Shhh, let's not tell anyone
Baty.net is moving to WordPress

iA Writer vs Emacs
What does RudimentaryLathe.org mean for Baty.net?
Last week I decided that I’d like to write with a bit more discipline than what I’d been doing in the journal entries, so I fired up a new Ghost instance at RudimentaryLathe.org.

Hiding File Permissions in Dired
Searching this site using Pagefind
A couple 4x5 self-portraits
Welcome to Tumblr
As much as I, ehem, LoveIt, the theme’s very theme-specific magic felt like trouble waiting to happen. And honestly, I was bored with it, so I went looking for something new.
Roll-078 (Leica MP)
My first salt-water-aquarium
I almost sold the M10-R
I rage-quit Emacs this morning. By that, I don’t mean that I hit C-x C-c really hard, although I did do that. I mean I stopped using Emacs.
The LoveIt theme is back
Marking a region for highlighting in Hugo posts
Will I always be a static website person?
UPDATE June 09, 2022: This post was copied and pasted from the original WordPress post. Meta! :)
I’m typing this post in the WordPress editor. I don’t enjoy writing here unless I’m adding an image gallery or some other fancy embedded content. It just feels off. “So write in MarsEdit or Ulysses or something instead,” you implore.
Moving my journal to (mostly) digital
Sold: Leica Q2 Monochrom

I love the HHKB but my pinky hurts
I’ve been using the Happy Hacking Professional 2 Keyboard since 2018. After a long search and many different dead ends, I’d found the keyboard for me. I still think the HHKB is nearly perfect, but there’s one problem.
AirPods Max are amazing but I kind of hate them
Blogging with Curio
A few photos from Mother's Day
Use what you have
Book logging in Emacs
I’ve kept a list of books I’ve read as a plain text (well, technically, Markdown) file for years. I wrote about it here. The public version is rendered using Github Pages at books.baty.net. This is fine, but at some point last year I also started logging books in an Org mode file, just to see how it felt. It felt pretty good!
I need a new film scanner
My Epson V750 Pro, purchased in 2009, has scanned thousands of rolls of film, slides, and prints. After making strange grinding noises recently, it has finally ground to a halt.
Searching Org-roam files
Org-roam is “A plain-text personal knowledge management system” using Emacs and Org-mode and I put nearly all my notes in there. While it’s easy to find notes in org-roam based on filename, there’s no obvious way to search the contents of notes. Weird, right?
The West Wing (Show) Productivity System
The last time I rewatched “The West Wing” I was once again impressed by how good people were at their jobs. How productive everyone was. I wondered how I could be that productive.
The kinds of portraits I prefer…Judith Joy Ross, for example
Bringing my Daily posts here to baty.net
Now that I’ve moved my blog back to a static site generated with Hugo, I noticed that I was writing both my Daily notes and my blog posts in side-by-side Emacs buffers. It got me thinking about consolidating my sites even further.
Comparing film and digital: Mom
I had lunch with my parents recently and took a few photos with both my film and digital cameras. I shot about the same number of photos with each camera, with close to the same number of “keepers”. Which do I prefer?
A new blog just for the hell of it
Here we are, running the show as a static blog, using Hugo. But why!? I suppose because I was bored and because it’s fun.
Some unremarkable pens the Internet made me buy
Roll-062 (Leica M3/T-MAX P3200)
I normally don’t like the high-speed films but I’m trying to use what’s in my fridge, so here’s a few from a roll of Kodak T-MAX P3200 shot at 1600 and processed in HC-100.
