TIL that if you’re trying to use #rust and #webassembly together, you [seemingly] can’t pass parameters if you don’t build with --release.

It’d be great if the iOS app paged in more timeline posts as you scroll, @manton.

Heading to Las Vegas for a long weekend with family.

I’ve had my reMarkable table for about 24 hours now; hardware is great, software is close, best GPL compliance I’ve seen.

Listening to “The Art of Destroying Software”.…

Resurrected some Python + Unicode training material I put together 5 years ago. A little scary that it’s still mostly relevant.…

Anohni’s “Hopelessness” is the album I have on repeat these days. It keeps feeling more timely.


In 24 hours I’ll be an uncle again. Woah.

Really enjoying Procreate 4. Huge, free upgrade.

Finally got around to writing about how we did Product Engineering at Remind:…

Saw Patti Cake$ over the weekend. Fun mashup of film formulas, enjoyable despite any predictability.

Released an update to Hieroglyph yesterday, fixing compatibility with Sphinx 1.6. Happy that the majority of the changes came from others.

Discovered Versioneer yesterday, basically exactly how I always wanted Python version tagging to work.…

Still questions, over two years later.…

If wearing sweatpants in public means I’ve given up on life, I should have given up much sooner.

“Do your research online. Create offline.”

Reduction printing explained visually:…

Work in progress from the studio this weekend, homage to Matisse’s “Seated Pink Nude”. Reduction linocut print with selective inking. Hoping to get it finished this week! Loving the Van Dyke Brown in the background and Rubinius Red; a little Payne’s Gray and we’ll have all my faves. #wip #linocut #printmaking #relief #matisse #color #layering

As someone who still has 5.25” floppies of Brøderbund’s Print Shop, Print Shop Companion, etc, interesting to think about when my expectations around software upgrades changed.
