Oh great, looks like our home internet connection is down again?
, seriously, fuck you.

Our connection through was so much more stable before you took over their activities.

Oh well, I was supposed to try to sleep anyway.

This is bizarre but true: in older (and by that I mean largely pre-1900) English printed alphabets, the character & was printed at the end, and was memorized as a 27th character.

It was recited in the alphabet as "per se and", meaning "'and' by itself". So the end of the alphabet went "X, Y, Z, and per se and."

The phrase "and per se and" eventually got contracted - and is how we got today's name for the symbol: ampersand.

No, really:

I'm extremely pleased to launch Run Your Own Social: How to run a small social network site for you friends.

This is a guide book to running a small, tight-knit federated social network server. It comes from my year of experience running Friend Camp. It's focused largely on SOCIAL solutions, though it does touch on the technical.

I've tried to keep it technology-neutral, and it should be a pretty easy read for anyone who's been on the fediverse for a while.

Has anybody here used twtxt before? Looks interesting.

Don't recall what kind of it is, but I'm sure @Siiw will know if anyone's interested. Wouldn't surprise me if it was some kind of weed. ;)

Part of me wishes to try out various other flavours of such as and , but I also don't feel like 'migrating' my current account. If I'm gonna migrate, I only want to do it once, and then it's gonna/gotta be to something .

This wouldn't be much of an issue if Mastodon supported . So perhaps I should look into a based solution like instead...

So cute when our almost 11 months old puts the lid back on his own milk bottle. 😍

Anyway, now to get fully awake myself for another day as stay-at-home dad. πŸ’šπŸ’œ

KATAGELOPHOBIA n. The fear of being ridiculed or embarrassed.

*Blinked out of existence*

Β«Dear Doctor,
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.Β»

I enjoyed a nice long late evening as part of my , while playing a mix of , and . I mostly played the latter, as I'm not yet max level in that.

I ended up spending too much time outside perhaps, so it will probably be a bit tough to wake up in time, especially as I don't quite feel sleepy yet.

Definitely could use some more , or push myself more, but something is better than nothing.

I wish would either include music/sfx/speech volume *sliders* rather than just toggles in their () apps, or if app-specific sliders for them would be included/implemented on the level.

I would like to be able to listen to my music, and hear speech/sound effects of the I'm playing, but I want to be able to set the game's audio to a far lower level than my music player's.
