*Blinked out of existence*
be careful where you creep
because it looks like your end might be near,
for two of the enemies you fear,
seem to have mated
and this is what they've created.
In silence we shall forever weep.»

I'm pleased to announce the v1.0.0 release of Hometown, my Mastodon fork! It's up to date with Mastodon v2.9.3, and unique features include:
- Local only posting
- Full support for rendering incoming `Article` posts from federated blogs like Write.As
- "Exclusive" lists that let you follow someone without clogging up your home timeline
For more info, including rationale for each new feature, check out our wiki:
And the release itself is here:
It's time for us to give back -- not just to our community, but to those less privileged.
Read about it in our new blog post: https://www.pine64.org/2019/08/19/its-time-to-start-giving-back/
Some neat things I found and want to play with but don't really have the time
ESP32 universal epaper controller that works with all the waveshare epaper displays and can update the display via web interface running on the board itself. https://www.waveshare.com/e-Paper-ESP32-Driver-Board.htm
3d printed battery holders with built in tension and using only some extra winds of stripped wire from your connecting wires as contacts. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:456900
Awesome looking epaper info display.
The Preserves tutorial I wrote now has its own page that's not just in a misc directory on my own server anymore. Horray, it's part of Preserves now! https://preserves.gitlab.io/preserves/TUTORIAL.html
Tony Garnock-Jones swept in and also improved and corrected a bunch of things.
#BeardGrabber woke up crying again... this time a certain smell and a tight, cramped up stomach made it hard to miss what was bothering him now.
Hopefully that was the last thing to bother him tonight, so that we both can get some uninterrupted sleep...
Time to find a paracetamol to kill this lack-of-sleep-headache, so I hopefully can fall asleep soon...
No, the #UX of adding people to lists is still horrible... Having to search for them, requires me to actually know their name or username, whereas for many I mostly recognise them from their avatars.
Just as I was close to falling asleep myself, #BeardGrabber woke up, crying. Consoling him didn't make him fall back asleep; I was only allowed to hold him against my chest while standing; I wasn't allowed to sit down, even when he would still be in the same position...
So, I quickly changed his diaper, put him in his baby carrier to keep him somewhat quiet, and made him a bottle.
He's back in his bed now, and while he's still tossing a bit, is drifting off.
An interesting (over-) analysis of the lyrics of the Gary Moore / #Nightwish song "Over the hills and far away":
Not sure which explanation I like best: the Bonny & Clyde setup, or the husband finding out about the affair and framing his so-called best friend.
Maybe a suggestion for a new feature: Allow add people to a default list when following them.
As you need to follow accounts to be able to list them, you cannot exclude them from the home timeline.
But the follow feature could add them to a list "default timeline", from which you can remove accounts that you only want to read in other lists.
Then I could either follow you (follow + add to the default list) or list you (follow + add to the selected list) similar to Twitter.
You know how sometimes you waste time doing something you've been wanting to get to and go completely overboard....well, I finally created a website on github pages with jekyll to unify my intermittent desire to blog longer form about things. So I put up a post-game analysis for the current #Scowlathon polls. But tomorrow I'm going to do some proper work...honest.
