This was a hard trip.
It was hard to say goodbye to my mom. It was hard to leave. I'm going to be buried at work for the next week as a result.
There's Hope on the horizon though.
And when I get home, I have an omnibook 425 waiting for me, and maybe even a dot matrix printer.
So I'm going to start working on the #ZineStation486 tomorrow.
Once I have it running, I'll get the meta first issue together (how to zineStation486) and start working on incorporating half an hour of writing back in to my daily routine.
This makes me feel better.
I still have a lot for workflow decisions to make for the #zinestation, and some of that is going to be down to research.
For example, I dunno if there's a good PDF viewer for Windows 3.1, and if there is, I don't know if it supports modern PDFs. (Or PostScript, I guess? Or latex?)
Part of me wants to manage the zines entirely in markdown files, and then write some linker scripts to format that markdown and turn it in to a PDF or whatever for printing.
But can I?
And the rest of me says that I should leave in to vintage computing and use like publisher and print shop pro instead.
(Can I do automatic imposition in publisher or any other windows 3.1 product? Or am I going to be manually imposing my files??)
Anyway, I'll find out tomorrow.
