thank you so much for literally keeping me alive, fediverse!!! :black_sparkles: :blacker_heart:


I need to make a much more concerted effort to keep track of friends on here.

Pals, it's been a fucky year. Sorry if I've been a bit flaky.

On this morning's walk, it's all about Big Clouds trying to look like the Northern Lights.

The noise of the radiator beginning to hiss in the mornings has quickly become my favorite sound.

Set up in the second place. I like it a lot. Could stay here awhile, if finances let me.

It's right north of the M8, north of the City Center of Glasgow, in a comfortable old middle-class apartment building. I could walk downtown if I wanted, and probably will, once lockdown lets up. It's got a bus stop and grocery store nearby, too.

I'm curious what people do for external drives/backups nowadays. Any ideas?

I was about to buy yet another external hard drive, but then I saw that docks and adapter cables + bare drives are a thing...

Any recommendations for something USB3, Mac compatible (preferably universal for RaspPi/Windoze/etc.)?

What connector are we even up to these days? The last bare hard drive I touched was IDE...

The Arecibo radio telescope, the largest observatory in the world for 50 years, collapsed today. Here’s a latch-hook rug I made of the message it broadcast in 1974 and the globular cluster that was the target of that message. Rip you big ass telephone
