I was looking at ways to configure containers/systems.

Thought haskell propellor was a enough keywords to limit it to Joey Hess' project.

I was wrong.

The word vector is so close to what I wanted but the meaning was still so far away.

Also I wonder what event this diorama was memorializing.

I live in a warm place, but was sent to a cold place for a conference. I am confused by the force field protecting this pond.

The only way to win is not to play.
