Set up a Minecraft realm for the kid and friends, and one of them just described my first night base cut into a hill as "efficient dad style." The shade!

On the one hand, setting up a single-user Pleroma instance was fun, and it's cool to finally use a domain name I've been sitting on for years. On the other, do I really wanna migrate off here to a ghost town and commit to maintaining it?

Moldova answering the question nobody asked about what a PWEI/Saw Doctors mashup infringing the Ramones' copyright would sound like.

Got to play with my for the first time just now, kindof a mixed bag but the potential is definitely there:

- doesn't have full support for my building fob yet, but reads it and other NFC cards perfectly well (no joy getting Amiibo dumps working tho)
- IR emulation also good, a full library of remotes available for upload
- USB rubberducky was fun, makes me appreciate using Qubes as a daily driver! (Altho probably not as safe as all that if you've ever enabled USB keyboard support.)

Looks like for full mayhem you need to build and flash a forked version of the shipped firmware, might give that a go this weekend.

Here's something I've been helping out with for the past couple weeks.

Freedom of the Press Foundation has launched a membership program. You can connect with a community of defenders of Press Freedom and also get SWAG.

I can guarantee the swag is top notch. Wearing my extra soft (and stylish!) FPF hoodie right now.

Not to brag too much, but I designed this logo and now you get to wear it.

For once I'm just barely ahead of the stampede to another system. Feels good, entity.

I was told there would be lively discourse.
