Weeklog for Week 34: August 21 to August 27


Back to work. Everything as normal.

Played around with Llama2 with two co-conspirators. Great fun, and also: works. And many ideas streamed from that, so I'm super-happy.

Had some very interesting discussions with friends and colleagues. Very nice.


Libraries, programming, etc


  • The Skeleton Key by Erin Kelly: After I've seen this recommended more than once on my timeline, I picked it up and tried it out. I can't connect with it at all. I mean, sure, the mystery aspect and the treasure hunt, I love that. But the main protagonist is an almost middle-aged woman artist with an adopted teenager and a very unstable living situation. I don't know, I guess the distance is just too far.
  • Providence by Max Barry: something completely different this time: Space Soldiers in Space, against Space Aliens That Want To Kill Us. It's well-written, and unnerving. I don't know how it concludes yet, but I can see potential for a handful of twists coming up.



  • Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak (free from EGS)
  • Saints Row (from waitlist)


  • Sektsorbet
