I just peeled an "Inspected by #5" sticker off my body. Am… am I a robot just placed here? How long has it been? What happens to the rejected instantiations?

Possibly it came off my new shirt. That's a comforting story I'll tell myself.

This is my favourite oak tree. It got gnarly limbs that hang like an awning and frame a window into eternity. #photography #mastoart

Once you get in bed with Trump, you just threw away anything you had resembling a moral compass. So for Graham to pressure Georgia to toss ballots really isn't a surprise, it's just Lindsey being his true self: corrupt, spineless, gutless and decidedly unpatriotic.

Summer wasn't that bad, time was flying fast. Now it's getting colder and darker and my mind thinks:"Oh, 9pm! Soon you will go to bed." Problem is it's just 6pm then. Feels like an hour, but then it's just 6:15pm and so on.
I just want this vaccine so bad... I can go outside again, see and meet other people. 8.5 months of self-isolation are exhausting.

I remember one time, when I was a teenager, there was some weird power fluctuation in the house and my grandfather blamed my Commodore 64 because "that thing has gotten into the wiring!"

It's probably for the best that he never had to cope with the idea of Google.

Also, ever since then I've been vaguely terrified that one day technology will pass completely beyond my comprehension like it did with him.

Today's kitten status: still a bit nervous about me getting too close, but definitely more relaxed when I'm around. She'll watch me moving about and even close her eyes as long as she knows I'm maintaining a respectful distance.

She loves being on rooftops, luckily there are many around.

She's eating well and doing some more confident jumps around the shed. Still a bit uncertain about her abilities to land though.

Is it still possible to connect to the internet using an 80s computer?

And could you access the web on an 80s computer?

Can't find any information about this mystery card I yanked from the Apple IIe. The large chip is an asynchronous communications adapter I can't find a datasheet for; everything else is a 74xx logic chip. It's got its own clock. No markings on the other side. The rework wires don't speak to a large production run. Strong TIS-100 vibes from this thing.

COVID-19, death 

We weren't able to visit the grandma of my husband since March because of COVID-19 restrictions and then she died 3 month later. She was born on December, 13th and died on June, 13th with an age of 94.5 years.
When we drive around we sometimes want to visit her. First thought: COVID-19, second thought: she's dead... Both of us have this from time to time.

Amusing nonsense on #MeWe, the kind of community you're not going to find anywhere else.

(No, I'm not a member. Merovingian cults are an obvious fraud.)

You risk paying Ksh 20,000 or 6 months jail time for not wearing mask in public, Kenya.
