Notes for week 50 of 2021
Packed meeting week with little time for anything. I really look forward to things slowing down and having time for actual work.
I did my first all-hands presentation to ramp people up around a project I invented. It went reasonably well, now the question remains if the work will actually get done.
The Czech implementation of D&D’s d20 was delivered to me! Kudos to everyone involved.
- Spec Markdown looks really cool for its use case
- myrepos if you need to work on top of a collection of git repositories, but want to avoid monoreop
- There are a lot of “computer network names” in MacOS. To set them all:
scutil --set ComputerName “newname” scutil --set LocalHostName “newname” scutil --set HostName “newname”
- Algernon’s Law : your body is already mostly optimal, so adding more things is unlikely to have large positive effects unless there’s some really good reason (h/t Scott Suskin)
- I’ve walked 6 km. I’ve been active for 3.1 hours during 6 activities. This week’s max speed was 55.7 km/h and I conquered 37 elevation meters.
Recommended Readings From This Week
- Why Tailwind Isn’t for Me: From my short usage, I got a similar feeling
- Silicon Valley runs on Saudi: The Saudi’s soft power is doing well
- This is the first house to be 3D printed from raw earth: so cool! First, I like the idea of in-place building. But second, I really like the nonrectangular shapes. This has a proper potential.
- Have you travelled through solar plasma recently?
