finally made something good out of rhubarb yesterday: a blueberry rhubarb tart. used fresh rhubarb from my garden, Maine low bush blueberries I picked last year, and a homemade crust. rhubarb is tricky because it leaks a lot of water when you cook it so it is easy for your tasty treat to end up a soupy mess and that is what has happened to me every other time.

I'm the world's most dangerous predator. Everything about me invites you in - my voice, my face, even my smell. As if I need any of that. As if you could outrun me. As if you could fight me off

well, I got my thinkpad mod kit and the HD screen. now if only I had the correct replacement motherboard...

hoo boy is MGS1 difficult. even on easy mode I managed to die on the very first screen and then again on the second so I turned it off. maybe some other day I will have the patience to learn how to play correctly...

now I'm watching MGS gameplay clips and remembering just how advanced that game was for the time. the cinematic feel, the slick UI, the clever use of system features like Psycho Mantis telling you which games you like by reading your memory card. I only played the PS2 MGS games, though. need to go back and play this one.

Mega64 re-enacts the plot of Metal Gear Solid in 10 minutes. cardboard metal gear REX is awesome.

it seems that the anime avatars have discovered guix. oh god they're probably using tools that I wrote.

applied a user contributed patch to guile-sdl2!

can't believe how many websites still break when using any sort of accented character. a coworker has a ñ in his name and the AWS re:invent site threw an error when he tried to book a hotel room because of it.

The back garden is looking good in the sunny May weather. It's just under a year old. #Florespondence #Gardening
