Imagine it's 2008, you work at a Malaysian video production company, and you've been tasked with choosing the background music for a video about the fabrication process of MDF, commissioned by a local timber company.
What song would you choose?
If your choice is a dance remix of the Highlander theme, you're a very strange person by my standards, but I guess you might fit perfectly well in 2008 Malaysia!
Sorry, it's this video, it's making me crazy 😶😶

Rules of food engagement for our child:
- If you give him different food than yours, he'll refuse to eat his food, and eat yours instead
- If you give him the same food as you, he'll refuse to eat anything

Daughter has reached the age of asking "why?" to everything.
"hold on to that cup with both hands"
"i don't want you to drop it"
"It's made of glass, and if you drop a glass thing it can break"
"because glass is brittle"
"because supercooling molten silicon dioxide makes an amorphous solid which is weaker than the crystalline form"
"the crystalline form has a tetrahedral lattice of ionic bonds"
"because one silicon atom can bind with four oxygen"

I'm extremely pleased to launch Run Your Own Social: How to run a small social network site for you friends.
This is a guide book to running a small, tight-knit federated social network server. It comes from my year of experience running Friend Camp. It's focused largely on SOCIAL solutions, though it does touch on the technical.
I've tried to keep it technology-neutral, and it should be a pretty easy read for anyone who's been on the fediverse for a while.
One thing that surprises me is how Spain has many super savory yet simple dishes that haven't become well-known outside its borders.
One such dish is this: eggs, potatoes, Spanish ham strips and small peppers (these ones are Padrón peppers), fried with some garlic in olive oil, add some salt, and you're done. Not exactly healthy, but tasty and nice.
This was our dinner today and I am fuuuuull😊
