i should set up a database to hold all the results of my weird little experiments, but the real problem in that is keeping the source code synced with each row so it's all reproducible.

so that is quite the problem since it also depends somewhat on the libraries i'm using and all that. plus it's actually important to keep any bugs and hacks in the code and so something like git/svn probably wouldn't make sense

and i'd probably want to retrospectively tag results based on those traits for filtering when i'm pulling the data out and ugh everything is terrible

i did write a script once that tar-gz'd itself and its output each execution but that was obnoxious and that's definitely not a database
