Hi - please consider yourselves informed that @dolldolldoll is now your official "backup admin" if a hit-by-a-bus situation should occur - follow her main at @dolldolldoll if you want!

I've known Ivy for close to two decades now, we've co-sysadmined things previously and I vouch that you can trust her as you trust me.

Ivy will have access to all the backend systems and accounts, not to run things on a daily basis, but to ensure continuity of service if I can't.

Current mood: Johnny Rotten sitting on the stage at the end of the last ever Sex Pistols gig, chanting "NO FUN" into the microphone over and over.

Ticket lodged: "Outlook cannot connect to the Exchange server."

Yes. This is because we don't have one. Working as intended.

Hello, Monday!

If anyone's holding on to some good silverbeet recipes, let's hear them.

Stretching out for her evening lounge after a stressful day of lounging. Lazy bloody cat.

My neighbours were struggling to get on top of their back yard's early spring enthusiasm with some hand tools so I've loaned them my mower and whipper snipper and given them a couple of muffins so I think we're friends now. 😁

Decided it was a good day for so I thought I'd see how my currents sourdough muffin base recipe would go with some chocolate.

Turns out, pretty well! Maybe could have bumped the sugar level up or the cocoa down a touch but I'm probably just overthinking it. The chocolate comes through just fine.

I'm looking to commision a UI designer to help design the 250x122 bitmap interface for my e-ink public transit timer. Send me your rate sheet and let's talk!

Coming in to the home stretch on the current screenplay project. Should have draft 1.5 finished and ready to print for editing by the end of the day.

Any other out there love editing on hard copy. I don't know if it's my proofreader/pre-press or theatre background, but something about having a tactile manuscript and pencil cranks my editorial ruthlessness up to 11.

Moderately bizarre short silent film from 1927 about the Castlecrag Estate and "model suburb" in Sydney. Also features an incomprehensible dance sequence

I am a writer and dilettante, a jack of all trades hoping to master a few before all is said and done.

I'm planning to curate this account/feed towards the arts and media.

Looking to connect with other writers of unusual fiction. My influences include Mark Leyner, Leonora Carrington, Tom Robbins, Donald Barthleme, Hunter S. Thompson, Steven Millhauser, etc.

Hope I don't hurt my Commodore 128 tonight, as I'm going to combine this:

With this:

And plug the resultant wad of wires and EPROMs into the poor thing.

I have a bunch of little mods to do, I guess the key thing will be to do one at a time and test things frequently right? Or maybe just charge ahead boldly without a care ...

Meech recently learned that I don't use the couch during the day and has decided to lay claim to it between the hours of breakfast and dinner o'clock

Hooray, total internet outage here this morning. Plus for some reason my phone auto recharge didn't happen yesterday so it was claiming no connectivity either, which led me to seriously wonder if we'd been hit by a meteor or something overnight.

It wouldn't have surprised anyone, would it?

The Pine Store is down until further notice due to a serious issue. Manjaro CE PinePhone preorders unfortunately must be postponed. More information will be given later.

Dear tech fediverse,

I have been tasked with finding a videoconferencing system that can connect up to four sites across eastern .au. We are primarily on-premises, mixed-operating system infrastructure. Slowest site is 50/20 NBN.

Suggestions (+ or −) welcomed.

I just put a load of laundry in the machine while I still had a couple of days of clean underwear left, is this adulthood at last?

I've been working really hard the past couple of weeks building a new stats system for my web game Improbable Island.

It's a text adventure at, there's a lively roleplaying community, player-owned places (with a programming engine!), hundreds of pages of story and no ads/tracking/nastystuff. We've had problems getting new players 'cause the places we used to advertise are all going offline, so if y'all could help me out with a boost that'd be much appreciated

@screenbeard that's my order from Retroleum that came in today, I put that in about a week before yours didn't i?
