Hi, fedifrens. On the 29th, I'm riding in the Hill Country Ride for AIDS along with a few other members of UA Unified, Under Armour's LGBTQ+ culture club. The HCRA benefits 9 central Texas organizations that benefits those affected by AIDS and HIV. If you can, please donate https://hillcountryride.greatfeats.com/ben-hamill/donate and/or share this? I'm trying to raise $250. Thanks.

I've been experimenting with the experimental "Freeform Window Mode" in Android. Got a USB-C dock plugged into my phone, a mechanical keyboard, a monitor, and a Bluetooth mouse.
Tonight, I used coder.com to run VS Code in Chrome with a Docker box behind it so I could install whatever languages I needed.
While a podcast played.
And I checked email.
Like on a desktop, but with all my data and important apps right there in a pocket sized box I can carry away with me.
The mother cat on Babybus (a YouTube cartoon for toddlers) got sick and the kittens took her temperature. It was 38 degrees Celsius. Exactly in the middle of the "normal" range for cats. But noooo everybody's like "she has a fever" and I'm yelling at the TV going "she's totally faking it just to lie down and get away from you kids!!?!"
This toot brought to you by caffeine and toddler entertainment.
I've got a dev environment set up, I've got echo installed, and I've got some custom middleware functions going. I'm actually kind of liking #GoLang

My wife deleted her account on birdsite so I guess there's one fewer reason for me to stick around there.
I just realized: One thing I'm missing from the Fediverse are event calendars.
I'm currently in a group of people planning a climate protest, and we're using Facebook to post events there for people to subscribe to.
I'm not aware of any federated social network / tool where I could post a calendar event and people could subscribe to it.
That would be a really useful feature to get more people off Facebook.
Taking a break from fixing the SX-64 to work on this Commodore 1902a that UPS damaged on the way to it's previous owner. Did a little Bondo work this week and got the corner in decent shape again. Some plumber's putty and a couple coats of primer should smooth it out before paining.
I'm trying to find the right colors and it's hard. I used Montana Gold paint on my Apple //c monitor and I liked working with it. But I'm much more familiar with Commodore colors and something just a little off will drive me crazy.
