Don't Bet Your ASCII Without Metrics
That title does not really make sense but I enjoy the turn of phrase. The article is old news but very relevant and interesting.

I appreciate the opportunities this affords but it also highlights the challenges of updating - even relatively innocently - software stacks

Moon Over SF
This turned out better than expected. used a fence post as a tripod; two frames were just sharp enough.

Tourist Shame
All things considered this was adequate. I need to invest in a good portable tripod; limitations are fun but I want better stock.

I went a little nuts with the blue but it was a grey day.

DOOM Sunset
Technically a lot nicer than a Martian moon.

My First Mosaic
This mosaic was made from my collection of PrestoCard reader fails. I only had forty nine unique pictures and the software I used will automagically repeat photos to fill out the picture.

Here's the impressive part though. I do not ride the TTC everyday. I also do not have the capacity to photograph every #presto failure I see and I don't typically snap photos on my way into work as it's too busy at that time.

That means I have time to photograph about ten failures a month or roughly 2.5 per week. Which means that over half of the streetcars I "inspect" have broken Presto systems...

Imagine I were actually serious about cataloguing these?

Why not just use social login or something like AWS Cognito? I get why Atwood is doing it but for most people it's out of scope these days.
