@karloskar you're literally at the top of the fediverse.social pixelfed listing. When can I sign up to your instance?

Batteries are all good. It’s supposed to fade from colour to colour. I’m guessing a component or connection is busted somewhere. Might be a lost cause. All the power connections look fine.

Undertaking operation fix night light. No idea where to start tho.

Anyway, one thing I have settled on is that I’m going to avoid making complaints here, both specific ones and generalised complaints about the state of things. There’s enough of that.

So today I’m headed back to my Grandpa’s workshop for the first time in a looong time. Really looking forward to it.

I’m still struggling a little with what to make this place. I’m really resisting the urge to essentially replicate my Twitter network (at least in tone/topic if not actual people). I want the fediverse experience to be different. But how? And because of my hesitation the experience is current anaemic and therefore mostly uninteresting.

The first day back from leave is always spent unsubscribing from email lists and honing my email filters.

Got some sweet new indoor plants today. Also put in some balcony flowers for spring and planted out herb and tomato pots for the first time in three years. 🤞🌱🌺🌼🍅

My google alert for "ministerial discretion" is getting a fair workout this month.

Reminder, Google AMP is bad for the open web. It was bad at inception and it just gets worse.

Ugh. Google AMP is now “improving the performance of mobile content and advertising” by jamming ads *into* photos.

Going back for some more Gavin and Stacey. I'm into the third season and already disappointed it's almost over.

I love* how much data the writers of this report on data misuse and trust ask for before they'll let you see the report.

y'all, please send virtual hugs to the Brazilian people tonight, who lost their entire national museum in a catastrophic fire. thousands of artifacts that date back thousands of years were lost, as well invaluable artworks from many cultures. this is a terrible loss for humanity.

as an anthropologist, artist and a lover of brazilian culture, and as someone who studied tupi, this loss is staggering and tremendous.
