Plotted a portion of a map of Reykjavík today. Still need to get a better pen and find a smoother workflow for generating the svg for the map

Decided to give P5.js a try and porting some of the code I had made for PIL over to P5.js. Seems to work pretty nice but I still need to find a nicer way to fill in the squares. Also I can export stuff from P5.js to svg which makes plotting the designs way simpler.

"Dark Lego, show me the forbidden connection techniques":

a leaked PDF of a Lego internal corporate document describing "illegal" connections that must not be used in official kit-building instructions

I think it is pretty interesting that the current pandemic has shown how most people(at least from my point of view here in Iceland) have no clue what to do with their days when they don't have to/can't go to work or school.

Trying for creating a slideshow. Pretty nice so far and it is super nice to create slides in markdown. Still need to figure out if there are more options to style it beyond changing text and background color.

Anyone know any that have a column view similar to the finder in MacOS? I know Pantheon Files has it but curious if there are any others.

So the official icelandic Covid19 tracking app is open source. (and all tracking data is stored locally, and only locally). This blows my mind.
