It occurred to me earlier today that a lot of people these days don't know that you used to have to pay for caller ID, and it often required a separate display box daisy-chained to your phone. If you didn't have caller ID, in many places in the US, you could dial *69 and that would tell you the last number that called for a one-time fee. (These were relatively late additions to the telephone system - I don't think caller ID existed when I was a child, and there were radio ads for *69 when I was in high school.)

hamfest is when everyone says how cute @whalefall 's hamster is

hah, they named the horse in Elden Ring "Torrent". gonna be just a little harder to pirate the game ;)


I almost feel guilty that I'm not completely shut down with grief. I know that's not how it works, but I find myself feeling like I should be performatively grieving, somehow.

Sourcing Arduino Nano w/o headers 

I am looking for an Arduino -Nano- without pin headers.

The official shop has stopped carrying them, and i dont want to fight desoldering all the pins.

Clones are available, but Im hoping you all will have recommended vendors :)

I -could- get an official BLE version, but those have about 100 too many extra bits that will never get used.

Please take a moment right now to let your friends know that you love them.

(My friends, I love you. <3)

Good morning, fedi. I hope your day is stress-free and that you get to spend some time smiling today. :blobpurpleheart:

Good night, fedi. If you're struggling with your health, please go see a doctor, even if it's the ER. I will help will bills as much as I can. Stay alive. Your friends and family need you.

All of that is to say that Cindy, wherever you are, I love you, and I miss you.

I don't follow any given religion. I've tried several flavors from all over the world and none of them seem to mesh with my weltanschauung, so I tend to self-describe as an agnostic. But I have a hard time believing that this is all there is. The idea that consciousness resides solely in the brain as the consequence of electrical impulses between neurons and synapses seems absurd to me. So it's easy for me to believe that death is not the end. I don't have an attachment to a particular viewpoint on how death isn't the end, but at the very least I prefer to believe that we persist after our bodies' death.

And if I'm wrong, well - the idea will die with me, won't it?

...frell. I forgot to bring in a new batch of dialysate. It'll be too cold if I bring it in now; I'll do it in the morning and let it warm up before I put it in the vampire.

mh, ridiculous 

it feels absurd saying this, but it genuinely feels good to know that I'm sad and not just depressed.

Please take a moment right now to let your friends know that you love them.

Every page load of Elekk and now includes Cindy's name. She will not die as long as my servers are online.

I almost wish I hadn't called. But... on the balance, I'd rather know.

A woman is not dead while her name is still spoken.

GNU @venatus / Cindy Franklin.
