Hi folks, I'm trying moving to aus.social because a) I'm curious, b) Straya. I've run a couple of "tilde"-like services over the years, and there's something in that world that I miss nowadays and hope to somehow find a way of sustainably recovering as a way to escape from my daily grind. I once helped some people start a User Group back in the days when we all wore onions on our belts. I love long, aimless where I can listen to and practice my skills.

Mid-week, and it's struggletown, but in non-work news I've almost made "room" to order my _new desktop_ thing. 2 years of tech backlog cleared to get to this point. That's an achievement!

The great Thornbury #Marble, seen on a 12km circuit around Preston that failed to lift my spirits - I must try harder next time. #walks #moods #gardens #houses #northside

I made it to mid-week, and I officially declare it Weather. Hurrah!

Boris, _Feedbacker_.

It does what it says on the tin, and it's effing fabulous slow-moving, drone-y noise. May or may not clear out my blocked head, this morning.

(yep, I really should give my old Klaus Schulze stuff a spin this arvo, in memoriam, given the news)

Measuring the health of an online community by librarian:libertarian ratio

Covid, food. 

On the downside, I have the Plague.
On the upside, our emergency hot sauce delivery arrived a few days early.
On the downside, I have the Plague, so I can't/shouldn't try any of them until next week.

Hey @gippygunzel, @ThermiteBeGiants and others, have you seen this book? It's a curious crossover between train content _and_ a famous 20th century Australian photographer (Rennie Ellis).

Can't wait for the new arrivals to discover they can use their fedi account to follow video channels on @peertube instances, photo stories on @pixelfed instances, events on @mobilizon , musicians on @funkwhale , and @owncast streams.

listen, i'm glad everyone is here/back but platform metacommentary alone won't be enough to make this stick. you need to start posting inane nonsense

Not quite enough spoons to travel to the hot sauce shop yesterday, so now I _had_ to order just enough to get free delivery. But it’s important that we avoid another Hot Sauce Emergency, so…

- The Brian Jonestown’s _Third World Pyramid_. I picked up some releases early on in their career and then lost track, but their recent stuff’s been great! Vaguely psych rock, but it depends which album you’re listening to.

Alright. One more RPi out of the way means my 22.04 updates are done for the household. \o/

: one of this arvo’s pickups from Thornbury Records - The Tears of Technology, yet another excellent compilation from Bob Stanley & Pete Wiggs, this time of early 80s synth music.

Welp. Last weekend’s long overdue tech binge was either a great idea (everything’s in a better place for us to isolate) or a terrible one (what am I going to do *this* weekend, if/when the Inevitable occurs?).
