The Conc is ready for hibernation. Seven and a half gallons of STA-BIL treated gasoline fill the tank. Battery tender attached.
Did you know you can use the first 24 hours after a traumatic or disturbing event to mitigate its long term effects on your mind and body? Here’s how to begin.

My goal is to create a logo. It doesn’t have to be a Paul Rand quality logo. Instead, I just gotta like it. Adobe Illustrator (AI) is a fine tool for the job.
- You are working in your cognitive space with the computer as the meta-medium
- Creativity ebbs and flows, it is critical
- So too having a plan is critical
My plan follows.
The most important keys on any keyboard for an Emacs user are the Operation Keys (I made up that term). Without them Emacs would be useless. For Techne (the new name for my Emacs keyboard project) I decided to use symbols instead of letters for them.
The operations cluster is on both the left and right side of the keyboard. Yes, that is a full twenty keys just to make life happier in Emacs! I love keyboards so dedicating twenty keys to a critical task is perfect for me. These sections live on a eight row by sixteen column layout so there is plenty of room. It’s bottom left corner is position (1,1) (Row, Column) increasing as you go up and to the right (ala Cartesian coordinates). In the table I wrote the key name and then the symbol. The picture only includes the symbol.
Legend: C# (column number)
|Two||Hyper ⬖||Super ⬙||Meta ⬗||Control ⬘||Space ⭕|
|One||Alt ⎇||GUI ⃟||Ultra ◆||Shift ⇧||Enter ⎆|
My symbol choices started with Sun’s meta symbol. After playing around with that, reading Xah’s page on Unicode input symbols, searching for and comparing symbols with PopChar and playing around with a ton of combinations I ended up here. It is nice because it settles on the diamond theme.
