After ignoring org-mode forever (I use emacs for coding and blogging mostly) I've finally dug into it and it's amazing. I'm going to keep using Notion for pretty content I want to share, but emacs org-mode for todos, journaling, and other lists (replacing Obsidian). I think I'll use Syncthing to keep all my notes in synch.

He's @Gargron ! But let's get him on FLOSS Weekly for sure!!

I just added 27 new members to our Mastodon. Biggest growth spurt since day 1! Welcome!!!

For new people wondering why Mastodon is on thousands of servers instead of one:

-It helps protect us all against Elon Musk scenarios. It's very difficult for anyone to buy a network made of thousands of independently owned servers. (It's the same reason why no one owns the world's email network, because there are so many independent providers out there.)

-If your server misbehaves (or sells out to a malevolent billionaire), you can move your account to a different server, or even to a brand new server. Decentralisation means you're never trapped on a site you hate.

-Mastodon is an open platform where anyone can start their own server, and they don't need tech knowledge if they use a service like or

...and there are lots more good reasons too, to do with servers using alternative Fediverse software etc, but I'll save that for a future post 😁

This might be the best thing I ever wrote about being "talent."

I've posted a long overdue update to my "I Use This" inventory on I'll add some pictures in a bit.

I never wanted my son to follow in my footsteps. Little did I know he'd do much better!

Let's try this one more time...

Can I use Mastodon for commenting on my blog?

Sitting in the Houston United lounge waiting for our connecting flight to Oaxaca.

Yes. My shirt does say Oaxaca. Literally.

I got my DIY laptop today with:

Intel® Core™ i7-1185G7
32GB (1 x 32GB) DDR4-3200
Intel® Wi-Fi 6E AX210 No vPro®

Plus these expansion cards


Assembled it in half an hour. Installed Manjaro Gnome 21.1.1 and everything works, including the fingerprint reader.

I'm using it now, and it's already my favorite laptop.

Despite the many minutes I had to spend setting it up, I really like the new Vivaldi. It's now my default browser on Mac and Linux.

Interesting new venture from TWIL's Denise Howell

Fits With Fits

"Pre-styled sets of hero pieces, blending preloved and vintage treasures with runway vibes"

It’s official. We’re planning a group cruise to Alaska in July 2022.

I’d love you to join us! Lisa and I will be on board. For every 60 people who join us we can add another host.

I've been playing with notetaking with logseq, an open-source git-syncing, Roam clone. It's one to watch, but I'm still happiest with Obsidian + Synchthing.

Shoot. I got up early to watch the Monaco Grand Prix and it's NEXT week. 😞 Guess I'll have to play Valheim until it's time to go to work.
