Fun way to find random documents. Go to Google search, and search for
Feel free to replace the word "the" with any other innocuous word. You'll get a bunch of random PDFs.

I haven't been on as much since I'm working full time, but it looks like there are a lot of new faces and instances on the federation timeline .. lots of new people who haven't blocked me yet for my radical centrist views.

I spent a good part of yesterday migrating several databases to the latest version. They are now all using PostgreSQL 11.x

A big thank you to all the folk who make Postgres such a great DB.
