A webdev microtip.
Use the leading double-slash syntax to make sure absolute image/link URIs load in both HTTP and HTTPS contexts. Just omit the protocol name and your resources will work in both environments.

I feel like a pervert, being somewhere I’m not supposed to be, as I look out over Central Europe from a dizzying altitude. Everything seems simpler up here despite being aware of the complexity of flight.
Lonely in a way, but it’s refreshing to feel fully committed to something with a clear end.
A baby is crying like it’s supposed to, drowning out the tiny world below. Most seem uninterested by the unique perspective of flight – we’re so far away from our natural habitat. We need bright pictures to flick through, stupid articles in vacuous magazines and the latest pseudoscience change-your-life-in-a-week book to be content.
We are flying monkeys right now, for fucks sake.
I’m enjoying the brief absence from the endless media – nothing to evaluate or ignore up here. Just my seat, a window, and a small possibility that I’ll die inside a giant metal bird, leaving behind an unsigned will on my coffee table and a bookcase full of the pseudoscience books I mentioned earlier.
I should probably mention my wife in what may be my final moments. Sorry about the will, dear.
Please look after my books.
