sometimes it'd be nice to have access to a proper shop with soundproofing or smth for those late-night projects

I really want to fire up some power tools to finish building the base for this little robot chassis I'm working on, but it's 10:30pm and I have neighbors above and below me and so that seems inconsiderate.

This looks like tomorrow's project 😥

emotional problem-solving strategy for tonight; bourbon and rimbaud

Someone on Twitter mentioned that in some regions of Germany, a common idiom for whenever there's mist in the forest is "The foxes are making coffee", and thought the image was evocative enough for an illustration.

Well, I took the bait! 🦊☕

For the past few days I've been listening to american folk music as background noise while I work, and I've been using youtube, which I normally don't do. My strategy is to find something interesting that I like and then to let the autoplay algorithm decide what's next.

I've done this probably 15 times in the past few days, and no matter what the seed is, it always seems to take less than an hour to devolve into an endless loop of Mandolin Orange.

I don't necessarily dislike the band, but why?

What a great video, even for a dummy like me. And to think that the J58 was designed in the early 60's!

Poorly written datasheets are just a colossal waste of everyone's time.

Tonight I needlessly threw away two hours on a silly motor driver 😡

ooooohhh, this "delete and redraft" thing is dope. 😜

I love this rendition of the song; somehow it just seems awfully human.

Bowie was such a great performer and I wish I could have seen something like this live.

Updating all the things tonight!

positive: this mastodon instance is now on 2.7.1

negative: I can no longer log in to my personal wiki 🧐

I really want to like org-mode; I just kinda don't.

I know people who swear by it as a simplistic replacement for all the other tooling in your life, and I already have a running TODO list and personal wiki and similar crap, but honestly I don't ever see myself replacing any of that with something worse just because I can feel good about interacting with it inside of emacs.

So I have two options for this morning: old reliable, and something that apparently wants me dead.

This stuff better turn me into an astronaut or something...

just flambéd the crap out of some crepes, and as a bonus got to test out the fire alarms in my apartment 🔥

planning on doing the 2.7 update next weekend so I can play with all these new toys I keep hearing about

I may have borked my knee a bit more seriously last night than I thought. 😔 People in this city really need to be better about shoveling/salting their sidewalks.

I guess if I can't run for a while maybe it's time to get more serious about swimming?

lol, this is amazing:

I just wish I had more excuses to write (really anything) with LaTeX

Somebody has animated sheet music of John Coltrane's saxophone, holy shit. Actually a little dizzying to watch, but so much fun too.

I think you leave some part of yourself in the last place you visit, and you don't get to pick it back up until you leave home again.

Getting ready for day 2 of post-break work. It's always hard to go back to normal life after taking time off.

small, relaxed instance for friends
