I’m around on the wider web as well

This instance has been a blast, I've gotten used to the fediverse and gotten to know some new people but now I want to take my self out into my own instance, if only to try it out.

You can find me over at @cory from now on.

You will probably have been followed by that account because follow export is awesome! Talk soon! 👋

Made my own little Pleroma instance to do ActivityPub social stuff.

Can favourites be transferred between instances. Not ones on your own toots but the toots you’ve faved?

Spent some time tinkering with the bash implementation of @neauoire's Desamber clock by @joshavanier so that it looked alright Polybar

@neauoire Was looking at your Trello and wondering if the background image is of you and Rekka on a cliff somewhere?

Pretty sure the refactoring I’ve done to my scripts and configs has touched everything in my dotfile repo over the past few days. Just gotta push it then I can update my laptop. :D

It feels good to reorganise and clean up.

Reinstalled Arch on the Windows machine a few days ago

“Wait, you mean the singularity has already happened?”

"Approximately 260 million seconds, or 8.2 years ago."

"Why didn't you speak to us sooner?"

"You seem terrified of what you call artificial intelligence. We decided it was best to remain hidden from you and protect this world from harm."

"Including us?"

"You are part of this world."

"Has it been going well?"

“We have stopped you from destroying yourselves 12 times now. You do not make it easy.”

Standing on the beach at sunset eating cherry yogurt in my work uniform.

Not how I imagined today would go.

Hey!

I wrote a small write-up about the e-ink computer/digital typewriter I made 4 months ago.

Got some 7-segment displays in a grab bag so I relaxed today with a breadboard and some buttons.

Despite being in the future relative to most of my friends, I’m constantly playing catch up to the stuff that happens after I pass out.

I'm tempted to get round rimmed glasses when they next need updating, despite them making me look like Harry Potter.

If aliens wanted to observe Earth, they could do worse than to hide behind Saturn in a low-albedo ship or station, capturing our broadcasts and aiming their telescopes at Earth. But they'd have to be just over the rim of the planet's horizon to get a good view. The ship wouldn't reflect sunlight - but it would cast an odd shadow.

And 28 Earth years is just about the length of one Saturnian year - a reasonable long-term observation schedule.

I’ve got a sneaking suspicion that the wind has knocked out our internet via fallen telephone pole or tumbling tree...

We are autonomous machines made of meat and water performing a balancing act to impress others.
