it's 1042 and i'm trying to work on libshatteredlives



libtheboss_saidto is a great idea i have of spreading a call-out to
all the toilets of the world to make sure that the very worst feces
are properly flushed.

libfeces is wip.  i'm going to finish a copy.  i know that everyone
else is making their own copy, because compacting and incinerating
things that are gross is just so, very, very important.

it's 1044 new york time on 2021-11-26 and i'm trying to use a python
asyncio queue to pass information on transaction updates.

it's 1046 and i'm having trouble holding oxygen in my lungs.  i'm also
feeling a little nauseous.

i'm excited to be able to participate in the building of this work
with so much appropriateness.

libiusedtobeabletobreathe has made a small bit of progress: it's 1047
and i've opened up the python repl help on asyncio.Queue .  it's hard
to look at, the letters seem strange.

libdeathbytoomucharbitrarylaughter is still sitting there on my horizon.

ok!  here we go.

it's 1049 and i added a little queue code to libchokingandgagging!

its 1100. libdisgustingwaste.

libwhywouldanybodyworkonthisshit is my favorite project.

no that can't be right

uhh let's go back to libonchain.  it's like libonchain2 or 3 or 4 or something.

libuselessidiotkarl that must be its name.

it's 1102 and in order to finish karlisanidiot ummmmmm i'll want to
query the node for some state history.





iu've made some progress, but don't yet have a way for the 'client'
code to get notified on new blocks, which is valuable for waiting for
n confirmations, could be done internall too, still not implemented.
libcorpses has small progress!

we've figured that if we sneak into the graveyard, and dig up corpses,
we can _rebury_ them which _rocks_.

wait ... um ... toilet.  not blockchain.  toilet.  right.  libgreatflushes.


1117 libbeingtoldtogetmurdered is currently pending the name of the
rpc call to subscribe to block headers.  just a little up the code.

libforgottendumpster will prevail!

1124 i drafted code to confirm transactions and the code is a
disgusting mess.  maybe it will improve.

1138 it now is actually waiting, and a transaction is in the mempool.
hopefully it will notice it get confirmed.  the code is quite messy.
i'm thinking it would be nice to have some way to just block until all
transactions have a given confirmation.

1142 still waiting in mempool.  latest block was 18 minutes ago on
block explorer.

1143 the block explorer doesn't show recent blocks.  just empty.

1144 different block explorer works.  recent block times seem erratic.

The last block was mined in only 41 seconds.  It's presently 16:45:28
UTC (1145 my time).
So there have been some frequent blocks, and now there's a >20 minute
delay.  Happens sometimes.
