I live in Vermont (US) with my spouse (20yrs), our rescue dog (Leo) & 7 sheep (Navajo-Churro, Shetland, Finn, FinnXShetland).

I am currently semi-retired, but spent most of my professional career filled with imposter syndrome building and managing websites. Jack of all trades, master of none.

My hobbies include , , making & live-streaming the view of our farm*; & .

Sometimes at the driving range, I turn around, yell “aft!” and hit into the parking lot just to mix things up.

Hey folks working on #Fediverse projects like #Mastodon, #PixelFed, #WriteAs: I'm a writer who's spent 20 years writing blog posts, documentation, product copy, social media, and a little UX writing for a variety of orgs large and small.

Recent work involves the Bear notes app, previously: 1Password.

I can't contribute as a dev, but I can definitely help write, edit, or just polish your user-facing comms.

Can anyone help get this in front of relevant folks? Or point out how I can reach them?

Hmmm, when I try to post photos with captions on (pixelfed.social) using Masto the captions don’t stay when I click “done” but they apparently do when I use the same app to post to my main instance here.

Long shot here, I know, but: Anyone else on #AppleMusic and have playlists of chill instrumental music not necessarily based in hip-hop? I’ve found tons of chill-hop and lo-fi playlists and I dig it, but I’m curious about other genres, too. Is this even a thing?

Use case is background music for work and chill, but not going to sleep. I don’t want to get hyped and I want to avoid lyrics so I can concentrate.

Oh, and just in case: no country plz. 😄

Does anyone know how I can get an alert when my YouTube livestream has stopped?

Currently it sends me an email when I start it, but that's useless as I know I started the livestream; I need to know when it stops!

Boosts welcome.

“Exquisite Agony” is my new band name.

Alcohol - beer 

An amazing evening to be out on the porch with a cold #Craftbian beer after a day in the garden. Cheers.

Had a good chat with the folks at tina.io about their CMS this afternoon and I’ll be giving it a fresh look.

Uh I just got DMed by the COO of Tumblr asking about hiring contractors to make us fully #indieweb compliant, and possibly even #fediverse integration. Anyone out there looking for work?

My ten year old daughter was a bit distraught that she had lost her #Fitbit #Ace kids watch at school. (The main piece had fallen out of the band).

She’s a pretty responsible kid, and we’re looking at some alternatives that she can use to track her steps. Preferably a solid piece watch as opposed to one having a removable piece.

Suggestions are welcome!

Crypto, when it comes down to it, relies on greater fools. As assets without any intrinsic value, the way to make money from crypto is to find a greater fool who will buy your assets from you at a higher price.

Woww, if you ever use #Skillshare, make sure you watch your cc bill closely or set a calendar reminder for the renewal date. Just found an €80 charge that they won't refund because they charged me more than 7 days ago. No they do not send email reminders.

This was a very localized outage. Sarah saw a pole down on her way to work.

We have solar panels but are grid-tied. We hope to get battery storage soon. We are on a waiting list.

Too nice a day here to not take advantage of it and get some yard work done. Only 60ºF (~16C) and sunny. Time to toil without overheating. Future me will thank me... he better.
