Since Last We Spoke, 8-22-16

I’m heading to Maxwell AFB tomorrow for a few days, then on to Minot AFB (after 2 weeks with the Navy). This month has been alternating between teaching and court–I barely recognize my wife. No real break in sight, which is not a complaint, but a status update for sure. Also can I fill you in on a little secret? In the midst of all this chaos, I’m working on a full FHO redesign, so when you don’t see me here, I’m behind the scenes, tinkering with the guts of this thing. I cannot wait to show you. In the meantime, shall we get to today’s business? Because I’ve run across some fascinating things online since last we spoke:

No surprise, this.
