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.
I've launched a sister site called https://aus.party
Aus.party is a "Mobilizon" instance - Offers an alternative to Facebook Groups and Facebook Events!
So if you want to run public events or public groups (or migrate away from Facebook). Please consider giving it a look.
This is a "newish" service and will improve over time.
P.S. This instance is connected with https://deffo.com.au so events will be shared (run by our friends at chinwag)
The eSafety Commissioner is trying to get porn filter powers.
Call your MP and Senators and complain.
If you have time, write a submission to the inquiry. Closes today (they only gave us 3 business days to respond): https://www.aph.gov.au/sitecore/content/Home/Parliamentary_Business/Committees/Senate/Environment_and_Communications/OnlineSafety/Submissions
So it turns out this was actually delivered this afternoon, I have no idea what the hell happened with the date there.
(Yes there's a handful of cocked-up chords in there where my fingers didn't quite get to the right place).
Okay this seriously rules: my guitaring is going well and at the moment I'm practicing some power chords, and have been just using the metronome in BIAS FX Mobile to keep time. I remembered out of the blue that GarageBand has a "virtual drummer" thing where it'll automatically play a whole drum kit for you with all sorts of different styles and presets. BIAS FX can run in the background while doing this, so I gave it a go and it's SO MUCH FUN! Way better than playing along to a metronome. 🤘🏻

It’s the last day of black history month!!! If you like the art I make and the kind of stuff I gotta say, consider supporting a black creative on an ongoing basis by subscribing to my patreon or messaging me for a commission 🤍
Kristina and I played Warhammer Underworlds tonight, and Beanie again decided he need to come up and help.
I played The Dread Pageant for the first time, they're interesting! I miss the lack of magic-casting though. I managed to win by one single point, and it was purely luck... if Kristina HADN'T killed Glissete in the very last activation, it would have been a draw!
