@mdhughes @cypnk reminds me of using Bluewave in my BBS days to read email & forum posts offline

Q: good follows or instances for someone into music, synths, vintage computers, asking for a friend who just joined the Fedi

@LaCrecerelle Sure. I had a C64 as a kid. Got a PC in high school and later a modem. Called BBSs for a couple years then got a Ripco account to explore the internet in 1995 right before I went to college. Taught myself HTML & JavaScript in those early days.

Let's get something lined up!

Two screws sheared off my cheap treadmill's kickstand. Took some work to get the remnants out. But they were easily replaced with better quality screws. I'm considering the simple construction a feature I guess.

@dansup they're migrating everyone to YouTube Music soon-ish, once they get library uploads working and can migrate playlists. GPM is totally on life support.

I'm probably going to see Rise of Skywalker sometime soon. Not out of interest but because I've seen all the mainline Star Wars movies (all the theatrical releases except Solo) in the theater ever since my parents took my weeks-old diapered ass to the drive in to see A New Hope.

It feels more like an obligation than something I'm interested in. One last trip to church for Christmas Mass.

This AI Dungeon 2 session is off to an...interesting start. Everything up to the word "spot" is the original prompt I entered. Everything after came entirely from the AI.

Finally got to the hotel after midnight. World of Commodore starts in twenty minutes.

There's not enough coffee in the world to get me through the day.

Facebook surfaced a post of mine from 2014 when I got up early to watch the Orion capsule test flight. I was so excited about the future of Orion & SLS even though I knew they were less than ideal, politically driven designs like the Shuttle.

Here we are, five years later and…nothing. That's so depressing.

I really want to bring my Ultimate SX-64 to World of Commodore but I don't want to try to get that mess of wires through airport security ☹️

@mercurythedragon narcissists aren't going to get diagnosed, and narcissistic abusers are masters at playing mental health professionals to convince them there's nothing wrong.

And narcissistic abuse is quite different from garden variety abuse.

It was immensely helpful for my healing to have terminology, coping strategies, and community with other people who experienced the exact same things I did.

@sylvia_ritter I can tell I'm going to like them just by the artwork. Excellent work!
