Last year, we spent 51 days at sea during the passage from Japan to Canada, it was the hardest thing we had ever done. We kept a physical logbook of daily happenings onboard. This is that logbook, revised, and with a ton of extra notes.

tech has been seriouspoisoned

no one asks some random person making a sword in their garage who they're planning to impale
no one asks someone playing with wood, making cool cutting board designs what utility the design plays, or why they need the 50th cutting board this year

and yet, many tech projects (including actually useful ones!) will have brigades of people jumping in and asking "why does this exist?" or "who is this for?"

get the fuck outta here lmao
if it's not for you, you don't have to be a dick about it

Which meant that any number from 1 to 9999 could be written using a single symbol.

I've given in.

I'm building a tiny virtual machine with a rpn assembly language to ultimately use to compile my tools for, compiled as roms for its graphical emulator.
