Lesson from last night: when you’re all punch drunk and exhausted, processes and procedures are your friends. That is the worst time to cut corners.

I wish more software cooperatives were product companies rather than consultancies. For one, I'd be interested to join a co-op, but am completely uninterested in consulting. For two, I think having the company be in the hands of the workers could have a positive effect on what it's like to use whatever software product is being made.

Have you heard about #LollipopCloud yet?

No, not a song... :blobpatpat:

It's a project - to make hosting personal internet services such as a website, contact list, remote file storage, or a calendar more accessible to users through open source technology and ARM Computing. It allows for anyone with an ARM computer to host their own services.

:blobcatbusiness: Wanna know more?

Caution: Mycroft's mailing list pipes its unsubscribe requests through a soooooper-skeevy tracking site. You literally cannot unsubscribe without accessing the site. (Or blocking it at the mail server level with an unprintable error code, which is what I'm gonna go do, brb)

When you discover that someone's gender identity matches their assigned sex from birth, you're allowed (only once) to say "Just as I cis-pected!"

However, this right is subject to revocation, so please watch this space for further updates and clarifications.

Letter going out with everything clashing. But damn that wax seal came out well. I stamped the seal and then highlighted the pattern with a silver sharpie.

Ugh. First day after being on call and I’m super sleepy because my last night being on call I got paged several times. None the rest of the week, just bad timing.

Val and I just took Fox out for his first short ride in the kitty stroller. Almost to the end of the driveway. Then he got treats. Everyone seems happy with this.

Starting today off super slowly. Sleep in. Drink coffee and watch the birds and squirrels.
