I Am Getting Better at Drawing

It suddenly got really cold here and I haven’t been able to get out. So instead I’ve been drawing and experimenting with new styles. Looking back at my early drawings I am much better. You can watch my progress on deviantArt and fur affinity. Lately I’ve posted to fa, but usually I post to dA so check both out! Also be sure to follow my twitter as I usually post some sketches there. ... Read more

Music App

I really enjoy listening to music. There are several ways to get music. YT Music Honestly, I don’t know much about this service. I did do the free trial and it seemed ok. Prime Music I used this for a while as I have Prime and did like it, but a lot of music moved to their unlimited plan and I didn’t like that so I started to consider paying for a service. ...

Cycling Is Fun

Cycling is fun. Even though I am so out of practice and I can’t use a bicycle that doesn’t stop me. I bought myself a tricycle and recently have started using it again. I used to, but stopped due to crippling depression and anxiety.

What to Write

I don’t even know what to write today. I’m not very interesting, but why should I just not write today. Instead, I will write these posts about not knowing what to write and randomness. I’m not very versed at speaking from my self rather I prefer a prompt or question; which, of course, on a blog I don’t have. I will try my best though. So let’s just review the past few months. ...

NaPoWriMo Entry

I wrote a story for NaPoWriMo. For those that don’t know what it is it’s basically a self-imposed challange to write a My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic fanfiction. I didn’t get to the 50k, but I did get to the 25k mark. Here it is. Eventually I will go over it and polish it up for editing. Right now it has a few major flaws.

Hugo Migration

I don’t know if this is better but it works just took a bit to migrate it. I had lost all the posts and I was new to hugo. There is supposed to be disqus support but I couldn’t get it working. I’ve changed my mind on the disqus thing. More like accepted it. A lot of blogs use it and implementing anything else on this theme right now would be too hard. ... Read more

Dependency is Not Addiction

I’ll admit it; I am dependant on three drugs, but I am not an addict. The first of these is clear-cut, fluoxetine. I take it, good, I don’t, bad. Very bad. The second is Abilify. Same deal. The third is slightly more complex, Lyrica. When I take it I feel as I did years ago, but if I don’t then I get terrible nausea. A lot of people assume this is the same as addiction. ... Read more

What to Pass: a Var or IFn?

Mapping a function over a channel You have a function you are developing: (defn name-string "Gives you the name string from a suitable map" [{:keys [first-name]}] first-name) and you want to run this on maps you get over, say, a socket. Thus you shove it up a channel with an attached transducer of (map name-string) (or with a pipeline of the actual data channel, for the indirection). A Problem Arises Now, you want to incorporate the last name as an initial. ... Read more

On Licensing

What about it? Copyright is broken. The whole concept of controlling copying of a resource is just not viable, and furthermore erronous. To me it is reminiscent of censorship, and we all know how well that works. Lately I have been releasing any works to the public domain. Before discussing why, let’s examine this “copyright” thing. What got me thinking about this I don’t recall what exactly was being looked for when I saw a project on github with an UNLICENSE file. ... Read more

Look Ma! I Made Post!

So, I have a blog. For a long time I pondered it, but never acted. Today a switch in my head finally flipped, and I became allowed to start writing; and more than that, setting up the infrastructure. Fortunately—for me—my blog engine—cryogen—was very easy to set-up and soon I was producing. Cryogen is distributed as a template for leiningen, and this made it easy to get started. For more details see the homepage for cryogen. ... Read more
