I use flat text files as a basic personal wiki on my Mac, initially with Notational Velocity, then nvALT. If anyone who knows a good Vim plugin so I can do it on FreeBSD let me know!

Over time this folder has accumulated 1,182 files, some of which haven’t been touched for years. I thought it’d be fun to surface some of them. Here’s a to-do list for books:

- Chris Hadfield, An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth  
- Tony Windsor, Windsor's Way

Here’s what being geoblocked in Australia looks like:

A strangely short to-do list from our New York trip:

x Midtown
x Flatiron building
- United Nations

And some benchmarks where I noted the CPU but not the disk drive, which seems odd:

## Running
dd if=/dev/zero bs=1024k of=tstfile count=1024 && \
    purge && \
    dd if=tstfile bs=1024k of=/dev/null count=1024 && \
    rm tstfile
