British Summer Time GMT+1

week 21 of 2024

it's 19 degrees celsius and partly cloudy and 1:00p.m..

i actually MADE lamb moussaka this week! it was delicious and LARGE the biggest aubergine in the world. it was so cute from the side with its 5 layers of 🍆 and zucchini and 🐑 and 🍅 and on top instead of bechamel it was an egg+yoghurt+mozzarella blend topped with parmesan.


yes, yesyes. what else? i wrote a shared list application you can make a project by going to /p/anything or a normal list with /l/anything. it is built with a library called yjs which implements a thing called CRDTs which are a very cool way of offline-first collaboration to always converge to the same document in a way that makes sense to a user. they quietly got really good 4 years ago when martin kleppman wrote a paper, a scholarly article, and now there is a lot of extremely exciting progress happening. they have the opportunity to change software completely, the next swing of the long pendulum in the grandfather clock of Big Computer<->Personal Computer. we can have software that runs locally on our computer, but syncs between our computer and our phone without having a Google or Amazon or anyone in between, just our own computers talking to each other. on top of that, you can invite your friend to work on your file too and you can work together, even offline, and when you both reconnect your changes will merge together. with no cloud in between! just talking to each other! also for kind of for free you get infinite undo, time travel, branching paths. and!! a man called Seph Gentle is working on an exciting thing right now that's going to make them even cooler. it's one of the most interesting things that's happening in the computer.

also another exciting thing inside the computer is which is a node.js-like runtime that can be used to build webview-powered native apps for mac, windows, linux, android and iOS.

zoozoo is going away for a week. did i mention we're going to spain? flying into madrid and out from barcelona. what fun.

i've lost hours over the past few days trying to pick a name for the app i'm trying to build, which is so much more fun than building it.

i hope your day is good, have an enjoyable bank holiday
