I'm Geordie. That's my name, I'm not "a geordie" because if that was my name and a thing I was it'd be really weird. Late 30s, cishet (he/him), love basketball and go to all Sydney Kings home games with my wife and 7 year old kid. I live in the North Shore are of Sydney in Australia. I love cooking, especially for my family, and I work in cloud tech. I joined Mastodon to have a more chill experience with more real people.
What with the inexorable march of time etc, I find it harder to change focus from near to far.
These glasses have refocusable lenses (from some horrible cheap dial-eye specs), a couple of little linear servos to drive them, and a couple of endoscope camera modules to track my eyes.
The focus is adjusted based on where my eyes are converging.
Remembering the N-Gage, Nokia’s failed early-2000s attempt at a combination mobile phone-slash-handheld game machine, whose awkward design led to the brief Internet phenomenon known as “sidetalkin’.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N-Gage_(device)

I also one day want to make shoes because I was completely obsessed with this guy making them on YouTube but man it is HARD, not only skillful but you gots to be STRONG
My favourite pair of shorts has had the pocket rip badly, I'm going to replace the pockets in those shorts.
A weird thing about me is I'm sort of a prepper, but not in a "bury guns and bulk buy tinned food" way, but more in a "I want to know how to repair my own stuff and make things" way? Idk if that makes sense.
We have an employee of the month thing which the bosses pick, and we also have one that we pick because the bosses may not know. Also if a customer says something nice they get an award too. The prizes are each $100. I won the employee pick this month, and the $100 was the last of my budget for a sewing machine, so mine is on it's way!
Let's talk a little about the hot subject of the week: #Twitter.
It's obvious why Elon Musk wants to buy it -- he's a raging attention vampire who wants to install himself as Twitter's permanent Main Character.
But it takes two to tango. You can't buy a company unless the people who own it are willing to sell it to you.
So why are Twitter's current owners willing to sell? Let's pop the hood on the company's financials and try to find out. (🧵)
