  • Day 2: Building a 2nd Brain

    I’ve I looked a little more into Wallabag, and it’s still something I want to look into, but it would require me going deeper down the Docker rabbit hole to spin it up on the same droplet I’ve got for Joplin than I care to right now. So I just signed up for Instapaper –…

  • Day 1: Building a 2nd Brain

    So after getting the basic infrastructure for taking notes using open source alternatives in place: Running on a Digital Ocean droplet, I’m using NextCloud and Joplin for note taking/synchronization across my devices. Like I said yesterday, I can see the potential for helping me catalog, extract, organize, and distill the information I’m ingesting on a…

  • Building a 2nd Brain

    I talked about building a 2nd Brain – an external warehouse for knowledge/media that I’m consuming. Yeah I think this is going to be my upcoming challenge. I’ve got to get some infrastructure in place before I make use of the idea – at least practically. But first what the hell is a “2nd brain?”…

  • Journal Entry – 6/15/24

    I woke up feeling the three days in a row of hard exercise. I’ve still be fairly active with some yard work and some work on my camper. I mowed my front lawn – not a big lawn as my house is on an 1/8 of acre – but it still took about 45 minutes…

  • Beginner Hacks to Change Your Life

    I haven’t decided on a new 30 day challenge yet, but I’d like to keep my writing everyday going. So I thought I’d do a write-up on the changes I’ve experimented with that have had the biggest impact on my life so far. These are roughly in the order of difficulty from easiest to most…

  • Day 19: No Alcohol

    Been a busy day today with work and travel. I did get to go train with one of my teachers today, I’ve started learning American Kenpo Form 6 – an interesting form dealing with weapon defenses. I’m a bit torn as I’m not a fan of the way most martial arts teach dealing knives in…

  • Day 17: No Alcohol

    I’ve started going down a bit of a rabbit hole with understanding more about fat loss and dieting in general. I came across the Renaissance Periodization channel on YouTube (I’ll refer to Mike as RP from now on) and he’s got a lot of good information. I quantify “good” as he seems to know what…

  • Day 15: No Alcohol

    I didn’t have any candy or sugary drinks yesterday – diet/zero calorie stuff is growing on me. They’re not as sweet and I don’t get a blood sugar spike. So heck yeah – I’m sure my dentist/hygienist will be happy/disappointed with the improvement in my oral health. I think need to make more of an…

  • Day 10: No Alcohol

    My wife pointed out something I did last night – an interaction with my son. It made me realize I’ve been a bit more impatient/aggressive lately. It might be missing alcohol, but I’m pretty sure physiologically at least, I’m over it. I’m actually more inclined to think my baseline testosterone levels are coming up due…
