    Finally found what I think is a great name for my personal website. The TLD is on sale right now, and it's very cheap, but I'm already running rather short on cash. I'll have enough to purchase it (less than $10 for two years) next week, but it's gonna a good chunk of my cash. Given that I need the domain to start making some, it's a good investment.

    Started working on the part of the Frontiers RPG system I'm most excited about in terms of mechanics. More specifically, I've finally started writing the user manual part for it. Given how long I've been resisting doing it out of fear of commitment, this is a big step forward.

    Went to work for the first time since lockdown. Wearing a mask every day; have to walk to where my wife's working b/c we have the one car -- that's actually okay though. I wasn't able to do as much personal programming stuff as I've been used to because of that. Hopefully I can this weekend though :)

      Where has the situation improved so much that they're letting you (making you?) go to work?

        Louisiana. And it's barely improved. I'm honestly waiting for us to be sent back home.

            Thanks! I'm trying. Luckily I'm young and generally healthy but it's still scary.

        New Zealand is on it's way to reopening and IIRC Taiwan, Japan, South Korea and Singapore have handled the disease very well.

    Not sleep for the most part. Before finally being able to sleep 9h ago up until now, l was awake for over 56 hours straight, just.....couldn't sleep. Not sure why even.

      Have you tried getting some exercise? As little as a half our walk can apparently help with sleep. When I got furloughed I stopped sleeping regularly after a couple of weeks, but seem to be back...

      When I got furloughed I stopped sleeping regularly after a couple of weeks, but seem to be back on track since I started getting regular exercise.

      You're either on the verge of becoming a superhuman, or you need to see the doctor.

        Probably the latter. I did sleep in the meantime, woke up at like 5pm and feeling a lot better already.

    I went for a couple of walks on the local golf course. That's it, that's all I left the house to do. But I tell you what, it hasn't done me any harm; and anyone who says it has, can take it up...

    I went for a couple of walks on the local golf course. That's it, that's all I left the house to do. But I tell you what, it hasn't done me any harm; and anyone who says it has, can take it up with my minister of defense, Wuffles.

    I've been slacking on the exercise front, though. That's not so hot. I eventually plan to get something done with my nipples, and they're kind of puffy right now, which might make that problematic, so I'm thinking I need to shed weight and streamline a bit more.

      I have no context for the nipples bit and am so confused.

        Oh right, sorry. Pierced, I mean - I'm thinking straight barbells.
