At home here we put on Idles, Fontaines D.C., and Sleater-Kinney to unwind.

They finished the spaceship, tidied the garage, and rolled the ship out.
"Ready for the test drive?" the engineer said.
"Sure thing, sis," the pilot replied.
"It'll be a week for you, but a year here. I envy you, bro."
"Mm." He paused. "Sure you'll be okay?"
"2020 won't beat me."

I've been using Foliate on my Ubuntu laptop,, and it has some sensible defaults (Linux desktop software with sensible defaults, dang.)

Or at least a "note to admin".

This is something I'd like to change in Bugzilla where someone is automagically suspended depending on spam reports instead of an admin getting a notice to look in on something.

Is that the "opt-in" list where you have to add the allowed instances as a configuration file?

@klendool @emma @STaiRBNDR I think opt-in federation is a pretty clear requirement for making safe communities possible. The idea that you MUST federate is pretty toxic and isolating, because it requires that you find the right blocklists (and do the work of adding each one. at. a. time.) and fielding whining from the free speech types who think that defederation is "censorship"

Screen writers, directors, and designers need to see some rocket launches in person, and talk with folks at JPL, SWRI, and APL.

@emma movies arent awed by spaceships anymore and it's a mistake


Friend of Mom's who took me to see Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979) (d. R. Wise): this is so boring!

Me: This is so cool!


Yes, more odes to space infrastructure, less "we spent 24,000 hours rendering the destruction of a city and all the people in it!"
