If you need an auto body shop in , I have had great success with Carstar McKnight. My 2006 Corolla hasn’t looked this good in a decade.

Just finished watching the season opener for Pretty Hard Cases. All the things I love about this show wrapped into one episode. It also did a masterful job of reminding us about the dynamics amongst all the players without having to do a recap off the top.

My Friday morning revelation: when I write blog posts for , my style is heavily influenced by the print and online publications from the 1990s and 2000s, particularly TidBITS. There is always something about the journey I took in what I write (see today’s article from Adam Engst for a prime example: tidbits.com/2023/01/05/use-liv).

In the sequel to the post I wrote about using to deliver payloads for , I discuss:

• using what Outset calls a Login-Once Override to force Outset to run an updated item on next login, and

COVID 19 Alberta Data

Here’s a not-so-fun fact: with 12 days yet to report, 2022 had 279 days where the daily hospitalization count was over 800 people. In 2021, it was 52; in 2020, it was 12 (the last 12 days of the year).

279 - 52 - 12. Tell me again that COVID is over.

My last blog post of the year is a deep dive into how I use an AutoPkg recipe to package up scripts that I want Outset to run (for example, to set a default configuration for the users in my computer labs):
