This is a collection of notes, minutiae, quotes and book lists that are “too trifle, humble and trivial” to be worthy of a formal piece, but still worth preserving from oblivion. More recently, it also includes technical notes about my Linux machine (Ubuntu+i3w) and what I call DIRE (David’s Integrated Research Environment), a set of configs and conventions that create a research and writing environment centered on the use of plain text files (and the glorious Vim editor).

This notebook can thus be regarded as a cyber-punk tribute to Andrés Henestrosa’s endlessly entertaining Alacena de minucias, itself a tribute to Lizardi’s Alacena de frioleras, a column that ran weekly from June 1951 to Feb 1969 in Mexico’s El Nacional.
