The solar flare just hit, all your digital lifetime's work is gone.

mastodon is a federated decentralized homogenous stream-of-consciousness posting platform where a toot can say "ass pee" and be mutated into countless formations over a 24 hour period, during which a debate about the effectiveness of FOSS can simmer in the replies, before being discovered on an instance's "featured" page, followed by a conan the barbarian quote bot with 7 followers, whose last post was november of 2018

Shout out to the people who used to own our house. 2.5 years after moving out, and they're *still* having packages delivered here.

Relieved that Dixie Mech is rebranding to Omnitype.

They make great stuff and I've avoided recommending their products because of the "Dixie" brand.

That thing where your wife gets obsessed with a living room in "Emanuelle in America" and scours the internet for the coffee table, fig painting, and curtains.

According to , I managed to finish 26 books in November. 😅

Guess that's what happens when you replace social media in the evenings with reading and (some, but not all) podcasts with audiobooks...

Just closed both of the plugins that I had up in the repo and set their GitHub pages to archived.

It was either that or let people install software that had, due to service closures and core improvements, become effectively useless.

End of an era, or something.

Free dumb idea: Pine, but rewritten in Rust.

Listening to Thievery Corporation's "The Mirror Conspiracy" because apparently I want to pretend that I'm working in a W lobby circa 2002.

Me, switching back to my 60% keyboard after spending the past month on a tenkeyless:

Recompiling ffmpeg with AAC support on my personal machine so I can use m4b-tool to make iPhone friendly audiobooks out of Doctorow's "Little Brother" Kickstarter rewards.

That thing where your wife is walking on the treadmill to the beat of the song you're listening to on your headphones and you can kind of hear her doing it.

My betting strategy:

1. Always bet on the Tacos.
2. Always bet against the Firefighters.
3. Always bet on the Shoe Thieves.
4. Bet on the underdogs for every other game.
5. Max your bets (with Snake Oil) as much as you can.
6. ...
7. Profit!

Stay 72° and Infinite, my friends.
