+## April 2023
+As Ewan McGregor once said: "Hello there!"
+This month I did some more writing, tended the gardens, and got caught up on
+a few things I've been wanting to do for a bit but which were overshadowed by
+other things going on in life.
+This month I migrated my repositories off of SourceHut and onto the [Gitea
+instance I host](https://git.jaderune.net/jbauer) since I didn't see a point in
+continuing to pay for SourceHut (or needing to pay when it goes into Beta
+soon™) when I already was paying to host this git forge. Plus, I already have
+a barebones way for people to view my repositories over at
+[git.paritybit.ca](http://git.paritybit.ca), so having both a plain and more
+flashy way for people to view my repos is nice. I also like [the activity
+The gardens (both physical and digital) have undergone more cleaning, trimming,
+and sweeping up of old stuff that no longer fits or serves a purpose. In my
+physical garden I've started radish, tomato, pepper, lettuce, cilantro, dill,
+chives, and basil seedlings which are coming along nicely. In my digital garden
+I've done a small re-organization and eliminated the opinions section since it
+grew stale, but freshened up and re-planted my opinions on [software
+licensing](/garden/software-licensing), now complete with a rant about the ISC
+license controversy 😃.
+Thanks to [Devine](http://xxiivv.com), I've been playing around with [dbanay's
+implementation of Smalltalk-80](https://github.com/dbanay/Smalltalk), which
+I got to run on OpenBSD and FreeBSD. I haven't played around with it as much as
+I'd've liked to, but I'm hoping to get to that more in May.
+Finally, I didn't finish any books this month, but I did binge-read a novel's
+worth of [r/nosleep](https://old.reddit.com/r/nosleep) stories which was fun.
+It's like reading the [Goosebumps](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goosebumps)
+novels from my childhood.
+If you're looking for something awesome to watch, check out [this
+talk](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZZgQ3MoNJUQ&t=22099s) by [Ramsey
+Nasser](http://nas.sr) at Causal Islands 2023 titled "How to Write a Joke That
+Will Still Be Funny in Two Thousand Years" regarding the future of computing.
+Stick around after that for an equally great talk by [Maggie
+Appleton](http://maggieappleton.com/) about the ramifications of the recent
+leap forward in "AI" tech.
+That's all I've got for now! Byeeee o/
## March 2023
Another month, another update.
