Caffeinated, occasionally crafty geek in Seattle. I like FOSS, drawing, and yarn.

A blog, of sorts. I keep quick notes and longer posts here. Mostly about computers and code, but sometimes drawings and assorted crafts. And other stuff. It's a plain old fashioned personal site.

I just wanted to see if I can do it without vim-orgmode. I can. Sort of. Using Vimwiki with TaskWiki for Taskwarrior integration. Not appearing in this image: vim-table-mode. Appearing but not relevant to the Org-ish experiment is vim-which-key. Completely missing: any sort of Babel code evaluation/tangling.

That agenda-ish task list is real cool but needs to show more info, like tags.
