Okay, it’s 7:00 AM. I’ve been having these enormously productive days on
multiple fronts. If you want something done, ask a busy person to do it. If you
want ungodly amounts done, get rid of the daily commute and other profoundly
intense distractions in life. POOF! It takes awhile to get back into that
productive mode. You have to essentially fall in love with the process again.
I’ve known such zone-full flow-states in life before. It was probably my great
twenty-eights at Scala Multimedia. Since then, it’s one version or another of
trying to recapture the magic. The thing is if you keep an open mind and take a
craftsperson’s approach to tool selection an use, you can rekindle the fire.
You can have a second and third great-twenty-eight. I think I’m on my third. I
did a second when I switched to Linux, Python, vim & git.
Now get to it. Do one more wsl2lxd install.bat run to assure yourself you’re at
a good starting-point. And then:
All tests out well. I made a few tiny refinements to the install scripts.
Administrator is not actually required for install.bat if you launch it under
PowerShell or probably even COM without doing it with the icon from the
desktop, LOL! There’s a statement there. Okay, onto the above two implements
which should be easy, breezy, 1, 2, 3esy… 1?
Find the closest example of doing this in the install scripts.
All done. Wow, this is excellent. Going to rename repo (again), but this time
Wow, just spent time debugging the script and it was spaces after the equals
where a bash environment variable was being used.
