a while ago we got the cat this mesh tunnel thing so he could come hang out on the yard with us and not immediately put himself in mortal danger / do a series of tiny murders (he's ancient and has been inside his entire life, colorado wildlife would pick him off in seconds even if we weren't worried about the birds & such).

it's been great, except now he sits by the door and demands to be let out into his tunnel so he can sit in the tunnel and demand to be let back in the house.

animal ec, but as sticker 

gf got a cricut and immediately stickerified a picture of sable.

neat vim plugin for outlining 

i was writing a long markdown document and i really wanted like a clickable outline of headers and remembered this thing:

vim.org/scripts/script.php?scr

sure enough, `:Voom markdown` and there's a panel with the exact interface i was looking for. super handy.

notebook nerd question 

has anybody ever tried taking notches out of the edges of pages with a single-hole punch as a way to index by topic?

i've been trying the thing where you scribble on the edge with different colored inks (i think i got this from somebody with a bullet journal, see attached crappy photo), and it's a really neat idea but it's proving a little fiddly...

i started using mastodon in like 2017 or something and i still don't remember what these icons mean most of the time.

i found it, the one good genre of youtube comment: old guys learning that received wisdom doesn't really hold up to close scrutiny and being super chill about it.

stoked to find out what features they've revoked this go 'round

he wanted the window open, then refused to go out onto the catio because it's cold, and is now mad i won't open the window again.

robot eye contact 

update: 🤖 ravebot won the costume contest. i didn't actually plan on _entering_ the costume contest, but they were taking pictures at the gate as we came in so it just kind of happened.

will be basking in this one for a while, since it will definitely never happen again even if we try. having won a division of the winter holiday parade a few years back with the plywood dinosaurs, i now feel like we have to seek out a 3rd local holiday thing to conquer...
