hello (again)! I survived the w.t and a.w.e extinctions and am now here for the time being

I talk about: my day to day life, my feelings, knitting/yarn, art, books, lesbian stuff, naps, random objects I find, piano, ukulele, and organising. sometimes I do my nails and take pictures of it. my favourite colours are blues and chromatic greys.

I am friendly (I hope) but not great at initiating conversations, so talk to me!

Earth is round, kids. Stick around so you can hitch a ride into space and find out for yourself

Wait, what. Windows 10 sends info on USB devices plugged in directly to Microsoft?

And it does that using pure HTTP?

Umpteen years later, I am STILL disappointed when I type 'make love' into my UNIX command line and am not greeted with "not war." :) #unix #geeklife #linux

Time to leave the net and move to Bora-Bora.

Really, how is this ok?
