I love the high quality, thought-provoking posts in the Standup subreddit.

Thanks for that reassurance, Microsoft. Please feel free to keep writing software for my PC.

Last year, when we said goodbye our 15-year-old cat, I swore I wasn't going to have another pet ... then this young man literally walked in off the street and made himself at home.

He has a bell on his collar but it only rings when he chooses. He can move silently through the house, then his bell will give a little ring when he's ready. You turn around and there he is looking at you.

He has issues. He's seen some shit, but that doesn't matter. He is a Good Boy. His name is Meech.

Then some days you're just exhausted and feeling like crap but suddenly realise there's nothing stopping you from just making a margarita and saying "fuck it" to everything.

I moved all our tetras to their new tank, and I was worried they might be a bit stressed about the big change. I think this will help.

Just read an article where the author referred to their ~400 hours of playing TF2 as "a lot".

Please enjoy this video of a Mystery named Dingus poking his little siphon up out of the water to take a breath!

I got a sticker to wear with my name on it! It must be time to share my VALUABLE OPINIONS with a group of my demographic peers.

Absolute carnage in the last night as the storm knocked all but two buds off of the blood orange tree. 😢

I fucking love swearing. I also love Profanity.

Profanity is a nice little chat client that just drifts into the background with all the other terminals I have open during the day though, and so much less intrusive than alternatives. I usually keep one instance open in a screen session on a machine somewhere I can easily SSH to. It's very handy.

Bombay Sapphire, with fresh squeezed grapefruit from my garden and a couple of random mandarins thrown in for colour. Could use a tiny dash of bitters I think, but I'm not getting up and going back inside.

Bean update: getting their bean on. My improvised wicking bed is shockingly working well. Bit over 30 degrees today and the soil is still nice and moist all through.

Pi and the goth flamingo that watches over my silverbeet crop would like to wish you a happy Halloween.

Just for fun, here's a photo from tonight, and one from 2012! It's just like being there!
