Finished a draft of bit 011–101 (chapter 29 of 64) of U/X... almost ½–way. On the homefront, tackled D-basement, what is supposed to be the dining room that we use as our gym.

Hopefully we [ ... ]

the cover's meant 2 look like the the capsule that held the Genesis tablets, but the dirty secret is that it's our tortilla pan > the printer really messed the 1st batch up, the boxes were barely intact (+ thus sum of the boox damaged) + the margins off-kilter, some to the point where the text frame extends beyond the edge (U can tell b/c the edge of the book shd be white but in some of them below it's black): [ ... ]

... a lot different than the "van life" that has become popular these days, especially during covid years. We didn't have all the gadgets + Internet access that ppl have nowadays + nvr would have imagined that there would be a whole culture trying to "make a living" off the way they live by exploiting themselves, showing what they do day-to-day.
