Day 66: I Hung Them All

by Cory on June 24, 2018

They're all in the air now. Fucking finally. I"m exhausted.

Also I read on the internet somewhere that you should prune flowers when indeterminate plants are between 12 and 18 inches tall. Since my garden treasure is even smaller than t...

    Day 65: The First Blossom

    by Cory on June 23, 2018


    It's my first tomato blossom! This is coming from Garden Treasure 0, which I transplanted less than a week ago. From above the bridge, it's still not much to look at because the plant is still small and scrunched up against the bottom...

    Day 61: Garden Gem 1 gets Really, Really Big

    by Cory on June 18, 2018

    Sweet jesus, I took a real good look at garden gem 1 today (it's in a bucket labeled garden gem 0 because I fucked up...) and man it's doing really well!

    And here it is up close:

    The plant looks really good! The leaves are bigger than ever a...

    Day 60: Exodus into the Sky

    by Cory on June 17, 2018

    For millenia, man has lived and died crawling in the dirt. Uncountable generations of uneducated, ignorant souls clawed and struggled at the ground for survival. All of this changed today. For today is the first time that man has looked upwards--t...

    Day 54: No Turning Back

    by Cory on June 11, 2018


    Ignore the wild pea in the background. I took GG-1 and ripped it out of it's pot and stuffed it into my 5 gallon planter. I have it restiing on the frame I made (the one that was visibly leaning from one of my older pos...

    Day 50: Doink Doink

    by Cory on June 6, 2018

    A fucking murder has happened today. Two actually.

    I found these in the river, their bodies broken and mangled. My stomach sank as the world shifted beneath my feet. Was my planter design not strong enough to stand on their own? How many more o...

    Day 33: I Accidentally Make Something Really Racist?

    by Cory on May 20, 2018

    I did a whole bunch of building yesterday. I made this thing

    and this thing!

    The first thing is a rack I'm going to use to temporarily hold the plants when I first transplant them upside down in the bucket. The internet suggests about 10 to ...

    Day 30: Growing Continues and Experiments

    by Cory on May 17, 2018

    I've been trying to lift the bucket I suspended last week to no avail. It looks like I underestimated how hard it would be to lift a 50 pound bucket from about 6 feet away.

    This pole I made works in that it's sturdy and the hook end catches the...

    ECS Concepts – Part 7: Messaging

    by Cory on May 13, 2018

    Messaging is cool, trust me. It’s gonna have some complicated template code though so hang tight.

    If this feels like a digression because I haven’t gotten around to talking about systems yet, bear with me. I want to explain all the ingredients th...

Snow Crash

Neal Stephenson

This was ok. It gives me a super Neuromancer feel crossed with Idiocracy which is cool. The characters Hiro and Raven are cool too. It gets kind of fan fic -y with Hiro's samurai swords and Y.T.

This is a textbook. It's FUCKING BORING. But it picks up somewhat after Ch. 5 and has some really good ideas in it. I begrudgingly have to keep this book on my shelf.
