I was already feeling exhausted all the time, and now with post-COVID fatigue, *everything* is a struggle against wanting to crumble into a heap on the floor.

Wear a mask, folks.

Outer Wilds is not content with being one of the most intelligent and emotional games ever made; the expansion also makes it one of the most terrifying. BRB, need to go be a hermit in a very well lit area for a year or two while my heart rate gets back to normal.

Think I'm going to wear an owl mask and antlers this Halloween. It won't make much sense to most people, but it'll scare the SHIT out of a select few.

Do I know anyone using a Glow SMETS1 CAD to get realtime data from their smart meters? If so, what are your experiences? shop.glowmarkt.com/products/gl

FLOSS and the idea of software freedom is a political statement. Politics also evolve as humanity evolves.

At it's heart though, you can't go wrong with the idea of Freedom of the Commons over individual freedom.

There's a reason for the golden rule.

OK, if this doesn't work, I might have to just accept that my printer doesn't *want* me to print out my own head to stick on a space marine.

Scientists looking for macroscopic quantum effects should study children, because they only bloody do anything when they’re being observed.

"Strong opinions, loosely held" are for things that aren't ISO8601 date formats.

I think what I actually mean, to be more technically correct, is a hub that will work with both Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C form factor) AND Thunderbolt 2 (mini displayport form factor). I've no idea if it's just an adapter job, or more complex.

I want a docking station hub that I can plug in screens, USB, etc etc, for BOTH my work Macbook with USB-C, and my ancient home Macbook with Thunderbolt. Is there any way?

Is there a word for the style of mobile game that has the “10,000 gems for £100” type monetisation? Other than “whale bait”, obvs.
