Pinned toot

OK, I've moved my old account over here, so if you're seeing this unfamiliar name and profile, it's because you used to follow me under a different name. 😁

If you need me to jog your memory by all means send me a DM and ask.

Don't panic! You followed me for sound, defensible reasons, that you won't regret. :bloblight:

Fiddle arrived, I be fiddlin'
It's fun: intuitive to find notes (even if I'm rubbish at it so far), and I'm glad I watched a bunch of videos on bow-grips because it's made it easy to minimise the infamous "beginner's squeak" so far. :)

Gotta love this term: 報復性熬夜 - "revenge bedtime procrastination". It's when you stay up late because between work and family and chores, night is the only "me time" you have, and it doesn't even matter if all you do is waste it on social media - it's the one little piece of schedule *you* control, and it'll happen even if it means you'll be sleep-deprived.

Which is what I'm doing now, and pretty much every night since forever.


Just saw my first ever wild Barn Owl, outside my own house while bringing out rubbish.
Full Moon is so bright right now, and the back lights came on, so it lit him up like a ghost. He was flying while regarding me, with what might have been annoyance as I may have been scaring the prey.
I'm in love

I've run a big text adventure for thirteen years (at one point briefly it was the biggest text adventure!) and if there's one thing I've about managing a big online community in that time that I'd choose to pass on as a warning to others, it's this: remove the people who don't like being there.

Some folks just don't like the place, or they liked it once and they don't anymore, and that's fine.

You'd think they'd just go somewhere else, and most do, but some don't, and those folks are AWFUL.

Gradually getting the hang of this song, though the words are in places a bit complex for my state of Irish. The "Neosainn" is a hint that this is also Gaeilge na Mumhan, in theory my native dialect but one that is distinct from the more common learning resources. Even "Ní Neosainn", which means "I wouldn't tell", is a Munster verb-form of "Inis" not found in most dictionaries.

I genuienly think we need to talk about how any coding thats even vaguely "hackey" in any capacity tends to be dunked on when its mostly functional by people who have never written a piece of code or finished anything in their life
