Pinned toot

I'm part owner and roaster at a little coffee company in Wisconsin. Author of Typica, a popular free program used to capture and work with coffee roasting production records that's used at roasting companies all over the world. Volunteer on the Roasters Guild education committee. Available for paid coffee consulting, training, open source software development. Living with a cat who broke into my house and decided to stay. Likes: cute, travel, food. Dislikes: blinking lights.

supertuxkart 1.0 runs very nicely on my laptop (though it takes a while to get through the screen size settings to something that doesn't look tiny). Unfortunately the buttons it says I should press for things don't always match up with my controller. For example, the tutorial says Y for nitro boost but it's really LB.

I spend a lot of time in corners of coffee shops and pubs and taverns and such, sitting by myself with my hood pulled up. I really feel like I should have an adventure hook ready just in case I ever meet a party of PCs starting a new session.

Some chocolate eggs didn't sell. I'm eating them instead of selling at a discount.

The cat is especially talkative today. Lots of excitement outside that she needs to tell me about.

Reason to not trust github: they call their mascot octocat even though it only has 5 tentacles.

My post-op instructions say I can eat solid food again, but I own soup so I guess I'm eating soup. Hopefully the driveway is no longer blocked when I get home as I've been invited out for food tomorrow and it would be nice to not need to get someone to pick me up for that.

That's it for the gift coffee so now I'll be going back to drinking stuff roasted at my own shop.

My last gift coffee is three roasts of the same coffee. I've worked with the person who roasted these on education stuff, so that was a nice surprise. It's a lovely Peruvian microlot and the gimmick is that the three roasts were taken to the same ending temperature but with proportional stretching.

Needed to get a ride into/home from work today. Utility work has my car blocked trapped in the driveway. It would have been nice to have a little door hanger letting me know the day before so I could have parked somewhere else, but that didn't happen.

After all this time I still find my PICO-8 implementation of Flying Toasters really soothing: noelle.codes/toasters.html

I do have a fuel control pot on one of my machines (I'd like to swap that out, too) but at least it's a dual-pot and the 2nd circuit is running through the same data acquisition hardware. It's not like there's some weird 2nd system for just one control variable.
