In other news I was unsuccessful in my latest attempt to log into the Social Security Administration to reprint the form I need to fill out to change my name (which I finalized on January 5, 2022).

After much nudging from Mitch we finally got it done. There was a long period during 2020 and 2021 where it couldn't happen because they were not doing unnecessary live court appearances.

I also updated all my templates (copyright), font sizes, formatting. Grim, but now it is done for the year!
