I gave up after an hour into the commute, when I'd only gone about 10 miles

happy sunday. i played with a guitar tuning meant for recreating bagpipe tunes and ended up with a thing:

i'm also still fond of this one. it went through several iterations and i don't really know how it ended up here, but it was a lot of fun.


another thing i'm proud of. the quality isn't great, but i'm glad i finally recorded it, because i procrastinated for probably 5 years.


i also still like this song, even though it's more than a year old, and even though i wrote it, and even though the strings sound kinda cheesy now.



i am still incredibly proud of this tune, the mixing on this tune, and the fact that i even recorded this considering i forgot how to record music for 4+ years.

i bet it's totally possible to abuse GH Actions to work as a severless platform + cron job. have an action that sleeps for some period of time, then does something, then does another thing that ends up re-triggering the same action 🤔

do you ever have one of those days where legacy code and systems just completely kicked your ass and you don't even know why you went into software instead of raising goats or running a used book store? i definitely had one of those days today.

i've never found a computer chair that is actually comfortable, but that might be because i sit like someone who doesn't know how chairs work. i think sitting lower to the floor like this might help.

in the interest of my back, my small apartment, and just wanting to own less stuff, i got rid of the table i was using as a desk and the computer chair i picked up on sale.

now my desk area is four folding lap tables and a buckwheat-filled pouf thing. we'll see if i regret this in a few days.

oh no, the hackers have a password i used six years ago and they recorded videos of me through my webcam which is covered in tape, and they have my contacts from facebook messenger even though i don't have a facebook account! what do i do!

most of these are untested, but probably at least kinda work. clearly i'm interested in config right now.

Do you run #Linux? Do you keep notes on how to (a) setup a fresh install or (b) install and config programs/widgets, etc? Like a sort of personal Linux user documentation...

I'm curious how you create and store those notes. Maybe it's bash script with comments, or a txt doc that's a list of good reference URLs?

Here's what my Linux notes look like: sts10.github.io/linux-book/wel

i'm excited to write this C, it's going to solve a very tough problem in a very small amount of code
