Wed 22 Jul 2020 09:32:10 AM CDT yet another itch to be known scratching it here knowing full well the futility when #authors > #readers
Fri 19 Jun 2020 10:11:25 AM CDT words imply originators and receivers that is precisely the illusory phantoms the idea of which is our only bondage
Wed 10 Jun 2020 08:29:53 AM CDT Love this: ------------------------------------------- | abide in awareness | | with no illusion of person | | you will be instantly free and at peace | -------------------------------------------
Thu 04 Jun 2020 05:11:29 PM CDT I'm wearing a wedding band for the first time in, oh, some nineteen to twenty years.
Wed 03 Jun 2020 09:39:02 AM CDT Racists identify themselves in communication by placing a word indicating skin color before words like 'person', 'girl', 'guy', etc., thus indicating they believe skin color at least in part - if not utterly - determines personhood and, thus, behavior.
Wed 03 Jun 2020 07:38:30 AM CDT Playing around with vim's ":setlocal textwidth=NUM" feature so text lines wind up the length I want without having to format them. Not that I mind formatting them, mind you, e.g. ":NUM,NUM!fmt -NUM". But, you know, the degrees of mental anguish over doing extra work, right?
Wed 03 Jun 2020 06:49:16 AM CDT What a life, this seem of a cream of dream: seeming selves in bondage to the notion of themselves bound to a body in vast time of space!
Tue 02 Jun 2020 10:57:26 AM CDT "The Buddha Mind, unborn and marvellously illuminating, is like a bright mirror. A mirror reflects whatever is in front of it. It's not deliberately trying to reflect things. Likewise, when the object being reflected is removed, the mirror isn't trying not to reflect it, but when it's taken away it doesn't appear in the mirror. The Unborn Buddha Mind is just like this." - Bankei In quasi-related news, how did it come to pass that the words in a file look so much less important that the same words on a webpage?
Mon 01 Jun 2020 11:11:00 PM CDT I get the feeling it's not obvious to you, yet. Not to worry, though, 'cuz I'm feeling great about the job I just applied for.
Sun 31 May 2020 07:08:28 AM CDT A shadow can do nothing. Likewise the thought of ourselves.
Fri 22 May 2020 08:22:50 PM CDT Sitting out in the cool bordering on cold, awaiting a pizza delivery.
Thu 21 May 2020 07:13:09 AM CDT This morning I learned at least some of my coworkers are too sensitive for me to joke with.
Wed 20 May 2020 10:29:49 PM CDT Oh, just messing with a itty bitty script to facilitate this.
Fri 15 May 2020 03:04:25 PM CDT Hey there!
Wed 13 May 2020 10:23:02 AM CDT Just another entry no one will ever see.
Sat 09 May 2020 09:35:23 AM CDT Looks like I finally got logged out. It was just a matter of time. Which sometimes is and sometimes isn't on my side. I was kind of hoping my tmux session would still be running, at least, but it wasn't. <shrugs>
Sat 02 May 2020 08:45:31 AM CDT Dang impressed I can stay logged in here so long. Just add an entry to the top of this index.html, and, voila! Of course, it would help to have something worth reading to say, right? But it's a beautiful day, so no point missing it by getting lost in word worlds instead....
Sun 26 Apr 2020 01:12:10 PM CDT I must say that I really enjoyed ~droob's tilde (discovered via one of those "gimme a random tilde" links).
Thu 23 Apr 2020 06:51:44 AM CDT Pre-work moments. Wrote a post at my write.as place (link below). Awaiting my wife's awakening. Pondering how this web stuff has mostly lost its magic. Or has today, at any rate. It's enough to make me want to refactor some personal utilities, I'm telling you. It's about time to change my Microsoft Teams work presence indicator to "available", and get with their programme....
Wed 22 Apr 2020 04:51:29 PM CDT So hey, tilde.club others. Just your good, new buddy inquiry, here... walking some treadmill, basking in some joy and relieve of having finally solved a software issue that had been nagging me for days. Don't have a heck of a lot to type, though. Just checking in.

Tue 21 Apr 2020 12:46:48 PM CDT Okay, then... nice little quicky lua script to add new entries to this... re-remembered how to work with tmux on a remote system within tmux on a local system. Just gotta get used to hitting the prefix key twice. It's been a while. This is all especially pleasant while downing half a Blizzard my wife just fetched us!
Tue 21 Apr 2020 08:36:55 AM CDT I was thinking of maybe just pasting my write.as posts here. But, of course, there's the complication of having to redo anchor elements. So, nah... if you need to read that stuff, the link is at the bottom of all this.
Tue 21 Apr 2020 08:29:58 AM CDT Okay, then.. finally re-remembered how to get timezone the way I want.. bash the default shell.. $PATH to include my useful stuff.. vim to work the way I like, etc., etc. So I'm off to see the tilde.club wizard, in a manner of speaking.
Sun 19 Apr 2020 05:39:05 AM America Brass tacks So here's my dilemma. I can enjoy being kind of nuts and bolts (i.e. knowing exactly what I'm doing with respect to the tags 'n shit that makes it happen), appending updates to my https://tilde.club/~inquiry/ page, or less nuts and bolts to my https://write.as/inquiry/ page. Either way, well, who's gonna read it? Ten or (best number on an amplifier) eleven people? So given it's prolly the same either way, tilde.club is (somehow) free, and write.as is, well, not expensive, yet also not free. So these things come to mind. I've no verifiable quantitative reason to believe anyone except tmo reads me at all, here. Hmmm. And, in fact, I completely forgot I've been paying the classically great sdr.org even longer for web privileges I scarcely use. So it's just this weird thing, a thing so weird I couldn't possibly explain it to my wife to her satisfaction. Where the so-called rubber meets the road: either it feels like what one is typing is being read, or one may as well type into either a local file system file, or into a file system connected to a port 80 or 443 minus subscription.
Sun 19 Apr 2020 05:24:32 AM America I suspect I *might* like most who hang out in this place, simply because they *do* hang out in such a place. And, God, the *glory* of actually editing the index.html file itself instead of some bullshit web interface-y thing! And yet do I suspect I'm not at all cool kid enough to truly belong in so unix-loft-ily a place as this.
Sun 19 Apr 2020 05:19:18 AM America So not the question is, why bother with "write.as" when I can get my typing rocks off perfectly satisfactorily right here? And I'm not sure I can answer that in this moment (for mostly just typing stuff to see how it turns out in the browser..).
Sun 19 Apr 2020 05:15:47 AM America Shit, there was a time when I knew why the output of the 'date' command wasn't producing something in accord with what the time/date really is in my actual local, but I'm honestly past the point of caring.
