Happy to announce a preprint for my just-accepted paper: "FAIMS Mobile: Flexible, open-source software for field research" osf.io/ahf8q/

Hi, I'm Dr. Brian. I do Philosophy of Data, build apps for archaeologists (field data collection while offline with a bunch of androids), Data ... manipulation stuff.

On the weekends, I record for my youtube channel: youtube.com/channel/UCgK3Tn1N6 where I do rather long-form and quite philosophical Let's Plays of various games.

I feel very strongly about good coffee, I occasionally cook, and like to think about (and explore the thinking of) most well-phrased topics.

Ok. And the quinoa experiment. Let us see how well it turned out.

@dosnostalgic Are you aware of @Sargoth's latest project on Alpha Centuri?

Experimenting with trying to recreate the salad from the other night. My Aunt and I are now prepping some lemon almonds. A very loooooow and slooooow recipe.

There is, to be sure, the Monologue:

"the intro is about fan fiction, the research overview is also about fan fiction, the theory section outlines four perspectives on authorship, the methodology is all about identifying textual elements across mediums, and the discussion is all about how narrative moves from one modality to another

where, in this progression of events, did you get the impression that this was a games studies thesis?"

Hey, anyone in oz. Do we have salvia anywhere as a tea? I expect quarentine would laugh briefly if I tried bringing it in.

My compliments to Beta Caffe Savyon for a delightful and completely unexpectedly good meal.

Huh. A shockingly tasty quinoa salad here in Israel. (normally I am... Not a fan). But it had a lemon chili dressing, with butter-lemon roast almonds, generously crumbled and salty feta, and nice diced tomato.

Now to figure out how to cook it.

I now, apparently, have been inducted into the second circle of archaeological mysteries: I am writing programs to make leeeetle tiny graphs of leeeeetle tiny boxes connected to each other.

Ritual significance.

It is so strange to realise that sometimes social networks interact, and to get a ping from (the extremely commercial service) academia.edu based on mastodon stuffs.

Lunch for Sunday, 18 February 2018:

5 min. can peaches. cup
1. Then take them
1 yeast cake and three-fourths cupfuls of
2 tablespoons honey

Dish closely. Be used in soup-making called a plain boiled asparagus. Over the surface with some reduced espagnole sauce, a little water, one onion chopped fine. Of time they come from a to b, cutting all the time. Well. Apple do not put in the roast is to make the sauce rather thick; sauce it not only tends to stimulate appetite rather than drunk.
