I just discovered Daði Freyr. Would have been Iceland's Eurovision entry this year, had it not been for the 'rona.

A knob-twiddler. Interesting to see his technique. (Not in the linked video, but others).

The sunsets were purple, and red, and yellow, and on fire, and clouds catch the colours...

You don't see that, you might still see that in the desert.

When we lived in Arizona there were lots of little fluffy clouds.

The most beautiful skies...

Reminds me of Pink Floyd circa 1969-1970 (think: Grantchester Meadows, Fat Old Sun).

The album is Lost and Safe, if you want more. (I just bought it).

I *should* be doing stuff for the accountant, but switching UI languages on an iPad and noting translated messages is far less threatening, also I get paid for it.

Stand by to launch remote control attack ship! Launch ship in orbit, good! Now I'll activate its weapons!

Bad Brain Day. This would normally mean I'd struggle to work but, now that I'm putting all of my tasks - even the simplest/quickest ones - into JIRA, I think I'll be able to nibble away, and still be productive. Half the problem is being overwhelmed, and unable to figure what to tackle. My kanban may be just what I needed to cope with this.

A Day In The Brain Of 

I dreamed that I was getting Charlie Chaplin's Modern Times mixed up with Mel Brooks' Modern Times. I'm fairly certain that MB didn't make a fillum Modern Times, but my dream had it as influenced by Chaplin's, and I'd totally watch it.

I am a señorita
There's cheese on my Ryvita
A pint's less than a litre

A Day In The Brain Of 

I have tended atimes to a stream of consciousness on social media, but it's always been heavily edited, because random shit is very random. Today, as an experryment (sic) I'll dump off some of the earworms and Weird Thoughts that would not normally pass the censor. Here goes...

Work 

I try to be what clients need, even if that's just being human (for which I don't charge). Let's just say that I regard it an honour to be vented to.

I learnt somewhat about some of the joys of being a woman in business, in a misunderstood sector. All I can say is utterly fuck the patriarchy.

I just got stressed shitless trying to get Google Meet to work on three different systems. I used to hate using the telephone, but it was a huge relief when my client agreed to do just that, sorry I just picked up the damn phone. No idea what an hour and a half to Germany is going to cost, but *shrugs*

Over half an hour on phone to GoDaddy support, as I can't ssh in. "Can you try again?" "I'm in! What was the problem?" "We had to toggle ssh in the backend."

In other words, turn it off, turn it on again.

Poking around Windows - is it worth my while playing with Visual Studio for JS/web/Python stuff? I don't normally use an IDE, but willing to give it a go if it can make me more productive.

Well, that didn't have me worried AT ALL. ThinkPad battery dropping, although showing as plugged in.

Searched, and this worked: shut down, remove battery, hold power button for 30 seconds, replace battery, connect charger, restart. Comes back charging. Must remember that one.

I assumed it wasn't the battery, as it had been running unplugged for over three hours (!)

I'm calling it. My new/old Windows laptop (Thinkpad) is now the backup to my Macbook, and the Linux one (Elitebook) is just my bare metal Linux dev machine.

I never thought I'd say this about Windows, but I can actually work with Windows 10, quite comfortably.

Also this little 11" Thinkpad is a really neat machine. Best $260 I've spent (includes new battery).

Can't recall which of you ratbags put me onto Beer Cartel, but I accidentally...
