Hello, world.
Trying out mastodon largely as I wanted to somewhere to post my learning to draw drawings, and increasingly annoyed that everyone's content is tied up in user-hostile walled gardens.
I guess given that I have the capability to host my own I should be the change I want to see. Even if it does mean I might just be speaking to myself.

Returning to after a long break. Skipping the rest of the gel pens chapter as the prompts weren't inspiring me. Next chapter is "About Town" in pencil and black pen.
First up: a bicycle.

I was about to start my machine when a man suddenly appeared in the lab.
"I come from the future," he said.
More people appeared as he spoke.
"Are you here to stop me?" I asked.
"No, to witness."
Proud, I turned back to my machine, then heard a whisper:
"This bit is hilarious!"

"Hey, dad, guess what your grand-daughter wants to be when she grows up?"
"I'm guessing Experimental Paradoxist."
"Expe- How did you know?"
"I spent my youth trying to not get killed by her adult self."
"Oh. Well, she gets timetravelling from her mother's side."

As per @selea & @rysiek's suggestion I've started a PeerTube channel for video recordings of interesting FOSDEM 2019 sessions.

You can follow it via @fosdem2019 or

It's kicking off with the ActivityPub panel hosted by @cwebber & Gualter Barbas Baptista.

This extension is my new favourite:
Other social media sites are on a strict time limit. (Mastodon isn't currently because it's not actively trying to hijack my mind.)

Amazing. RustPython is the top trending project on GitHub.

We bury the sailors who die in their beds in the graveyard by the sea.
"So they can hear the sea," we tell ourselves.
And every year, in the winter storms, the sea eats more of the land, and claims a few more graves, of long-dead sailors whose calls the sea still hear.

Meta! My drawing book was a very thoughtful gift. (thanks @ruthicus )

Apocalypse World. Dice and clouds. The cloud shows a jungle and cliff path from one of my recent games.

The maiden ride up to the dragon's lair, lance raised. "Come out and fight me," she called.
The dragon looked at the knight. "Your girlfriend is here."
"My ex," the knight said. "Help me put my armour on?"
"Don't fight her, you might get hurt."
"I've got to protect you."
