    Thinking about dusting off an old idea for a Justwatch.com for comics. The idea is that you can sign up with a pull list or a backlog of comicbooks or manga, and it would tell you if it's digitally available for sale or as part of a subscription service and you could log your progress and what have you. The main issue would be trying to find all of those services APIs and coalescing them like how Just watch does. Where would I start with something like this?

    I've been building a programming environment that deals in top-level definitions (rather than files) laid out on an infinite 2D surface. Lately I've been noodling on the right visual metaphors for tests in this framework, and I finally found something I liked:

    i like creating little personal shell scripts for myself. there's a big back catalogue of the ones i don't use anymore and for the ones i do use, i'm slowly but surely rewriting them to be better. read through a command line book and learned some better scripting practices. a friend is also learning bash for her own scripts as she uses some command line tools on macos for her personal projects. i shared one of my scripts with her that i use to compress tv shows and she added functionality to it! i'm very proud <3 the script still sucks as most of it was written by me but it works well enough i think and is much better than what it has been before

      Fixing up personal scripts for fun on no particular schedule is definitely some of the most rewarding time I've spent at a computer. I started smiling just reading your comment!
