I’m in kind of a funk. A weird existential funk, thinking about jobs, the communities I’m apart of, what I want to accomplish with my life, etc. Interestingly enough, creating these #happy posts is a really easy way for me to get my mind off of things. My blog’s “new post” UI just provides me with a list of page titles (hence why I complain at people when they don’t have unique per page title tags). So I just slowly read through subject lines trying to remember what this post was I read sometime in the last ten days.

I’m currently sitting on a chair up in rainy Northern California. Listening to music, drinking coffee and browsing the internet. Political news has continued to be incredibly depressing, so let’s focus on the #happy.

12 Days, 12 Endorsements!

#623 / / Nat Welch

It’s twelve days until the election, and twelve is my favorite number, so I figure I’d list my twelve favorite endorsements of HRC in no particular order. Note that some of these I love because of what they are saying, not nessisarily because I love the person. In other cases, I love what they are saying and love the work they do.

"Free" SSL on Heroku

#619 / / Nat Welch

Getting and running with SSL has always been expensive. Heroku for the longest time charged $20 a month to have a custom domain with SSL, and then it usually cost a lot of money to just buy a yearly cert (anywhere from $9 to $100 or more).

A #happy post on time? What a crazy concept. Wednesday through today were pretty crazy at work (had a short notice trip down to DC), so I don’t have a ton of links, but enough to keep you crazy kids entertained.

Ok, so I actually broke my blog this week, so I couldn’t post my #happy post until I fixed it. One of the downsides of artisanal web apps: it’s your fault if they break. But we’re back, so I’m back!
