Writing bindings to inotify in Akku+Chez to make the memex automatically restart Supertag when the database SQL dump changes. It's suprisingly nice, reminds me of LuaJIT's FFI.
Trying to keep it portable, hopefully it will run on any Scheme that (r6rs pffi) supports.

There are two more versions, one with Dorcas wearing vinyl and the other with both of them nude. And yes, the last version shows no tattoos, they cover a lot of skin and I’m still designing them ✨

Hay dos versiones más, una con Dorcas llevando vinilo y otra en la que ambes están desnudes. Y sí, no hay tatuajes en la última, cubren un montón de piel y aún están en proceso de diseño ✨

do you take certain actions due to your dreams?
e.g. seeing someone you haven't seen in awhile in your dreams and then deciding to contact them the next day. or going to that place from your dreams or wearing that outfit. or consider them as a signal to something that is true

A lot of the work I do in the pandemic patch and invasive plant removal is a way of asking the questions of "Whose land is this?" "Who is it for?" "Who has authority to change and work on it?"
None of the work I do is official in any way. Its not work done with the city's approval. It's just work I started doing because I wanted it to exist.
I granted myself authority to work on these woods. To remove plants in it and to grow new ones.
While I have granted myself authority, it isn't my land. Nor is it the city's.
I'm living on colonized land as a white settler. The land was never ceded and doesn't truly belong to the city, the province or the country.
My work is a rejection of the governments colonial power but at the same time its a building of my own white colonial authority.
Who am I to grant myself this permission?

(This is part writing and processing aloud and part genuine asking for peoples thoughts and ideas)

It's interesting that just three decades after Pripyat was abandoned because of the Chernobyl disaster, the forest has already reclaimed the city.

Don't let anyone convince you that reforestation is difficult. It'll happen all by itself, if people allow it to.

There are far too many expressions like “it’s always the last place you look” which are tremendously memetic and encode no discernible information

I like the note at the end of Drew's latest blog post[1]. I was hoping he wasn't a lost cause and it looks I was right to hope.
Also read this next to Chris Webber's latest blog post[2].

Oh, a 2>/dev/null was masking the error. Lovely. It was a missing cc error. I'll have some choice patches for the developers.

what's the term for horizontal integration causing issues for consumers due to many facets of your life being tied to the whims of a single company?

"monopoly" doesn't quite capture it.

Would there be a meaningful difference between an "online community" and a community if travel was free/cheap and borders were abolished?

"The beavers dug underground alongside the creek to reach the cable, which is buried about three feet underground and protected by a 4.5-inch thick conduit. The beavers first chewed through the conduit before chewing through the cable in multiple locations.

They also appear to be using Telus materials to build their home. There is fibre marking tape, usually buried underground, on top of their dam."

Good, good beavers.
