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.

I ordered a hot-air soldering station last week, because I was just too damn tired of working with components I could see clearly and touch with physical objects.

One of my last favourite things in the world is having to get things done when I'm not sure how much they'll cost until afterwards. Getting the car serviced is a great example. I can never even bring myself to book it until I've got about three times my most pessimistic estimate available.

Had to do that today. At least it's over now, and although it cost about exactly my most pessimistic estimate, it was definitely not three times that.

Because every goddamn podcast only has iTunes links on their page.

Or I could just do like Robin Rendle and say fuck it to AMP:

"Here’s my hot take on this: fuck the algorithm, fuck the impressions, and fuck the king. I would rather trade those benefits and burn my website to the ground than be under the boot and heel and of some giant, uncaring corporation."

There's someone's pet turtle in a cardboard box by the dumpster what the fuck do I do?

Boosts and answers wanted...

I hope it turns out that the Matrix 4 reveals that the John Wick universe is just another Matrix simulation and they reboot it so Keanu gets his dog back and everyone lives happily ever after.

FFS mate if my label is sticking up out of the back of my jumper, I'm ok with you maybe telling me about it but DON'T FUCKING REACH OUT AND TUCK IT BACK IN FOR ME. We do not have that kind of relationship.

I require all the friends please. You will receive many gifts of dubious value from me. This is not a cult. You can quit at any time.

My office is across the street from the back door of the Supreme Court. Goodbye, George.

No, sorry, I can't come in to work today. The aquarium store just delivered a box of new friends and I need to spend three hours watching a snail crawl over a rock. Yes, again.

Just spent a stupidly long time trying to figure out why my old Raspberry Pi wouldn't boot when it turned out my HDMI cable was fucked. I am a skilled IT professional.

Oh my god - Ishkur's Guide to Electronic Music is still about (back? updated?), and is no longer a Flash app!

I spent a stupid amount of time exploring this back in the dark times of the early 2000s.
