Wisdom is a double-edged sword: the more you understand about ANYTHING, the greater your doubts about ALL THINGS; including yourself.

@Imani yea I hear you... I have family and the finances and logistics simply make it impossible.

if i was single I'd have migrated elsewhere for covid so I could walk in a yard and breathe free and safe.

I miss sunny days. We've been in Western WA since 2013.

With the covid and the rain and the damp, I am starting to get very antsy. Dreams of the Southwest, where my wife lived for a while before we married.

@raye nice Dacrymyces photo! I've been doing seattle-area photos of fungi this winter.

Here's hoping the electoral college vote today goes off relatively painlessly, despite whatever shouting.

Stock Market soars to all-time high as 1/3 of the US plummets toward starvation. Fired out of offices, evicted from apartments onto the covid-filled street with no safety net. Best Country Ever!

While #Seattle will have the fewest hours of daylight on the Solstice proper, from December 7th - 13th we get a run of days with the earliest sunsets. Those days, sunset will be at 4:17pm.

Adjust yourself accordingly.

#Lisp #CommonLisp

I reinvented threading macros in Common Lisp a little bit, this time from the point of view of "what if each binding step was a value of its own?"

And I wrote a sizeable tutorial for them, too.


@Thomas Seattle has approved overwhelmingly a funding measure to have good in-city transit.

@cypnk that's quite an advertisement.

Off the cuff, know of a good forth system for Linux boxes today?
