September 11th, 2021


I'm not old enough to really remember 9/11 clearly. I would've been about five years old at the time. But it's still with a heavy heart that I look back.



I've started talking again with an old friend of mine who I hadn't heard from in a really long time. They're really fun to talk to and I've been having a blast chatting with them!

A quiet day. More Minecraft

September 10th, 2021

Not much happened today, really. I played some more Minecraft and continued to work on the spreadsheet for The Repository. I've started updating the chest signs to include any changes to the text ID/item name since "The Flattening", which is when Minecraft moved fully away from numeric IDs.

I'm glad for the weekend.

Picked up a bit more on the flipnote archive project

September 9th, 2021

Today went pretty slowly, but I did pick back up on some work for the flipnote archive project. In particular, I was doing some analysis on FSID->3DFSID conversion by Nintendo and how some had a prefix of 00, 10, 12, or 14 (and maybe another one.)

Interestingly, out of all the Flipnotes in Flipnote Gallery: World, only one of them had a parent_fsid starting with 12, and it was a spin-off of a Flipnote that was itself a spin-off of a Flipnote by a person who I knew, who I reached out to to ask about it. Funny how things turn out like that!


Some experimentation with Minecraft mods

September 8th, 2021

I decided to try experimenting a bit with Minecraft mods and was pleasantly surprised at the utility they added to the game. I can now quickly sort my inventory and chests with Mouse Wheelie, find where I put my equipment or stored a certain kind of material with Chest Tracker, see what's in my shulker boxes without placing them with ShulkerBoxTooltip, find out who owns a horse or cat or dog with Pet Owner, and have various other small fixes to make my experience a little smoother.

The trip home from the U.P.

September 6th, 2021

I packed up this morning and headed back on my way home. It was a little rainy. I made the trip in about 4-5 hours. I rather regret not stopping anywhere on my way back -- I missed several opportunities to get pasties/fudge/whatnot , but what's done is done.

I wasn't feeling great when I got home -- rather alone and down. And tired. I tried to take a nap, but failed -- I've never been able to fall asleep when trying to fall asleep -- but eventually my day was over.
