spent the better part of the day theming my phone's home screen...

@er1n oh no! I'm here if you need to talk. Went through it briefly this weekend myself.

Who knew the museum had an exhibit about my subconscious?

@audrey Adrian could always use some fresh ideas and attention but it's a pet project that nobody's heard of github.com/daveross/adrian

Saw my first black cat Halloween decoration this year and almost lost it. I miss my Margie.

@natecull at the Star Trek Experience, we exited our shuttlecraft to hide from the Borg and one of the walls had a small display running Windows 3.x. I guess it was controlling the simulator?

@ajroach42 there was a company making LCD based reproductions a couple years ago but sadly they fell off the face of the Earth

@lmorchard hey, no worries. Mine is Ikea bits and a disassembled SX-64 all over the floor.

Installing the AliExpress app on my phone because I've decided I don't like having money.

Us: it's not good to lie to your kids so we're not going to do Santa Claus in our home

Half of all kids TV: and now a very special Christmas episode where Chippy the Chipmunk goes to the North Pole to meet Santa and learns the true meaning of Christmas!

Other half of kids TV: we literally never even hinted at this before but Otto the Octopus' family is Jewish but tonight Otto has to help Santa deliver his presents before midnight!


@polychrome one thing I like – turn it off & on to start over completely w/no state saved.

Been listening to a lot of Illinois Street Lounge on Soma FM. One thing that stands out is how much the songs from the 60s talk about "watching girls" as a thing to do. Like you just sit there and watch young women walk around? That's it? Somebody get me a time machine, I want to bring these guys back some Nintendo Switches.

How did we make any social and technological progress in that era? It was the gays, wasn't it?

Just when I thought I've seen everything, last night I downloaded an ANSI-style roguelike for my Android phone that made me watch ads to get food.

Fun fact: each book scanned for the Internet Archive has a unique identifier, usually the title of the item, or its first 16 characters; the volume number, or 00 if there isn't one; and the first 4 characters of the author. So:
