Link dump

Yeah, I’ve been neglecting this place more than a little bit. I’ve also been building up literally thousands of interesting tweets, articles, and links I want to read/share with all y’all. Worse, some of them actually made it into the blog here and I never actually posted them. So here’s a start at a fix.

How to find the IP address of something attached to the Airport Extreme. It wasn’t available at all for years, and now it’s there, even if it’s not obvious.

Bacon bourbon brownie recipe I want to try – anyone gutsy enough to try it with me? (Nighthawk already said no.)

And while we’re on the subject of neat recipes, here’s one for lavender cupcakes that I want to try.

A great short story about why privacy matters.

How to build an upside-down fire because someday I will have a fireplace again.

Clean out Launchpad completely
