An Update From McKinley Labs - October 6th, 2021

As you may know, mckinley.cc is totally handmade. Outside of the occasional sed command to change headers and such, all changes are made manually in a text editor.

Documents ≠ Programs - August 31st, 2021

I've recently become active again on twtxt.net, the platform that puts the "social" in "anti-social social media". There is a lot of intelligent discussion to be had there, and for the past couple days a discussion has been going on about technology buzzwords and, later, unnecessary complexity on websites. I was asked to clarify my position and, rather than try to fit it within the (admittedly quite generous) character limit, I figured it would be best to state my argument here, on my website, where I can ramble as much as I want. I get a free blog post out of it, too.

Browsers: Please stop requesting /favicon.ico automatically. - August 24th, 2021

Dear web browser developers,

Please stop automatically requesting /favicon.ico from our servers. It's annoying. Some of us don't want a favicon. Some of us haven't yet made a good one. Some of us have large 404 error pages that have to be sent if we don't comply with your "standard". Many of us have good reasons, but we all hate seeing constant 404s in our logs for /favicon.ico.
