Started consoldating my typewritten pages and printed digital journals into the new lever arch binders. This is better.

I like Hugo’s Page Bundles feature. It lets me keep all of the assets related to a post in one place.

Current blogging system. It’s all in this single Org-mode file.

I’m so high on nostalgia right now. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ‎Apollo 10½: A Space Age Childhood (2022) directed by Richard Linklater

Severance is the best thing on television.

The list of changes in Emacs 28.1 is ginormous:…

I finally found a lever arch binder in US Letter size. Everything about it is better than our typical (in US) 3-ring binders. Why are they so hard to find here? (Without switching to A4 paper and annoying everyone around me, that is). Is there a petition I can sign?

I always come back to this record. I just love it.

At the time, I fancied myself the kind of person who simply must have a fancy case for their fountain pens.

Found my first fountain pen, the Waterman Philéas. It punches so far above its weight it embarrasses much more expensive pens. It’s not pretty, but I love the 2-tone art deco nib. Bought mine at Office Max at like 20 years ago.

The fanciest and most expensive iPhone case I’ve ever seen.

I would be remiss if I didn’t remind everyone using both Org mode and Hugo that ox-hugo is the bee’s knees and makes static blogging a joy rather than a chore. Kaushal Modi has done some great work here.

Speaking of enlargers. A helpful seller on eBay was kind enough to part out the Focomat IIc parallelogram he was selling and sold me only the threaded helicoid receptacle. I now, finally, have the 100mm lens mounted and can make prints from 6x6 negs. I’m very happy about this.

I tested the big Beseler in the spare room with the bare minimum of fuss and it worked! The filter mechanism is a little janky, so have work to do, but the takeaway is that I can once again make prints from 4x5 negatives!

::Break for unnecessary 45-second intro…::

Creator: “Alright! Hi Guys. Like I said, todays video is about such and such and….”

From one makeshift darkroom to another. The Beseler still works so I’m going to try printing some 4x5 negatives later. There’s no water in here, which is inconvenient, but it should be workable.

Gosh, the Technika is lovely. Shame it’s been unused for so long. Maybe I’ll fix that today.

Briefly considered going from Doom Emacs back to a home-rolled vanilla config but realized I’d just spend the next two years basically rebuilding Doom from scratch so never mind.

I like Bruce Dickinson fine, but I’d sure love to visit the alternate timeline in which Paul Di’Anno stuck around.

An email said, “You need a modern email client to view this email.” but my copy of Mu4e was released Nov. 2021 so I’m confused

Poor Olaf

Trying something with Org-roam and Hugo…
