typeset everything in lowercase but use em-dash

ugh just accidentally discarded a huge org-capture buffer where I had written a large journal article and emacs doesn't keep a recovery file for those buffers 😭

Anyone ever do that thing where you realize someone you respect blocked them, so you go through all your public messages/tweets with a fine tooth comb trying to work out if you said anything that went over the line, and spend the rest of the evening worrying about it?

Hahaha no me neither definitely not

pro tip 

since all new code is technical debt, make sure to name all your functions "FIXME1" "FIXME2" etc so you know to delete them in the future

can anyone recommend a good destination for open collective donations?

Right now it's as cheap to get a one way flight from Berlin to NYC than it is from Berlin to London if you want to leave tomorrow.

Always good to see people unionizing ❤️. Extra amazing if this happens in Silicon Valley wired.com/story/labor-board-ba

The worst part about recovering from surgery is the bit where you can't go out into the sun, and you feel the beautiful end-summer/autumnal weather slipping away from you.

Well, I suppose the worst part is probably the pain and the sleep disturbance etc, but lost potential is far worse :D

so, here is a thing i have been working on for the past few years. it's a VST synth, and it's finally shaping up for a public release hopefully before the month is out (potentially going to drop it at revision).

i'm currently reworking the UI – just got live modulation display readouts working earlier today. the UI is completely openGL and the knobs are all drawn with distance fields in fragment shaders
