Hi Lunar, thanks for the feedback!

Hmm, I'm not sure which is more confusing: scoping rules of an inline
function or bundling references via a partial. Personally I find the
partial to be a little more direct. Expanded the comment explaining

Good point. Added.

My intention with the page was to have two separate sections: projects
and scripts. Unfortunately since there's only a single project using
stem that's presently not very clear. Hopefully that'll improve soon.

Throughout the site I'm using this image/label pattern for section
links so I'm hoping that'll make the linking a little clearer after we
add more. Might be something that I'll need to revisit.
