    ATW dropped a great single today that hopefully indicates a pivot to a heavier, more experimental sound.

    I'm pretty fond of nano--I'm no coding god, but its simplicity and ease of use suit me just fine.

    I understand why vegans don't spring for milk/cheese/eggs--the factory farm conditions that they're often produced in are frankly brutal and inhumane. If I can source them from a smaller, more considerate source, though, I don't feel near as bad about eating them.

    I'm also ready to hop right on the artificial meat train. I'm very interested to see what the folks working on that come up with.

    edit: just saw apoctr's comment and your response, good to hear you've got your own egg layers! That's on my longterm to-do list for sure.

    When I went almost-vegan, I was shocked at how little I missed meat. What I missed were eggs. Mercy, did I crave those. These days I try to shop vegan at the grocery store, get butter and eggs from a local farm, and only pay for meat when I eat out. Though I'm not lifting heavy at the moment, I haven't noticed any meaningful decline in athletic performance.
