I have a daily habit of working on side projects, and I've come to appreciate the benefits of tracking that habit out in the open. If I'm doing work on a software project, I track that on GitHub. If it's more hands-on, I like to post an update here.

  1. When you don't have the right wrench, but you have a bandsaw... having some fun while waiting for glue on notebook #5 to dry.

  2. Finally started working on notebook #5! Tried some new things, like drilling the holes into the whole stack of paper all at once, instead of using an awl. Didn't go perfectly, but happy with the result.

    The paper I used is also thicker than usual. Not sure yet what I think about that. Will have to see the end result.

  3. Notebook #4 is almost finished! Use some different techniques that time, that I'm very happy with. And as usual, I have a million ideas for the next one.

  4. Got a stack of paper in the mail today. It's a bit heavier than what I've used so far (120 g/m², as opposed to the usual 80 g/m²). But more importantly, it's the right size (A5). This saves work and eliminates one source of inaccuracy.

    Looking forward to trying it, but first I need to finish notebook #4.
