There's something that fedi love for artists that is unparalleled so far. For me.
I've created a hashtag for all kinds of femmes on here to express themselves & show love for each other.
My patreon has grown, ty ty patrons! for liking my rambles.
I've sold books, zines, art.
Ppl always express an interest in what I wanna do next.
Feels like my possibilities are endless here.
A week in the shop: good progress as we near the end of a build, I get a pull request for my fretboard generator, and I make some noise.
To celebrate and amplify the http://hannahfestival.com ethos this year I'm hand-delivering copies to interesting, like-minded groups here in Liverpool. First up is Sam from http://homegrowncollective.co, a brewer making good beer that also looks at its impact and surroundings. Added bonus of lunch at the similarly ace http://homebaked.org.uk cooperative community bakery
Went to a jamming session today for the first time in ages, and I ended up playing one of the tiny Vox MV50 pedal-sized amps through a Marshall 4x12 cab 😂
It sounded excellent - clean until you pushed it, then a nice bit of grit. First time playing a nu-tube device, but I have to say I was impressed!

Intrigued by Trio, the Python concurrency library. Has anyone here used it in anger?
(I'm not a fan of Python in general, but I am a fan of well structured concurrency)
Getting back into the shop: starting the new year by making a new pick-guard, setting up a new laptop, and playing with some graphic design for fun.
OK we need to stop with the argument : "we can't block trackers because then the web won't work anymore." I have been using Brave, Firefox (with Privacy Badger & HTTPS Everywhere), Samsung Internet with Disconnect (& built in tracking protection) & Safari (with Better blocker and 3rd party cookies disabled) for years now. I can report: the web works mostly fine without the tracking. In fact, it's great.
@mdales I don't remember seeing any. They used to be on SD cards, but we're fragile and easy to activate by default.
in other news, DE ICE trains have an API, I now have a fish snippet that formats it for my status bar if it detects that I'm on an ICE train's WiFi~
