I spent a little time unwinding and hobby-hacking recently in Rust. Haven't used it in probably five years. Surprised and pleased at many things that have grown in the meantime (holy shit y'all been busy writing crates), but mostly enjoying the feeling of everything being exactly where I expect it to be. Like a custom-built bike or something. Spoiled, grinning.

This bad girl is 19ft across and can cut through 70ft of hard rock in 34 hours. She'll be put to work 5 days a week, and will rest on 6th and 7th days for sharpening her claws and what not.

Local school kids have named her MaMaJo, after the area's three rivers (Maumee, St Marys, and St Johns).

She was on public display today.

(My wife worked on the geotechnical site investigation for this project. We went to Indiana to see the tunnel boring machine and to hang out with old friends.)

LB: Can vouch for Better World Books. Have ordered from them before and had zero problems.

If you're sick of Amazon and need a bookstore alternative betterworldbooks.com sells used books for 1/3 the price, carbon offsets shipping, and donates to literacy programs for kids.

Who are these little red people and what are them doing the milkweed pods?

I grew up without computers (without electricity, even), so what possibly can the exhibits mean to me? Do I want to find out?

Another visitor from yesterday. 🦋

I am declaring this program of throwing some sunflower and zinnia seeds randomly in the yard and letting milkweeds etc just be a Great Success.
