Is it time again?

Hi, I'm Geoff (he/him). I've been here for a little more than a year, I think.

I write for a living, at a certain large charity in Toronto. I'm in accessible publishing, but I really only have a toe in .

I take pictures. Some of the pictures are of cats. flickr.com/photos/giltay/album

Preparing for my first instance hop. This may be a rough ride.

Currently drinking Mare di Sirena pinot grigio. Quite nice, and cheap, too. Mermay, I guess?

Got a break in the clouds that returned mere seconds after totality began. Got some pics.

NASA will be live steaming the eclipse tonight for those of us that are socked in the clouds and fog. Check it out below. twitter.com/NASASun/status/152

The weather needs to cut me a break. I've already missed the aurora earlier this year because of clouds, now an eclipse? Warbling to the tune of Joni Mitchell's hit, "Now they only block the night/No moon eclipse, this fuckin' bites."

#Talkback users, what keyboard apps are you using on #Android? I don't like GBoard, and Swiftkey is only slightly better (slightly faster and doesn't require double taps for switching to symbols or sending a message). I liked the Samsung keyboard on my old phone, but I guess that is Samsung-restricted, because searching Aurora Store I only get clones. Anything else that works?
I'd love to use AnySoftKeyboard or another thing on F-Droid, but last time I checked, the keys weren't read at all.
Yes, I know the braille keyboard exists. Not really my thing unfortunately, although perhaps I should try practicing some.

Okay, I'm curious, when did you guys first hear about/join Linux? Please boost for a wider data pool. :boost_love:

We used to have Mamie Sypert Burns, Johann III. Kämmerer von Worms, and George More. Now we have no burns, no worms, and no more!

just a reminder, if you're facing a mirror, it's not flipping you left to right. it's actually flipping you front to back.

Someone carved the alphabet into a tree and let it deform for five years and made a font out of it: bjoernkarmann.dk/occlusion-gro

It's Bruce Hodak, who I saw on stage many years ago in his one-person show Assassinating Thompson which was pretty good. Congrats to him.

Wait, they actually cast a blind guy to play the blind guy?
