Pinned toot

Stuck in the middle of a life-enforced social media break. There’s just too much going on. Brain is full to the point of overload & my wit has taken a leave of absence as well. Hope all you lovely people are trucking along ok. I’ll be around IRL, finishing this album/book/photo collection/t-shirt design/gig/rehearsal/dark room/day job.

This book on St. Augustine is an interminable thing, and I feel like I'm learning (not that it's a bad thing) more about the roman empire in N. Africa than I am about St. Augusine himself, so far. I'm almost halfway done & keep dozing off. I started it on vacation in JUNE.

TIL its etymology:

@Gargron Security level "Visible to followers" is illogical. I don't want to lock account and vet followers. However, sometimes I want to post something that is not supposed to be broadcast to the world.

There should be a security level "Visible to those whom I follow" or even "Visible to mutuals".

Could this be done, or should we avoid posting sensitive stuff at all without locking account first?

Don’t want to jinx it, but the kiddo thinks she’s up for a promotion to lead test engineer of human interface systems on LM-2 when they ramp up the electrical install on it. I literally cried for joy at my desk for about 5 minutes when she told me. How is this even my kid? I asked her how she got it & she said “I asked for it.” GO GIRL!

I could do without the giant watermark, but man I love me some Howlin’ Wolf.

Fun fact: you can switch your default search engine from Google to DuckDuckGo and there's no downside

I didn’t set it up with a black plate because we’re doing black shirts this year. Came out pretty well.

You know you’ve got your CMY balanced pretty well when there’s no black ink in the print & you get this;
