I revived & updated an old JS tech demo and I'm starting to add tools (and very trivial games, if I feel nostalgic).


I wrote the first version of this in BASIC back around 1980-2, and I've been using my Python version with more tools, but this is prettier.

Many Coffee Machines on Ix. New Machines.

My new coffee buddy, Ninja CF087. I can't be trusted to make french press first thing in the morning. 4 size settings by 4 brew densities, and a timer, for $99 at Bed Space Above & Beyond. Also, comes with a milk frother and a 135-page book of recipes for coffee drinks and foods. That's a dangerous way to feed my habit.

First half-pot on "rich" is only β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½β˜†, drinkable and strong but not the tastiest, but that's as much because I'm at the tail end of a bag of beans. I think it'll be better with new beans.

It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion.
It is by the beans of Java that thoughts acquire speed,
The hands acquire shakes,
The shakes become a warning,
It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion.

What I'm Drinking

  • Space Goat Pale Ale by Big Sky Brewing. Bought for the awesome name/label, and I like Moose Drool, their flagship brew. Cap says "LESS PANTS MORE BANJO", which is at least half good advice. Initial flavor/aroma was almost skunky, extremely unpleasant. Settled after a few minutes and became a slightly too hoppy, too watery ale, only 5% ABV. I've had better lagers for half the price. Sadly would not recommend this. β˜…β˜…β˜†β˜†β˜†

  • Pacific Rain by Ninkasi Brewing. This is fabulous. "Northwest Pale", light but not watery, a little bit fruity. Only 5.4% ABV which is light for Ninkasi, not a challenging beer (no Arrogant Bastard-ness here) but one of the nicest beers ever. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…
