I'm a wannabe keyboard hacker Show more
I transplanted the top of a black keyboard that stopped working after a decade of use, to a white keyboard. I don't think they make these anymore (Natural Keyboard Elite), but I have a stash of 'em I picked up after I had a bout of RSI type symptoms that had me fearing for my ability to work in my field. Anyway, it's kind of fun, you know, for an ergonomic keyboard. I wish they had made some different colors. I wonder if I can dye the white keys...
I know it is Monday, but I guess it is #caturday here.
Spent my day at Latch-Up conference, nerdin' it up while there's still time.
I'm back? I enjoyed the holidays more than I expected to. I took some time to "finish" this image I cooked up in support of my team working on a project at work (sasquatch and narwhal were code names). It's been a long time since I had done anything creative. I'd like to make it a habit again, but I don't know... Welp, time to get back to the grind.
I feel an urge to get back to art after not doing anything for two years. I pulled out an unfinished carving, but it may not be a good place to restart. The concept always felt too big for the stone, and it was damaged in one of my many moves. So maybe I should let it go. I spent a couple of minutes this evening contemplating it, and an image of taking my hammer and pounding it to dust kept flashing through my mind. That'll happen eventually, but maybe I shouldn't be the one to do it.
It's a pleasant morning where I am. Looking forward to a pleasant day. TZAG good people of the #fediverse. I hope your day will be/is currently/has been good.
I dunno... Maybe we overdid it with the cat bed?
It probably goes without saying, but I'm not very good at memes or excrement posts...
After the upgrade to Mastodon 2.0.0 for social.coop, some people's avatars seem to be missing in the timeline and on their profile pages (I'm using the web interface). For example, this is what I see on mine. It's most obvious when looking at local timeline. Anybody else seeing this? http://social.coop/media/GCHoNyPn_6oMSKd8GFM
Making things last Show more
This has been on my todo list for over a year, but I finally got around to making an adaptor for my FirefoxOS ZTE so that I can use Android earbuds (my previous earbuds irreparably died a couple of months ago). I know I will eventually have to replace this phone, but today is not that day. https://social.coop/media/IBrmvjYH7f2Kz8-LlvQ
