The wonderfully creative Jadzia Axelrod (@Planetx) recently shared a very personal and ultimately adorable non- :

@klara Hmm... perhaps a tennis/golf/sun visor might do the trick? I saw a few priced between US$5 and ridiculous at: Good luck finding something that works.


I’ve enjoyed using . It supports multiple accounts, lets me bookmark multiple instances, and is rock-solid stable. Switching back and forth between accounts and instances is a breeze. Unfortunately, if it has ways to add alternative text to uploaded images, I’ve yet to find one. It has a “dark mode”.

I’ve had to remove from my gizmo, because, while it has a gorgeous, clean, customizable interface, it’s been crashing —a lot. In a few revisions, I’ll give it another try.

@craicem Since you typed “listen”: I myself haven’t tried them, but there’s a family of podcasts called “ with Silk” that play sounds of the natural world, someone reading poetry in an “ inducing” voice, etc... There’s also a called “Sleep Whispers”. There are probably others. Perhaps one of them will help.

Or you could just work out until you collapse...

Good luck.

@irina Hmm... The only drink that comes to mind is “Izze”. It’s basically fruit juice and fizz, with some sweetness coming from just the fruit itself; over ice, the sweetness is even more subtle. It comes in little ~8oz cans about the size of mini-cokes, and it’s not cheap, but the different flavors are interesting: clementine, pomegranate, peach, blackberry, etc...

Good luck finding something to get you through .

Guess who’s podcasts are kinda-sorta working again?

From the ”, a portrait of out man and professional boxer, Patricio “Cacahuate” Manuel:

@darkmirror Addendum: No luck typing in the feed by hand. As unlikely as it sounds, perhaps there’s something genuinely wrong with all the feeds?

Howdy Fediverse! I’d like to a or two:

Has anyone been having problems with the feeds for any podcasts? Were you able to resolve them? How?

For each NPR-related to which I subscribe, both the English & Spanish ones, I’ll see new episodes appear in my podcatcher, but said episodes never actually stream nor download. I’ve removed & added back individual episodes, then whole shows/feeds in my app, to no avail. Haven’t yet typed the feed in by hand. Ideas?

Did you know there's a proposed logo for the #Fediverse?

(Unfortunately I can't find the creator's details, if anyone knows please reply!)

29 years ago today, Steve Jackson games was raided by the US Secret service. A company that published RPG books about a fictional universe with hackers in it was enough to have the owner of the company arrested & all their assets seized at gunpoint. That's how almost as far the moral panic about hackers, post 'wargames' went without organized resistance.

@hafnia @CitySquirrel We’d use “make a uey”, and occasionally, for some reason, “pull a bootleg”.


I don’t use the phrase myself, but perhaps it’s a contemporary version of that immortal line, heard just before the third hook on the 1990 classic ...

... or it’s probably just about bad driving.
