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.

@dsalo I am proud to call Jessamyn a friend and a neighbor. She is awesome. Been trying to get her on Mastodon too!

Should libraries run search engines? It seems that the original point of a library was to organize human knowledge and culture for the public benefit. The benefit has been great, but libraries aren't the main tool for finding information now. Search engines are. The notion that a library needs to be for books only is an arbitrary limitation. This oversight allowed corporations to move into that traditionally non-profit role, and I'm not convinced they've done a particularly good job.

One of the things I miss about the Google plus interface was how easy it was to search for/find & create small communities of interest.

I wish there was a way to do that more simply in the fediverse.

Would love to find more #writers, especially #specfic (#sciencefiction & #fantasy) writers.

There are some hashtags that can help us find one another - #amwriting & #amwritingscifi for example, but I don't thing many folks use them.

So, where are my spec fic writers at???

(Boosts welcome!)

@gamehawk no shame in reading YA. I recently read Pratchet’s “Nation” and loved it so much.

@JonathanGerlach I don’t think so. It’s a different amperage I think?

We are on wait list to have power walls installed.

Thankfully these outages are rare.

Had to gracefully shut down the UPS in my office. The constant beeping was making Leo shake. Poor puppah.

No we are having a cuddle on the couch to recover.

Very glad the coffee maker had completed its task before the power went out. ☕️

Also happy there was still enough water in pipes to wash my hands.

Things that make power outages a challenge here: wife’s shower was interrupted and she still had conditioner in; I had to manually open the garage door; can’t flush the toilet. 😞

@mike for me that is just barely. I have poor cellular here. I just happened to be upstairs by a window 😜

@ramsey afaik, "meatballs menu" is indeed a commonly used name for that icon, together with some other food-related menu names :)

@robin f*ck man shitty and their murderous hateful city state ownership.

@GeoffWozniak The metal ones. I never saw the glass ones in our McDs

@GeoffWozniak those ash trays always made great pinch trays for rolling joints.
