You know, Desert 2 is probably the best static Mojave wallpaper. It has enough light parts for the daytime, yet it also is generally dark enough to work well in dim lighting. Not many photographs are like that.

I art-directed a website. The end boss was finding out how to make the black parts of a black-on-transparent image a light gray after finding out that CSS can’t do this itself yet.

I want to like exa, but its default color choices are hot garbage. Don’t these people who use purple ever try using a terminal with a black background?

Interestingly enough, Visual Studio Code keeps running bash as its preferred shell, even though it isn’t the login shell anymore.

@kas now that I understand fish enough to port over the contents of my .bashrc and .bash_profile, I’m starting to get used to it. How’s having different shell preferences for login/interactive treating you?

I wanted to feel productive this evening, but I didn’t want to do any useful work. In related news, I’ve switched to https://fishshell.com/ from GPLv2 bash.

today was the day of the triennual trying of the fish shell only to go back to bash within an hour or two

@kas I wanted to like Kakoune but I liked having my option key not be an alt key more. Shame, really.

I was too lazy to look up how to write a for-loop in bash so I just ran “find . -name \*.ttf -exec woff2_compress {} \;”

Finally had cause to break open one of those Panobooks by Studio Neat. It’s so utterly pleasant to touch.

Saw a reply to one of my old posts after bypassing goatflare. I’d never heard of Balistos before. At least I don’t remember seeing it the first time around.

I expected all of my leg and foot muscles to be sore after yesterday’s four-hour hike, but I didn’t expect my traps to be sore.

Used my first webp image today. Took me a bit to figure out that I needed to put width: 100% on the img element, not on its enclosing picture element.

I reduced (sorry (not sorry)) an entire blog post into my previous twtxt post and I’m not sure if I should be happy or not. It might’ve been a perfectly adequate blog post.

Just now noticed, over an hour later, that I didn’t want a post-dinner sweet something. Guess I finally broke the habit in three days or so.

@kas I’m not discouraged at all. I now know to choose sleep at 8 PM instead of coffee. Maybe one day I’ll get lucky and just sleep the whole night through.

@kas I should have gone for the two-hour nap (to a first approximation, I can’t powernap). Ended up going to bed at 5 without having had a two-hour nap previously. Failed experiments are the price of knowledge, I guess.

not sure why a swig or three of kefir kills a post-meal sweet tooth, but it does. unsure if the 12g sugar per quarter bottle plays a part in this or not.

I went for the new thing and chose the coffee. I am not falling asleep in my chair anymore.
