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.)

On one hand, I *know* I started the Roomba and then took a shower.

On the other hand, when a loud whirring noise approaches and there's a repeated thumping on the door, I may inconveniently forget that fact.

I woke up 11 hours ago, after the same amount of sleep. How am I already tired?

To sleep, perchance to wake up in under 4 hours.

Apparently the purple I picked for part of my Halloween lights includes enough ultraviolet to make my dish soap fluoresce. Adds to the mood every time I see it out of the corner of my eye.

In retrospect, I was particularly bad at estimating time today, of basically all sorts.

I was trying to untie my shoes. How did I accidentally get a pretty decent bowline in them instead?

Huh, new feature on the Internet Archive: go to any audio item and click the Llama in the upper-right(ish) corner. Depending on your history with computers, you may be able to guess what it does.

Things I learned today: just because your printer can print from a roll, don't assume it can print the whole roll in one go (even assuming ink holds out). Turns out mine's limited at 200", for some reason. Also, tension is important and very finicky when rolling craft paper onto a separate roll.

This does make printing 120' of walkways a little more difficult. (Made it work, will just have to overlap things a bit.)

Really happy with how this turned out. (Cambridge across the Charles River at sunset.)
