How is it that we are sending machines & eventually people to Mars, but we cannot do #SocialDistancing to save our fucking lives?
Did you know that @lauraritchie wrote and published a book and recorded the audio for the audio book and you can grab it at https://www.amazon.co.uk/Yes-Can-Learn-power-self-efficacy/dp/1999794346 ? :D (And you can read her toot about it here > https://mastodon.social/@lauraritchie/107163718949867517
Every time today when I took a few deep breaths to center myself and be mindful instead of finding relaxation my brain kept finding the chorus of the title track from the Film Frown movie, WHITE FIRE!
Please cut this song out of my head with a chainsaw!
"Apparently, no one in Silicon Valley has a sense of irony. Snow Crash is a dystopian novel, not a utopian one."
Coco has cared for the mouse since last week. It has a motion sensor in it and squeaks when handled too aggressively. If either of us bump mouse and the squeak happens, Coco comes running and takes mouse out of harm's way. Occasionally, we are allowed to play with mouse and even play fetch. Mouse sleeps in the bedroom at night with all of us.
Friend @welshpixie reminded me of a feel good story.
Last week, my doggo and I were walking home and I spotted a cat toy in the alley. I figured she would be interested in the smell of it. However, Coco surprised me by picking it up and dragging me home. She held the toy mouse carefully in her mouth on the elevator and when we got home, she carefully put it on the floor. She spent the whole day carrying it around. Before her next walk, she placed mouse by the door & grabbed it when done.
#TIL about Bonfire, which at first glance appears to be a self-hosting project like FreedomBox/ Bone and Yunohost.
"The Bonfire team is preparing to launch a hosted service that will host your fediverse identity and sync your Bonfire apps with the fediverse."
Join us tonight for #CircusInPlace, the fun part in the middle of our week!
My clown partner @avalon and I will be practicing acrobatics and other circus skills starting at 8pm UTC-5.
Friends from all over the world join us for conversation, company while they work on their own projects, and to occasionally cheer when someone gets something right. :)
I probably should have put the drive back in its original USB 3 case, now that I think of it. I have always used a repurposed case as my testing quick and easy hookup. That thing is probably 15yrs old and slowing me down.
Drive data rescued earlier this year thanks to testdisk. Go figure, another drive crashed. Unfortunately, testdisk said this drive was not available for rescue. Since it was mostly a photo backup drive I decided to try Photorec as recommended by testdisk. I started 5 days ago. Currently, it says 3,105 hours to go. Hopefully, I am still living in 129 days!
Writer, video editor, motion graphics occasionally pay me. Creating art and having conversations fuel me.
