Pinned toot

I'm part owner and roaster at a little coffee company in Wisconsin. Author of Typica, a popular free program used to capture and work with coffee roasting production records that's used at roasting companies all over the world. Volunteer on the Roasters Guild education committee. Available for paid coffee consulting, training, open source software development. Living with a cat who broke into my house and decided to stay. Likes: cute, travel, food. Dislikes: blinking lights.

3D printer is capable of printing uselessly thin decorative cups. Let's see if I can scale that up, thicken it out, and get something that an hold a pair of scissors and some pens/markers.

Sometimes the cat questions my life choices. It's pretty much always the same question. "What are you doing and why isn't it petting the cat?"

Why are the owls wearing hats? I have no idea. Next up, figuring out how to print something other than the owls the machine came with, but it's late so that will have to wait for another day.

i'm no tech person but decentralized twitter that's made/run by twitter is still just twitter

fuck that noise

I seem to have acquired a 3D printer. Making a pair of red test owls now.

Put Sumatra back on the coffee list on the shop's web site. We weren't out of that long enough and the flavor of the new lot isn't different enough that I'm making a mention of it on the main page. It's just available to buy through the site again. For anybody concerned about going there and risk scabbing on the whole YouTube thing going on right now, video embeds on that site all come from my PeerTube server and nothing auto-plays.

Mastodon is funding a small independent team of up to five proprietary software architects, engineers, and designers to develop a closed and centralized standard for social media. The goal is for Mastodon to ultimately be the owner of all social media.

So apparently if a server running Mastodon runs out of disk space it just spits 500 errors everywhere. Problem solved, sorry for any inconvenience.

The efficiency gains from virtualisation are great. It used to be that flipping the wrong switch could only stop one computer, now that one tiny action can bring down dozens.

Sometimes my car radio also picks up other drivers navigation systems. What does the FCC even do?

While driving to lunch yesterday NPR had live coverage blah blah impeachment blah blah while the car was in motion, but when the car was stopped it was some woman singing in not English with some minimal piano accompaniment that was beautiful, and if the car was going <15mph I got both. Kind of wish I knew who the singer was. I might've bought an album.

Email supposedly from some hotel I've never heard of with a completely unrelated .top domain with a "DocuSign" link going to some .br? Yeah, I'm sure that's legit. Not. <2 hours later another company I've never heard of with an email from another weird .top pointing to the same .br running a different scam, but this time with an address at the bottom that claims to be a US address except it has a postal code for London (UK) and no city/state. Yeah, *plonk*

She's had enough cuddle time to calm down now.

The cat yelled at me a lot after work today. I think it's because there were roof repairs happening while I was out.

In case anybody is wondering, the trip from Sturtevant to Portland takes a bit over 46 hours on the way there and about 47.5 hours on the way back (longer layover in Milwaukee).

It looks like other people are starting to preferentially link to my stuff on PeerTube instead of my stuff on YouTube. This is good.
