Yesterday I played the riff for Pink Floyd's Interstellar Overdrive and then proceeded to making weird noises with my guitar and pedals for about 20 minutes. Nothing like a weird simple riff to get music rules out of your head.

I tried to build a summoning circle with my parts from Tayda to summon a few guitar pedals, but I am still missing parts :( At least my Daisy board is almost here so I can work more on my digital pedals.

Installing wine on WSL to crosscompile Windows software using mingw-w64. Totally normal. Not weird at all.

if your cat often bothers you at your computer and walks all over your keyboard, it's because they're trying to join you and do what you're doing. It's a sign of affection! One way to mitigate disruption without pushing away your cat is by buying your cat their own laptop and plugging it in next to yours. make sure the laptop has wifi, a VPN, and access to the darkweb

I love that my manager is totally onboard with my usage of memes to illustrate how I feel about bugs.
