The more I realize that online environments less hostile than Tumblr, twitter and facebook are possible,

Before the rise of industry, it was normal for people to sleep in two phases each night.

Modern schedules don't really let us do that. Perhaps we should think about changing that.

it's also my first time making a quiche ever.
fingers crossed.

A couple things I saw and thought "Mastodon will love this":

- Alias, a 3D-printed "parasite" that sits on top of your Amazon Echo or Google Home, feeding white noise into its mic until you say the wake word:

- The adminbook, a wonderfully ugly design for the ideal sysadmin notebook:


I think we are all eagerly awaiting the day that solarpunk goes mainstream with a best selling book by Chuck Tingle.

Remember when it was the '00s and "burning CDs" was a thing and you sometimes needed third-party software for that and one of them was called "Nero Burning ROM"

I literally *just* got that pun

A thicc guard stands before two doors. “One of these hips lies and the other tells the truth.”
