During the week, I'll often take photos of what I'm doing, or make notes in my notebook, to make writing these weeknotes easier.
However, looking back, I can see I've done neither this week. All the photos are of my pen plotter either working or the final art. Meanwhile, all my notes are about how ElasticSearch is still a total pain in the ass.
So I guess I've spent pretty much the whole week either doing pen plotting or swearing at ElasticSearch, and its "from an engineering point of view, this is working correctly" stance, where technically-correct trumps useable.
I did take a photo from a coffee shop, which would be the first coffee shop I've been in for about a year.
For one hot second, I thought about doing a virtual gallery of my art in Second Life, so I hopped back in to look around. I clean forget that every single piece of furniture in Second Life pretty much wants you to fuck.
It is unnerving.
The search for an online virtual gallery continues.
I played Loop Hero for a bit this week; it's good fun and my kind of game, in that I don't have to do anything. If anything, I still have to do too much.
There are generally two types of games.
Ones where you get new abilities and grow in power, but so do your enemies at roughly the same rate, so any combat always takes approximately the same length of time, just with bigger explosions, and you don't get to go back to previous "levels/areas/worlds/zones."
And games where you do get to go back and absolutly stomp on enemies that previously caused you trouble.
I'm all in on the second type of game.
I'm not sure if Loop Hero will let me play that way or not, but we'll see.
I discovered that you could buy books of cross stitch 12/14/16/18 count graphed charts from Amazon. These are print on demand books and are basically pages of graph paper, but each one has a slightly unique take of what is or isn't useful. Some have legends you can fill in; some have project pages you can use to list and reference your projects, and so on.
But as far as I can tell all of them use the same page repeated over and over, not taking into account left and right sides of the page, and that the middle edge of the page gets lost towards the inner margin.
And it's taking me all my power of resistance not to make a perfect cross stitch chartbook and put it up on Amazon's print on demand service, fixing all the issues based on knowing how a book actually works. Because I really don't have time.
A few weeks back I switched the font on this site to Atkinson Hyperlegible from the Braille Institute.
