Pinned toot

Hi everyone! I've moved over here from mastodon.art, since my enthusiasm far outstripped any sort of actual talent I had, haha.

I live in Western Sydney with my lovely wife Kristina and our half dachshund/half Maltese dog Beanie, and am a hobbyist coder and photographer, Apple enthusiast, and general all-round geek.

Everything kinda sucks but here's the puppy playing with Wednesday ♥ `

So if you've been following me for awhile, you've seen me mention Fipamo from time to time as one of the projects I've focused on.

Fipamo at it's core is a blog platform that started as I promise to myself to get writing again but only with software that I built so I can add features that I need and to share it with other folks that want something easy to use and have full control of their data.

It took a bit but it's finally in beta.

Wooo Rebel Galaxy Outlaw is now available on Xbox! microsoft.com/en-au/p/rebel-ga

(I presume it's available on other consoles too, but I only care about the Xbox).

Quote of the year from this dude who is sick of people’s shit

And now for something completely different, I'm racing a goddamn truck in the rain.

strong opinion 

i really dislike spotify, and most of the reasons are clearly just grouchy personal preferences of mine. but i can't shake the feeling that it is also actually objectively bad. i think paying artists effectively nothing, destroying the concept of "i have a copy of this record" and encouraging everything to turn into an endless soup of background playlists has done more to devalue individual pieces of music as culturally important, meaningful artifacts than piracy ever did

And done! Total race time, an hour and eighteen minutes.

Current status: doing eight laps of the full 25km Nürburgring circuit in this little beastie. It's SUCH a fun car to drive, it's absolutely glued to the track!

I find these kinds of anecdotes terrifying because there doesn’t seem to be any cohort (age, class, education) immune to cults and cultic beliefs buzzfeednews.com/amphtml/janel

Breadposting, but also dogposting 

Beanie knows the exact sound of bread being cut, and no matter when in the house he is, he'll come in to the kitchen like a shot, waiting for either crumbs to be dropped or me to give him a scrappy end piece.

Breadposting 

Made bread! They're a little flatter than usual, I think because the overnight temperatures are getting warmer and 12 hours bulk fermentation is too much now.

I was off doing some exercising and left my Magic Keyboard on the lounge. Came back after I'd finished to find this.
