Hello Mastodon. I want to read more interesting books in 2018 and I want to share the experience with as many people as possible. I want to start a book club where we read one 200-300 page book each month. If you're interested please post book suggestions and we'll set up a poll to pick books. I want to make this as inclusive as possible so we'll be trying to select books that are coming available in libraries and on the Overdrive app.
The May book for #sffbookclub is going to be Binti. Can't wait to discuss this book with everyone.
I will open the survey for the June book Wednesday and keep it open till late Sunday.
If anyone has any suggestions for books that were not included in the Doodle poll last week, let me know and I will add them.
I love bridges!
My three year old prefers salad to grilled cheese. I think this means I'm winning?
Okay, so the wait for a replacement instance for a.weirder.earth is almost over.
- We plan to get the new instance up and running this weekend.
- Apart from some smaller edits, the new rules have been finalised. I'll be licensing it CC0 so other instance admins and copy and adapt it if they want.
- We are slowly exploring design changes that will be introduced at a later date.
Had a lovely little walk with the kiddos this morning. 🗻 🌱🍃
This will sound sarcastic but I am being completely honest when I say this: being woken up at 4:30 AM to debug some R code for my wife was actually a great way to wake up. I feel fully awake and energized.
I want a new avatar. Suggestions?

Please enjoy a random picture of one of the oddest mutant machines ever put on the road: A bus fueled by *uncompressed* natural gas.
(These were briefly a Thing in the 1930s, but a scant few of them continue in use in places that can't afford to throw away perfectly functional oddballs to this very day.)
What we need, is fewer fingers pointing at others. And more hands pitching in to help out. It's damned easy to say you have a charitable heart. It takes effort to prove it. RPJ
