When you’re walking around downtown and the church bells toll the hour, everything takes on a more portentous quality. I’m not religious but I’m glad the church is nearby to do that.

Some this morning
— a Subaru SVX being driven very gingerly by an old man
— a white van with “Landscaping Services” on the side, but multiple antennas and what looked like a LIDAR sensor on the roof
— a Cybertruck with a shiny gold wrap, looking like the world’s ugliest Christmas tree ornament

Paperback books used to routinely have interesting “gimmick” covers, with shiny foil, embossing, and die cut shapes. There’s a DIY trend to re-bind paperback books (into custom hardcovers). There’s a DIY card making trend with foil, embossing, and die cuts.

What if those creative forces aligned to re-bind paperbacks with the flashy gimmick covers they always deserved?

This shit doesn't make sense to me. Gravity says they can deliver 500kW with NO UTILITY UPGRADES. If you’ve ever visited a Supercharger site, you’ve probably noticed the ginormous transformers nearby. The only way I know of to negate this need is with ridiculously large batteries on site, and how the fuck do you install batteries of this size unless they are going underground in this situation? How do you put out a fire if it starts underneath the sidewalk?

People who are good with money, I have a question. What am I (big, long term)saving for? I already bought the house; I have no debt besides the mortgage, which is at a low rate & I pay extra principles every month. I don’t & won’t have kids, so no saving for college. I’m paying into the (very good) state pension system.

I do save, quite a bit, but it’s primarily what I label the “house fixing fund,” as the house does need a lot of that. What else am I supposed to be worrying about?

@rowmyboat some people also like to have a Long Term Care Insurance policy, but I don’t know if those are a good value or not.

Someone just sent me a text saying someone was flaunting something in a context that suggested ambiguously they meant flaut. So I asked them if they meant flauting and discovered that iPhone autocorrect really doesn’t believe that flaut is a word.

I hate citing to 1984, but I do worry that predictive text is flattening our vocabulary. That it’s trying to suppress a word like flaut (given the techbro tendency to flaut rules) makes me very suspicious.

also, after the fourts time i typed flaut in this post, autocorrect froze. i dont know if that meand anythinf.

Sometimes the way people phrase things is so telling. For instance, telling women they should be "taking care of" their husband and children. Another adult doesn't need taken care of like a child, what you want is for women to be a Sex Mom.

I’m the kind of recently-thawed Neanderthal who’s always resisted understanding anything about the technology I use every day; I retain an atavistic certainty that the monitor IS the computer.

Despite these, uh, endearing eccentricities, I just asked @jdekg to put the on my computer. I think it’s time.

I still refuse to understand anything, but the thing I refuse to understand will now be Linuxy instead of Windowsy.

Okay, time to go sit in a chilly room and spend hours lining up fruit fly eggs in neat little rows and injecting DNA into them.

Well, I was planning to get some friends together this weekend...but everyone's going away. Poo.

So I'll so some cleaning, some reading, and maybe take a day and ramble in the car with a notebook and a camera and see what I can see.
