It's amazing how fast you can get back up to speed on something when you have an internet and search engines and emulators to test things in.

Having to reboot your development environment to try something out was a real pain in the 80s. You kids don't know how good you've got it ...

I'd like to point out here that if you're not familiar with the restrictions of the that stripe across the middle probably doesn't look like much of an achievement. Trust me, it's cool.

Mast is a beautifully created app that doesn’t always do what its supposed to, WHEN it’s supposed to so you just end up fumbling toots out that you didn’t mean to send yet or block random people cuz you kept pressing things for SOMETHING to happen.

So if anyone knows of a Mastodon app that works (and doesn’t look like vomit) please let me know. But I can’t keep bitching about this app any patience has run out. The developer isn’t of much help either...I want a refund 🤲🏾💰

I put it off for ages though because my connection date was always just around the corner. It's been pushed back by a year, twice.

Right now it's doing fine out of the box and has solved all my immediate issues, but I made sure I got something on the supported hardware list.

I finally got utterly sick of it and put my dismal Optus cable modem into bridge mode and bought a new router for the house.

My SSH connections no longer randomly terminate if I stop using them for more than 30 seconds. I should have done this ages ago.

One of our venues is starting to look like a venue! One left to go. Three more days until Festival starts.

Also I leaned today that although I own a great many extension cords, I do not apparently own enough.

If anyone's been holding back the secret of how to be in 2 places at the same time, now would be a great time for you to fill me in. Thanks.

I'm utterly exhausted because last night I dreamed I dropped a tiny screw on a huge piece of carpet and I spent the entire night running my hands back and forth over the floor trying to feel where it was.

I've been listening in on CB radio a bit lately as background sound while working. It's like if there was an internet comments section just for truck drivers.

Given this old post has just resurfaced for some reason I'm going to take this opportunity to tag @gths to check out the cool Winamp skin I'm using on XMMS there. :awesome:

Six years ago today, we visited Stonehenge in the fog, saw the white horse, and ventured inside the West Kennet Long Barrow, before continuing on to Heathrow to return the car, and then to Hammersmith to stay for another couple of days before flying home. #photo #photography #travel #UK

I'm currently at the Uradlia Hotel in the Adelaide hills for the first time in 20 years. They have 10 locally brewed beers on tap. I'm working my way from left to right.

Just realised today that Airbnb censors the word "Google" when it appears in review text.

This is a good thing that some good people have been working to get off the ground for a while now. I'm glad it's finally live.

There are tradies going in and out the house next door constantly and there's a constant supply of people knocking on doors and yelling "hello? are you there?" and it's echoing through my house.

It's not especially irritating except that I'm expecting a delivery today ...

21st century life: feeling a buzz on your wrist and seeing that your watch has just decided to reboot for no reason then looking for your telephone so you can see what time it is.

A study shows that 3 people in a conference room can result in a CO2 levels that can impair cognitive functioning in just 2 hours.

Any decisions made at the end of the meeting are made in a mentally deficient state.
