Is there a “system” I haven’t tried? This is the Chronodex from 2013. It was neat, but not for me.

I put this giant notebook to use as a “Media Log”. I write the title and year of every movie I watch and book I read in here. No ratings or anything. It may not be terribly useful, but I think it’s neat.

My Cloudron instance emailed me and let me know my blog (Ghost) ran out of memory so it restarted it for me and I might want to allocate more. It also upgraded 2 other apps overnight automatically. I’m thinking the $30/month is turning out to be worth it.

I changed my filename prefix from an ISO date to a compressed YYYYMMDD format to save some space but now I'm finding them harder to parse/scan. (e.g. 20200110). I think I have to change it back to 2020-01-10. Joy.

My RoamResearch graph as of today. The more I put into Roam, the more useful it becomes.

I'm trying something. Every time I think about visiting a social network, I instead turn and grab a pencil.

My avatar is from this found negative from the early 1900s. Looking at it makes me happy. was down for much of the day yesterday and it's telling how hamstrung I felt. Also, their upcoming offline features can't come soon enough.

There are many ways to use
@RoamResearch, but to me it's the world's smartest Bullet Journal. Daily Notes ftw.

I want a smart home without the need for an internet connection. Something like wifi-only Brilliant.

Is there such a thing?

I'm not interested in what you're planning for the coming year. I'm interested in what you _actually did last year_ and if it worked or didn't work for you and why.
