I need co-admins for the mastodon.me.uk open collective who can approve server expenses, as they won’t let me do it myself any more (reasonably enough). Any volunteers? Basically no work involved, I don’t even claim that often.

Going to start watching Doctor Who with the 8yo daughter, she's gonna love it. Question is, do I start with the latest series and Jodie Whittaker , or rewind back to Ecclestone and start from there?

I can’t believe it’s 2021 and samba/cifs is still the main option for cross-platform network shares. Isn’t there anything better?

Here's the version that was in my mind. Thank god. Not losing it.

Thank you all for coming to my TED talk.

WORKED IT OUT! en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saints_( shows that there was a single version of the song, which was in the video, which was *different* from the one on Last Splash (which is the one I listed to death). SO, Last Splash is *wrong* on Apple Music, because it has the single version.

Mystery solved. Now, how to find the original LS version.

What's going on? 6 Music this morning played "Saints" by the Breeders, and the harmonies were different from those I remember. And I go to listen to Last Splash and they're also different, the high harmony is missing. Have I lost a specific frequency of hearing? Or am I remembering it wrong? ARGH.

me: uptim
computer: what's uptim?
me: nothing much, but stop calling me tim

Think I need to wipe and reinstall my 2012 MacBook Pro, which is getting a bit creaky, but it’s been going so long I’m terrified (despite time capsule backups)! Does reinstalling macOS every now and again help things run smoother, or does it manage to keep itself clean?

Yet another in the long line of "things I made but nobody noticed and then years later someone did better": flatgithub.com/

Might start a dataset of my failed and superceded projects.

No, *you’re* staying up too late playing Subnautica.

Was rather upset a bit earlier for Reasons, and my daughter gave me a hug and said “stop pretending to smile and be happy, it’s ok to just be sad sometimes”.

How did she get so smart?

TIL about the Game Canon, the 10 most important video games of all time (in 2007). Which *one* game since the list was made would you add? I think maybe Minecraft is important/influential enough to be on there? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Game_can

I am a pattern thinker, a pattern seeker, sometimes the work is just observing and dreaming

Good god, logging into Trello has become a choose-your-own-adventure of confusing options since Atlassian got involved.

As always, when presented with any kind of building system, I have built the obligatory SPACESHIP!

In the meantime, the children are long gone.

My mum has moved into a new house. It has Ethernet throughout and a proper patch panel in the loft. I am insanely jealous. Mainly because i just want a patch panel, not because I *need* one.

The iPhone was introduced almost 14 years ago. Today, Vodafone tell me I can finally get Visual Voicemail, that O2 had on day one.
