responding to this

I have a cron script checking for my annotations (using the API) that creates .md files (and the accompanying .md.meta files) for my tiddlywiki.

In the patent application calle...

Look, I hate Musk and Tesla about as much as anybody, but if new tech can reduce externalities even *on pace* with the rise in scale's increasing them, I'm glad to hear about it.
