Library of Trantor

The plan needs to go on.

Welcome, wanderer of the Internet. You have stumbled upon the scribbles of one commonly referred to by fellows as shimmy1996, or rather, my blog. "Shimmy Xu" is just my mundane name.

Can't wait when Nintendo decides to rename the Master Sword.

Jokes aside, the superficialness of these changes again makes me feel uneasy, that no more serious effort would/could be carried out after these low hanging fruits are gone. On the other hand, what may be seen as low hanging fruits for large coporations can still put a toll on smaller projects. Gee naming things is hard.

First run in a very long time! The weather is great, but the respirator mask is really taking a toll on me after the first mile. I got some other types of filters that are less clunky and maybe that will alleviate this. Also got a bike yesterday -- hopefully I will get a chance to put it to good use.

Egh, the new Github repo page they are testing has a very M$ feel to it.

I wonder how long it would take for GitHub to become Office 365 Code or MS Visual Hub.

Second recovery run - I've largely adapted to wearing respirator masks while running - the only annoying thing is as I sweat, the mask tend to slip and put a lot of weight on my nose, essentially blocking it. It's almost comical seeing how the please wear a mask signs are even less effective than the no alcohol beyond this point ones.

Spend good part of today organizing all my expenses this year in Beancount - a text based accounting system that I first read about in BYVOID's blog. With Emacs integration, multiple interfaces, and an error checker, Beancounting has been a breeze to use, and is quite addicting.

Healin' Good PreCure is on Crunchyroll now!
