@robert I use the default, but I've stripped out everything but the Firefox logo and the search box.

I do so enjoy a quiet, nicely written essay on a small moment in someone's life. This is one of those.

Here are four pictures of #Dill, as a puppy, trying to figure out how chair do. What chair for. Who chair. Enjoy

The year is 5019. Humans, as we know them, are long gone. The Earth is inhabited chiefly by advanced, sapient machines.

For legacy reasons, everyone's name starts with "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible;".

Yeah, yeah, I think I dig the 1 column layout. Thanks to @hugo for keeping my instance so effortlessly up to date!

Thinkgeek.com is "moving in with GameStop", aka shutting down. Sad day. Some of my best nerd accoutrements came from .

My other pics turned out...poorly, but this one works. For being printed in 1972 this thing is in amazing shape, and apparently has never been played. The money was still all in packs, like notebooks, held together with glue. I'll try to get a picture of the stacks we haven't separated yet.

Just a quiet announcement that, after a long dormant period, I have pushed a new update to . I can neither confirm nor deny allegations that I'm working on Painless Git to avoid studying for midterms.


This is the happiest news I've seen in a long time. The creators of and the company making the new Star Control:Origins have decided to stop making life suck for everyone who loves the series, and settle the long legal battle with honey and mead. All Star Control projects can go forward, and everyone agrees to play nice.

BRAVO, guys.


Everyone talks about Apple’s Space ship building, but nobody talks about Overstock.com’s peace sign building. ☮️

I just bought a copy of a board game that's older than me on eBay. I've liked Acquire in all its forms, but nothing beats the original 3M plastic pieces on a grid. I'll probably post pictures when it arrives.

A base-level Mac Pro + the fancy monitor to go with it is $11,000, unless you want a monitor stand, then it's $12,000.

It's like they WANT me to build a Hackintosh.

Do people actually like sleep, or do we just like being less tired? I do enjoy the few moments when I lay down and get all comfortable in bed, but if I could arrange it so that I was never sleepy again I definitely would.

Right now I'm the kind of tired that is just happy to sit and relax.

This is much better than the kind of tired that makes my brain feel like a block of granite that needs to crash down through the lower bound of consciousness into the sea of sleep!

But it's still not a great feeling at the start of a workday.

I've talked about this before, but let me do it again.

The US is more or less run by the entertainment industry.

Creating your own music, art, movies, books, videogames, podcasts, and stage plays within the US is an act that robs the established power structures of attention.

Making media is an act of radicalism, of protest, and of outright rebellion.

Support local music. Go to a community theater. get a bunch of weird nerds together in a basement and film a talkshow.

Fight back.

Streaming random music from my server running on a NAS back home and Weird Al's "White and Nerdy" came on. I could only think "yeah, that's about right".

Frogmob Life

Hey there! The frogmob life is a simple, calm life. Frogs don't waste energy on anger and fighting. Or something. I like those two words together and my very first ever website was called frogmob.com, so I resurrected that here in the fediverse. Expect this text to change. We are interested in low-stress, happy and open discussions of life, faith, the universe, and Doctor Who.
