Sorry (not sorry) I've suddenly gotten into . This includes converting some of my plants to hydroponics so they can eat fish poop right out of my aquarium water while it's still fresh.

I watched the first episode of this morning.

It was very different in tone, style, and pacing from other Marvel projects. I found it to be wholesome, optimistic, upbeat, and funny. I liked it more than I expected I would.

They seem to put a high value on authentic representation of Pakistani-American culture and family dynamics. A quick look at IMDb and the creative team behind the show tells about a Marvel creative team drawing from representative voices.

I’m watching “Salem’s Lot” and it’s amazing how many production goofs are in this. They had some big actors and still made an amateur vampire film.

In another life I would have been a filmmaker.

Here's my ideal scenario:

1. Purchase music for download (or rip from CDs).
2. Create playlists, etc on my computer.
3. Sync music, along with playlists, with my Android phone, in a way that lets me listen offline.

So... basically what I had with my T-Mobile G1 back in 2010? Or my iPod in 2005?

@chucker @bigzaphod @wwdc it was all staged anyway. These things are so over-produced anymore. It seems safe to assume everything is either a rendered fabrication or a scripted augmentation of reality.

The thing I don’t love about things like is that incentivizes compartmentalization of acceptance/inclusion. If I’m queer all year, why can I only be proud in June? See also: Autism Acceptance Month and many other examples.

Whoever dressed Tim Apple for this event should get the sack.

It’s kind of sad that we even need Continuity Camera, though. It’s only there because Apple has a long, proud history of nerfing its MacBook cameras.

@bigzaphod @wwdc I seriously doubt they will go the payer route. Provider, though? Yeah… wait for it.

@bigzaphod @wwdc but will it only work on the built in display? I fear that’s true. For those of us who use an external display at our desks, I’m getting the sense from the demo that we can’t do that.

I’m curious about the “Continuity Camera” feature announced at . Does it only work when the iPhone is clipped on top of a MacBook display? Or will it be really useful and work on an external display?

has become a bit of a parody of itself.

The MetalFX demo was particularly awkward when they were crowing about smooth graphics while showing jerky ones… talking about realistic graphics while showing primitive cartoonish ones.

Progress. It’s far from done but the plumbing bulkheads are in. I’m still waiting for supplies to arrive.

I think if I were starting over again I might skip tech to make films.

I’m going to start plumbing hydroponic plants into my aquarium filtration system. Photos description: several angles of a potted peace lily houseplant and a square glass planter that it’s intended to be transferred to. The glass planter has one small hole drilled in it up high and a larger hole drilled down low on the same pane. These holes are for mounting plumbing bulkheads for water going in and draining back out.

@vkc I feel like with my fast internet connection + stout home infra I should probably be seeding a couple of popular Linux distributions.

@gotosocial I’m going to check it out this weekend. I did make a beeline for your docker-compose.yml because most Fediverse projects are frankly not doing well in this department. Yours looks very easily deployable so I’m looking forward to checking it out!

Sometimes I feel like I’m just done with tech and it’s time to make movies or something new.
