@northernlights pets are family and I’m sorry to hear yours is one smaller. :(

Working late tonight, will probably be unable to do a live Giant Steps show. Please enjoy whatever repeat the archive robut serves up, in that case.

@SDF I remember that mouse, and that pad, and that OS. Had Sun gear on my desk from mid-late 90s until 2005 or so. 👍🏻

2021 was notable for me for a lot of reasons, but particularly for reconnecting with @SDF and discovering the @tildeverse - a return to the way the net used to be in the old days, fun and funky. If you're reading this, you were likely a part of it being so much fun. Thanks, and see you in 2022!

Yes, this is an arbitrary day that someone decided marks the end of one calendar year and the beginning of the other. Yes, choosing the solstice would be another option. Yes, not celebrating such a thing at all is another option.

No, you don't need to be a dick to people who say "Happy New Year!" today or tomorrow. Let people enjoy things.

Surprise! Tonight's Giant Steps show on at 0000 UTC will be live (my other commitment got canceled because, you know, virus stuff.)

Tonight: fusion. Yes, really. Been wanting to do a fusion show for a while, have had the playlist sitting around, and since I'm putting this show together on less than an hour's notice: fusion! (Back to my usual stylings for the next show.)

Merry Christmas, if that’s something you’re into. Happy Saturday, if not.

Dammit. Real life interfered with my plans for tonight's show. Sorry.

The final live Giant Steps show of 2021 happens Friday at 0000 UTC on , featuring (mostly) jazz music about Christmas, winter, and similar things. Egg nog not included, I can't stand the stuff. (I mostly can't stand Christmas either, but some of the music isn't bad.)

Next Friday's show will be a repeat.

@guofu you came within a few blocks of my house! I wasn’t home, though. :)

Sorry, was unable to do the @tilderadio show tonight due to technical difficulties. Will try again next week!

Back live on at 0000 UTC with the Giant Steps jazz show. Been a few weeks since I was live, so I’m looking forward to it.

Perhaps it’s not such a great idea to have so much virtual infrastructure in one region of one company’s cloud.

(Disclosure: my $WORK has a lot of stuff deployed into said region of said cloud)

griping about the post office 

Unless the USPS has a time machine, a package isn't going to be delivered "on time" tonight to me in DC if the package hasn't left Massachusetts yet since being shipped a week ago.

I really wish USPS didn't lie to me about whether and when packages are delivered.

(And, when USPS does choose to deliver it, they'll almost certainly deliver it to the wrong house anyway.)

Started about ten minutes late because, as the kids say, "reasons", but am now on @tilderadio live without a net (or a playlist)

Unfortunately I won't be able to do the show live tonight, but I have queued up a selection of awesome jazz tracks for at 0000 UTC. Please enjoy.

Returning to @tilderadio tonight at 0000 UTC. 4 listeners can't be wrong!

No Giant Steps show this week due to the Thanksgiving holiday. Starting next week, back to two shows:

- Untitled Show (eclectic) on @tilderadio Tuesdays 0000 UTC
- Giant Steps (jazz) on Fridays 0000 UTC

Thank you as always for listening!

Will be returning to @tilderadio in my former time slot (Tuesdays 0000 UTC) after Thanksgiving. Format and genres to be decided. But I missed you folks more than I thought. Cheers.

(Continuing with the jazz show on Fridays at 0000 UTC)
