I'm on call this week (no worries, it's usually quiet). As I was getting ready for bed, I looked at my work phone (aka pager) and thought to myself: "No, calm down, I do NOT need to take my pager to the bathroom just to brush my teeth and wash my face."

Of course the pager dinged the very moment my hand touched the bathroom door to enter.

Insecure lil pager needed that extra attention! just when I thought I didn't. hafta

Oh, now they're playing the 60s Batman theme! My brain will now remember this as the Batman concert.

I just heard a (really good) jazz band play "In The Midnight Hour" (awesome!) ... and one beat after the last chord, a young child in the audience yelled "BATMAN!"

Now I'll never be able to hear that song without BATMAN! (Beats Freebird)

Me, looking at my bandwidth graphs: hmm, one of my kids must have been downloading a large game yesterday

Must. Resist. Saying "back in my day!"

Pretty sure I know which kid and what game. SO LUCKY!

OH (teens discussing game): "if you do this then the dragon will sit on your head! and stay on your head when you move around!"

Now we know there's a game with a dragon hat.

Dragon. Hat.

My imagination brain keeps showing me visuals for the overlap of two facts.

1. In two weeks, it will be Bat Appreciation Day! en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_

2. Easter Sunday (Western) is also in two weeks, yes on the same day.

So can I please get a candy fly-by from the Easter Bat? Please?

looking for federation help with this (new) instance :boost_requested:​ 

I need some help with federation-related matters in this instance I have set up. I'm looking for:

  • A well-moderated relay. I would like to remain connected to the larger fediverse without the larger fediverse involving, well. The usual bullshit.

  • A curated, trustworthy blocklist. See above; I am copying those of my trusted servers but I might be forgetting some.

Boosts are really appreciated as we're nearly single-user and it's hard to get the word out.

does anyone who is visually impaired or otherwise rely on screen readers have any experience with trying to use linux ?

from what i can tell the linux experience seems pretty hostile to screen readers, and there's not very much resources dedicated to orca, which seems to be the main implementation .

please share your experiences with me if you can, i want to try to make things better .

please boost :boost_requested:
