Weekly review: Week ending February 19, 2021

| review, weekly
  • I got captions to flow from my phone to Node to Emacs to OBS to Twitch. There's some delay, but it's a good starting point that might come in handy for live captioning my own stuff.
  • I added autocategorization to Emacs News.
  • I tried out pretty-hydra.
  • I wrote some commands to remotely control Geeqie from Emacs. They're useful for quickly flipping through images.
  • I added photoswipe to A-‘s learning stories.
  • I spent some time tidying up my Org Mode inboxes. I'm actually reasonably up to date now, neat!
  • We tried making yogurt from scratch, and it turned out all right.
  • A- was a little curious about automata because of the Science Comics: Robots book, so I built the office worker automaton from JK Brickworks.
  • A- started writing in response to class prompts. This is probably because the teacher asked the senior kindergarten students to write first before drawing, and A- prides herself on being able to keep up with the SK students even though she's younger.
  • We watched the livestream for the Mars 2020 mission.
