I grew up reading books, and books allowed me access to imagined and faraway lands, and all the ideas that came with them. Meeting writers from faraway lands brings it all back home again.

Spent the evening among writers and scribes and now I am in awe of language and culture.

And even then, I'm not even sure I have what I want. 🙃

Getting somewhere with this photo projects. 2 years of photos, taken months to sort through and whittle down. Now forcing myself to curate even harder, get some structure and narrative, and let go of a LOT.

Stories are all about finding a thread and sacrificing irrelevance.

But the more you cut, the more powerful your story is.

Trying out staying away from work BEFORE being obviously ill. Feels like that's a more efficient way of doing things - isolate the infectious early on. Wonder if any companies have a policy of 'early' sick days.

Does anyone have a link to a matrix/summary of ostatus/activitypub compatibility for Pleroma/Mastodon/GS and their versions/plugins? I feel like I desperately need a grid.

Definitely feeling the split in the at the moment. Gone back to separate apps for my Mastodon account vs my Loadaverage (gunsocial) one.

Bad move, Fediverse. Complexity will put off newcomers, raises a big old barrier to entry.

Think I'll post a thought about reflections, reality, and reactions later on.

frosty morning
some half-eaten apples
still in the tree

a cuckoo calls
your warm breath
at the front door

First draft of a brief 'What is ?' page.

Does it need any more than that?

really wanted to get a a hamster with his birthday money, so we now have 2 of the tiny critters. They run so fast. And makes a change from pokemon and lego.

Sunday morning and thinking about book distribution again. looks nice but is a bit unpolished in places. LibraryThing is complete, but overwhelming. BookMooch looks intriguing. BookCrossing is classic.

How to use all of them, without going mad?

Grey skies continuing on the radar - might start cutting back network and Bluetooth usage to try to ride it out a bit. life.

Picked up Animal Crossing for the DS on the cheap today, but feel really bad about killing off someone else's old village.
Should I...

@vicorva Sorry, just voted in a really old poll as I was going through emails :) Ignore me, and thanks for posting the ebooks!

Suddenly it's hail season. Each cold particle crunching under my foot reminds me of stratospheric Arctic switches, polar winds. Probably birds floating back up there.

Maybe there are feathers here somewhere.

I really like this idea by -- coop-like orgs for your software that doesn't need the overhead of foundations or incorporation to build a sort of business that can do, say, dual-license software and have equal pay across all members for it!
