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.

Thank you @vilmibm for the tiny pirate kingdom where you made us all guests.

I have taught my son that opening up the inspector on any webpage and adding "contenteditable" to the body tag allows him to freely type the word "butts" anywhere on that webpage and I have a strong suspicion that this knowledge will shortly spread to his entire school

Just impulse bought a DJ controller with a translucent case and a garish green glow, and the YouTube search terms for it are full of 10 year olds DJing terrible pop music which ... well I guess the glow-in-the-dark should have tipped me off.

Bought a physical copy of Wired to read Paul Ford's article about why he still believes in (capital T) Tech.

Of course, you can just read it on the web here, too:

a man stopped in the middle of the road today, in his SUV, and got out - cars coming all around. He walked into the road in front of the car and bent down to pick up a hedgehog and move it onto the grass, clear of the pavement.

Well done Mr. Man, whoever you are. Thank you for taking the time to care.


@vfrmedia @natecull I've been following you for months and months and couldn't figure out if you were in Southampton or New Zealand and just today realised you are two different people with different (but similar enough to my brain, at least) cat avatars.

Lividness. Just, the state of being livid. Oh, that's just livid, then. 😤

i actually think a tetris movie shouldn't have any blocks at all, it should be based on the core philosophy of tetris which is "if you ever make a mistake things will keep getting worse and worse until you die"

Wow this 12x8 layout is actually usable. I wonder why this didn't stick last time?

Captain Marvel proves that young Generation X and older Millennials are finally worth pandering to with setting and music.

Grey skies, green grass. Boost if you agree.

I missed email debt forgiveness day. Huh.

Three years ago I spent that day crying in Euston station writing an email to one of my dad's best friends. I had just come off a 9 hour flight from Canada for a job interview so I was already sleep deprived (can't sleep on planes) and emotional (wanted this job, but was I really going to movey family to Canada?).

I never got a reply. I don't think I had email debt this year.
