Instacart Near and Far
We're talking to Rachael's family back in Ontario, and looking at supporting her mom and helping out so that R's sister Kathy doesn't have to do everything. We're doing a test grocery delivery using Instacart to see if that works for them.
The large stores all have their own delivery, but all of the systems are terrible.
Instacart is slightly better in that it is has one mediocre interface across all the different stores.
I decided to try out an order here in Vancouver, and got delivery from T&T Supermarket, a large Asian grocery store. So, cutting noodles for dinner!
I tried once more to import social posts from my blog into Micro.blog. Didn't error or anything, so I emailed support.
At some point, my previous support request about getting my archive and photos pages working ended up getting fixed. Now I'm flipping around between themes again, and seeing about customizing something.
I decided to go ahead and swap the domain over from
microblog to just
blog, and updated the colophon. Whatever happens with the old social posts being automatically imported, I can just sit down with Mars Edit and recreate them. Hmmm. Although, just looked it up, and 274 posts is a LOT to do manually.
I cloned the Marfa theme so I can see about figuring out the defaults.

15:28 depressing and empowering
i take solace in the fact that i can choose to kill myself at any moment. making the conscious decision not to do so means that i still have reason to live and motivation to work. i didn't choose to be born but i'm choosing to be alive.
17:06 debugging is learning
valuable because its just focused learning! if we empower others by forcing them to work thorugh their codebase without finding these bugs, we'll be able to help them in the saem way i remember having a great experience with the bisecting haskell tool to find bugs in code based on how functions were executed; great experience. wondering how we can generalize this experience and bring it to other progrmming languages; the generalization of these efforts, even if it means the tools are a bit less powerful, seems incredibly valuable – and possible thanks to tools like the lang server protocol
I would like Topic clustering in org-roam graphs.
I joined the Tech Won't Save Us Discord as part of being a Patreon patron of the podcast. Liking it so far, there have been a few brief but interesting discussions on various big-tech related topics.
Came across another interesting article (from [Internet Turtle on social.coop](https://social.coop/@tealturtle/105318939931661872 )), this one on Techno-anarchism.
Fixed an issue with display of different post kinds in my doublescores WordPress theme. Seems that

Listened to General Intellect Unit 038 - The Viable System Model. Brilliant. Great overview of VSM (for a total newbie such as myself). Some tidbits:
Very happy to have stumbled on the General Intellect Unit podcast. "Examining the intersection of Technology, (Left) Politics, and Philosophy". Found it just by a random search for 'Viable System Model podcast'.
