It's looking quite likely that we'll have to move again. We just did this last year. We've been perfect tenants, love the house and our neighborhood, but because of circumstances outside our control, our partner and I will probably have to move again.

Tiny house, dog, quail, garden that Shelby's invested so much in, piano; being uprooted again with no relocation assistance. Dreading it

If anyone knows of good housing opportunities in #pdx with a decent landlord, lemme know.

hivemind: does anyone remember the name of the artists who did that project extracting tantalum and other elements from ewaste to make weird spacey looking crystal sculptures? I know it's a duo, I know they're Belgian or Dutch maybe, and I always forget their fucking name.

I’m so confused by all of these Canadian HVAC companies joining vis.social… 🙃

In light of the FusionTables shut-down announcement yesterday we need to think about the durability and sustainability of online data journalism -- especially the interactive pieces.

The Guardian "warlogs" interactive from 2010 is 404ing and embedded FusionTables are already down theguardian.com/warlogs

The "dark age of data journalism" seems to be here already vox.com/2015/11/9/9623002/data

I released a new version of my Firefox extension that will forcefully redirect you away from privacy erosive services to better alternatives. It started as a joke, but I end up actually using it.

When I want to look up a place, I instinctively and mechanically start typing "maps.googl...". This extension will instead take me to OpenStreetMaps. It will also functionally translate Google Search links to DuckDuckGo and Google Translate links to Deepl.

Nintendo Switch Online is some serious bullshit

Did I ever tell you people about Bernd das Brot? It's a show that plays on the German KIKA TV network in the night when they have nothing to broadcast otherwise.

It's a show about the existential crisis of a depressed, sentient loaf of bread living in a blank white universe tormented by robotic arms and a creepy narrator. It's utterly brilliant.

I dropped both of my bows off to be re-haired this morning, which means no 🎻 for me tonight. 😢

But on the up side, I can pick them up tomorrow morning. 😁

hi all!

in the spirit of December and also the fact that I was dirt poor this time last year and remembering how much it sucked i couldn't do much to enjoy myself, I wanna get somebody a copy of Smash Ultimate.

You don't need to boost or any of that shit unless you want people to see it and a get chance. Just fave this status and I'll pick at random on like...I dunno, Sunday. The only caveat is that you'd get the code/copy on the 10th (Since! that's when I get paid, lmao).

I wonder what Shigeru Miyamoto or any of the other early Nintendo programmers would think of the way this game has been utterly dissected. I doubt that this level of scrutiny has ever been applied to any other piece of software.

Actually, Pachelbel was the composer. You’re thinking of Pachelbel’s Monster.
