I feel like I juuuuust missed something interesting on the Elvis Wedding Chapel EarthCam.

My phone: Hey, got a routine system update for you, please reboot.

Surprise, welcome to Android 12!

Wasn't really ready for that.

You know, sometimes I get the feeling the compiler simply ignores all my comments 🤔

Then the boss told me some of the trees in my yard aren't safe (true) and he'd give me a good deal.
He is quite mistaken if he thinks I'm going to hire a crew that just damaged my property from across the street to remove trees on -my- side.

Tree crew across the street just dropped a tree on my mailbox. Street's not blocked off, so I assume the didn't mean for it to fall that direction. 😬


I just saw an ad for "Pants made from plants: ditch your denim." Uhhhhh, who wants to tell them?

I forgot to take a picture of the card I made for my father in law but he sent this picture to the family group text.

Did I ever tell you my problem with making curry? 


It was a naan issue

It's hard to believe that a movie franchise that took 3 years between each of the original movies has so much content available today.

11 movies, 2 live-action TV shows (with a 3rd starting this month), and multiple animated shows, not to mention novels, comics, and video games. And toys... I owned so many of the toys in the 80's.

One of my favourite things about being a catdad is playing catch with Poppy. She gets so excited, & I love her little batman ears and squeks when she's ready for the next treat.

(Video featuring my wife playing with her.)

The spinner hard drive behind my home backup system started making noise and vibrating enough in its dock to shake the desk. I guess it's time to replace it... going for an SSD.

If it weren't for the 6TB "MEGABACKUP" drive my wife got for music, photos and generations of minecraft server backups (that minecraft map is an absolute unit), this would be the last spinner on my desk.

I would like it if devs would quit using the name of the programming language to name projects...
pyfoo, gobar, etc.

I think this got started with the mission to rewrite every Perl script in Python, and the only differentiator was the new language, and it was important for the holy mission to make it clear that this was the new, better, Python-based version, not that old and busted Perl version.

You ever think about how valuable rope must be in a pre-industrial society, yet everyone in movies cuts it like it's disposable? Stranded on an island, only one rope in your whole world? Cut it to free the prisoner.

It drives me crazy. I've spliced rope before... it's a lot of work. I've made rope... it's a lot of work, and I started with pre-made fiber strands. Stop cutting rope like it grows on trees!

My gosh, as big as Delta Dental is, how can their website be so bad!

Ultimate translation crime: the subtitles say "knit" but she is clearly crocheting.

I think the Japanese word in the audio is 編み (ami), which means knit or crochet (and is the first part of amigurumi), so if the translator isn't seeing the video and has no translation notes to aid them, they literally have to guess.

Now that the recipient of this piece has posted it, I might as well share it myself!

This is my most recent digital painting, done for the wonderful @silverseams !

I'm quite proud of this one, as I really pushed myself to my limits on it.
