Pinned toot

Hey friendos! Ottawa Processing Day 2019 is over, which means my talk is done, which means I can experience joy again instead of just anxiety about giving my talk.

@tildetown got called out heavily, and especially @curio (for botany).

Please find attached this image of the Tilde Town Time Service that ran back in November 2017.

It's really more of an artists rendition - as it was created post-facto - but I actually built a working speaker amplifier on breadboard for authenticity reasons.

Remember the year 2000 when all movies had "2000" in the name?
Who even remembers

Godzilla 2000
Dracula 2000
The 2000 Commandments
Around the World in 2000 Days
2000 Samurai
Miracle on 2000th Street
A Tale of 2000 Cities
2000 Angry Men

Turkish garbage collectors open a library for all of the books citizens discard in their trash.

Cleaning up my website archives (from at least 2003), and 2009 has a weird two month gap:

I live on the flight path of an international airport and I was so surprised to look up and see a plane.

Some drums, some chopped up samples, piano and a Juno 6 sound. Really, it's just about getting into the habit, again.

I need to and will do better, fam. 18 hours of downtime is no joke.

We're back.

WTF? I don't understand why, but my Statuscake uptime check was paused and didn't notify my phone, so I don't even know how long we were down for and only noticed when I came to see what's up on Fedi this morning.

I got toots from 6PM yesterday on the top of my timeline, so ... I guess 1 day? I had to reboot the server because Docker was in a bad way -- `docker ps` was out of sync with reality. Not seen that before.

death, kids, asking for money 

github.com/insom/TrellisMIDI -- I wrote something for the Adafruit NeoTrellis so you can use it as an okay 5-pin MIDI / USB MIDI controller and then I made a video with my stupid voice demoing it too -- youtu.be/f-ck0rl3aos

That day arrived and I have populated one board and sandwiched it between two others until I make a case. Not bad!
