My friend was going to throw his mower out and buy a new one because it kept loosing power. I swooped in to the rescue and fixed it in about 10 mins. Cable had a break in it near the handle. Cable shortened and reattached. Works a charm. Stop throwing things out snd start fixing things people!

Golly it feels like #MastoAdmin must be the toughest job at the moment. This transition time when manual blacklisting is no longer enough to keep communities safe, and nobody knows what’s the right approach (or if there even is one) to efficiently prevent spam/malicious use on both instance & user level, without completely sealing ranks and never letting new people in. So much respect to admins and people working on technological ways to solve these social problems.

Word of the day: SNUDGE - to stride around looking terribly busy, when in fact you are doing nothing.

I have keyboard dents in my forehead.

Note to self: If you're rendering out an animation in Blender and you've also got a track in the video editor, the latter will override the output.

I've been doing a fly-by of some game packaging. I'd previously rendered out to image files and had imported them to the video editor as a sequence so I could quickly play with the various FFMPEG settings. I couldn't work out why tweaks to the camera path weren't doing anything.
Head. Keyboard. Boomf.

Looks like the video review of my Slayer #DnD class is more like a showcase.

Here's the link for anyone who wants to see it:

I like his idea for re-naming Banishing Strike toward the end! 😂​

I had to scroll back through past faves for 10 minutes to find that last boost about the moss gardens. I think I’ll make one

Here is a long thread on keeping moss as a houseplant that I pulled off my twitter, wrapped up as a blog post - so now you can read about practical moss gardening without having to visit that website :>

First play of recently-fulfilled Vindication at #boardgames night. You're a fugitive of some kind and you're wandering around on a map trying to get honor (points).

This is an action selection / engine building game disguised as a dude-on-a-map game, and I think the game gets a lot more interesting (at least, for Euro-ish gamers) once you realize that. In some ways it's what I wish Hyperborea had been, even if the similarities between those two are mostly superficial. High 7 or low 8 out of 10.

I'm thinking about getting a very small/foldable spinning wheel and I'm stuck between:
electric one: +super duper small -electric
travel wheel: +an actual spinning wheel -still rather large
Opinions?
