These articles don’t belong in a definitive series.

  1. Hermaeus and Simple Tools (2016 October 12)

    I wrote a tool to ease archival work for a subreddit I frequent.

  2. Computers Are Hard (2017 January 25)

    A brief, evergreen note about why sometimes you can’t read my website. Posting it on that website was, perhaps, foolish.

  3. Immigration Ban (2017 January 28)

    I have some strong thoughts about immigration and social attitudes.

  4. ASCII-Centrism (2017 March 26)

    An article about a small, small subset of problems with using software tools that have ASCII- and/or English- only syntax elements.

  5. AHCA (2017 May 04)

    The House of Representatives passed a bill that would significantly alter healthcare law in America. I wrote about some of my family’s experience with medicine. The Senate rejected the bill a month later.

  6. Road Trip UT-MI (2017 May 16)

    The snapchat story of a four-day trip between Utah and Michigan

  7. Inverted Discourse (2017 June 08)

    I wrote about an event I observed on Twitter and how it pertains to popularity effects I’ve seen in real life and especially amplified on social media.

  8. Solar Eclipse Geometry (2017 August 06)

    Far too much information about why the moon’s shadow does what it does in an eclipse.

  9. DV (2017 September 21)

    A story about an abusive, violent relationship of mine. I cannot emphasize enough that if you feel incapable of reading about these things, do not open this.

  10. New Year’s Resolutions (2018 January 01)

    New Year’s Resolutions for 2018.

  11. On Safety, and How Rust Can Help (2018 January 28)

    The Rust community issued a call for blog posts about Rust’s potential in 2018 and this is my response. It’s not very much about Rust.

  12. Adventures with nom (2018 April 05)

    Some things I learned while using the nom library on a parser project.

  13. To All the Posts I’ve Blogged Before (2018 August 26)

    A self-involved reflection on why I have this section of my site. Blame Manish.

  14. Rolling My Own RSS Feed (2018 August 28)

    My previous post was about writing blogs. This one is about reading them.

  15. Rust Flow (2018 November 10)

    Rust allows for a very functional style of value “flow” without sacrificing the performance of a more traditionally imperative sequence. Furthermore, the functional flow may offer more clarity about value lifetimes and error handling that the imperative sequence might obscure.

  16. Rust Flow, Part Two (2018 November 29)

    Rust doesn’t have a language-level concept of generic mutability, which makes “method threading” (which take self by some handle, and return it in the same way) hard to write. This article covers how to write in that pattern in a less painful way.

  17. Battlestar Astrodynamica (2018 December 01)

    I accidentally got way too invested in the astrodynamics of a complex stellar system and the mechanics of teleporting.
