Walking in the icy wind, my internal voice started dogespeaking in Picard voice, with hilarious results.
The larger the gap between one major feedback loop and the next largest of any given stage of an activity, the more assumptions must be made about that stage.
Example: planing a hurdy gurdy top to thickness.
Tasks, feedback loops in order of duration (timings are approximate from memory):
The gaps between feedback loops become larger as the durations become larger, as do the assumptions which are made about the task at each level until the next feedback loop arrives. I suspect that experience level also affects both the value gained from each feedback loop, increasing the actor’s knowledge of the system and increasing the amount of time which can safely be left (i.e. the amount of assumption which is safe) before more feedback is required.
Two observations: the existence of vastly longer feedback loops of experience accumulating which affect the shape of existing loops, and that the smallest feedback loops are broadcast by the environment (audible feedback, physical resistance) but longer ones require active participation (testing the system).
Having a go at Thai cooking tonight — making some grilled chicken with satay sauce + cucumber (new favourite flavour combination), as per this recipe.
Brian Brennan ah, okay. I was thinking of using SSE-style responses to a POST request as a way of offering real-time feedback about new content creation without having to set up redis and a websockets server.
Brian Brennan it’s not something to do with a SSE response to a POST request is it?
Achievement Unlocked: actually saw an umbrella inverted by wind. Didn’t know that happened in real life.
Are any of my USA friends #mentalist fans? I’m not going to be able to see S6E8 until tomorrow evening, wanting to figure out if I need to avoid twitter in case of spoilers until then :)
Tried making some Spanish-style hot chocolate. A little lumpy, and probably not nearly thick enough for @_aitor’s standards, but delicious nontheless!
Post-game-night research: did medieval Croatians have shoelaces? Going by the few bits of 13th century art I can find photos of, no — but that could be down to lazy artists.

Supports readline, pcntl, registering custom commands, automatic semicolon insertion, clean+concise string representations of evaluated values. Amazing work Justin Hileman!
Found this lovely chart of 17th century Viol ornaments (notation+equivalent notation) in The Division Viol:
DuckDuckGo’s r.duckduckgo.com redirects are intermittently giving Connection Reset errors — just one of the reasons why it’s better that they don’t exist. Let each link link to the thing it says it links to.
For someone who doesn’t own a TV, I am unduly excited about next weekend. SO MUCH HYPE.
Heading over to Sumendi, hoping that I do actually have a reservation. Everything looks delicious!
