Democrats don’t need to smuggle illegal immigrants into the US to grow their voter base. Republicans do it for them every time they take away more of our rights.

Run Ollama In The Menu Bar On macOS With Custom Host Bindings

By default ollama runs on the localhost IP address of But if you want to host it on macOS somewhere else, it requires a system-wide environment variable change. The developers of ollama recommend running this command, and then relaunching ollama:

launchctl setenv OLLAMA_HOST ""

This works great! If you want to run this automatically at startup you can use a small AppleScript to create an application, and then add that application to your Login Items.

First, open Script Editor and paste the following code:

do shell script "launchctl setenv OLLAMA_HOST \"\""
tell application "Ollama" to run

This will bind all IP addresses to ollama and then launch it. Obviously, you can bind any specific IP address you like.

Next, in the File menu use the Export command to create an Application that is signed to run locally. Quit Script Editor and then put the new application in your Applications folder.

Finally, search for “Login Items” in System Settings. Remove any existing Ollama application from the list, and add your application.

Now when you restart and sign in, your application will launch, set the environment variable for the host binding, launch Ollama, and quit.

So if IVF embryos are legally considered children can we claim them as dependents on our taxes? Can we do this every year since they never physically age? Do they legally age each year giving them the right to vote in 18 years? If they were implanted after 20 years would they qualify for social security at age 35? I have questions.

Sometimes I think that parents send infuriating MAGA texts to their kids just to get a text message from them between holidays.

MAGA is a dirty word. It’s a word that requires blind support for Trump; leave your critical thinking skills at the door. Bend to your confirmation bias. As Trump once said at a Veterans of Foreign Wars Convention in Kansas City, Mo, “don’t believe what you’re reading or seeing”. And his credulous supporters are happy to oblige. It’s madness.

As a software developer, when I hear the term “alpha male” I think these males must be unstable, missing important features, ridden with flaws, and not fit for public use.
