land, prices, etc.
Living, as I do, in relative proximity to a capital-c City, it's amazing to me how many places in the US you can look for a plot of land and go "Huh, okay, $40k feels a *little* pricey just for a plot out here. Wait, it's 10+ acres? And includes a small house?".
(This may be a sightly contrived example, as I only ran into like two of those this evening, and usually the buildings aren't something you'd necessarily want to live in permanently, but even so. Prices vary *wildly*.)
Followup: this was a bad idea. I got the thing I wanted to have working working, though.
The only way to have it working appears to break something *else*, but I'm calling that a problem for tomorrow-or-later.
I'm going to listen to two mashups until I get this LaTeX abomination* working.
This is either a good idea or a terrible idea.

@iliana What was the library-keeping software you set up? Would you recommend it?
(I have a variety of archives to keep track of, many of which will be getting spit out to tapes, and I'd like to manage their locations, searching for them, etc.. Very few things will have ISBNs, etc. though.)
autism, study writeup, yeah...
"Autism enhances characteristics such as loyalty and focus which help those with the condition at work and in their relationships with others, experts have found."
Been thinking about those properties in the abstract recently. Interesting to see it in the study population, although I'll point out that n=28, all self-reported in interviews, so take with a pile of salt.
about me, clothing
Come to think of it, this is probably also the only shirt with external writing I've worn this year. Huh.
