An Open Letter to Senator-elect Roger Marshall
Roger Marshall, Kansas Senator-elect, has expressed his intention to vote not to certify the result of the 2020 presidential election.
I feel very strongly that this is a dangerous and irresponsible move that goes against the core tenets of American democracy.

This letter is released in the public domain. Please, adapt it, share it with others, and most importantly, send it to your representatives. Call them, e-mail them, snail mail them to tell them to support free and fair elections.

MiniQ: A bare-bones, CRON-driven job queue.
I wanted a simple way to queue jobs to be run in the background without having to run a separate daemon.
MiniQ is what I came up with. With just 3 files, MiniQ provides the ability to log jobs and the CRON script will run periodically and execute the queued jobs in the background.

Feed Page, RSS, & Atom - Minor Website Updates
I recently made some tweaks to my website. I added a dedicated page as a historical archive for these updates.
I also added the ability to subscribe to this feed using RSS, Atom, and JSON thanks to a handy NPM package.

Noded - Free-Form Notes & Databases
I recently attended the annual University of Kansas hackathon, where me and a couple friends built Noded.
Noded is a tree-based note taking app based on reusable page elements. It provides support for basic notes, uploaded files, a built-in code editor, customizable databases, static website exports, and sub-tree sharing. Check it out here.
