A suitcase full of books: Kafka, Camus, Achebe, Ibn Battuta, Calvino, Cervantes, Moller, Eco, Mosley, and Manguel.

That feeling when you checkout a library book, start reading it, and have a burning desire to annotate the book and underline numerous passages. I'd imagine there's a word for this in some language.

Best thing I've done for my website recently: implemented a bit of javascript. When you type <ctrl+s> it will toggle off or one the stylesheet.

Looking at my website without stylesheets has given lots of insight into the semantic markup which in turn helps with accessibility.

One thing that I know I need to do is go back and add ALT tags to images. I have some but not reliably. And in cases where there isn't an ALT tag, determine if it should be ARIA hidden.

Feeling out of sorts, so I chopped some vegetables and started cooking and listening to Black Sabbath. Feeling more human and connected.

@maenad Nice. I haven't followed New Mexicon all that much (as its not yet been feasible). I'm in northern Indiana (near Notre Dame), and with 4 children ages 17 to 22, it's been full-time fledging of adultlings.

Yes there is still a free #RSS reader that is web based.

Try Privus Reader - it's free and comes with a mobile-friendly UI.

Spent a bit of time adding some javascript to my site. This time, I added hotkeys. I used the MousetrapJS ( to bind keys. My favorite: `ctrl+s` will toggle my site's CSS (something I found myself doing with regularity in Firefox).

I documented some changes in my CHANGELOG -

Tired: buying the latest edition of dungeons and dragons for like 50$ a book

Wired: buying older editions of d&d at second hand stores

Inspired: reading about d20 ttrpg systems and making your own fucking d&d

As the spouse/partner of a small shop owner, everyday I come to our store, I am prepared for all the odd tasks. Today it's inventory and getting change for the drawer.

Books I Read (or Started to Read) in 2018 // Take on Rules

In 2019, I completed reading twenty-two books. This feels inadequate.

My step-daughter, who turned 18 today and seeks to be a professional theater actor, asked me to help her open a retirement account because in her words "it's on me to save for my retirement." I have complex emotions about this: "Wow, she's thinking ahead more than I ever did." and "Fuck the very sentiment of personal retirement savings as advocated by capitalist neo-liberal society always ready to decry austerity measures." and "Why is the US such a shitty hellscape of deluded faux idealism? "

squatting opportunity in #Rotterdam in "a neighborhood called #Tweebosbuurt with a bit less than 600 flats "

"We settled here without really realizing what an opportunity it was : it is extremely simple to settle here. At the moment, with only 3 squats the police is out of her depth. The company in charge of the destruction is not « on the square » but has no efficient way of organizing to illegaly evict us : they are not enough and honestly no one expected any form of resistance here.

We are seeking for people who would like to live here, and if we’re a bit more, then we think it is really easy to impose a power balance in such a place, not only to impede or even cease the destruction but also to potentially « conquer » by squatting a whole neighborhood in one of the largest european metropolis. I believe what’s going on here has a huge potential to be significant. "

I've been building a Facebook Events style event organizing system for the Fediverse. It's based on the simple, open source, privacy-respecting event organizing tool

The attached video is a work-in-progress preview and shows compatibility with Mastodon. My hope is to get it working with lots of software, including stuff like Friendica that supports events and calendars.

Just finished Ebony Elizabeth Thomas's "The Dark Fantastic". As I got started, I had to frequently stop and walk around, to let the depth of what I was reading sink in. And take root. Two years ago, I committed to reading at least 10 books written by women. This year, I'm committing to reading at least 10 fantasy/sci-fi books by non-white people.

@kensanata Face it, we are a society of sorcerers, completely unprepared for life without magic.
