We have a Joe. Joe is a VRP (Very Reliable Person.) I texted him only yesterday in the midst of a destructive wind storm to try to book him to fix the blown off shed doors. Currently outside trying to do same.

I just like this picture. Shows the dust reasonably well, but sky is a bit too light.

Been without power for four hours now. “For safety reasons it has been necessary for our crews to suspend work. We will recommence when it is safe to do so”

Looks like dinner will be gas-fired, or sandwiches.

Just looked at a couple of yeahnah follower requests. One was so brazen as to have their linked site on a .ru domain.

Aaand just when I was expecting a fairly boring (work) weekend, there’s a defect shown up, re-release Monday. Fixing this will be way more interesting.

I’ll forever gripe about relative timestamps but, when “1 day ago” fails to account for time zones, and is actually two days ago, JUST GIVE ME THE DAY OF THE WEEK* AT LEAST.

*In my time zone, thank you.

This is a weird toot, and it's unlikely that it'll work, but I figured I'd try -
If anyone has a Flik Board, and is willing to sell it, DM me.
If anyone thinks they can in any way help replicate or repair a Flik Board via blender/3D printer/sticker printer, DM me.
I've got this possibly spectrum-related thing where I need my very specific stim objects, and Flik Boards aren't made anymore. I only have a few, and I want them to last forever, but they aren't abnormally durable or anything. They'll be lost or damaged eventually. Especially the matte stickers on them, which provide a very particular stim.
If you can help in any way, reach out. And/or signal boost I guess, if you think it'll help.

Thanks ♥️

Reading through this poorly documented code is VERY TRYING.

How to unnerve someone in one easy step: "hello, this is X from the clinic, EVERYTHING IS OK but the doctor would like to change your appointment to a double one." The week after a CT of the head, after multiple head traumas. But it's still 3 weeks away, so can't be too bad.

Oh, and also the week after my MH team passed the baton on to someone else.

Wow, just got to the end of a Memrise speed review (Swedish) without running out of lives, and despite having just switched from a similar language (Dutch.) Go, me.

Damn my pathological honesty. Just discovered that our time reporting system is doing some very creative rounding up, so best to tell the boss.

Today is the last day of my spinning course 😭 It's been one of the best things I've done. The Guild run a certificate course which takes 18 months (one class per month), although the next intake won't be until April so I have a while to think about it.

I love deadlines, especially when they are today. So I’ve got until 23:59:59…

Time to put the kettle on.

*headdesk* Of course that’s happening. You’re APPENDING to the file, not creating from scratch. Twit.

For some reason, I take a certain satisfaction in finding defects in code that I have written that is in production, but nobody has ever noticed.

Today’s musical serendipity was diving into the album Widow’s Weeds by Tristania. Would call this an “associated act” of Sirenia, as there is some cross-over of personnel (and style.)

Østen Bergøy’s vocals on Angellore suggest to me that someone’s been listening to Andrew Eldritch.

Can't you see
Tell me why
You still linger in a world of strife
Your heart bleeds
You're dead inside
Love to you is like cyanide

Trying to find some, any, motivation to work - beyond having a deadline, getting paid, etc. Just. So. Wiped. Out.

Not sure if it’s exercise-related; think I’m now in a stable relationship with seroquel, so don’t think it’s that.

Trying to motivate myself with Goth Metal in the form of Sirenia*. There is always the risk of developing an artistic inferiority complex from the sheer talent of Morten Veland.

* Emmanuelle Zoldan vocals.
