It’s far easier to continue believing lies than accept that you’ve been lied to & are still being lied to. Irrational fear & cognitive dissonance are powerful forces. But courage & love conquer all. Step back, pause, open your heart & mind: think critically. Humanity will prevail. -- Dr. Kulvinder Kaur

Could be worth trying if your favourite accounts are 8-16hrs away, or if you detect spotty synchronization issues between instances.

Had a sequence of dreams featuring my late husband and his still-livibg parents. Will make a phlog post for amateur dream analysts.

I do ask you who reads this what comes to mind when a Sebastian Cabot (1960s-1970s, mostly TV) actor type sonorously reminds to "follow the policy at all times" in a computer classroom when one is separated by 6 ft from one's working mate, and given a memo pad (no computer) for self-occupation

I saw the first 2022 "Kids in the Hall" episode, the 90-minute episode. Better than the original, imho, so many quotable lines

if anyone were reading this without knowing much of me, yes the film I identified is a , the actor is Richard Arlen, his leading belle is Mary Brian, and the Western silent film is "Under the Tonto Rim", based on a novel.

I identified the actor, and consequently his leading lady and the film, in an "Unidentified Film Fragments" YouTube reel.

"A Step Farther Out" today was conducted under challenging circumstances : I was exiled from my normal workspace by a Power Outrage.

I didn't quite cover all the things I meant to, but I think I did OK.

When I search for "how to beat the blahs", I don't welcome finding a high-ranked search result leading to a 404 Page Not Found
All this surveillance and tracking, and webspiders, is it not possible to declutter a search engine result set?
Already talked with friends, got some bakery treats and a special sandwich, listened to music, read fiction, did laundry, made a comfort food stew and forgiving stupendously pillowy rolls, but still .

This is me on my own instance now. I use lots of #tech stuff - #yunohost #linux #lineageos. I will be a #pinephone user soon. I'm a father. I love #coffee. I live in #taiwan.

Hi, I'm Scott, or Fivetoedsloth, or sdl. I've been here for a few years but never really used the account. I suppose its as good a time as any to get started. I'm interested in computing, bicycles, motorcycles, photography with film and chemicals and darkrooms (oh my). There's a turntable and a pile of vinyl to my right. A tuba to my left.

Here's the list of Novels I'm selling.
Wonder if this announcement would be welcome on FORSALE topic on the BBS, or BOOKS

A school bully must be running the Telco customer service, for me to be their receptacle for empty promises

Brain drizzling ideas for new WiFi password. Late husband chose the old one. Might go with EFF dice passphrase or nonEnglish-language phrase

I sleep throughout the night if I perform an Eight Pieces of Brocade series of stretches and motions the night before. I can't rely on regular full eight hours sleep without stretching back, legs, arms, neck

Hi, I'm Mark. Profesionally, I'm a long-time UNIX/Linux admin and developer, currently in the DevOps space. Unprofesionally, I'm a widower and stepfather, I DJ on #tilderadio and #aNONradio, I hang out on pubnixes, I watch soccer and hockey, and I generally don't take any of this too seriously.

You are welcome to follow me; you don't need my permission. I can't promise you quality content, discourse, or anything else if you do, though.

It is my intention to respect all who don't demonstrate that they are unworthy of such respect. If I get something wrong when talking to you, please don't assume bad faith. Let me know and I'll try to do better. Thanks.


On , I learned that the one where my dad is driving our family out of the city because asteroids are plummeting is not unique nor exclusive. But maybe the part where my mom and brother disappear from the car's backseat mid-escape is?

My US phone was called nine times by a gung-ho and clueless robocall outfit, probably in south Asia
"There must be some phone number that they will pick up for. We will call every half-hour if we need to."

Landline restored by telecom: Connection to internet lost immediately. Makes me question why I left the US
