Hmm, I am suddenly in the mood to get some fabric paints, and add a splash of color to my favorite skirt, in the form of queer villain pride bolts running up one side. I wonder if I'd still be in the mood by the time they arrived, if I ordered some. >#> <#<

Today feels like one of those days where someone, somewhere, got a message on their screen reading, "Yote has claimed a codekobold's workshop!" Now to start yelling demands for shells.

Man, that was a good reminder of how little exercise I've been getting lately. I turned on beatsaber for the first time in a while, and was only able to get through four songs before I was too exhausted to keep playing. >_<

Grump. My favorite skirt is all covered in little lint ball things and discolored from it, and nothing I've tried, including a dedicated lint shaver, has worked to get rid of them. ;_;

Okay, I just found out about the IBM TrackWrite, aka the fold-out butterfly keyboard on the Thinkpad 701. Part of me really, really wants to try to find a way to replicate it with a full-size keyboard on a modern laptop. Or just get a Thinkpad 701, and put modern guts in it.

"We have five neins of uptime!" "Don't you mean five nines?" "No, we have five sysadmins in Berlin, and all the servers just fell over."

Well. I just had someone come into the middle of an OOC conversation with a friend in an RP sim on Second Life while I had one of my robot avs on, miss that the conversation was an OOC one, and compliment me in IM on how believably I was roleplaying a robot. I'm not sure whether I should be more amused, offended, or concerned that someone thought me chatting normally was a believable robot character.

Trysdyn's Law: If you remind the general public they're living in a dystopian hellhole, you must couple that reminder with empowerment to do one or more of the following:

1.) Be a hacker
2.) Hack one's own body
3.) Wear cyberpunk fashion, latex, PVC, EL wire, etc
4.) Engage in magic
5.) Be a dragon

I don't make the rules; except this one. I'm literally making this one.

Blarf. I *just* got over a nasty flu, and now I'm sick again. >#<

Huzzah, after only a little bit of swearing, and upgrading through two intermediate versions because db migrations were failing, I was able to get my instance running on the latest mastodon. ...Maybe I should script the upgrade process, and do it more than once per year. >#> <#<

Oh, I just discovered a security vulnerability in my masto instance. Time to update to the latest release, and see if that breaks everything.

Quote of the day from my Shadowrun game: "So, how presidential-looking *is* this robot dragon?"
