Weird, my SDF Pixelfed account is gone. Granted, I haven't checked it in months.

My daughter's 7th birthday is today. Her birthday cake was just delivered, but I'm under strict instructions to hide it and not open it.

I did, however, sneak a quick picture. Our birthday girl is going to be a happy little unicorn today!

Apropos of nothing in particular, today I learned how to block people on Mastodon. Remember kids, free speech rights don't mean anyone has to read your BS.

America in 2020. People using forged (and mis-spelled) cards from a fictitious organisation to misrepresent legislation intended to protect disabled people so they can avoid showing a basic amount of courtesy to help protect others during a pandemic.

Not only is this bullshit ableist as hell, it would literally be easier just for these people to put a damn mask on their faces.

If you're in the US and someone hands you one of these, cut it in two and throw it in the trash.

I'm giving Calibre another shot. I've been meaning to organize my zines, so it might just come in handy.

Most people forgot that the original name of the "Cracker Barrel" was "Honkey Bucket". They should have kept that name.

Kinda depressed. Think I'm going to log out for a couple of days to recharge.

Hackers (1995) is like, Rocky Horror for hackers.

I printed a new bookcover for my Powerbook 1400, but the colours are off (the red ink might be running low). Will have to reprint later.

Mrs. IPX is back from her brief six hour hospital visit. Kidney infection as we both suspected (not uncommon, as she suffers from Nephrocalcinosis), but this time she has gallstones in the mix as well.
