Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2013 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

I am irritable today because of a bunch of little things so it's a good time to remember good things.

Mel Chua.

The efforts of Hacker School to be friendly and nurturing across various axes of diversity.

It's a sunny day outside.

The Debian Project Leader is in town!

Dinners with Leonard, brown rice, dark green vegetables, and Columbo.

Jo Walton.

Encouraging new people and helping them see what they can do.

The music that helps me get to sleep: Robyn Miller's soundtrack to Riven, Zoe Keating, Ray Lynch.

Jasmine green tea.
