Got some free real estate for new stickers on my water bottle, looking forward to filling that


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.

Scribbling awful plans in notebooks hoping my day brain has enough energy to follow through, lying awake anxious for the tired morning ahead

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 ;)


I am using this PELA Blocks openscad library to add mouting points for techic cross-axles which I can use to bind the kit together while still storing flat and making modular mounts for my USB-c hub and battery pack. all of this in to a 10 litre day pack.

but now i have to deal with printing and tweaking and calibrating... the 3d printing iteration cycle kind of sucks still

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

bike consumerism 

i bought a suspension drop post for my bike and now i have to start mapping out my handlebars i guess

I can't wait to attend a tech conference again. There's something so recharging, so invigorating, to wake up at dawn after hacking all night and go out on to the hotel courtyard and do code katas with the other conference goers. The sun warms your bones as you and fifteen fellow acolytes in the prime of our lives implement a string formatter or search function in syncronized vim instances with ne'er a single superfluous motion spent in insert mode. Our voices amplify each other and rouse the other hackers: the day's talks will soon begin.

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. link This Redacted collection compiling all the use of the amen break is pretty neat.

prototyping an aball-compatible trackball module for the atreus

3d printed new risers for my atreus. they're not balanced and they're ugly but they printed on 5 year old PLA that i have been keeping in my living room. newer, nicer PLA coming this week.

today i'm brewing a new puerh , my first bing from the local lovelies at floating leaves

i'm ... still not sold on puerh i guess. i like it enough and it's complex and interesting but i am getting soo much enjoyment and growth out of oolongs and japanese green teas that it feels silly to dilute myself further exploring deeply. this is nice after half a dozen infusions though, i could see this getting me through quite a long morning in a way that my other teas simply can't.
