Put lots of revision related ink on paper today during the waiting portions of other tasks. Will need to transcribe or otherwise act on those notes after dinner. This will not be the last round of editing before I'm happy with sending this off for technical review.

Thought of the day: vertical shooter played on a Tetris board. Falling blocks follow your character left and right, shoot to rotate, pieces become deadly when they reach the bottom so the play area effectively shrinks until you clear out lines.

Fresh batch of chai concentrate is in the ice bath. Needed to make more to cover a wholesale order. One of these days I should really build some kind of giant chai concentrate making machine. I suspect I could mostly just repurpose beer brewing equipment.

One of my employees just answered a robocall where the entirety of the pre-recorded message was, "Congratulations." I think I've gotten that one before, but I always hang up before finding out that there isn't more.

Yesterday I did my production test batch of a French Roast made out of a new lot of coffee from Brazil. That turned out nicely so the next thing is verifying that all the blends that had the old French Roast as an ingredient still work with the new one or adjust the blend recipes so those continue to be delicious. No change needed to the espresso blend (40% French Roast, 30% Sulawesi, 20% Burundi, 10% Colombia).

I now have sample roast profiles on the IKAWA that both take the same time and time in ranges, both have the same end color (58.5 external) on my control coffee, but one is automated on exhaust temp and the other is automated on inlet temp.

Today I'm operating both my largest and my smallest coffee roasters at the same time. The little one has automated controls so it's not like I'm really doing much there.

I like every touhou character but these three are very precious to me #touhou

Did the design for my full page/full width floats today.

The IR-1 has some characteristics that you might not see on other coffee roasters. For example, I'm hitting the maximum rate of change pretty far out from where that starts to plateau because the machine is overpowered on the front end (though prone to stalling on the back end so you have to know your machine to hit that particular example plan even running it at tenth capacity).

Working on book graphs. This is what I'm aiming for if I'm doing my normal sample roast on the IR-1.

The cat had a stressful day today so we played one of her favorite video games tonight to help her calm down.
