just realised did ~not~ import all fields for all entries from my biber database. specifically, it seems like it can’t handle @crossrefs. this is going to be "fun".

at this point Zotero is starting to feel like more trouble than just doing the references manually. I could make a bogus Latex document to print the formatted references list and Ctrl+C it…

ok nerds let's do this I'll liveblog my deadline rush to finish this article

@jrss the interface for working with individual org files is quite nice and intuitive.

However, it doesn't appear to support working with TODOs and scheduled items from multiple files at once, which does with its Search feature. My life is arranged in a dozen or more org files, so this is a key feature for me.

In northern Ethiopia, at 130 meters below sea level, in the hottest valley in the world, there exists a series of pools that look more alien than anything that should rightly be found on Earth.

This is the dangerously beautiful Dallol Volcano, and hydrothermal system, found in the Danakil depression. The highest point of the volcano reaches -48 meters above sea level. Brine pools and acidic liquid spout from the ground, building up salt and sulfuric pillars as temporary geysers build them. Here, not two but three tectonic plates move away from each other, causing the land to sink deeper and deeper, and bringing up minerals from deep within the Earth. In the next few million years, the Red Sea will eventually fill the depression.

The word Dallol, in the language of the Afar people, means disintegration. The Disintegration Volcano.

@jrss not yet, but I realized it doesn't have to replace Orgzly. With an open format, there's nothing to stop us from using both, should they have complementary strengths. Just haven't had a chance to check it out yet.

@federicomena I rarely have to do symbolic computation, but whenever I use Calc I end up thinking I ought to spend a bit more time getting used to it - I think it's quite powerful! At least for the level of things I do

@jaranta that's what I was wondering. It sounds like it might be a good idea in theory, but I'm not sure of the practical benefit. It's just my personal blog/unofficial work site, nothing that requires fancy federation/syndication.

Maybe I'll hold off on the stuff for now, and worry about getting my owncloud upgraded to nextcloud next. And maybe writing some more posts :BlobCatCoffee:

@dansup great! It looks like, unless there's a generous administrator out there giving away unlimited storage, I'm probably better off storing my large photo albums on Flickr or similar, and using pixelfed more for social sharing.

I don't suppose there are any commercial instances yet?

@dansup I see, thanks! Is this information posted for existing instances? Looking at pixelfed.social, I don't see anything about storage limits

@dansup is there/what is the storage limit for pixelfed? I'm wondering if it would work for storing/sharing collections of high res images

Holy shit. I just found they put all of Abenaki director Alanis Obomsawin's documentaries online free to stream. She's one of the best indigenous film makers


@jamey for storing/sharing high-res images, it's going to be hard to beat flickr/smugmug/500px on price. They each offer unlimited storage for about the cost of 20-40GB extra storage at . And presumably they are less likely to delete my files than I am to screw up my own server.

Still need to look more at ...

@ksteimel yes, that's part of the default. You can change the words per minute in the config, but I just left it at 200

@technomancy ok, that does help! It feels a bit precarious down close to my knees, but the angle of my wrists and forearms is more natural like this. Thanks!

My website plantarum.ca/ has been extra static for the past three years. After much bumbling around, it's now updated to the most recent theme.

Maybe in another week I'll have some new content to go on it.

@technomancy that makes sense, I'll try moving the Atreus further out towards my knees

Use when away from the desktop - Zen Monk Alain M. Lafon - Conf 2019

organice looks like it could replace Orgzly for me, I'll be checking that out

@technomancy looks great! I'd love to be able to tweak the angle between the two sides of my one-piece Atreus.

I'm getting more comfortable with the layers now, and using my fingers on the lower row, so it's approaching the in usability (and far better for travel). The biggest remaining issue for me is that the angle between the halves feels a bit cramped for my arms.
