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.

My new neighbours had some tradies over this morning, bright and early, ripping some cladding off. Not a huge amount of noise, wasn't an issue, I was already up.

As soon as they were done, said neighbour brought me a bottle of wine and apologised for the noise.

I think we're going to get along fine. I took the opportunity to ask if they had any allergies or intolerances, food-wise. The answer was "no" so I hope they like finding bread rolls on their doorstep. 😁

I'm not a fan of "how to do X" videos as a genre, preferring clear written instructions and a photo or two, but I'll make an exception for this guy's delivery of "How to siphon (without sucking a hose)".

I think I can consider this batch a success. Everything turned out very well except the definition of the lines. I almost skipped that anyway, but I do like having some kind of pattern on top.

i just joined #mastodon and noticed it's tough to find active people to follow. #trunk communitywiki.org/trunk has built themed lists, which are a great start, but many accounts are stale and there's a lot of clicking to navigate online.

so last night i played with #trunk's API and packaged up some filtering and automation into #python/#selenium so all i have to do is 1 click confirm. i put it on gh this morning for other #newbies like me. github.com/lots-of-things/pytr

I just made my first using a tangzhong and I can't believe it took me so long, what a difference. Some pretty good hot cross bun pictures are going to be coming shortly.

If I can manage to say "Heck it" instead of "fuckbadgers" around your kid, you can manage to say "Ten mil" rather than "Just a hair over twenty-five sixty-fourths of an inch" around mine THANK YOU VERY MUCH END RANT SEND TOOT

"Wow everything is just feeling so tedious this morning, must be nearly lunchtime, I could use a break."

*Checks time, it is 10:30am*

Oh god no please help me.

Today is apparently National Beer Day! Happy NBD, enjoy! 🍻

I'm a responsible adult and if I want to have a second whiskey sour at 11pm on a work night I damn well will.

Since my morning commute became clicking on a VPN menu, things have really loosened up around here.

Today is my first day on Mastodon. I’m a music creator, and I use a variety of digital audio workstations to make music. I make music that is upbeat. #introductions

#nowplaying Philip Glass’ Koyaanisqatsi and Naqoyqatsi film-symphonies.
Written 20 years apart in 1982 and 2002 respectively, these film soundtracks are illustrative of the development of Glass’ style over the years, and his approach to creating a specific identity for a work while retaining his stylistic practice.

Crimson Rosellas in the back yard today. Some of the longer grass is seeding, and they always like a bit of fresh grass seed.

Yesterday while I was in the office, I restarted someone's machine that wasn't responding remotely. Looked like it got hung up for some reason on a prompt for user input while updating something.

Me: "I'll be on site for a few more hours if you want to trigger that update and see if it gets stuck again."

Them Yesterday: "I can access it now, it's OK."

Them Today: "It's done the same thing again, can you restart it?"
