Output of a ComfyUI Stable Diffusion experiment

Shared notes. Not too much. Mostly links.

I want to call them “weekly notes.” I lack confidence in my time awareness, so let’s go with “snapshot.” But hey. I fill up my notes every day. Why not share some of the interesting items here from time to time?


All Things Considered - The Mark Kistler Interview - YouTube
Been a fan of Mark Kistler since before I was a fan of computers. I’ve shared one Kistler-inspired work — Kistler Tree — and have multiple sketchbooks full of similar. Of course I listened to this interview.
Be the browser’s mentor, not its micromanager. - Build Excellent Websites
Exposed to Build Excellent Websites thanks to the Eleventy Excellent starter. Good guidelines and good tools for Web design.
Free Pascal - Advanced open source Pascal compiler for Pascal and Object Pascal
Niklaus Wirth died this week. The Pascal programming language was only one of his contributions, but it’s the one I kind of know.
Beginner’s Guide to ComfyUI - Stable Diffusion Art
A workflow-based GUI for Stable Diffusion as I learn the different technologies under the buzzword blanket of *Artificial Intelligence*.
ebullient/markdown-it-obsidian-callouts: Markdown extensions for obsidian
Obsidian has some fairly specific syntax for callouts. This extension could help with that for publishing a second brain with Eleventy. Now I just need to switch to Eleventy. And stick with Obsidian. Noto Peninsula Earthquake Relief Custom Ink Fundraising
Cool T-shirts for good causes, by the good folks at, my preferred Fediverse instance.
2023 Word of the Year is “enshittification” – American Dialect Society
Because honestly what other word could describe 2023 so well? Cory Doctorow came up with it, and used it to great effect when describing TikTok and others.

Got a comment? A question? More of a comment than a question?
