A rough account of what I did with Emacs recently.
- December 14
Total time elapsed: 2 days, 7 hours, 33 minutes, 11.000 seconds

- Technology status update: I am still trying to get a complete
backup of my unwell laptop, which hasn't had same since
mid-October. Latest behaviour is to run some of a backup then
error out without, you know, an actual error. At this point I've
proactively freed up space on the backup drive and connected to
the network with a cable rather than wireless, so hopefully this
will increase the chances of a successful backup run. I'm also
attempting to use my old BlackBook (my original Mac laptop, 2006
vintage) but that's been hampered a little by software so out of

new backup. Fortunately it only took 3 hours to do the preflight
- December 5
- This is the sort of hardware nonsense I'm currently enduring:
Preflight complete for "Macintosh HD"...
Time elapsed: 5 days, 21 hours, 15 minutes, 48.000 seconds
Note, that's just the preflight. It still has to copy a
few GB of data.

- In which Mrs. gets her H. Dip (Comp Sci). Huzzah!
- December 1
- Y'know, I was convinced that The Lobster would be a bit of
fun. No, it was weird, but not in a good way, and miserable, and
ultimately a waste of however long it ran for. I think whichever
IMDb commentator said it'd have made a good short was on the right
track, if a touch generous.
(If this marks me as some sort of theatrical Philistine,
fine. I've already made clear my liking for movies in which things
explode and neurons need not apply.)
