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 and is quite addicting.

Healin' Good Pretty Cure is on Crunchyroll now!

Started doing indoor cycling yesterday and gee did it felt disproportionally tiring and unconfortable after I noticed that running for the similar amount of time would have burned 3 to 4 times the amout of calories. I already spent a few days in seat bone pain hell when I first got the bike and this morning's ride left my palms/arms really numb. Thankfully no leg cramps as I worried originally. I guess efficiency and form does matter in sports. Hopefully all these would payoff in the long run.

Maybe it's not too bad an idea to train a neural net for scoring a Mahjong hand as a fast estimate in place of an exhaustive pattern matching?

The new shade of green Github slapped on the contribution counter is eerily bright. Maybe the colors were chosen with a potential dark mode palette in mind?

I wonder if phonebooks are still a thing at least in some places? If a Back To The Future event were to actually happen, I have little confidence that I would be able to even find the Doc in 2020.

My 3D printer finally arrived. I've sensed a +2 bonus on productivity already! I tried to take it down a notch in the run today, consciously limiting my pace such that my heart rate remained relatively calm, and find myself able to cover a much longer distance while wearing a respirator mask. It's the first longer-than-1-hour-run since March.

I woke up this morning only to find my bike's rear tube was punctured by a thin steel wire, possibly on my way home yesterday. I searched around for emergency reapir tips, and learned that I could get away with tying a knot around the leaky region in a pinch: I clearly underestimated how stretchy bicycle tubes are and this actually worked. The knot did produce an noticable bulge on the rear tire, but this was enough to get me through my commute. I got the tube repaired at a shop on my way home.
