Used my WFH budget to buy a 500W/520Wh battery pack.... (I already have solar panels with bypass circuit to recharge..)



@lipsandskin Can someone tell me if this is the right way to summon the correct lindner? Bonus points if it sounds like you're summoning a demon =)

Product Idea: Terraform for Teams using Google Calendar/GSuite.

Just let me put agendas and crontab lines in a text file and have it drive the whole thing. Right now it's all pointy-clicky and there's no way to rollback in a coordinated way.

Also would make it soooo easy to split a team into two or clone a team...


For those that haven't spent their 000 WFH budget.


Guessing that lithold will be with me a while longer...


The known site I'm posting this from is finally back up after a few hours of fighting with podman networking, nftables and mysql unicode collation.


Income targeting seems.. problematic on a number of levels given the distribution of income by ethnicity and gender.. I probably don't want to know how we calculate rich vs poor traffic.


Can't seem to find a way to get Desktop PWAs to work on a new laptop..

Currents/G+ isn't offering an install option and the PWA Anywhere app isn't really doing it's thing.

I seemed to have gotten some entries created but clicking on them opens a tab. Then I can go to the triple dot menu and click 'Open in Gmail' and the application window opens.


Sorry Chromebook, your screen lock timeout is way too short...


"Police Reform" is the new "Cage Free Eggs"

We don't need more humane oppression. Replace the system with one that is focused solving on human needs, not in reinforcing broken organizations.


Google could refuse to work with Law Enforcement Agencies until they clean up their act. Minimum legal effort and that's it.

Not doing so puts people at risk.

Our time and assistance is valuable and a privilege so we should prioritize good actors over bad.


"The Purpose of a System is What it Does"

Change, or replace, the system to get better outcomes.


Finally solved a really weird network issue on my home network.

Multiple interfaces with different firewall rules on the same wire cause great confusion, but a few sysctl entries fix it.


@slightlylate @KevinJHill Better put it in the freezer if you want your GPU to survive.


Adding some new background music to the WFH mix. Come play! You can chat and make requests!


Any covid-19 WebPass-for-business specials in SF? I have a potential customer...


"You die Edison Carter or you live long enough to see yourself become Network 23"


that xscreensaver is on Android and usable as live wallpapers.

"Hacking the Gibson" adds some nice cyberpunk aesthetic to my home screen...


Oh wow, I haven't read the issue cover-to-cover but I didn't see @waynecoyne mentioned there.

I'll make sure that I do this justice and will see if I can find an ANSI C (or A2) sized scanner for the cover art. yeah, good times. Bad reception though! And Radio K only had a daytime AM license at the time. That's why they were 'open to 9pm'!!!


You had to work harder to listen to good music back then. @radiok remembers. I'm sure @djkevincole of remembers.


Just amazing work by @chankfonts including design, content (and fonts!) and photography by @midwestartbuyer and tons of other people...

Will upload to @internetarchive when I'm happy with the results..


The @dnalounge webcast player sprouted a bridged IRC chat during the DJ set. Will be really interesting once it switches back to the music video jukebox on

Stream it:


Connecting the community is definitely an 🌟essential🌟 service.

Stay safe and healthy!


Traded Saturday morning cartoons for Saturday music. Teenage Kicks on The Current by Jim McGuinn followed by Dandelion radio.

Anyone Chicago Googlers here?

Apparently there's a fire-bowl on the roof of the Chicago office. I happen to know the artist that made it. He asked me if anyone had photos of it they could share.

If you do let me know and I'll get them to him!

[we was also a loyal G+ user back in the day!!!]


And here's the song of the same name by The Suburbs.

A huge shout out to Owen Murphy and John Richards for playing it this morning on KEXP and reminding us that we're not alone!

@RadioCoachOwen @loserboy @TheSuburbsBand @kexp


It's my birthday and the world isn't fooling around, but we can do our best to help out the most vulnerable.

So help each other, be weird, have awe, sing, dance and be human!


It's live! loving your anecdotes and the narration by @yeahrightpos

I do think it's time for an at-home 'Summer Splash Party' where we put on our swim gear and dance to disco 🕺💃.

(check out the clip at 20:24!)


Thank you Dominik, I have been blessed with a treasure of digital memories to rediscover and share. So glad that you were able to enjoy my journey through the archives.


According to this interview with R.U. Sirius

"Howard Rheingold swears that he’s Michael Wilson, who was involved in the development of the TV show Burn Notice..."


Also the same week I discovered there's a Jay's Longhorn documentary..


Oh wow.

Already have @djkevincole a few minutes in...




Something about these times that I feel your loss as my own. 💔

Thank you for connecting the community and being there for everyone, as Ralph was there for you.


We'll all probably remember the first friend who contracted COVID-19. For me that's Andrea. She wrote about it on her Tinyletter.

Please read, if only to prepare yourself for what is to come.



Not to be grim about it but everyone may want to consider doing your paperwork for medical power of attorney and/or a health directive. At the very least partners should consider adding each other as trusted "" (which is what Kaiser calls it). You'd be able to access tests and communicate with Doctors on behalf of each other.

Having gone through this I feel very fortunate that I was able to make medical decisions for another and knew what the right thing was to do.


Thank you for letting me share Julie's memories, tacky postcards and all, with everyone.

If anyone reading this has suffered a similar loss, please feel free to reach out for a sympathetic ear or for help finding memories in the archives. DMs open.


Actually with some tweaks I got all the grunge list content I was looking for!

Still think it would be awesome if the backup tapes were found. @herf wrote a great article about the lyrics part of the site:


Thank you for your sympathy and for all the work you've done to make @PerkeepOrg into a such a useful tool for personal digital preservation.


Honored that I was able to tell my story of restoration and healing on the @internetarchive blog today.

Thank you @whanamura and the IA team for your compassion and for preserving so many cherished memories of my life with @jflindner.


that Google Analytics referer spam is a thing.


Aha. swore that I already checked. So yay!

But sadly... many/most of the leaf pages are empty or truncated. So sad :(

The quest continues!


A challenge to the data hoarders out there. Find the contents of the amazing music archive that one lived at (FTP or Gopher) and was mirrored to

@textfiles - didn't see it in the boneyard. Ideas?


We've now entered the Cyberspace future predicted 30 years ago. Expecting a resurgence in Industrial Music..


some Bluetooth speakers can also operate as a speakerphone over USB, which works great for GVC calls.


St Patrick's Day Isolation mood...

🎵 Caffeine sugar and THC
Is all that the doctors are gonna find in me
When they do the autopsy
The micro-organism won't get me 🎵
