I volunteer with a group called Virtually Connecting that organizes virtual conversations with people at conferences, to link them with people who can’t attend. We have a bunch of conferences in April, including one more session for Creative Commons Global Summit Sunday April 15 3:45pm eastern time (Toronto, Ontario, Canada). See here for that event and see website for other events coming up! https://virtuallyconnecting.org/blog/2018/04/07/vconnecting-at-ccsummit-in-toronto/
We're working hard to pay for Sarah's computer, & all sales go directly to support two disabled artists & our art! To go with this exclusive masto-first reveal, the first seven friends to order will receive an exclusive free gift–a second, never-ever-for-sale companion A3 poster print!
anyone have a good CV template? I've been using the same look for a couple years and I feel like I should update.
Man, I glad I got this off my chest: I've really been disturbed about how the Facebook/Cambridge Analytica debate has led to Facebook taking *more* control of its users' personal data, not less.
Impatiently waiting for the first tulips from our garden to bloom. Weather has been wet and grey and blah so I’m excited to see some more flowers come out.
May or may not have just ordered some more retro cartoons... okay so I totally did.
Any Pirates of Dark Water fans out there?
Been going through my old art files trying to get/stay motivated about making new art, esp. new digital art because I've barely touched my tablet in the last year. Sometimes depression makes me think I can't do anything worth a damn; have to make an effort to remind myself I actually can.
So here's one that never fails to make me smile. Especially the kid standing up with the sword 😌
Went bowling today with my family for the first time in years. Discovered that the heavy balls hurt my hand & wrist too much (I am pretty sure I have osteoarthritis there). Next time we try 5-pin instead—much smaller balls!

I've thought recently that we should maybe have a #mastoadmin buddy system where we keep an eye on each other's instances and commit to absorbing/taking over if disaster strikes out of the blue.
I was thinking more along the lines of your admin getting hit by a bus and having a path to passing on some SSH keys or password database in case of emergency than just quitting though, but same thing from the user perspective I guess.
Chinwag will get a disaster plan established ASAP.
Because I know you're just dying to know what dish soap looks like when it freezes, here ya go.
My partner and son went camping this weekend and the dish soap was still partially frozen when they got home (yes, it was very, very cold camping). This soap *used* to be translucent!
