DBlume thinks you rock, dblumebuddy.
DBlume asks dblumebuddy , how old are you now?

sjonsvenson I had forgotten

2018-07-06 DBlume shares A puzzle on my son's Father's Day card to me reminded me why I like developing code.
2018-05-16 DBlume shares I don't know how to waste time on the internet anymo.... What do you guys think?
DBlume says I dunno, it seems like there's some truth to it.
sjonsvenson It isn't all new and exciting anymore. Everybody is on the web so being on-line is nothing to impress your classmates with.
sjonsvenson Writing a program that did something interesting or typing in some HTML that actually worked used to be impressive. A show off to your friends. Now those friends make some better code doing some clicks here or there and walk away yawning.
sjonsvenson Worst of all, you post a nice pic of your cat and the day later you find 5687 replies with cuter cat pics . . . sigh
davidd thinks this line is spot on: "Where once we’d had a rich ecosystem of extremely stupid and funny sites on which we might procrastinate, we now had only Twitter and Facebook."
davidd is still on Flickr, where he was friends with sjonsvenson and DBlume and pastilla... and Nari and Zannah and lots of other people who are not active there anymore.
davidd was commenting on this very topic on LiveJournal today... where he was friends with sjonsvenson (who is still there, posting every day) and DBlume and pastilla and Nari and Zannah and lot of other people who are not active there anymore.
davidd manages to waste plenty of time online, and has fun doing so, but it's more of a challenge these days. Most of the forums of which I was a member are gone. But there are still a few specialty forums, which, on a good day, have up to half a dozen new posts!
davidd Yeah, half a dozen. Remember when specialty forums got HUNDREDS of posts a day?
davidd does not work with computers, so maybe it's easier for me to have fun online. Or maybe I'm stuck in a paleozoic version of the online universe.
davidd is mega-, rather than micro-, blogging at this point with these comments, isn't he? Anyway, that line about the guy becoming his dad when he found himself typing news sites into his search bar was funny, too. Except, dude, your dad would probably pick up a newspaper, not type in a web search.
davidd says anyway... hi! How're ya doin'? What's your online hangout of choice these days? (I was trying to remember the other day where you said you post your militant humanist diatribes... or something like that. I'm sure they are both insightful and amusing.)
davidd says and, of course, PHONES! Phones are the "fun" online time-waster of today. Nobody types searches into desktop browers anymore, do they? At least, none of the cool people. Time-wasting fun is now in the palm of your hand.
davidd thinks old school BBS forums would be a pain to read and to navigate on a phone-sized screen. (See comment on other Plurk about eyeglasses.... :-( )
sjonsvenson phones are not good for web-ing . . . Well, my Nokia 6020 isn't :-P
pastilla says I do not own a cell phone anymore. Imagine that.
DBlume says I still have my cell phone, but I intentionally deleted Facebook and Plurk from it.
DBlume says Our dads were fortunate to experience the serendipity of unexpectedly interesting articles in the newspaper.
DBlume says websites are hellbent on surfacing posts that they think you'll engage with, so it's always the same bait. Not something completely out of your domain.
2018-05-03 DBlume shares Simply Brutal. Be sure to click through to the Gallery. The best stuff is hidden in the gallery.
pastilla says always good to see you, DBlume (One of my father's funniest lectures featured architect Arthur Erickson - king of "brutalism") Here are shots of the Simon Fraser University buildings Erickson designed, under construction (where early BG Caprica scenes were filmed). SFU's Architecture - Archives and Records Management - Simon Fras...
pastilla says my dad despised "art over function" architecture. Quietly and pettily he collected photos & anecdotes from people who struggled to live and work in AE's buildings- which were invariably dark, depressing concrete tombs with every heating, plumbing, electrical and structural problem you could imagine.
pastilla says (but shhhh I always though his buildings were very cool-looking)
DBlume says pastilla, Ha, I completely understand that trade-off. Buildings I'd love to visit but wouldn't want work/live there.
davidd says this is like the "old school" conversations I remember, from, like, at SparkleSystemSix! If you guys are "alive" again on Plurk, I'm gonna have to check in here more often!
davidd thinks that UFO house is epic!
2018-04-02 DBlume says I wrote up a little history on the evolution of my user-pic from 2D pixel art to the current voxel art version.
pastilla says OK, that started my day off on the right note. Nicely done.
sjonsvenson B-)
davidd says and your updated avatar was inspired by President Trump! Your creativity was jump-started by President Trump! Evidence that President Trump is, indeed, making America great again! (LOL)
davidd says yeah, I need eyeglasses to read, too. That is, strong ones for reading, and less strong for distance. :'-(
2018-02-06 DBlume shares this month my first website turns 21 years old! Get a job, website!
sjonsvenson Bit recalculated in internet time it's time for a well earned retirement
pastilla says awwwwww the nose bite picture . . .
davidd says HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Now you can turn it into a drinking blog!
davidd wonders if your web site... or any stand-alone personal web sites... gets many visitors anymore? Facebook has kind of driven the personal blog, and blogging sites like LiveJournal, into extinction.

sjonsvenson wondering whether dblume did
DBlume (LOL)
2017-08-28 davidd has been "internet lazy," largely ignoring Plurk, Flickr, and... well, mostly that. My other online haunts have closed. I waste a lot of time at Instagram, mostly just looking.
sjonsvenson welcome back to the real world . . .
sjonsvenson I mean the time-sink world
pastilla says I'm not on instagram often -- Plurk & Flickr are ghost towns (except for Sjon who is as dedicated, busy and interesting as always) I miss the old days when we were all together in one place.
sjonsvenson Lifejournal is a Russian ghost town as well these days. I am keeping it alive cause I linked my LJ mail-address to other sites and shops etc.
DBlume says We all need a little time in the real world.
ChrisHalliwell (wave)
davidd says HI GUYS!!!! So excited to see some familiar faces!
davidd says dblume: As little time in the real world as possible, please and thank you! :-D
davidd says sjonsvenson: Yes! Yes! I miss my time-sinks! And my friends in the time-sink whirlpool!
davidd says ryan_h: You're still here too! YAY!
davidd says pastilla: Flickr? Oh yeah, that place, the one you suddenly abandoned! ;-)
davidd says pastilla: Flickr became a lot less of a draw when you left. Several other people left or simply stopped posting, too, and my enthusiasm for the site waned considerably. Plus, real life and stuff... yeah.
ChrisHalliwell davidd i never left. (haha)
davidd ryan_h: :-D

DBlume says Even the hand-held camera is a nice touch.
DBlume says You can see where the tops of the cards on the table have been subtly cut so as not to visually clip the cards on the floor. Nice practical effect.

2016-12-26 DBlume says You guys! I've got an idea for my next stupid micro site! Stuck wheels are beginning to turn again.
♥.(.zannah.).♥ yay!!!
DBlume says Wow, there's a lot of potential web frameworks I could learn. Might be good for me, but I'm not so interested. I'm more interested in just making the thing I was to see.
DBlume asks If I make a new website, do I have to add a popover that appears after 30 seconds asking you to join its mailing list? I'd rather not, but if I have to...
♥.(.zannah.).♥ NO. JUST SAY NO.
DBlume says I dunno, based on browsing around, it appears to be a new requirement. Aside: Create a new fiddle - JSFiddle rocks.
DBlume Here's a sneak peak, without any context: How to share the last slice of pizza fairly with someone who wants all the crust, with a straight cut.
DBlume says It's not done yet. The math gets harder when the cut intersects the arc instead of the straight edge...
♥.(.zannah.).♥ ... is this an issue that happens a lot at your house?
DBlume says My son asked the trigonometry question. My internal answer was, "that's a little site that needs to be created!" I was interested in how much the cut would move according to the angle of the slice.
DBlume says So I made the thing (so far), and got to see. I'll keep updating it occasionally. Then I'll upload the source to github too. (The source is the webpage itself, of course, but github will show the evolution.)
DBlume says I know you guys were worried about this, so I thought I'd allay your concerns. Yes, I figured out where to cut the pizza even with pretty wide angles.
♥.(.zannah.).♥ ...
♥.(.zannah.).♥ i'm going to say that maybe that's...not the most efficient way to, you know. cut the pizza when it's that big.
sjonsvenson wondering what happens with square pizzas (thinking)
DBlume says This was important science. So I've open-sourced it: dblume/pizza-slice
sjonsvenson () plenty of places bake square pizzas but sell tips of them. The don't do it right though, they cut the tips at similar angles -same as on a round pizza- but that way the tips are not all the same size. I supose you have a formula to cut tips of the same size.
sjonsvenson (they are selling the tips locally and cutting squares for take-away)
<3 2016-12-20 sjonsvenson a dblume style reply

DBlume says Let's say they're both round, so the nebula's 2-d area is π light years, and the shadow's is 100,000,000 π light years.

DBlume says They didn't make a big deal of it, except for one to say, "this may be sufficiently impactful to web developers that we should do an "intent to ship" for it".

2016-04-27 DBlume says Happy-making: This weekend, I did something (for fun) that requires some full-stack technical know-how, and the community appreciated it.
DBlume says It's pretty much a custom data visualizer that makes life easier for those interested in such data. Narilka might appreciate the thing.
Raevyns Ooh. Link?
DBlume says Sadly, proprietary. But I can share one of the JavaScript tips. I link from the visualization to an intra-page location to the source data text file.
DBlume says "But David. There's no such think as an anchor in a text file. So you can't have intra-page links to text files."
DBlume says So what you do is calculate the line-height of the text file, and use JavaScript's window.scroll(lineheight * number_of_lines) to get to the line that sourced the datapoint.
DBlume says You actually link to an html page that uses GET params for text file, and line number, that make a XMLHttpRequest to retrieve the text file, and from there, scroll to the line of interest.
DBlume says Combine that with some fun Python and HTML5, and you end up with a product that visualizes what the Internet of Things is doing in your household. The fun is that you can now dive straight down from the GUI.
DBlume says That is, if you're the type that likes to tinker in the IoT.
DBlume says I already share my stats page, this would be for something where a graphical visualization makes sense. Wish I could be more specific. BTW, delicious.com has been borked for days.
DBlume says Speaking of delicious's death, scroll down a bit at that page to see the @-messages. This is exactly why I have bots make my backups.
Raevyns @.@
DBlume says Oh, and speaking of Delicious's death, the last blog post I made in February was about the extraordinarily poor decision they made to embed ads into user activity feeds.

pastilla says he also told me there were black creatures that lived underneath outhouses (eating all the stuff under there) & I needed to watch out because they had bitten his bum once or twice before.
pastilla says what about you, sjonsvenson ? Were you deceived in a charming or tyrannical way by a sibling/parent?
Narilka says My sibling told me if I swallowed a watermelon seed, a watermelon would grow in my tummy! On the other hand, she totally helped me believe in Santa a little bit longer, which I appreciate now. (heart_beat)

2015-12-29 sjonsvenson still strugling with Firefox. It just doesn't want to load anything from the internet (nor from my local disk) ... without showing error or anything ... whatever I do the tab title changes to 'new tab' and the
sjonsvenson address line clears itself.
CaleAlcott weird, never heard of that, im using Firefox for ages and never happened something like this, is maybe a firewall or anti virus programm interferring? Really no clue sorry
pastilla asks if this looks helpful. I had another similar problem & this fixed it. I also updated Java whle I was at it. Firefox repeatedly opens empty tabs or windows after you click on...
pastilla says lthough I am not sure you can do the "Refresh Firefox features" without connecting to the internet or your local disk?
sjonsvenson I'll be checke then out later. I am now back in Opera . The only problem is that some sites (glares at Flickr) only like to run in Firefox or Chrome or IE (or Safari).
sjonsvenson shares Checked it out and did the refresh. (Plurk Paste)
pastilla says are you kidding me? It deleted all your bookmarks???
pastilla is so sorry. Did not have that happen myself!!
sjonsvenson all bookmarks gone, all passwords gone, all settings gone ... only the problem that wasn't gone :-(
pastilla WTH? That is crazy.
sjonsvenson Nah, it's a "oh, it says it will save everything. So what can go wrong?" ... kind of Murphy invitation.
sjonsvenson But I know mister Murphy, I did make a backup of my bookmarks first. so now I can use them in Opera and Chrome if I need. while I try to get the Fox back on it's legs
pastilla says I was going to ask if you had a backup; but didn't want to make you feel worse (if you ddn't) (LOL)

ninjanuity yeah, losing RJD and Lemmy is pretty rough. If Bruce goes, I'll lose my shit.

2015-12-27 DBlume shares We replaced my old Raspberry Pi with a new one. To ensure it is doing its job, I've set up this War Games tribute site.
DBlume says If you're on a computer with a keyboard, go click on it. If you remember War Games, you might be amused.
Vanlal Well, I couldn't get WOPR to start a Thermonuclear War or even a game of chess. :-(
DBlume says Sorry! In real life, these things happen in baby steps. I was amused I could even get the fake CLI working.
2015-12-26 davidd shares Mattel EMEA
pastilla wshes I could have nurtured this hobby with MeiMei.
DBlume says Imagine you couldn't get your kids into Star Wars. :'-(
pastilla asks . . . why did we have kids again?
pastilla says . . . oh, yeah, someone said it would be fulfilling.

2015-12-23 DBlume asks Narilka if she's still interested in data analysis and visualization like this?
Narilka says yes!!
davidd loves the dblume and Narilka tech topics; they're so delightfully arcane!
2015-12-21 alteregoliz Finished one bathroom door.
M ™ says lol cool
potato boyo Very nice!
un3wl33t Awesome!
DBlume asks does the inside look much bigger now?
alteregoliz If only.
alteregoliz Thanks, guys!
alteregoliz Boatloads of projects like these are why I don't see you all very much these days. :-( Can't wait till I get my whole house in order.
alteregoliz How are you doing in your place, pastilla?
pastilla loves this.
pastilla says nothing this wonderful!! The Escher stairs are a work in progress but we have a toilet that works really well now, some blinds that go up & down and a kitchen sink that no longer smells of decayed dog fur.
alteregoliz Progress!

sjonsvenson looks like a whole series of zannah books (thinking)
2015-12-11 DBlume shares I'm so seriously considering this Pan shirt.
DBlume says I wonder if Kurii would be interested, pastilla? I realize that Kogepan has nothing to do with Everything Becomes F, but the shirt is still cool.
DBlume says "Remove before washing." "Wear with pants."
pastilla says I shall ask him.
pastilla says and thanks for the care tips as well. Made me think of (repost):

DBlume says When I didn't see it this morning, I actually went and asked The Atlantic if it was still coming this year.
karma medic says Check out photo 1 of the calendar!
DBlume says Yay! You spun up! (cozy)
pastilla says hi to dblumebuddy !!! Karma Medic reminds you, you remind me, I remind my science-y RL friends on Facebook . . . thank you for making me look good.
pastilla says since this year's calendar starts off with cats staring at a big old phallus , I predict this year's calendar will be the greatest ever . . .

2015-11-20 sjonsvenson why do I always thing about dblume when I see thing like this (thinking) ...
DBlume says Because it was awesome?
sjonsvenson yes, you are ;-)
CaleAlcott lol
pastilla :-D
Loli (LOL)
2015-11-18 davidd is developing UrbEx street cred: two of the twelve photos in this "Abandoned Places in Hawaii" article are mine: 12 Abandoned Places In Hawaii That Nature Is Reclaiming
DBlume says At first, I misread that as "UberX".
pastilla thinks yours are so nicely composed
sjonsvenson I first misread it as "two abandoned places are mine" (woot) ...
2015-11-18 davidd Did y'all receive yours yet?
pastilla chose to wait for your report(s) on its usefulness or lack thereof.
DBlume shares I got mine!
davidd DBlume - we carry the same model Swiss Army Knife!
DBlume says I'd be surprised! Mine is the Rogue. SAKWiki | Rogue
davidd Oh, wait, no... yours is cooler!
davidd I carry an (obviously well used) Ambassador. Hey, our tabletops are similar, too!
DBlume says The way I see it, you can't have too many cap lifters. I don't know why they discontinued the Rogue!
pastilla says several children must have eaten it and died, DBlume.
DBlume says Ah, you may be thinking of its near-anagram monster, the grue, which eats the children in the dark when their nightlights go out.
2015-11-16 DBlume shares Baby Pictures to Nuclear Launch Codes. I realize that my geekiness is usually one step beyond.
DBlume says I have to share files between Linux, Windows, and OS X, on air-gapped networks. So I manually encrypt the personal files on my USB stick, so I can retrieve them from any platform.
DBlume says And yes, I do leave secret messages for attackers. Would you expect anything less?
davidd Do you insert items like this in the code you develop at work? Okay, I know you can't answer that. But we know... we know.
DBlume says it's harder to get personal Easter Eggs into production code nowadays what with all the code reviews.
davidd Harder... but not impossible? (LOL)
DBlume says The trick is to leave hooks for live refreshes, even if only via data files. Unfortunately, it could be the sort of thing that gets called out as being a "back door".
2015-11-15 DBlume says I really love Forestdweller's current userpic. Best viewed on her profile page.
Raevyns Grackle Kaw KAW!*
pastilla says so true. I noticed it the other day & was similarly impressed.
pastilla thinks Forestdweller is particularly good at sleek designs with a bit of dark sparkle.
Raevyns Guys. I'm blushing.
2015-11-11 DBlume shares Happy Pocky Day, everyone!
KiltedMonkey says looks around I have no Pocky.
DBlume says if you were on the spunky little team that's beating Google, Amazon and Apple, you would.
DBlume says ( We're happy with a couple of good reviews, because it's an intense market out there, and the other guys are world-dominating giants. )
davidd Mosaic is still around?
2015-11-10 DBlume says Well, I'm delighted by Starbuck's seasonal tomato sauce colored cups. https://scontent.cdninstagram.com/hphotos-xpf1/t51.2885-15/e35/12071091_898289290220111_1650377831_n.jpg
DBlume says You'd have to click through to the link at the top left of the image to see my caption at Instagram. That's the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
pastilla says so awesome I just shared it with someone who has Starbuckian higher-echelon connections . . .
sjonsvenson I thought that FSM stood for Flying Starbucks Monster
2015-11-10 ninjanuity made me think of our recent trip to Canada: https://i.imgur.com/FhJySB0.jpg
Morskittar says Well, that explains why they thought we were nefarious criminals on the way in.
ninjanuity should've asked for a flu shot.
♥.(.zannah.).♥ you already got one.
EvilCouch Get two! Abuse that free health care!
DBlume says That's ridiculous. All Americans know that flu shots are just a plot by the CDC to give kids autism.
Morskittar says omg I hadn't even considered. Double flu shots would mean... DOUBLE AUTISM!!!11
♥.(.zannah.).♥ double negative has led to proof positive!
2015-11-09 DBlume says In a world without Men's Pocky, I'm forced to search for Dark Chocolate Pepero or Pejoy for this year's Pocky Day.
DBlume says My wife is out securing the 11/11 assets right now.
♥.(.zannah.).♥ I read this in the movie trailer guy's voice.
♥.(.zannah.).♥ Don LaFontaine.
2015-11-08 DBlume says it's probably weird that when the cute little trapped bacteria says, "What is happening?" at 2:02 in this video, I heard it in zannah's voice. The Immune System Explained I – Bacteria Infection
DBlume says there's also, "killing stuff was the best part".
EvilCouch That was a lot of fun.

davidd was fished in. (blush)
EvilCouch says Hehehe.
DBlume says Actually, I did read that exact line in some technical documentation today. I only changed the link. Bad hypertext is a pet peeve of mine.
pastilla says I clicked. Because I trusted you.
pastilla says Which Giant Movie Monster Are You?
pastilla ^^ please take this quiz so we can all understand what kind of monster could clickbait their friends thusly
davidd pastilla - I got Mothra: "Powerful but kind of lazy." What will DBlume come up with, I wonder?
Vanlal I'm King Kong
pastilla
pastilla ^^ I filled everything in for him . . .
DBlume says "clickbait‽" I beg to differ. Mine was clear, concise, and couldn't have been more accurate.
DBlume says Also, Zimbio? Me? Really, pastilla?
pastilla says mwah ha ha ha ha
2015-11-06 davidd Feeling ignorant: what is this kitchen cabinet space for? My hypothesis is cookbooks, but I figure some of my sophisticated Plurkfriends will know for sure.

KiltedMonkey But that seems awfully tall for plates
DBlume Bad children.
girlintheworld you put them there after washing and to store, enough air circulation means they dry right there (my guess pre-dishwasher idea?)
girlintheworld or big serving plates and large ceramic flatware?
davidd Thank you, everyone, and thanks for the link!
Narilka says cookie sheets, pizza pans, etc. Obviously, you probably shouldn't take my word for it, since I only cook things in a microwave, a full turkey dinner, and sketti.
pastilla says that's where you attach the "wife-chain"
Narilka says pastilla wins this thread.
DBlume says Aw, c'mon! "Bad children" gets some points.
KiltedMonkey pastilla:
DBlume says Here's how we use ours:
davidd likes DBlume's suggestion. So did the oft-mentioned spouse!
sjonsvenson I would say plate dry rack to but then the space under it is not OK. maybe they installed it upside down (thinking)
2015-11-06 DBlume says Excuse me, The Atlantic, she's not just "a person in a costume". She's Black Rock Shooter's Strength.
davidd The sorry state of journalism today.
2015-11-06 davidd was looking at DBlume's recent Plurk, which led to Reading about The Vast Wasteland speech, which led to Newton Minow, which led to SS Minnow, which led to current whereabouts of SS Minnow, which led...
davidd ... to current owner of the boat, which led to River Bend Resort on Vancouver Island, which led to a page on luxury yurt accommodations, which resulted in practical ideas for fixing up my house.
davidd Morning NOT wasted after all! (LOL)
DBlume says Ha! You should follow zannah's watched YouTube history.
2015-11-06 DBlume shares Sucks to be a Millennial.
DBlume quotes, "What does a Millennial Fight Club look like?" I can't think of anything that'd be good.
pastilla says the insight on "Gen Z" is extremely interesting. In potentially a sci-fi sort of way.
pastilla says ithe Gen Z comment makes me think of this, actually Blade Runner (2/10) Movie CLIP - Somebody Else's Mem...
davidd "I have never felt truly Millennial or Gen X," he says; and I have never felt truly Gen X or Boomer. So what about us Transgenerationals? (Must be careful to type that correctly.)
davidd wonders if every generation has a confusing relationship with popular media? The Vast Wasteland? The Media Is The Message? The Hidden Persuaders? Seduction of the Innocent?
davidd says and the fact that international... INTER-FREAKIN-NATIONAL... news, including local news here, ran the story about an Australian teen deleting her Instagram account is nuts.
davidd asks where was the coverage of pastilla deleting her Flickr account? Oh, wait, I can answer that: a) Flickr is totally who-cares, and B-) no bikini photos.
davidd says Heh! That sunglasses icon was supposed to be "b" with a parenthesis, but the icon works! B-)
pastilla says (evil_grin)
2015-11-03 DBlume shares I don't know if any of you have been reading Camp Weedonwantcha, but the current arc has been amazing.

2015-11-02 DBlume says in the nearly-a-year since I've installed Dark Sky, today is the first day I got to see it with a Dark Sky! It rained!!
DBlume shares There's enough rain to wash the dirt off the car! The local news is probably announcing the apocalypse.
davidd How many years has it been?
DBlume says The car is grey! Not very different from dirt colored, but at least now we know for sure!
sjonsvenson
Vanlal Apocalypse?! It's been averted by all the plastic balls you've spread over your water bodies. Hasn't it?
DBlume says You know about that? All our McDonalds' playlands are so sad without their ball pits anymore. Nothing left but the used drug needles at the bottom.
Vanlal I sometimes don't know when you're joking @ dblume. (LOL)
2015-10-31 DBlume says Yay! halophoenix and I both bought in to Google Photos for our photo de-clutteri...!
pastilla says yes, but halophoenix does it with his sexeh radio voice (LOL)
pastilla says BTW, you both inspired me greatly. I am doing a Big Flickr to Google transfer right now.
DBlume says Keep in mind that they serve different purposes. Flickr is social by default. With Google Photos, it's private by default. You have to explicitly share, and they're not otherwise discoverable.
pastilla says right. But Flickr sort of destroyed the social aspect long ago.
halophoenix says (blush) You guys!
halophoenix says But yeah, I don't think anyone has this perfect yet, and Google's uploader needs some work, but they've got the best tool right now, so....
halophoenix says That's where my chips are. :-D Glad you guys liked the show, by the way! It was definitely a process. XD

ChrisHalliwell (woot)
sjonsvenson (thinking) I have done a few IKEAs and never needed a hammer for them
pastilla says see: private plurk for update on my closets.
davidd pastilla: can't see it. :'-(
pastilla says it's on the "tired of being mad" one
pastilla says synopsis:
<3 2015-10-26 davidd Shadow-cat
2015-10-24 davidd So much to do; not sure where to begin. Feeling overwhelmed. Annoyed because stupid printer won't work; that was supposed to be a quick five minute task. Here we are an hour later....
DBlume asks Are you checking items off of a list? That helps me.
pastilla is also like DBlume in this: things on a list trigger a DO IT response for me . . . although I have to say with my current move there have been so many obstacles (situations like
pastilla a printer that doesn't work, or the movers didn't put the cord in the box, etc.) preventing finishing the list, it got to a point where just saying 7 minutes in each room doing random tasks was a better option.
pastilla says for us, not having closets or shelves has left our floors like this (as we unpack boxes to find something & make piles):
davidd dblume: pastilla: oh yes, I make lists. And each item has sub-items to check off. And the lack of shelves and closets is a serious problem here, too. In fact....
davidd ... I'm starting to think our Plurk friends who believe pastilla and davidd are the same person might be right! Stepping over piles, weaving between tottering towers, and endless assembly of IKEA components!
davidd needs to make another IKEA trek next week. Tall shelf units would not fit in car and the "$59 and up" delivery charge would be $650 to where I live. Gonna give the trailer a true long-distance trial!
girlintheworld what will gas cost?
davidd @ chicawhappa: about thirty dollars for gas, round trip.
girlintheworld oh!

davidd Agrees!
anisoptera So you just saw The Martian, then?
2015-10-19 davidd More rain in an hour than this place usually gets in a month. Not funny, and not fun.
DBlume asks how the place held up? Leaks, new issues discovered?
pastilla says suddenly I can relate to your life again.
sjonsvenson so, you're not in California
davidd The storm supposedly crossed Southern California before dropping a deluge on Arizona and Utah. A few leaks, but fewer than expected and fairly minor.
girlintheworld but that's great, now you know where all the weak-spots are!
davidd chicawhappa: That's one way to look at it. Turns out the leaks are only an issue during torrential rain, which supposedly are not common here. Supposedly. (annoyed)

2015-10-11 DBlume says it's conceding defeat to progress, but I've finally upgraded my 13yo Daddy Blog to a responsive theme.
DBlume says I kept screenshots of the old desktop-first themes, and link to them at the bottom of that post, so I could remember the way we thought about design before the iPhone.
DBlume says ...and now I'm resizing the window when I visit many of my friends' blogs, and they mostly have responsive themes already! I'm really late to the party. (Of course, many of them have started after the iPhone.)
2015-10-11 DBlume says David's Dead Man's Switch has been triggered. This is real, but almost certainly a false positive. More at David's Place

sjonsvenson (heart)
2015-10-06 davidd needs to start feeling significantly more enthusiastic about these necessary repair projects.
DBlume appreciates the positive language you used. "Significantly more enthusiastic" sounds so much better than "this is getting tiresome".
sjonsvenson even more enthusiastic then you already are ... wow ... (woot)
davidd sjonsvenson: yeah... something like that.
