My wife and I haven't podcasted in years, so it was nice to be remembered and included in a roundup of seven Hawaii podcasts in the current issue of Honolulu Magazine!

Woot woot! Toot toot! Thanks to @ashfurrow, is now running Mastodon 2.7.1! Opt in to the member directory and help fellow tooters find each other!

Anyone else a domain name hoarder? Every goofy idea I have I grab a domain name for, but I hold onto it even when I never build anything. Most are Hawaii related. My weirdest domain is, which I used for a link shortener, but I think it could be something much cooler.

Signed my kids up for taiko drum lessons, but they decided they weren't into it. Rather than cancelling, my wife and I are taking their spots. Should be fun!

I'm not a hacker, but I feel like one having successfully updated the firmware in my car's Apple CarPlay receiver.

Discovered the data import/export feature in Mastodon. Exported my following list and imported it into the other instances where I have placeholder accounts. Didn't realize that the system would still send notifications to everyone, though. Apologies to anyone confused by them! Thanks, @bobstechsite for the heads up on birdsite!

"The proposal would allow existing medical cannabis dispensaries to sell marijuana to people over 21 years old with a 15 percent excise tax added to the price going to state coffers." would be a cool name for a Mastodon instance (Mastodon spelled backwards). And it's available. Have at it!

As I've been telling people about Mastodon, I've been collecting various articles about it. In case they're helpful to anyone else, I've pasted my notes here:

Another week, another neighbor island trip for work. Waking up before dawn to catch a flight to Kauai. The Garden Island is beautiful, and though we're not going far, Līhu‘e is still a nice change of pace for the day.

Any peeps across the fediverse know the best instances to hang out on (besides @davidwhogg is looking to connect!
