Happy Memorial Day!
Wow, the month of May (and 2021 in general) has flown by! It’s really hard to believe that tomorrow is already the first day of June.
First of all, website updates! I’ve not taken time to do any major work on my website as of late, but over the past few months I’ve made the following small enhancements and/or changes:
- Updated my Blogroll with a few new blogs I follow
- Added a podcasts section to my Blogroll
- Pulled the Hugo theme I use forward (mostly minor visual enhancements)
My reading time has also been somewhat limited, but in May I also managed to complete the book The Code Breaker: Jennifer Doudna, Gene Editing, and the Future of the Human Race by Waltar Isaacson, which turned out to be a fascinating look on RNA, CRISPR, and the use of mRNA technologies in SARS-CoV-2 testing and vaccines.
And to wrap up the month, I took a little vacation time to relax, visited family, and helped my sister start and/or wrap up a bunch of tech projects, including:
- Migrating her personal website from Blogger to Wordpress
- Setting up a secondary Wordpress site for a business she and a friend are starting
- Setting up secured email for said business, with Tutanota (selected due to competitive price and feature set, plus my positive experience with them for the past 2 years)
And, that will wrap up this month’s recap. Next up: June!
