Dabin released a new album - Between Broken - two days ago and I just listened through it.

The standout track for me is named Komorebi, a name that perfectly suites it.

Komorebi is an untranslatable japanese word that captures the effects of the sunlight streaming throught the trees, the dance of the shadows on the ground - the beautiful interplay of light and dark caused by the sun, wind and trees.

"You have won the release of her soul," the God of Death said. "I will give her a hale body, clothes and provisions. Where should I say she can find you, should she wish to?"
"What? She must come with me."
"I did this for her!"
"That was your choice. Her choices are hers."

"I expected someone..."
"Yes," the knight said, looking down at the dragon.
"Dragons grow in proportion to their hoard."
"I heard your hoard was huge, thousands and thousands of books."
"It is."
"I went digital," the dragon said, showing the SD card they lay on.

Tom Scott published a new video about about a place that has too much renewable energy generation capability - the Orkney Islands.

The mentioned quarter-of-a-billion interconnector is planned to be a 220MW@220kV link.

However, approval depends on at least 135MW of new energy generation projects; so far the islands have 3 consented projects with ~45MW combined capacity and the 86.4MW Orkney’s Community Wind Farm Project is regarded as vital towards the approval.

what my girlfriend thought dating a software engineer would be like: "honey, I got an AI robot maid to do all our cooking for us"

what dating a software engineer is actually like: "if that microwave connects to the internet we're heating all our food with a blowtorch from now on"

Just brewed my first cup of coffee in an Aeropress; came out rather good.

Since it is almost 2200 hours, the choice fell to decaf 100% Arabica, ground in a Wilfa Svart Aroma. The grind setting was dialed in for my French press, so I ran with it. Poured in 90C water for a 2 minute steep, short swirl, followed by a 30 second rest and a 20 second press.

Very clean, medium body, slightly acidic, very low to nonexistent bitterness and a rounded finish. Next time I'll try grinding a bit finer.

Update: three hours after the shot, the injection location started to feel a bit sore; that passed after approx. 26 hours. Other than that, I have had no other side effects. The booster shot is scheduled for mid June, six weeks after the first shot.

Got my first shot of the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine a couple of minutes ago - so far so good... :)

I was sitting in the dark listening to music and relaxing, when this came on... simply perfect.
