My granddad is in town, I was looking forward to the chance to talk to him again before he dies.
Seems that's not going to happen, 2 months ago he was still pretty capable apparently he got worse fast. He doesn't know who I am any more and seems to alternate between fear the German's are coming (Polish) and humming idly to himself.
The man like 1/4 raised me, and I don't think I'll ever get to speak to him again. There's just granddad shaped meat now, I wasn't ready for this yet.
Anyone have any experience in breaking rolling code key fobs?
Decided to clone my garage door clicker and aside from the obvious playback attack I'm not really sure how you'd go about extracting the secret from the hardware.
Captured a few radio packets, seems like a 4 btye code. Not game enough to open a 400 dollar fob with no clones on the market to see what chip is driving it. Any way to identify it?
Riding at night: fun
Riding in the rain: fun
Riding with luggage: bike handles like a shitty boat but ok
Riding in traffic: grumble fine
All together: holy shit I'm going to die.
1/10 do not recommend. That was fucking awful. Maybe if I took passengers more I wouldn't have found it so bad but holy shit tall luggage likes to drag you around in the wind.
Blerg, I need a drink but the bottlo closes at like 1800 here :p

So I decided to cover my greys in a more interesting way.
I think it turned out well! Also hello internet
Anyone recommend some good fantasy authors?
I've just finished the final fitz and the fool book and I need something to lift me out of post series longing. Was thinking about a black company reread but I'd prefer to read something I haven't before.
Past favourites (and recommendations for those who like reading):
Kingkiller, malazan, book of the new sun, fitz/liveship, broken empire, first law, obernywton, old kingdom, black company, and culture (pretends to be scifi, actually fantasy).
House! House-house! House house house house house house!
My neighbours are friendly! The library next door is awesome! There are birds in my backyard!
Suburbia, that thing I swore I'd never do as an angsty teen, seems to agree with me. I haven't felt this relaxed and happy in about 15 years.
I can smell forest on the air, I hear nothing but birds and wind and bees.
Omfg this is so awesome!
While frantically packing for the move tomorrow something curious occurs to me. Worry, or more generally anxiety, only fits in your head when it's already full of other things.
I wonder if this is somehow related to the neurological basis of the emotion. Like is anxiety somehow a side effect or misfiring of excessive systems propagating signals? Or perhaps some regulatory system breaking down and failing to regulate attention to appropriate levels?
New house! Well rental.
The whole poly family is moving in together, I'm so excited. It'll be so much fun to share a house with all my partners!
Also the place is super nice and in the blue mountains which are my second favourite place in NSW.
Anyone live in the mountains have good advice on bush walks/mountain biking trails? I think I'll take it up again now I'll live next to the bush again.

You know, I'm actually not done ranting. I'm about as queer as they come and my whole fucking life people like me are used as political footballs.
Shit has gotten a lot better for sure, I can now call my wife my wife and I can hold hands with who I like without death these days. But jesus shit fuck can people just leave people like me alone.
I don't want your respect, or even acceptance. I just want to be able to read the news without being considered an enemy for like a year for once?

This Phillip Ruddock report is a crock of shit aye.
I don't really see why discrimination is something worth protecting, I'll admit I'm not the biggest fan or religious schools but look if people want to go there alright, what business of the school's is it whether a dimple or a dangle gets the kids or teachers excited in their off time?
There's no way we'd tolerate this shit in any other sector of society. Why is it even seriously discussed? Is there still that much revulsion?
The @time account is the most useless thing I've seen anyone set up. A "time" without a time zone is pretty dumb.
Just know that if you created this, I think you are a terrible person.
I'm kinda sick of lacking pockets. How far out of the city do you think I have to move before I can get away with wearing a bandolier everywhere?
Or is that just a pipe dream.
Alternatively, anyone know a handbag company that makes durable ones with reasonable capacity? Most I've tried are stitched for looks rather than function.
I'd like to be able to carry a couple of books, first aid kit, rope, and a moderate tool kit. I'm tired of being jealous of my boyfriend >:(
Goes to hand in found wallet:
Cop: *interrogates me*
That was not how I imagined that would go. He did warm up after I expressed no interest in the contents if it was not claimed (which apparently you can do? Wtf? Finding something doesn't give you property rights over it).
Is it normal for police to be rude and abrupt when you're trying not to commit a crime? Most of my interactions have been on the other side of the law :/

Had my sister round for board games on the long weekend. We all come from a bit of a broken home and sometimes that comes out.
She snapped at me, my wife called her out, she then snapped at my wife and now they're fighting.
Hurrah! No idea how to handle this, she's generally a lovely person but damn she has a cruel streak as wide and deep as our mother's.
I know the trope is love your family but jesus some day's that's hard.
I like food, hitting hot iron, motorcycles, games of all kinds, books, and Oxford commas.
