good morning to everyone except the person who connected to my Bluetooth speaker at 7am and started playing twangy country music

consult-buffer can be configured easily with new sources of buffers. org-roam is basically a new source of buffers. this allows you to always have your org-roam at hand.

with the configuration on that page, the "priority" is (existing buffer name, file name, org-roam title) and the load is quite quick as you can see. my fingers are crackling with power, especially if I figure out how to get previews to work >:)

Ghost in the Shell 

Been thinking about ghost in the shell 1995 again lately. Had an interesting reading of the last watch, that 2501 could be a (perhaps subconscious) manifestation of Kusanagi’s desire to have a separate identity from what Section 9 forces on her. Why wouldn’t she be able to manifest a fresh ghost in her timeless wandering through the net? Introduce a bug in to Section 6’s subversive programs that would grow a ghost on an inevitable course back towards her while her own ghost also whispers her towards 2501 to eventually merge to form a truly new identity apart from the limits of her owned “flesh”

gotta say: this mesh strainer is a game changer for my tea

These gray days 🥰 glad the summer gloom is back in Seattle today

Some tamago kake gohan and leftover salmon to go with it for breakfast but the tea is holding it’s own against such strong flavors.

while I have the CCE on the operating table I intend to do some work splitting the core API and helpers out in to their own module which could be shared on GitHub or so -- it's time to share this system and set of processes, but I aim to draw some pretty clear lines around the part that are "my" system, and the core elements composing it, and to re-assess the values that got the system to its current state.

This sort of "document collection as application" system interests me and is pulling at the same corners of the proverbial sheet as I am with my cce config generator and arcology site engine, org-roam really changed up the game by giving people easy access and inspiration in a sqlite3 database

Tonight I stumbled on vino, a cool hypermedia application which uses metadata stored in org-mode documents to draw reports and insights on one's wine collection. I'm interested in adapting this idea to my drinking ...

Today I am writing awful lisp to make a few small evil-mode minor-modes for my few X11 applications. experiments in modal interfaces following successful experiments with


The local tea cafe sold me a kabusecha and told me it’s one of the best green teas I could get my hands on. I told the seller I might call his bluff. I might. Can you tell the difference just by looking at these two shaded senchas? Surely you can taste it if you look hard enough.

Spring Japanese harvest came in today. Spring sencha is such a joy! Looking most forward to trying the “first nightmare” white tea processed from tea buds which suffered an overnight frost in April, and the intern black tea. In the meantime, sipping color in to my life with a shaded sencha. ☺️
I think I will have quite enough green tea to get through to next year or at least fall harvest ;)

did some 3d designing today, working on a cantilever'd stand to put my GPD pocket over my atreus keyboard so that i can keep this little 7 inch laptop in my bag for park days and write in the sun

caves of qud 

I'm a big fan of Yurl, they could kick my ass because they are very tough. caves of qud's new wander mode is a lot of fun because you can run around the world trading stories with folks like this sentient cucumber vine and instead of everything immediately killing me, only very aggressive things will immediately and only cost me an hour's playtime spent in jungles and ruins. you can set more checkpoints, but my personal rule is to not use the manual checkpointing, town saves only. very relaxing way to play, especially since i can roleplay as a very frail explorer-researcher bounding through this world of constant bloody conflict between goatfolk and masked foragers, rifling through trash for secrets

Love all the Scotch Broom that’s in bloom right now

I found a PDF showcasing some of the biggest trees in the olympic national forest a few hours west of Seattle. I visited a few of them recently, and I think you should too. the western side of the olympics is quiet logging country, but the national forest and national park are full of these ancient beautiful trees, hundred year old trees growing out of much older mother logs

the world's largest sitka spruce is estimated to be roughly 1000 years old, the tree stands 191 feet tall, 17.7 feet in diameter, is on private land in Quinalt but there's a public path to see it.

what i believe was once the the world's largest western red cedar is a 20 minute drive north, there's a sign marked "big cedar tree" on the US-101. A storm felled it in 2014, but it's still alive and healing. It's estimated to be 1000 years old, too. the new champion is the Duncan Cedar which I didn't visit.

pictures don't do them justice, obviously.
