i made a free game a while back called Nemesisters. it's funny interactive fiction about finding my place in my big, weird family. it ends with a Space Rock Paper Scissors showdown, just like Anna Karenina. 5000lobsters.itch.io/nemesiste

i recorded this short bloopy thing on a PO-20. i haven't messed with music creation since like high school and am pretty intimidated, so i think Teenage Engineering's line of simple, cheap synch/sequencers are really nice. it's kind of like the zine of audio equipment soundcloud.com/5000lobsters/no

as i wait for another linux update to finish updating man pages, i wonder what i always wonder:
is there a way to tell linux i am never ever using "man" and it can just go ahead and skip that step? i am going to look up which order the arguments for ln go online 100% of the time, i will never remember that man exists and can tell me.

On page 12 of "Goodnight Moon," there's a wall with a picture of a booted, bipedal rabbit fishing for another rabbit. I feel like this is pretty conceptually challenging material for a children's book.

The US govt stealing data off the phone of a minor who happened to be related to a prominent public figure, because that public figure hurt the President's feelings with mean words, is shameful. What a rotten system, top to bottom.

I wrote about stumbling upon a copy of Dreamcast multimedia email software DreamFlyer for $1, learning about the PinkRabbit family of software it’s based on and compatible with, and liberating the computer versions from time bomb code. Hope you enjoy! jessicastokes.net/blog/2021/06
