I've finally finished with Dockerfilesfor the moment and graduated to
Been a bit ill this week, so sleep instead of progress.
Well, I did tinker a little bit, and I now have an automated pipeline for my documents into paperless. Much better than some commercial solutions, too.
Also, accurately tracking room temperature again, even across different places. This led to an interesting experiment: does running my computer increase room temperature. The answer is: yes it does, but only when the computer is doing something. Well, that's the preliminary result and more research is needed.
Finally, I might, accidentally, have started another gamedev project with Elderic. It was an accident!

- Mental speed is high until age 60 as revealed by analysis of over a million participants -- Nature Human Behaviour: "Our results indicate that response time slowing begins as early as age 20, but this slowing was attributable to increases in decision caution and to slower non-decisional processes, rather than to differences in mental speed. Slowing of mental speed was observed only after approximately age 60. Our research thus challenges widespread beliefs about the relationship between age and mental speed."

- Old plasma dilution reduces human biological age: a clinical study -- SpringerLink: "The results on biological age are strongly supported by the data, which demonstrates that rounds of therapeutic plasma exchange (TPE) promote a global shift to a younger systemic proteome, including youthfully restored pro-regenerative, anticancer, and apoptotic regulators and a youthful profile of myeloid/lymphoid markers in circulating cells, which have reduced cellular senescence and lower DNA damage."
- Saturated fat: villain and bogeyman in the development of cardiovascular disease? -- European Journal of Preventive Cardiology -- Oxford Academic: "Collectively, neither observational studies, prospective epidemiologic cohort studies, RCTs, systematic reviews and meta analyses have conclusively established a significant association between SFA in the diet and subsequent cardiovascular risk and CAD, MI or mortality nor a benefit of reducing dietary SFAs on CVD rick, events and mortality. Beneficial effects of replacement of SFA by polyunsaturated or monounsaturated fat or carbohydrates remain elusive."

- Tokyo 42: I love this game. It's fantastic. It's a great mixture made of isometric, retro, 3D, action, sci-fi and whimsy. But with a controller it's absolute garbage. Part of the appeal is that with the precision of the mouse you can accurately track objects across half the world, without having to deal with depth. With a controller you have to aim directionally. Ugh, I can't play this on Deck.
- Strange Horticulture: What a strangeI mean, it's right there in the title. What I'm saying is that it's not just the horticulture that is strange, but also the game. little game. It's an... uh... occult pattern matching puzzle, where people ask for plants and you have to identify them according to your botanical encyclopaedia. Sometimes you'll know the name, but that won't help you much. Sometimes you only know a few clues, and those are very easy. And when you do it wrong, you have to puzzle back your sanity. But there's also atmosphere, and story (you have to find the plants, and solve a murder, and help people), and characters, and places, and mystery. There's no time pressure, just puzzles. I was surprised that it didn't have any plant-care mechanics, because there is a watering can; but I like it, less stressfull that way. I have no idea how to classify this game, which is awesome. 8/10
