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...

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...

Let's see what happened this week...

I figured now was a good time to cull my plants and separate them into different pots. I thought I was prepared but it was still hard for me. :(

More good news! The W hybrid pot has 3 sprouts coming out now. I'm really surprised that most of these seeds managed to survive this stuff. Plants are crazy.

HOLY MOTHERFUCKING SHIT my seeds germinated!
It was only two pots in the first group on the bridge that sprouted and it took about 20 days to do it! I actually stopped watering them for a few days too because I thought they were all dead.

Why Programs Fail: A Guide to Systematic Debugging
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.

The Dorito Effect: The Surprising New Truth About Food and Flavor
I got this for free in audio book form and the narrator had an annoying as fuck voice. However, the book was interesting. It's making me think about raising chickens and being a food yuppie too.
