- Go to sleep at 2am
- Wake up a bit after 5am
- Work a bit
- Drive a friend to the airport (have fun at WisCon, Sumana!)
- Work a bit more
- Hack on open steno software for a bit (or rather, fail to install Tkinter in Python 3 - I'll do this when I upgrade to F13 this weekend - but learn how to chord "hello, world" on a steno keyboard and get an orientation to the code enough to start tinkering with new features - thanks, Mirabai!)
- Meetings and conversations
- Drive back to Boston, periodically interrupted by...
- POSSE California meeting
- Free hot dogs
- Traffic (ok, this part not so fun - New York and Boston are not over 7 hours apart)
- Arrive at Blues Union, dance until you're basically a pile of sweaty clothes collapsed onto a chair
- Drive home with radio on and windows down so as to stay awake and not run car into tree
- Emails and various small work-things
- 2am POSSE China meeting
I've got a red, white, and blue thread bracelet around my right wrist that will stay on for the next few days - it's the marker for bix, which goes through late Monday night. This weekend, I am a dancer.
And a hacker. Three things I want to tinker with over the long weekend:
- Upgrade my infrastructure (work laptop, deployment netbook collection, trove-of-ancient-hardware) to F13 and whatnot, reallocate hardware as needed and install new programs that have been on my list for a while.
- Offlineimap + postfix adventures with Karsten
- Plover feature coding for Mirabai
Also, food and sleep and stretching and rest and thinking and yay. And clearing email backlog. So much backlog...
Not a bad life, really. Certainly a full one.
