this morning I finished a long writeup of the #cyberdeck construction process across four different prototypes, starting over a year ago to the mark IV build I completed last week

atreus.technomancy.us/decklog and
atreus.technomancy.us/decklog2

Goals for the week:

- Plan my next raised bed garden
- Ship my hyper minimal website/blog engine.

My only goal right now is to cut my expenses and retire early. That way I can burn every single bridge I'm forced to maintain so that I can continue to exist in capitalism and support my family.
