I turned 32 yesterday, which personally isn’t much of a big affair (I usually like my birthdays to be far more casual and not a Big Deal). I think for me I’ve never desired the hullaballoo of grandiose celebrations. It’s not that I wouldn’t be appreciative of it; I guess it’s that I don’t need much. Since I was working throughout my entire birthday, I was able to enjoy the birthday messages I was sent through various mediums, but I also spent the time contemplating the relationships I have, I’ve had, and have been failing at.
I love that Flex Boxes exist. It makes it pretty fun to create new layouts and styles, and is definitely going to be part of my toolkit from now on. Of course, my first test with it is not the standard column layouts with resizable widths, but instead is a fixed-width tile style reminiscent of the Metro Design Language. Is it accessible? Well, the structure looks okay without styles. Is it pretty? I think so.
I was sitting down with my devices this evening to check how my OpenPGP keys were set up to make sure all of them are functioning okay and will do what I need whenever I would need them. Save for the fact that I took a plunge a month back and began a transition to using ECC (its compatibility isn’t like RSA’s across OpenPGP implementations, plus I’m using Curve25519 for encryption, which GnuPG provides but isn’t in OpenPGP’s RFC) everything looked fine, until I thought about what would happen if I lose my device?
