I'm gonna be offering free advice and support for questions related to linux, FLOSS and online privacy from now on.
Are you considering switching to a linux OS? Are you looking for alternatives to your proprietary software and hardware? Do you need to know how to do X thing in your new OS/software? Do you want to know if Y thing is even possible with linux? Hit me up. Public or DM, either is fine

No notebook is too fancy for you! Scribble all over them! Enjoy the feel of your pen on fancy paper!

Your thoughts do not have to be grand or ordered or even coherent to deserve being written down somewhere that gives you pleasure.

My copy of Tao Te Ching (the Ursula K Le Guin version) should be arriving tomorrow. That and Stephen Fry’s Troy are next after I finish up with It.

SimCity 2000 + SimCopter + Streets of SimCity was such a glorious trifecta from Maxis. Like... the fact that you could import your cities into the other two games and either fly around them doing rescue missions or drive around them blowing stuff up... incredible

Covid-19 vaccinations +, xkcd 

Ive been addicted to since I was little and loved exploring the worlds created by my favorite authors. So when I stumbled on this Guardian article I was enthralled by the details that go into building these worlds of imagination. theguardian.com/books/2021/jan

I’ve been really inspired by @tripofmice who created . So I think I’m going to create an account on and contribute as many edits and additions as I can. 📚

I’m surprisingly really enjoying Star Trek TNG. Such a simple but fun show. Maybe it’s nostalgia tinging my opinion but I find it far more rewarding to watch than many modern shows (including the later Star Trek series).

I’m finally getting my head around LibraryThing. So many options! 📚
