a subtle but significant change to this web site.
The home page now shows the most recent articles
posted for the various topic threads which comprise this site. Dependent
on publication date, not all topic threads will necessarily be
represented by their latest journal entry. Regardless, this should now
make the home page appear less stale dated.
Surprisingly, despite not having touched the web framework code for
quite some time, these changes were simply and cleanly implemented with
a dozen lines of Ruby code without too much head scratching. The
original design continues to hold up well.
Originally cobbled together with html generating shell scripts in its
earliest incarnations as that proof of concept, it morphed into a web
framework whose underlying technology became a point of interest –
vimwiki with sinatra allowed content to be mapped and
reviewed effortlessly in real time.
Starting out initially as a resource for clients, it has grown to
include a repository of the knowledge accrued during the creation of the
site itself and then some – the WWW being what it is as a meta library
of itself. I like the metaphor.
There are still a number of posts to share regarding the tools used
along the way to create all this. And broader horizons to return to.
There is nothing being sold here. But if you find something of interest,
be it metaphysical, technical or otherwise, wonderful.

plancks with Cherry “Silenced” MX-Black keyswitches with 62 gram springs
and sculpted SA profile keycaps..
Planck constant was supposed to be the last word on this Planck. One
at the change history reveals how far from completion the
project was! Subsequent separate write-ups dated the supposedly forever current
Hence, this page which will reflect only the current keyboard layout that I am
using today. No write-ups – those, if any, will be found in
subsequent articles. Only layouts for visual consumption :-).
The default Planck configuration comes installed with several common togglable
layouts – QWERTY, Dvorak, Colemak, etc. However, my build script only flashes
one layout or base layer, along with my standard suite of extension layers..
numeric keypad layer
function key layer
symbol navigation layer
mouse actions layer
short cuts layer
