I missed out on last time, so:

I'm a person. I think people and communities and subcultures are pretty interesting. Sometimes I try to archive these things, sometimes I just idly find them fascinating.

I appreciate things that are {open source, secure, well-designed}, most of the people I've met here, and @srn ​in particular.

I like to think I'm trustworthy and available. Feel free to reach out even if I don't know you.

(A few thousand more words available via my profile.)

@bea I don't know if a thundering herd of "welcome back"s is welcome or not. But. It's nice to see you around. Hope you're doing well. :blobpats:

Resolution for the rest of the night: fewer takes, more sleeping. 'night, folks.

I sung my song to Mr. Jimmy
Yeah, and he said one word to me, and that was " :blobpats: "

*jots "Sweet Lullaby" on a piece of paper, slides it face-down over to @djsundog in the lab*

Request: I'm looking for very tiny (~0.5mm), colored, non-reflective flakes. Think "nail polish glitter, if it wasn't shimmery". Is there a term for this?

(Closest I've come is "cosmetic glitter", but almost all of that is reflective. Even as a nail polish making supply, I'm having trouble finding any that aren't metallic.)

Years ago, I used to like staying up past when anybody else in my house was awake, listening to music and getting things done. And now, my feeds are quiet, I'm listening to Juno Reactor, and thinking the same set of conditions is still pretty great.

Recurring thoughts of starting a café. 🤔​💭

It occurred to me that on weekdays, I may spend more time wearing slippers than shoes, and this amuses me.

It's a very "I'm going to sleep early" kind of day. 'night, Mastodon folks.


'morning, Mastodon. Have a relaxing Thursday! :blobpats:

Help, my floor is filling up with Pokémon posters.

(lightly overlapping posters showing the original 151 Pokémon from four generations of game art)

2/3rds of a loaf of bread is a better brunch than it has any right to be.

More colors and making things. Thanks.

Is there a good place I can host ~20 gigabytes of extremely static content? I have it on this same host, but it's somehow sustaining something like 10mbps average and the CPU overhead is surprisingly nontrivial. (The site hosts CC-licensed copies of a set of textbooks.) Don't want CloudFlare for a few reasons.
