I’m just a simple country sociologist, but this fawning pro-NFT article seems quantitatively unsteady with assertions like “assume you instantly zero out 50% commission to double your revenue,” and “just slice your art infinitely to capture more revenue under the demand curve.”

I’ve been using vim long enough that I’m pretty comfortable with it most of the time. I’m always happy to learn more, and the first part of this vim tutorial has some things that I missed the first time I learned the basics.👍

Revised my /now page over the weekend. I’ve been replacing the old notes entirely, but wonder if I should keep it as a running log, instead.

Guess I should finally figure out how to put things on Linode so I don’t have to restart the discord bot all the time at the tilde account.

A Twitter friend turned me on to these amazing looking desktop PCs from System76, and I’ve concluded that we need lots more companies making high end computers that look like furniture, again.

All I needed today was to make a boot/install disk, and yet: in the decades of personal computing leftovers in drawers and boxes around this house, there’s not one single USB flash drive. Inconceivable. Like, I have a little envelope of CompactFlash cards, and a roller mouse.

Roon produces really nice composited images for sharing, but they’re still essentially isolated from the rest of the world – there’s no link as part of its sharing output. Last night I spent just enough time getting familiar enough with roon-extension-http-api to figure out how to link from its view of catalog or the now playing screen out to songwhip, which will produce a link to several listening platforms and stores.

Currently: appending _test to a number of workflow inputs and outputs and am confident this will not incur unanticipated consequences later.
