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 t...

    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...

    Day 25: Rise of the Phoenix

    by Cory on May 12, 2018

    Today was a huge day! I did a tooooon of stuff and made a lot of progress. A lot of other things happened between this post and the last, but I didn't think they were worth writing a whole post for.

    Let's see what happened this week...

    1. I gath...

    Day 19: A Time To Kill

    by Cory on May 5, 2018

    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. :(

    First of all, when I got to the bridge today, I saw that they were sprouting their first true leaves!...

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.
