Seems to be working just fine to me. Maybe the error is on your machine. Have you tried turning it off and on again?

Yeah, this really makes me feel better about the therapist I haven't had for years while dealing with frequently recurring invasive thoughts and compulsions to end my own life.

Part of me wants to find humour in the fact that they were too busy measuring dicks to be able to help me. But instead I just feel more worthless now.

"It'd be neat to run the output of different speech synth configs as the input for different speech recognition configs recursively like a game of digital broken telephone."

opinion about dog owners 

@ashfurrow

I do not appreciate a dog barking loudly and continuously. I can be sensitive to excess noise and people yelling does the same thing to me. If I could simply ignore it then I would, but I cannot, and it tends to cause me a lot of distress and anxiety.

People that let their dog shit in public places and do not clean it up seem to be totally ignorant of the massive health hazard that this creates.

There is more, but some of it is linked to very upsetting memories for me.

opinion about dog owners 

@ashfurrow A big pitbull that barks loudly at me and proceeds to jump up at me when I enter somebody's property does not scare me. Especially if it was brought up properly and not abused. In that case it usually just wants to sniff me and lick my face.

However, I have a lot of grievances with the way people treat and handle dog ownership for canines of any breed.

@halcy : Yeah but to their credit maybe they knew the UPC for it and could type it really fast despite not having an instant recollection of what one of those things looks like.

The thing about being an art critic or historian is that sometimes it is only worth your time to dissect and describe in detail a small sliver of what you have seen.

YO WE INTERPLANETARY NOW!

@ersatzmaus : The trick is to use meet.jit.si/

Though if that for some reason fails you too, then do reach out and let someone know.

Horny 

@GlitterDisaster
I can hump your leg if you want but I don't know you very well so that sounds awkward.

@ashfurrow : Built-in Bluetooth chipset I presume? Apparently a lot of people still use USB Bluetooth adaptors because the signal strength is much better.

Not an optimal solution when the built-in one shouldn't have this problem to begin with. Not an issue when docked tho.

tech nostalgia 

@ashfurrow I've seen this mod before and one of the ways it's been done used something like a microzif to CF adapter, then a CF to SD card adapter, and then an SD to microSD card size adapter. It's silly, yet amazing.

The original clickwheel iPod is still one of the best portable music player designs I've seen. Maybe once some patents expire, somebody will produce a similar rotating clickwheel and button arrangement as a buyable hardware component. I can only hope.

Kirin Zest first draft 

@GlitterDisaster : Always adorbs~

Gave up on trying to get my website synced to hyperswarm. I don't know if hashbase actually accepts addresses with the `hyper:` URI scheme. It doesn't reject them. But also Beaker was having issues with hole punching so maybe there's discoverability issues.

Lastly, I even tried to see what I could do with some of the node packages available for handling hyperdrive stuff. None of it worked for me. Bummer.

Maybe once the dust settles on the recent changes I'll try it out again. Not in the roster for now tho
