A book of prose poetry called Hyttysteni
painaumia has just come out, illustrated by me. A nice second to the
list of publications as Algoristo.
The past few weeks have been pretty interesting. I recently bought my first
own apartment, and I have lived here for about two weeks. Somehow, I had
gotten stuck in the previous rental room for almost nine years; for a
hardware geek with a solid ISP, moving poses its own challenges. Another
potential issue is finding a rental one with no fixed income or otherwise
reputable position. OTOH, my finances have been good for a while now,
and seeing friends move earlier this year has opened my eyes too. So when a
fellow theatrician was selling her 2-room flat with GbE to the wall and the
interior plan of a graphic designer, I needed not hesitate much. I did
consider a larger one from another acquaintance but with fewer such
benefits, and later it turned out their moving plan was cancelled, so this
was a good call.
Earlier, I was aiming for a 3-roomer for a separate tech/server space, but as I opted for other benefits and smaller maintenance fees, it's all in a bigger living room with not much separation for the workspace. A separate bedroom makes potential server hum a non-issue, but I'm also aiming to work with a little less hardware. With news like "mining-only" GPUs from the major manufacturers, cryptocurrency mining with GPUs is now mainstream enough to lose any serious interest. Then again, there is plenty of other work for computers/GPUs such as my algorithmic art. I already have a Mini-ITX box for live shows and I might get some more.
