It's snowing here in Northern Ontario and I'm not impressed. I miss Australia 😂

trump media thing 

It looks like there is a high probability that a Trump sponsored social network lifted Mastodon's code, and will be using the API as a backend for apps. It does not appear to have federation enabled. Still it might be good to proactively suspend the domains:

* tmediatech.io
* mobile.tmediatech.io

I don't remember how I came across it, but pointerpointer.com is basically my favourite website when I remember it exists.

After a couple of hours fiddling and hea scratching, I got micropython flashed to my Huzzah ESP8266. I like this better than Arduino haha

Electronics rambling 

So it's been ages since I did anything electronics-wise. I have a few Pi's lying around, including an A+ for a robot, and an ESP8266 that I also thought I had killed.
Last week I tried to revive the Pi A+, and it turned out to just need a fresh install of RPiOS! Easy lol
Tonight I did the same with the 8266 and it too is alive!
I've never been so happy to have been the PEBKAC!

Now to properly learn python and arduino and maybe make something fun.

Of the firm belief that every 80s and 90s soundchip should be produced indefinitely to support the glory of chiptune.

I'm here for like two weeks. It feels much better than constantly being on Facebook. I'm calmer and more present.

But I really miss my #yarn and #handspinning tribe. I have noone to really share this passion with in real life, and there seems to be like I'm the only mastodon user in this niche.
Maybe I should not care and just create. It just feels a bit lonely like this.

Or maybe I'm just too stupid to navigate the #fediverse. But I'm really not that geeky Person...

Kellogs workers are going on strike. Time to go rampantly horny because the cereal will not be in stock at grocery stores for a while

People making jokes about the Facebook services going down make me sick. Anyone who was using an Oculus headset at the time is currently trapped in VR, and if they die there then they die in real life.

They're doing a test of the fire alarms at work today, which is fine of course. But they chose lunch time to do it, and my dumb arse is sitting right under the damn thing. It's been ten minutes. I'm pretty sure the bell is working! 😅

Uh. Hello, fediverse. I think this is my second attempt at trying Mastodon but last time was ages ago 😅
