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.
We had another visit from @wobin today, dropped Beanie down to one single one of his pills, and honestly I think we could have entirely done without them! Beanie didn't even bark to start with, and after that it was just excited barking rather than panicked.
We played Warhammer Underworlds again but with me in an advisory role and it went really well, was a close game right up until the end.
Anyone here running a PXE server that serves multiple OSes? Is it worth my time learning/making one because I'm too lazy to plug USB sticks into things? (For reference, I'm a tiny little IT repair shop so it's not really here or there depending on how straightforward it is to provision and maintain)
Does anyone out there in #retrocomputing land happen to have a copy of Final Cut Pro 4 from around 2003 sitting on a shelf somewhere? Hit me up.
This is a screenshot of the 1968 Abarth 595 Esseesse that I've turned into an UTTERLY INSANE MONSTER in Forza Horizon 4. It's been converted to all-wheel drive with a inline-4 turbocharged rally engine and weighs only 545kg, but puts out 498kW and 926Nm of torque, and has a top speed of 327km/h which it reaches ALARMINGLY quickly. 😂
When you receive a commission asking: 'Please could you paint a Friday night at pub kicking out time, with all the fights, kebabs, and throwing up in gutters, but in the style of the Bayeux Tapestry?'
A fine example of what I can only describe as avant-Romanesque by Jim'll Paint It.
The recipe I followed was this one: http://raspberryandchipotle.blogspot.com/2011/07/cut-rounds.html
I'm not remotely a person who knows about baking so I don't know why they didn't rise (needs more baking powder maybe?), but they WERE nice and moist inside and not like hockey pucks!
There's this British historian and TV presenter Ruth Goodman who's done a whole bunch of docos about life on farms during various periods in history. She did one series called "Edwardian Farm" and during it they made a thing called "cut rounds", basically like a savory scone. I found a recipe and made them, and while mine didn't rise much, they're REALLY yummy!
