ONI: c51, and a couple of building tips. That space next to the musher is going to be infinite food storage. I need it vacuumed out and filled with chlorine.
The stairs down & up on the west are actually a working liquid lock. We usually make permanent ones, but I won't need access to this room, so I really only need the lock for a short time. Two dribbles of water is all it takes. It won't last long, but I don't need it to.
The fastest & easiest way to a vacuum is to fill all the gas tiles with a solid, then use diagonal deconstruct. Whatever was in them is gone when the tile is built, and you get vacuum when it's destroyed. Wouldn't work in this case, but it's the best way.
The "water wall" thing is useful, too. It's only about 40g of water. How do you get "only 40g"? Go find some spilled water and mop it. The bottles will be variable sized and mostly small. Set your bottle emptier to sweep-only with a high priority, and go sweep one bottle. Bingo.
Once the room's pumped to vacuum, I will use the canister emptier to get some chlorine there. The canister filler/emptier concept is really handy for small jobs like putting a few kilos of chlorine in a tiny room. It's labor, but vs building a long pipe and filtering it's cheap.
Okay, c58. Next stop, the first drecko ranch. Then the rodriguez, which I'm putting north & a little east of that ph2o pool. There's an AETN in the ice biome just offscreen to the east.
Along the way, I'll go ahead and get a metal refinery running out of that pool. As usual, we're water-rich, with a cool steam vent above and then just above that a water geyser.
c68. The first two layers of the drecko ranch are in. That ladder-y bit over to the east will be the rodriguez.
Keeping the mealwood cool enough in the drecko ranch is a pain. Until I get base cooling, I think I'm just going to run a loop of ph2o through that ice biome.
Okay, it's c84, the rodriguez is up and running, tho not fully primed yet.
I really like that rodriguez build, I use it in all my playthroughs. It's capable of making a solid 3kg/s of o2, requireds only a little refined metal, self-powers, is still h2-positive. A situation like this, where I have the AETN down below is ideal for it.
Okay, then, it's c115, and I'm finally ready to head down to the oil (and otherwise generally explore and start capping geysers). Got the exosuits, the dreckos are in, the hatches.
Okay, big project time. It's c127, and I want to get my petroleum boiler set up about the same time as I start the industrial brick above. I am going to run a magma spike up the east wall of the asteroid.
That's a cool steam vent, and it's kinda in the way. I want my counterflow to be on the order of 80 pipes long. Somewhere there's a formula, but 80 seems about right. I'm thinking I can do 5 levels of 17 or so. That'll just fit under the cool steam vent.
I'm going to do an infinite storage for the oil and the petroleum both down there.

"It puts the database on its browser skin, or else it gets the hose again." This task occupies the daily life of a great many programmers. Today, I want to throw out some random sparks of advice for people working in that setting.
Folks, my ideas about changing code are deeply intertwined with my ideas about changing the world, which is a far more important activity than any kind of geekery. Let's geek out, for sure.

But please keep working for change, and supporting those who do.

Black Lives Matter.
In enterprise IT, it is commonplace for backend folks to work on problems shaped like this: there's a web endpoint controller on the top, a database on the bottom, and some simple or complicated business logic in the middle.

ONI: So I showed off my base reference, and I've just about got it up and running.
Classic off-by-one, of course: I built one more layer in the base than I actually need. I'll chop that off here in a bit.
It's only c40, I feel like I'm having a good run here. I have 9 dups, the shrooms are starting to build. The next thing in the base is to get the kitchen area closer to how I want it when the shrooms are in. I have one hatch ranch to the east, just getting started.

When we talk about transitioning to microtest TDD, we have to figure out how to provide the right experiences in the right order. That's why I propose we start by getting the experience of changing a well-microtested graceful class.
Folks, my ideas about changing code are thoroughly entangled with my ideas about changing the world, a topic of far greater importance. Let's geek out, by all means, but let's also act outside the monitor.

Black Lives Matter.
"Create Experiences, Not Arguments" is one of the core habits of change-harvesters. We want to take that slogan very seriously when we approach any significant change to our practice. And microtest TDD, believe me, is a significant change.

@AlexandraErin If I just tweet this to you, does it count?
@AlexandraErin Hmmm. Apparently that's legal.
I have a lot of respect for you, have followed you for a while, and tho there's quibbles here or there, no matter.

Not being able to reply to you, in favor or opposed, makes me feel I should move on. I didn't come here for radio stations I can't interact with?

Funny! Smart! Tradition-enriched!

This a nice "I'm Confessin'". Lizz Wright.

One of her takes that just features her voice more than her sense of style.
Wright has a lovely not-quite-contralto, but what I really like in general is the richness of her voice connecting, both with the tradition she pulls from and the combo she plays with.
