Before you put a dozen emojies between words, imagine how hearing the below text could become tiring, even exhausting, and a cognitive drain on screen reader users.

I usually prepare my Freshmaker show sets in advance, to be sure I have enough to fill the hour (and not go over) and not repeat tracks I've played before.

Tonight on @tilderadio, in a Labor Day special, I turn that all upside down. Favorites from the past 8 months (!) of the show, selected live, without a net. Hilarity ensues!

0000 UTC (and stay tuned for @alrs at 0200)

Hmm. Thought I had scheduled a new show, but you're getting a rerun instead. Oh well. I'll do this week's show live next week! The future is tomorrow!

Show thread

Freshmaker jazz show coming up at the top of the hour on . I need to be elsewhere so I won't be on the mic this week, but that just means you get more music and less yak from me. Enjoy!

Acquired a Thinkpad X230 over the weekend and have been hacking on it. I like the size and light weight (lightest Thinkpad in my collection.) Maxed out the RAM and put a decent SSD in it. Also replaced the slow old wifi card with a spare Intel AC card I had lying around, which makes a big difference. Installed Qubes and Heads; cool approach and very secure-feeling, but may be overkill for me. The adventure continues!
