just wanted to share this paragraph I wrote for nanowrimo:

The toys on her floor mostly consisted of plastic bricks, which had the predictable effect of turning most of her room into a caltrop-ridden death trap. She, for her part, had a *system*. Which is to say, she had a path cleared that was just wide enough for her to walk from her door to her bed without subjecting herself to untold amounts of pain that any potential visitors would most likely experience. The rest of her room was fair game, with the little bricks of pure agony scattered around like she was expecting a cavalry charge.

been getting some nice work done on my forum software project, ECF. it now uses Argon2id instead of PBKDF2 for password hashing, I added an optimization for posts, simplified some stuff, added thread view counting... not many new features but it's moving along

though as usual I have no idea what I want to work on next

feels good to get a pull request going! didn't get #69 like I did for cowlib, but 35 is a decent number

I snuck in two stealth puns in the first paragraph, hell yeah

they're both bad and only one of them makes any real sense but whatever

when writing in the flow, it's easy to get lost in the endless expanse of words and clauses, drifting from one to the next as they spring forth like so many snowflakes in a frigid winter blizzard

but editing, I comb it over and over like a middle aged priest. check it all two or five times. every word honed to perfection, every sentence a finely tuned machine thrumming with power, every paragraph at its full potential. it's not any less artistic, but margins for both error and profit are slim


I wake up and I'm another year older, funny how that works

finally getting the oreo update for my phone, wheeee

writing and wondering how to put the pieces I have together. I know the pieces I have are good, but stringing them together is a whole other problem. if I can figure this out I'm sure I'll have something good though...

uuuugh, the RAM I ordered is bad :c

hopefully ebay's money back guarantee actually works x.x

I dunno why but making silly bash one-liners that I can feed into "watch" is fun

dammit I wanted to go to the post office to pick up my RAM but I forgot it's labor day so it's almost certainly closed


debating whether to head down to the post office or not... it closed a couple hours ago and it's unlikely that the RAM I got would fit in my tiny PO box, unless it was put into one of those keyed delivery boxes, so getting my RAM doesn't seem likely

buuuut it would be a good excuse to go grab some food...

is there any word that means *precisely* the opposite of "oxymoron"? "redundant" works but it's not specific enough...

trying to shape up my resume, paraphrasing my previous supervisor telling me "you really know your shit" is an interesting exercise


I want to watch more but I've been watching it with @saphire and I'm not gonna skip ahead

waking up with a slight headache is never fun, but tea usually helps

... as long as I let it cool off before burning my tongue >.<

shit I forgot that my RAM is probably at my PO box by now, I should've checked that today

oh well, tomorrow it is, gotta shower and get to bed soonish anyway
