Two great things about RSS readers:

1) Disconnects you from The Algorithm.

2) No comment thread arblegarble.

What you see isn't moderated by advertiser revenue, platform bias, or user outrage.

Installing the requirements for this tool through `pip3` is _still going_. I'm in no hurry, but DAMN...

Y'all... I had *no* idea how long it'd take to install TensorFlow on my personal machine.

Installing TensorFlow so I can (attempt to) text-to-speech a few EPUBs that I haven't gotten around to reading yet and aren't available as audiobooks. 🀞🏻

The podcast I do with some of my friends (WPwatercooler) recently spun up a Discord where we can hang out and chat.

Even if you don't listen to the show, it's a good place with nice people β€” but it'd be a whole lot nicer if you were there... πŸ˜‰

Also, I probably need to stop using Reading List in Safari like bookmarks. 😬

Did a little digital spring cleaning this week and took one of my machine's `~/Downloads/` folder from 884 files and folders to 3. 🧹

Currently fighting a losing war with a gopher in our yard.

My current vibe is rolling up to the grocery store curbside pickup area cranking Death Grips.

My Aether keycaps showed up last month, and my bobagums (62g) got here last week. Now, all I need is my Rama Kara to show up and I can get to work building my next keeb.

Feeling pretty good about springing forward this weekend.

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
