I was informed by a friend on Facebook that the book I just finished, Flatland, is available as a movie on YouTube. And it's trippy.[...]

I've been very happy hosting my blog on a WordPress Droplet on Digital Ocean since April. I'd like to move The Watercolor Gallery now. Does anyone know if I should use the same Droplet or better to create a new one?[...]

These new ActivityPub features from look great. I'd love to get compatible with Mastodon somehow.[...]

Disabled my Dell XPS 13" touchscreen. I never use it and I was sick of the spurious inputs from picking it up, moving the display, or brushing off some dust.[...]
