I built a garden box from a section of fence the neighbor had discarded. I think cedar, but may be pine.

I've got it planted now with early potatoes (first time planting potatoes) and will probably add some sugar snap peas once the nights warm up in the next few days.

I think I'm still low on garden space. Not much room for the broccoli and lettuces I want to plant.

once I get home I grab my battery charger and head back out on my lil bike. it's actually a really beautiful drive along the waterfront thru a wooded area; honestly quite peaceful. I plug in the charger but it's only capable of putting out 750ma so I ask the attendant if I can leave it there. it's charging right now, and I'm planning on going to try to start it again in a few hours.

As a former beekeeper, I'll never not share something like this:

"Honey bee behaviours within the hive"

At the bottom it includes 18 videos of bee behavior in cutaway cells. It's super fascinating! (Also it's CC licensed, so share neat bee facts!)


Maple syruping going well this year. Just a single tap to keep from getting overwhelmed on the boiling side, but already on the second batch.

I'm still trying to figure out the easiest way to filter the finished syrup in a small home setting like this.

“The easiest emotional state to generate algorithmically is tribal outrage. It’s a simple and primal emotion. We, as the tech industry, have built a model that we make money when we piss people off. And everyone’s pissed off now, we’ve made a lot of money and people are like, what went wrong? Well, everything went exactly as planned.”

“The central metaphor of the book is that we’re often in “soldier mindset,” motivated to defend our ideas against threatening evidence or arguments. And scout mindset is an alternative to that - a scout’s goal isn’t to defend, but to go out and get an accurate map of reality.”

If you want to help FOSS audio in general, he's a total VIP :D

The domestic robot's lidar has detected evidence of a mirror universe.

You think maintaining software is boring? Let me tell you about boring “There was a layer of dust in this moraine, and I just put it in a plastic bag and I’ve been working on it for the last — how long is it? — almost 15 years. […] I collected 6 kilograms of dust, and I’m about halfway through, and I’ve got over 3,000 particles. And I probably missed quite a few, too. Materials I found in the moraine later showed that it’s been collecting dust for at least 700,000 years.”—Matthew Genge

This is interesting. As fast as light is, it's rather slow when you take into account the vastness of space.

“You can't succeed if you haven't decided what you intend to accomplish. More important, you can't fail. You can enjoy all the satisfaction of completing a dozen tasks a day without making any progress toward a single goal.” I think that’s also about constant configuring of our tools but not doing much with them 🤷

Just flicking through, spotted this. It's still pretty much true (the book was published in 1984).
