If you see one of these in your home, leave it alone. It's a house centipede. They're harmless to you, but an absolute menace to the bugs most people don't want. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scutiger

I can respect a patron who punches out on a funny number after three and a half years of quiet support.

I went with the Loawa 100mm 2:1. I also got a diffuser that goes around the lens to use my popup flash after learning ring lings aren't great for macro. I'm going to save up for a real live speedlight.

ok so I’m sitting here writing code and some tests fail and then I get a spam call on my phone that I ignore.

It leaves a message.

I am now distressed.

The doubts and assumptions buying my first lens vs my second are so different. I had no idea what I was doing.

The questions now are more technical, like "does the 20 DXOmark difference between the Sigma and Nikon matter?" (no) or "Can I live with a cheaper sub-100m macro?" (no)

Mostly the gut feelings I had trying to decide on the first proved true and most other considerations didn't matter.

I was finally able to load the modern web as quickly as the old web once I got a laptop with one of those newish Ryzen chips. I expect complexity to grow quickly past the performance gains, but it's a nice reprieve.

Cool Discord server, boosts appreciated 

The monthly membership thing will also get you into channels where I post Minecraft worlds, music, wallpapers.

You can mute any for what you aren't into and get notifications for what you are! Isn't that handy?

Good, actual, real lifehack: "Is this what I think or is this what someone else thought for me before I could think for myself?"

I decided to post this early.

There was a specialized pen in olden times that would draw 5 lines for music notation. It was called a rastrum, or raster.
