# 2020.10.22 > nonverbal it's been two days of nonverbal, and it's just...still too much to use auditory communication. tired of life, tired of fighting ideation and housing and healthcare and trying to regain some measure of livlihood and dignity. tired of life. tired of life. # 2020.10.18 > recalculating Ethics council member called with a request for action. We're taking it under advisement. Walked a bunch. Bike ride to the store for grocery-adjacent things. Reaching out, not sure what the point is. Tired. Really, really tired. 13 days left. # 2020.10.17 > stationary modified anxiety attacks Mostly waiting and making plans. Anxiety surge. Everyone in the collective is short on spoons. # 2020.10.16 > recalculating Our housing officially fell through today. The clock is back at two weeks of survival. This is fine. # 2020.10.15 > imaging We were on track, and then there was a Karen. We had our first family medical imaging appointment. It was a rough start, and then we had to clean up a mess that should have been the responsibility of the clinic office. Then i/we went out, intending to chat with a friendly. Biking towards the park, saw people running across the road, hearing screaming, and someone said "they're trapped under the car...!". Four or five of us jumped in to help the two people straining to keep the vehicle from crushing the person's head, and it was all over in a moment. Their face was cut, but they were still moving and talking, so I moved away to keep from making more chaos around them. Humans are fragile, but we help one another. # 2020.10.14 > recalculating Some conceptual progress on the file structue and repository arrangement, given the restructions imposed by git. Cleaned the bottom of the refrigerator. Condensed and combined with groceries from Blue. Meeting with Greene for Boxanne work confirmed later this week. Looking forward to having a proper inventory of tools, etc. --- Went for a bike ride. Dropped my notebook, but didn't notice until arriving at the park. Went back for it, had tyre marks but was intact. Back to park. Wrote about things for a bit, then headed back. Multiple (3-6?) police cars up the street, it's in front of the place where the notebook had been scattered. Two thin creatures were describing me to the enforcers. Rode away shaken, and a bit outraged. Less than ten minute response time, if the mental math is correct. In all fairness, I was on my bicyle. There's an upended wooden stool grafted into the backend with white and orange twine, with an oversized seat and a rear mudflap made from thick grey plastic. Had my tails on, too. My jacket is formless and has a hood, and is dark coloured. But I was on the street. Never even approached the sidewalk. There was nothing that I did, picking up paper from the street, that could be construed as harm, threat, or offense. Just existing is enough for someone to wish armed force to be deployed against me in this neighborhood. It's rattling. It's a frustratingly rapid response and high turnout, given the [many](https://www.reddit.com/r/Portland/comments/jaclxp/portland_cops_arent_doing_their_jobs/) who wait and wait while violent aggression is reported against them in this city. --- Someone reminded me that legacies are created one action at a time. If those actions are consistent over time, they become routine, or at least habit. When a lifetime is full of seeking trajectories that pursue goals which align with one's core values, it perhaps becomes a pleasant projection in the beholder's thoughts. however, one never knows what becomes of their efforts. Only future generations will know. # 2020.10.13 > redrafting & defining trying to get the aide template hacked together. ...housing call is not happening today, it would seem. Too little planning, too late in the day. --- New term for the concept-diagram process: splat. It was an emergent term, used in the moment to describe a clipboard full of need-for-help diagramming & words. Here's a splat of the concept. Did you splat your thoughts on the meeting? How many splats does it take to communicate the concept to a pair of engineers? Unsure where this is going, but a contributor has offered help with the template process, and using this term seemed to make a lot of sense with them. # 2020.10.12 > overwhelmed overwhelmed by life responsibilities. too many phone calls, scenarios, things to hold in my head. fragments, falling, future-loss that will bite me and harm me but too much for dealing within the now... ...exhausted from always being a half step away from this. Everything is stretched thin to bursting. help me, pretty please? # 2020.10.11 > rest & organization Time spent with needle in hand is more restful than touching a keyboard, these days. Did a hack job on my hair today. Another coop member helped trim it up a bit, but removing the fork tickling my ears was accomplished first. The unconcious weight lifted is a sense of euphoria, at least at first. Then again, any non-painful change these days is a relief. # 2020.09.26 > wobbles Having nonverbal periods with increasing frequency. Much happening in the headspace, just lacking energy to articulate, especially verbally. Churn, churn, churn. Using Factorio as a benchmark for executive functioning works up to a point, but the specialized challenges of the limited environment do not accurately represent my/our functional ability to do non-digital tasking. As a rough idea for how close to burning out i/we are, it works relatively well, but is imprecise when functioning for observation and analysis aren't present. Sometimes, it's easier to just start over. # 2020.09.25 > chaos, exhaustion "neutrality during injustice is oppression" ~ Desmond Tutu, paraphrased # 2020.09.17 > rest Woke at dawn. Stumbled to the latrine, then back to bed. Woke at noon. Showered, somewhat dazed. Tool purchases, Boxanne work, and then another shower. Tonight's meeting has passed one hundred minutes. Very little is still being done, but as things settle in, there's a moment to document. Tomorrow is paperwork and preparations. Possibly, a load to Boxanne, and a sleepover. The next day might involve downtime, possibly with water to swim. We shall see. --- re:Boxanne Confirmed that the vinyl stuff, and even some of the paint, is removeable with a tile scraper. Greene's collective has saved us a substantial fee and loaned tools, so we've offered material transportation credits as compensation. Estimate 2-3 days of work to prepare the surface to be primed, and masking/scouring for priming will take another 2-3 days. re:DarkPi While often back-burnered, this project is never truly "on ice" as it were. Even today, scribblings toward the bridge-connected security system for Boxanne were made, though nothing electronic was altered to manifest the paper decision. Current manually-configured systems are stable, but stuck, and need 2-3 days of work to progress towards automated pieces (read:efficiency) replacing manual processes (read:bottlenecks), specifically in the path of this changelog from repository to publication. # 2020.09.04 > reading, reflection, and reorganization Sitting in Boxanne, reading a book from over a hundred years ago that has direct application in the current events in my city. For centuries, the same problem, identified and belabored by theory, has been ignored by systems of power. This ignorance has bred fascism, among other isms, and that problem is the heirarchy of means. The first means is the means of survival. This means you've food, regardless of source, and shelter enough (though the exact line of "enough" will be debated endlessly, one may be certain). The second means is means of production, and this like the first has been belaboured muchly by theory and industry. The third means is means to produce the means of production, and it is subtle and raw in many forms. In some cases, this is simply an environment to work and rest. As observed by today's book, without room to self-repair, the worker is without their full toolset, which though often forgot begins in the worker's body. In other cases, it is specialized tools, for the crafting of precision parts, but all industrial progress can be described with similar words. So, similarly, can it be the mind, to envision for the manifestation by others, via art rendering, schematic, or process. For every means of production, there are many methods to maintain or create that means, but they are not often known outside the communities of workers who actually repair the engines of industry. For some, a pincer or a wrench will do, and time balances against toolset and resources for the end result. Given enough time, and boredom, most of us can be persuaded to tinker almost endlessly. Means of means of production is the process, physical resources, and environment necessary for creating a node of self-sustaining, self-improving industry, for a given niche/subsector. # 2020.09.02 > retrospection & recovery There's a lot of file sorting that needs to happen. Our group engineer and design/accessability lead are scheduled to meet within the week or two next and merge the three differing org filing systems. The current merge is three people's personal files mixed with several different organization microcosms, and all told it's still little enough that a single room suffices for the sorting. Three of us focusing on the task, or perhaps one more if we're fortunate, will make short work of it, and setting a trajectory now is important for long term antifragility. Meanwhile, on the digital side, we're attempting the same with a network attached storage cluster, but before buying more hardware we're organizing what we've got. There's probably several terrabytes of free space, all combined, but it's in small chunks spread across a dozen machines, and programmatically aiding in the sorting of the existing data is the current focus. Deduplication is a recurring problem, and nested backups in at least one location have caused additional difficulties in recovery management. Also, right now, there's kinda...no real backup of a lot of this. So, that's a problem we're going to be addressing. We're scheduled to start the org merge process...tomorrow. --- So, today i/we are looking at the cards that we hold. Creating a Minetest/Matrix microserver is kinda large in my minds, tbqh. We need a squad space (thanks https://otherinter.net/squad-wealth/ for the words) that isn't going to evaporate, so that means something digital. # 2020.08.18 > static Every one of these timeskips are filled with countless details, portions of the picture that did not make it into the log. Sometimes, retrospection gives a fragment of the lessons learned, or the progress achieved, into a shareable format. The core concept of our group is access to viable housing. Conversation with a friendly this morning produced good news, that our time spent last year bears fruit, and of a growing in kind way. Our friend and mentor, they have spent their pandemic time developing hydroponics compatible with our microhousing structures. Many of the things we are building, they will need. We feel the need to move faster, but have time for fewer things, and not all that is felt can be followed. What is the path of logic? What helps the most people, and still allows us to survive as well? --- Our friend spoke of discerning the static from signals, and the wisdom of knowing when less is more. There's a lot we've had to withdraw from, for lack of energy and time and space to do analysis of trajectory-modifying events or activities. We focus intently where we are, but still often feel for others who struggle elsewhere. Together, we resist. Together, we rise. # 2020.08.13 > recalibrating Week was pretty well planned out, then a teammember had vehicle issues and we started reconsidering our path. Both of us are focusing on the same side project, and we're in need of focus to get any project to a viably-sustaining place. The concept, engineering, and business model are all sound, but it all needs to be recorded, tested, schematics drawn, budgets calculated, and the min/ideal/max asks abstracted and presented at least twice before it's "investor ready". Capitalism forces our hand, and it's a long shot, despite how solid all the numbers are. There's a pandemic on, so investors are skittish, and we're functionally unknown in the sectors we're intersecting with the infrastructure, architecture, and logistics of the plan (as-is). Perhaps identifying the subject matter experts who could validate our work would be a good step? More contemplation is necessary. # 2020.08.05 > lift, running Half dozen load of laundry. Dinner through the weekend. Plant upkeep, garden reorg. Cooperative resource management outreach day, very tentative. Tomorrow will be another lift, it's looking like. fourteen minutes until the next laundry load is done. That's about how long it takes to find something useful to commit, right? # 2020.08.02 > rest, planning. Assessment of this place continues. Still need to contact the dwelling repair place for an estimate on the door and bedroom slideout. . Neighborly policy seems to be dumping yard waste into the back treeline. The garbage area is overwhelmed, and would be dangerous for anyone less than fully abled. - Thought about doing laundry (again). The hurdles of the touchscreen payment interface, the shared space during the pandemic, and the unexpecteds of strangers hasn't pushed me to run my loads. It's a relief that there's enough machines that loads can be run simultaneously. # 2020.07.26 > rest Fixed the internet. Had to do a factory reset on the router, then fiddle with the wireless settings a bit. Might have been flaky firmware dropping something from some dhcp clients, might have been Comcast testing a MitM attack against Firefox's DNS-over-https implementation, we'll never truly know. The important bit is we are externally connected again, and it's time to...rest. ...and decide where to engage the outside world as stability continues. Doing some much-needed backups. The SD card errors on the external camera are getting more frequent, so replacing the storage device with a new chip will (hopefully) resolve that worry. # 2020.07.25 > lift Boxanne cleanout. White Hanger (corner) cleanout. Storage Unit deposits. Driving home. # 2020.07.24 > prep Waiting for utilities connection. Then debugging utilities connection. Worksite drive and 3-hour sprint, then some downtime by the river with other free radicals. # 2020.07.22 > running. Groceries. Supplies. Various consumables. Finally getting time to think ahead more than a day or two. Need to get roof repairs for Chariot, stat. Also needs door, awning, window seal, plumbing, runaway brake, and an AC wiring assessment. Also a washer/dryer/dishwasher. And probably furnace repairs. Would also be nice to get a better waste removal cycle going, too. And probably re-leveled (with a slightly rear-ward bias) to avoid AC unit leakage. Dreadnaught just got transmission repairs, and needs an assessment for additional upkeep. Boxanne is in the shop, getting ignition, muffler, and brake line repairs. Will definitely need to get a battery maintainer set up, too. Ragnorak needs frame repairs, strut and/or leafspring replacements, and a laundry list of other routine often-postponed maintenence stuffs. Shelving and bins for the lab are on the way, along with the 3d printer. Bringing the development environment back online will take some work, but all the pieces are now pretty much in one place. Laundry is a bit of a pain. The machines are charge, with debit, via a touchscreen interface. During the pandemic. So, doing a lot of gloved-hand interactions with an annoyingly overcomplex touch interface. Not a fan. Basic utilities should be free, as should basic food and housing. # 2020.07.22 > pivot. Today was a lift. Groceries, then welder retrieval. Social disruption concluded. Utilities here are stable and it feels safe, if pretentious. They tolerate i/we/us? At least while i/we are able to continue paying the rent-toll. This path towards stability becomes wider and more stable, but we fret over small delays. We must remember to breathe. There is a way forward, here, where i/we can spend time writing beautiful code. And today is not that day. But soon, there's promise of more than enough, among a community that cares, and builds stuff together. People who have sparks of their own, that they've cultivated and waited, and now it's all coming out to play. Tomorrow's service installation reconnects this local net to the wider web, and there's a loss, every time this happens, of individuality, of sorts. The machines behave closer to "should", and there's an element of constantly-escalating complexity to keep the stacks of silicon alive and functioning as intended. There's a peace, amid this bubble. One can almost pretend that the riots aren't beginning, tonight, as with other sundowns for the past two months. #PDXAdjacent Things would quiet down if police would stop beating up people who protest police beating people up, yeah? #BlackLivesMatter If you're able, tonight, go out and be a #WhiteShield for someone. # 2020.07.22 > reality. Housing stability confirmed, after social interaction far exceeding spoon count or desire. Dreadnaught is back, it feels like a solid repair. Time will tell. Internet connectivity is scheduled for setup this week. Medications refill obtained, exercise routine seems to be working so far. Legal research and itemized problem solving has begun. Social circumstances updated, but tiring to process. So few emotional labour spoons, but our priorities are dictated by survival. We're stable here as long as money lasts. As soon as Boxanne is repaired, we'll be starting intake. Means of production is within our grasp, now. Daring to hope for more than survival is hard. Sometimes i/we just hope to survive. Knowing that we have a way to make, create, and innovate brings joy. # 2020.07.21 > planning Tomorrow is a busy day. The morning begins with Dreadnaught fetching, and likely includes negotiating social circumstances to deal with a tool delivery gone awry. Lawyers for the landperson pushback and disability are high priority, as is remediating the background check. > retrospective We're stable again, for the moment. We evacuated from the hostile landperson environment, to what we thought was a good place with external connectivity, from which we could plan next steps. The location was passive aggressively hostile, did not have connectivity, and we left early, attempting to find better. Since then, we were supposed to work with a collaborator who offered a place to stay, but communication broke down, and we evacuated again. Then our transmission pump failed, and we faced a week without the ability to move our Chariot-home. A stopgap of renting a truck got us to a location where, provided we pass the background check, we'll have three months of solid housing, safe food choices within biking distance, and a stable internet connection so that we can work. On the horizon are several legal battles, land purchasing, and a lot of careful words. # 2020.06.29 > planning? Learning NixOS. Apparently. Bringing the changelog microsite back online. Dealing with name change paperwork. # 2020.06.14 > recovery? Purchased a mattress today. Got bogged down in other purchasing stuffs but... ...simultaneously relieved to finally be one step closer to restful sleep alongside partner. ...simultaneously guilty about spending money on myself, even when it is money earned with my own spilled blood. ...simultaneously exuberant about a future with multiple branching possibilities, rather than the dragging weight of survival every day obliterating anything but the most careful path. Budget is 30% towards land down payment, 10% towards vehicular/mobile infrastructure, 5% tech, 5% general repair. There's so many ways we could use these funds in an instant, and survival dictates caution and consideration. We've begun using the funds as a group, rather than individually, and # 2020.06.10 > recovery? Mobile office brought to site two days ago. We'd sought a bumper-pull trailer, but found a 6 meter box truck with a 4kw generator and an old bank alarm system that the original owner had grafted into it at some point in time. There's enough room for all the electronics prototyping gear, the air/plasma tools, and a small library, besides a sleeping rack and cargo spaces. Office organization proceeds rapidly. Sorting, organizing, preparing. Lists of parts, parts of lists. Isolating from networked communication for focus. The world will yet turn when we are able to think outside the box truck. And we're about 19 hours behind on sleep, from just the past two weeks. # 2020.06.02 > ??? Five of us have committed to living on the land. We've added 20% to our initial budget, and prequalification for loans, grants, and other methods of increasing our purchasing power are being pursued. All the chaos aside? Today was nice. --- Visited my parents. Helped mother with a bit of weeding. Father was busy, but stepped out of the office to converse. Explained more of the plans, and we discussed next steps. We are obtaining an enclosed trailer to put our office into, working from home gets complicated by space limitations in a fifth wheel home. Land options are being pursued, one more than the others, and prequalification for the necessary amounts are being pursued. Activism efforts are ongoing, and seem to be progressing well. Individuals are taking personal responsibility for their place in the larger effort, and it's encouraging. Not having everything on my shoulders is encouraging. I'm so, so very exhausted. # 2020.05.19 > ??? ...still doing laundry. Updating the log, since brain is too wired to meditate. # 2020.05.18 > ??? Contacted mediation lawyer regarding funds dispersal. Reviewed & responded to occupancy proceedings. Pharmacy. Groceries. Concentrate. Laundry. Four...five loads? EOD -->'19 # 2020.05.07 > ??? Almost two years ago, I got beaten up by cops (see https://issuepedia.org/US/OR/Detroit/2018-06-04_police_beating), and our lawyer has reported (as of this week) that they've received the settlement funds via check from the county deputies office, and we're now just waiting for the banks to process things. As of two days ago, we are dealing with hostile and increasingly aggressive landpersons, one of whom is an ex-cop, and my energy has to focus on getting myself and family to someplace...else...safely. (Our area has an eviction moratorium, and they've not actually done the legal necessary to evict us, but we're moving post-haste because of the potential for the ex-cop with anger issues to escalate things.) --- How this intersects with GenStrike and other allies: **Our plan is to obtain 10-30 acres of land, using aforementioned funds, and build a community waystation of sorts**, where we rebuild trailers and motor homes...but also make our infrastructure, space, and other facilities available to travelers and caravans who need aid with some of those longer-term logistics. Myself and partner live in a 5th wheel, so home-relocation is doable, and foreclosure/short sale/auction options (basically anything with anything with a working septic field) are all potentially viable, allowing us to consider significantly discounted properties in our area. Provided all goes properly with the bank processing and purchasing, we will start living on-site immediately. I'm a mechanical engineer who does blacksmithing, who grew up on a small farm, so this venture is well within my personal abilities, but we're seeking to build something larger here. Including myself, we have engineers, animal people, a couple of mechanics, and several more-or-less serious gardeners in our local group competency pool, without counting online resources or collaborators. We have enough funds to look at around 10-20 rural-ish acres, and we'll probably cap it at 30 people on-site at any one time. Our intentions and designs are towards sustainable agricultural/power/living, in flow with the land and one another. We're in the Cascadia bioregion (west coast, USA/Oregon), and are willing to coordinate with anyone willing to hash out codes of conduct and mutual aid agreements with us. # 2020.04.29 > Retrospective (-0) Significant funding source made major movement yesterday, we learned via our messages this morning. Means of production can be procured, and platforms of sustainability can be created with them. Also, our landpersons did a 180 on us about building anything permanent here. From "everybody builds stuff" and "we love the ringing of the anvil in the distance" to "everything has to be mobile" and "we live in a tin can and a shop will be too noisy". Pivoting, because that's what we do. We take what is offered, the steppingstone and resource convenience, and we build something better, elsewhere. # 2020.04.28 > Rest (-1) # Gardening Planted the rest of the potatoes today. The volunteer sunflower, garlic, and green onions are looking good. # Foundry Did a first heat of a tool reclaim platform. Meditations on flame and embers. Under a covid-mask, nobody can see you scream. # 2020.04.27 > Exert (+1) Agenda: Structure and threat model docs (#GS2020). # Gardening More garlic, potted the one green onion that was struggling. Volunteer sunflower plant found on Ragnorak's windscreen gap, transferred to a shared box for cultivating. # Foundry Re-set the metal bed, staged the extra chair mechanisms. # 2020.04.26 > Sunday There was sunshine today, and then rain starting a bit after dark. Tomorrow's forecast is for rain, and the day after, sun. # Gardening Prepared potatoes for planting. Chopped the sprouted ones into chunks with at least two sprouts, and set them for planting tomorrow or the next day. Garlic is sprouting, and all but one of the green onions are doing well. The green onions are our first hydroponics attempt, and so far they appear to be thriving. The water has to be changed every day, but it's become a nice routine. The transplanted tree is doing well, the day-after wilting seems to be gone, and the tub is draining effectively. Our next garden-related project will be to catch the outflow, dump it into the greywater tank, and get the greywater filtering for recirculation. # Organization Reached out to org contact points, letting them know we're alive and processing offline. Still working on having a good routine to our contributions. # Foundry Moved and set the barrel table, the hoist, and the firebox. Cleared the rails and set them for crosspiece welding, then moved and stacked the framework away from the creekside path entry. Retrieved the anvil stump. # Grounds Ripped out the invasive vines near the first landing, and put another few rounds of stones in place beside the water. Checked the pool depth, and discovered that it is waist deep or higher, with shin-height water flowing on the approach. Brought another load of rocks for the walls and under the driveway. # 2020.03.28 > Saturday Took an hour or two off and played a game for a bit with a friend today. The morning was spent decompressing from the night before, a meeting with a friend ended with miscommunication and financial stress. Today, the hernia site is aching, and we're so far behind on health care paperwork that we use the piles as workspaces, lol. There's financial aid coming, finally, soon, maybe. The Detroit settlement will give us engine repairs and new shoes. Between getting caught up on necessaries and a solid eighteen months of business funding, the settlement is giving us a chance, a shot, at making change happen. It will give us the chance to catch our breath, For the moment at least, We sometimes feel the weight of our chains, so deep. We're going to be okay. We're going to have enough. Unless, of course, the covid-19 pandemic ends western civilization, In which case we'll put on a little party hat, and cheerfully greet the apocalypse alongside our local community, knowing that we'll grow gardens in the ashes of the sins of civilization past, Together, Together, Together. ~ T # 2020.01.16 > Thursday 0000->0400: Project collaboration (#FIELDLAB00) 0430->1200: Rest. 1230->1300: Breakfast. 1330->2100: Project collaboration (#FIELDLAB00) # 2020.01.16 ...more time lost.

And then a pattern of logging, disrupted by a stretch of low-spoon days. How long will this last? # 2019.12.14 FriendsGiving. But first, breakfast with the parental at the local cult. Small wins, and reinforcing an attitude of opennes and gentle boundaries. They still deadname me constantly. Fried bird bits in oil for the first time today. There was alcohol and potatos and gravy and deviled eggs. So often, our chosen family supports us better than blood or biology.

What was it we did yesterday? # 2019.10.07 --- break --- >>>>>>> github/master # 2019.09.08 Created digital download microsite, hosted externally. Discussed and vetted text with team, integrating edits from design lead. Met with documentation lead about ticketing systems, decided on iterim system until scaleable versioning/ticketing is (back?) online. # 2019.09.07 Discussed resource exhaustion and task effiency with documentation lead. Researched and obtained hourly remote virtual assistant. Set initial task, discussed with documentation, mischief, and design leads. Meditated. # 2019.09.06 Research in isolation for monetizing forward path. Identified a body of knowledge for digital reproduction, met with design and documentation leads to establish tasking. Created escapitalism meta-project, decided on hosting provider, delegated e-cart research to documentation lead. Rough day for team in multiple ways. # 2019.09.05 Housecleaning, then a 400km drive.

Contacted journalism candidate, emphasized safety and difficulties of verifiable identity in the digital age. Housecleaning. # 2019.09.01 Brief discussion about a potential pivot, should file storage & associated services not pan out relatively well. Moved the BattleWaggon, attended a birthday party. Sync'd the ABP archive between GitLab and BadFruit, ran updates, and took the system offline for upcoming travel period. # 2019.08.31 Progress on functions.sh before breakfast. Checkin with documentation lead on next steps. Gained buy-in from documentation and frontend recruit. Clarified meta-repo purpose and division of work for establishing necessary structure. Obtained quote for two bare-metal backend server options. Pruned work priorities and set work-end conditions for copyedit lead. Scheduled fashion demo with contract client and design lead. Made decision on Academy & Theatre projects (flagged for archive). Additional recruitment efforts for photography & development departments. # 2019.08.30 Met with prospective editor, as well as a future scientist. Discussed launch loop project with documentation lead, created diagrams for explaining cross section and landing/energy/control mechanisms. Extended conversation into the truth mapper, along with a deep dive into project governance and the process of relinquishing control. Identified three potential developers for the project, two backend primaries and one frontend primary, and established LaTeX as the 'publishing' documentation paradigm, with Markdown and Dia used for development and graphical representation of information, respectively. Tested ZenPhone with Republic Wireless SIM, verified 4G works, need to verify SMS/MMS and voice call capabilities. # 2019.08.29 Changelog Met with documentation lead to discuss path forward. Obtained buy-in for infrastructure offering meta, deferred prototype selection to end-of-day. Load balancer spec agreed upon, as a precursor for any/all auto-scaling infrastructure. Added numeric flag to functions.sh `com/namer.sh` subfunction. @todo - update defaults for `com/namer.sh` to length of 5, with numeric division for clarity. (possible combinations from these defaults increase from `392882600736521` (`73241*73241*73241`) to `3.92882600736521e16` (`73241*10*73241*10*73241`), which is...probably excessive, but format of `numberal3split5words` is easier to remember, and the function will be used to name the automated infrastructure) Submitted [vultr-cli PR](https://github.com/vultr/vultr-cli/pull/47), based on difficulties encountered when switching from Debian (remote) dev to OSX local dev. Created Github org for Rheos One. Need to get profile IDs for team members.
