A beautiful documentary video on a man's work renovating two stone cabins in the alps. Stunning vistas. It's slow, so highly recommend it for background viewing, but still inspirational.

Did a little coding on Glowbug today. First in a long time. With the growth of Mastodon as a social network, decided I needed to improve the cron bot daily posts for Mastodon. On twitter, it self deletes the previous post before making a new one. I was working on getting that implemented for Mastodon, so my account will not be cluttered with the bot posts.

I'll know better tomorrow if it works or not, but it should. The API is very straightforward for Mastodon.
