Hoping to get out with this at the weekend and study Betelgeuse. Not had a weekend to myself since the new year...

Also, happy

I do like Mastodon, but it has been 6 months since joining and none of my social circle has shown up on here. I see lots of moaning about Facebook & Twitter being awful, but I don't see a mass exodus jumping ship to the Fediverse. Curious...

Not posted on here for a while (largely because not much has happened), so I'm going to return with some dick waving. I've upgraded my USB Podcaster with an XLR Procaster. My word it takes a lot of gain to make it shine, but it sounds great! That is all...

I regret not buying a few more of these now. A GlusterFS cluster is the way forward as a home NAS replacement.

PSA: If you've not been listening to '40 Years of Goth' over at Mixcloud, then what are you waiting for? Head over there and enjoy a trip down memory lane: mixcloud.com/KittyLectro/

You know what's more trouble than it's worth? External GPU connected via a Thunderbolt 3 port.

Lots of fannying around to get it working and not completely stable once it does finally work. Next time I'm going with a mini ITX setup rather than a NUC + external GPU.

Testing the Android app, nothing to see here...

Return of the Empire by Horror Vacui


In my opinion, this is their finest work. Exceptionally good from Italy

Distance by Rendez-Vous


Imagine if The Clash went off in a more wave & post-punk inspired direction.

folks: Has anybody taken PrimeOS for a spin? Any idea why the Date of birth and Gender fields are a mandatory part of the post install setup?

I work for a San Diego genetics company and for the most part it's pretty good. There are more video conferences and meetings than I'd like, but I'm remote managed so the options are pretty thin. We're quite different culturally, though.

If you don't mind me asking, what made you quit the corporate world? Had enough?

@WorldWideWebWizard Just discovered your blog. It's excellent, thank you for writing it!

Goth, Biotech sysadmin, lives in Norwich UK. Interested in Goth Rock, Deathrock, Post Punk and some metal.

Find me at Tomorrow's Ghosts festival in Whitby every 6 months.

Looking for like-minded folk to talk Goth, tech, gaming, beer, football, astronomy, martial arts or anything else that isn't politics-driven.

1st day on Mastodon. Hoping for a much better experience than I had over at the bird-themed one...
