Got my yosmass package today from raej!


















Love the shirts! Thanks! I plan to give the bourbon a taste maybe later tonight, and the french fry seasoning will get used now that I have an air fryer to make home fries. I'll see if I can post a trip report on everything and the robot kit too after the tiny one gets a chance to lose all the pieces.

Thank you so much raej!

*edit* there's also a bag off coffee in there from a local roaster. Even the 8oz bags of coffee beans are bigger in Texas! (haw haw)

Package received! Pics incoming! Santa, these pics will not have your notes on them.

From my mysterious Santa, I have received the following bounty:




A kickass floppy disk notebook!

Funny enough, I use a superdisk for actual backups of critical note repositories that I manage with mercurial, but I unfortunately do not have any actual floppies at home.

Superdisks are nice because you can actually eject them! Modern usb sticks buffer their writes so I never feel like it's safe to unplug them until a minute after my computer says it's ok or until the disk activity LEDs stop blinking.

At least with a notebook, the only buffer is between the mind and the pen.




Meditations, by Marcus Aurelius. At 170 pages, this feels like a paperback that I can quickly skim over a few hours to get the gist of it, and then keep referencing the cool parts of it for the rest of my life or until I gift it to an intern or something when I'm on my deathbed (likely a cot next to my posting station). From what I've read of it so far, each paragraph could be a prompt that could inspire a journal entry in the floppy disk book. The latest sentence that struck me was "Care for other human beings. Follow God." Timeless.




The Soul of a New Machine, by Tracy Kidder. It's really amazing to think about how much good poo poo was written so long ago. The seminal work of true software engineering, The Mythical Man Month by Fred Brooks, was written in 1975. But whereas the latter contains advice, it feels like the former will probably contain the stories that fuel that kind of advice.

This is all gold. Complete gold. Books like these are the only things that keep me sane. Books and anime.

Thank you, Santa! Please feel free to unmask yourself if you like.

nevergirls went wild and sent art, spices, a valuable life book, gold, and a mythic yostop. the only files Iíve found in my limited scan were my lepers colony history and a letter from nevergirls which I will post later once I trust connecting this mystery laptop to my network.
