Did some work on Signbrary over the last few days. Added the ability to use websites in the slide deck, which is good for pulling up live information, social media screens, etc.

Over the next day or so I’ll fold in WebM support for video, and that’ll go alongside the already existing MP4 support.

Good morning, I have two thumbs and updated 9468 top container records in ArchivesSpace to add their locations. Takes a simple CSV pairing top container IDs and locations.

how to make AutoHotkey watch a Polaris Find Tool status bar for the word "Done."

So last night I did some of the most ah-mazing, markedly graceful, absolutely Olympic class falling down the fucking stairs.

Oh my god everything hurts.
