Attention everybody using services hosted on my network: electrical work tomorrow. We will be offline for most of the business day, Seattle time.

Anyone in the Seattle area? I’ll be at Elliot bay book store tonight 12 Nov at 7 pm talking about my book!

β€œThis is not merely a story about sexism and credit algorithm blackboxes, but about how rich people nearly always get their way. Justice for another rich white woman is not justice at all.”

i don't think i'm a bad person, in the moral wrongdoing sense, but i do think i'm a bad person in the way that, say, a toaster that only toasts one side of your bread and then causes an electrical fire is a bad toaster

It has been decided that halszkaraptor IS an acceptable costume for the Rawring Twenties party.

Gen X is just old millennials who don't wanna be in the argument

critics of socialism fear some people might try to take more than their fair share while not contributing a justifiable amount to society SO INSTEAD we have billionaires

Ok. Off to bed. Tomorrow is another eye surgery. Yay.

I’ve got enough video content downloaded to my phone to keep me entertained for a round trip flight to Cape Town, and enough audiobooks for a trip to Mars and back, and I’m using just over a quarter of its storage capacity. Maybe I didn’t need to pay for the larger storage model.

Not that I regret it.

The Drobo is nice, but not for running software on, and doing large scale data manipulation over mounted drives tends to have lots of failures. So it's mostly going to be low-traffic data (websites and other things run on the docker swarm) and backups, and media processing needs to go back onto something better. I'd _like_ to use Antares, but.. I dunno. Maybe Vela instead. Or build a new machine and hook up the sata array...

Confirmed that _most_ of the noise from Antares is from the three power supplies' fans. By blocking the fans from turning and turning it on, then unblocking them. So, the question is.. do I drop $300 replacing the power supplies and hope the new ones are actually quiet?

Maybe just replace one, and see if it's as noisy, and replace the other two if it's quiet.

Or maybe figure out another plan.

Threw all my spoons into the furnace. Managed to get the second desk disassembled. Pondering finding a quiet place to lie down and die.

Need a teenager to play my video games for me.

Gonna hang on to the twitter app until I can bring myself to stop cross-posting from mastodon.

Thought about it more. Deleted Facebook, Instagram, and Tumblr apps. Because why, anymore?
