis Cardinals, Atlanta Braves, & San Diego Padres to make it all the way to the world series. There, they sadly lost to the Houston
Cheaters Astros. This year, they're back in the playoffs and already
took out the Miami Marlins to reach the NLDS for a rematch against the Braves.
The other day in my quest to go through my podcast queue I was listening to an episode of PodRocket, The state of JS frameworks with Chris Ferdinandi. It was a good discussion on some of the downsides of frameworks like React, Vue, and the like. I would highly recommend listening to it.
This week I read about why analytics are a privacy nightmare and not worth it, NASA seeing what they got back from the asteroid, the FTC going after Amazon and more.
One of these days I'm going to stop itching to redesign my site.
