Hey, you!

Yeah, you. The one reading this.

You're pretty cool!

Anyway. Just wanted to say that. Later!

@jeff I obviously don’t know all of the things that have been going on and I know this must be a very hard time at GB central, but just know that I’m totally on board and I know that you’ll make the best next thing happen.

Since the great iMac crash I've kind of decided to just try new stuff instead of reinstalling all my old stuff. So Fish instead of Zsh, now trying out NeoVim instead of regular vim, and Vim 8 package loading instead of Pathogen. I don't love all the new stuff, but it's nice to at least try it out.

One of the things I'm doing as part of this computer rebuild is moving from zsh to fish. So far I really enjoy it!

I'm also trying to only reinstall things I actually use. Which means I keep going for a shortcut and...it's not there.

Finally got our solar panels turned on and connected...on a rainy overcast day.

my iMac is restoring from a bad state. I need to babysit it through the restore, but that doesn't mean I can't have fun in the meantime. Really loving the :raspberrypi: Raspberry Pi 400 running Xubuntu.

I put my music player into "just shuffle everything" mode this morning.

seems to be in an .E.M. mood at the moment, with just a dash of Kenny Loggins.

I'm down with it.

I look at this and all I can think is that I'm buying a bag of cut-rate P.M. Dawn.

I realize I'm dating myself hideously here, but I had P.M. Dawn's first two albums. On cassette.

Recently I re-purchased them on CD.

Let's count like :raspberrypi: the raspberry pi foundation!
1

Zero (NOT "0")
Zero W
Zero WH

400
pico

There! Now you can count from "1" to "pico" just like your favorite little linux SoC!

How do you store your passwords?

Well, I know what I'm doing this weekend!

P.S. If you have ever bought one of my "Painless" books, that's what paid for this! 🙏🏼 :raspberrypi:

COVID 

Getting my second vaccine today. It's nice that I can stop stressing about that now.
Well, in two weeks.

And of course I'll still wear a mask in public to keep everyone safe.

But it's nice to see a light at the end of the tunnel.

Just discovered that Obsidian.md does italicized emoji. I can't tell if they're doing faux-italics by slanting the text, or if the Apple Color Emoji font has an italic version, but either way it looks very silly.
