I've nerdsniped myself - instead of working on the wordpress site I need to finish, I'm trying to reverse engineer the "bionic reading" algorithm for funsies.

It's that thing that went around last week, of text with the first half of each word in bold. Supposedly improves reading speed or comprehension or both; I couldn't discern any difference in the sample text, so I'm making a way to test with larger blocks of text.

I've got a working algorithm, but it doesn't perfectly match. Refining it.

Current status: doing fun things with ReactHttpServer in Sculpin ...

Every time I hear about the "jamf" tool for corporate device management. Every time.
