- Flask is 13 years old and my web platform of choice. Here's a post with 13 tips for modern Flask development.
- My wife and I have had this same conversation about the benefits of owning physical copies of media recently. We're going to start looking at Goodwill and other thrift stores for copies of titles we want.

This book is not for you
The weirdest book I've ever read is House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski. It's a mystery/horror/memoir/research essay all rolled into one insane publication. Anywyas, I'm reading it again for funsies and I came across a great parody on Reddit from 2006. Someone found and scanned the original and the formatting of the pages give you an idea of what to expect if you pick up the book. If you've read the book, the parody is hilarious.
