The power strip that the radio-alarm-clock-that-no-one-remembers-buying is plugged into got unplugged at some point last month. This was noticed and rectified at exactly 1:00.
Thus the blinking display that has been one hour late for three weeks.
Current aesthetic: waiting for November for the problem to solve itself.

Spoke too soon, this is a critical overload of cutscene. Def still in tutorial zone.

Weeding the in-laws front flowerbeds and digging out some bulbs that my wife loathes. There's this one bush I've been working under that sheds little off-white specks every time it's brushed against.
I've been assuming they were flower bits or dried leaf or something.
Just looked at one up close? Looks like either dead spiderlings or moults. Honestly not sure which would be worse, as my back is apparently covered in them.

They really streamlined that intro, didn't they? Only a couple of cryptic choices, one platform, and a tutorial "boss".
Only took 40 minutes to get to a save point in this one. 2 took like an hour and a half.

I've the greatest respect for live interpreters of Trump speeches.
Although it definitely gives him an unearned veneer of respectability when his bullshit is relayed by a deep, articulate voice which is smoothing over all his little asides into a coherent flow.
@Aleums I'll take the pigeon if you end up with one? Hermes is a good bird name

@diodelass I just assume anyone with the hands, equipment, and motivation to catch and band is the type who deeply cares about the best interests of the individual birds and larger populations.
(And I just like close-ups of baffled/irritated little feather balls on my timeline anyway)
as Voltaire said, "I may disagree with what you say, but i will defend to the death your right to recieve free server space, free bandwidth, free promotion, and in some cases ad revenue share, from YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter in order to spread your abhorrent views"
wait he didn't say that? fuck
@8track @jacethechicken maybe not the leggy house horrors, but anywhere south of Canada has some species. The smaller ones are hard to spot unless you like to flip rocks though. They zoom into cover too fast to see and top out at an inch or two.
Millipedes and isopods are too sluggish to hide, so they're easier to find.
@8track correction: centipedes, in my experience, tend to "zip"
Forgot I got lazy and just dumped loose tea in this mug with no bag.
It's a pretty heavy full-leaf black, so no worries about floating bits, but I just tried to gulp down the dregs without thinking.
Surreptitiously spitting an entire mouthful of leaves back into my mug like a labrador that's just discovered they don't actually like spinach.
Know what I did not find? As I apparently do not actually own a pair? Wire strippers that'd work on the itsy little internals. I have spent two hours breaking every nail and stabbing myself trying to strip these little fucks while keeping them in the jacket.
And I need to do each end of each little twisted pair on each stretch of cable, without cutting any of them short.
Fuck it all. Black is classy.
Didn't have time to decorate my grad cap this week, but I did find myself with a fistful of LEDs, and more arduinos than I know what to do with.
Tried to get clever tonight. Writing the code to cycle through several modes on a button press literally took 10 minutes. First pass soldering took like half an hour, but the only loose leads I had on hand were hella bright and it looked awful.
Then I found an old 20 ft coil of black cat 5 with a break in the middle.
This is my web drip. It keeps me happily sedated.
