Anyway, don't worry, Triple J only plays terrible music now. Feel young instead by going out and seeing bands play.

what is the best Victorian country town that's on V-Line?

Hey I need to write docs for a procedure and this has me wondering how commonly certain words are known so:

Do you know what the words "Distal" and "Proximal" mean without looking it up?

(boosts welcome)

I purchased the domain decreep.me a year ago to prototype an anti-harassment tool. The tool was shortlived, but would anyone like to grab the domain before it expires and some squatter corp grabs it?

- having said that, it would have been better if others on the OC had engaged more strongly

- my own position was weird, as a driving force but also acting in the best interests of the owners corp. I was never willing to accept *any* offer - I drove the negotiations which sweetened the deal considerably - and tried to remain impartial. But in doing so I didn't push it as hard as I could have. That was my best judgement, wrong or right.

Some loose thoughts:
- for a proportion of people, it takes an awful lot of motivation to shift from 'do nothing'. Doing nothing is always responsible and doing something is always risky. (The public service absolutely acts like this).
- trust is constructed weirdly, depending on the direction of an offer and whether that offer is a broadly accepted facsimile or a one-off, regardless of the content of the offer

I guess I'm going to have to write a thing about this solar thing.

People just don't know a good thing when it hits them in the face. And still believe they are smart.

Well, the solar microgrid thing didn't get up. That's a shame. I'm not sure I have the energy to pursue this any further.
