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.

@drskrzyk Damn, I knew that, too. Loved Black Hole as a kid (I even had Vincent and Maximillian action figures).

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

@leeb It takes a bit of getting used to, I needed a crash course in Markdown before I could really use Joplin how I wanted. I miss OneNote's ability to make collapsible lists/outlines on the fly, and Evernote's web clipper is better.

@ademalsasa It's decentralized, federated, and can block whole instances.

Our daughter is watching Toy Story for the umpteenth time. Mrs. IPX remarked that Randy Newman "sounds like Billy Joel got drunk and got his tongue pierced".

Always so astute, that woman...

@tomasino Anything with insects (chocolate covered ants, crickets, etc).

@crazypedia Not me, I've wanted to pack up the family and run off to live to the forest.

Get your IT business out of the US. This needs to have an impact on the economy.
