Hi. My name is Brian. I write Ruby and Clojure code for a living. Once upon a time I helped write a book (http://www.clojurebook.com/). I have a blog I should update but rarely do (https://cdaddr.com). I immigrated to Canada a few years ago. I'm a cool guy?
I enjoy computers and games and music and art and other normal human activities. Most of all, I like learning new things.
I feel like I have code at work that'd be a great fit for Rust, but I'm never going to find time to get good at Rust or rewrite it all.
Minimalizing my entire house this weekend. I feel a creative mood coming on soon, and I need my atmosphere to be pleasant.
Becoming a Canadian citizen tomorrow. I'm happy that I get to vote, that international travel will be easier, that I can't be kicked out of the country at random. Still finding it hard to muster up a nationalistic fervor. Canada is cool, so are other places, I don't feel like where I live is part of my identity.
Giant server migration completed. Only 5 hours longer than I expected. That's a load off my shoulders though.
It looks like Matomo (Piwik) will do the job. Thanks for the recommends.
What's a good self-hosted stats tracker for websites? A "how many people are looking at my website and what are the most common referrers/browsers/etc" kind of thing. A more ethical replacement for Google Analytics, in other words. Anyone know a good one?
Currently learning SDL2. There are gaps in my gamedev knowledge that are only going to get filled in by playing around in the mud for a while.
I spent an evening cleaning up my vimrc. Does that count as spring cleaning?
My book was in Humble Bundle a while ago, and it looks like it sold as many copies as right after release, which hasn't happened for years. Happy surprise.
Confession: I don't know the difference between Boost and Favourite, so I pick one randomly every time.

My new piano teacher is awesome. She offered to teach me to analyze and deconstruct video game music.
