Mastodon is becoming less and less enjoyable for me, especially since I moved away from Fosstodon. I'm thinking about abandoning it altogether or returning to Fosstodon. I'll probably lay low for a while and reconsider in a week.

@lyliawisteria @qwazix specificly asked that we not continue the discussion on his thread but you just had to disrespect him and me. Because if idiots like you, a young Lady lost her life in Lynchburg, VA. You have earned my first block. Way to go.

I got to enjoy the music of Ray Wylie Hubbard, Jack Ingram and Gary P. Nunn this evening. Enjoyable even though they're not in my wheelhouse.

The Software Engineering Daily podcast had a wonderful interview with Bruce Perens, a pillar in the open source world. Highly recommended.

Bought a Pebble2 SE smartwatch today. Something new with which to play. Spouse may eventually want one to use in her Certified Personal Fitness Trainer roll. Of all the options available, this seems the least intrusive.

Got to watch Jesse Triplett, the lead guitar player of Collective Soul, ply his trade tonight. Amazing guitar player. Too bad it was the last show of their tour.

Got to catch the Gin Blossoms opening for Collective Soul in Dallas tonight. We arrived a little late because of the parking lot known as I35.

Called out last night at 9:30pm. Home again at 6am. The electric company never sleeps.

I've listened to a few episodes of your new podcast this morning. The theme song reminded me of something but I just couldn't put my finger on it. Than I realized that "Oh yeah" is a Tommy Ramone "Oh yeah" if I ever heard one. You must have been a Ramones fan.

#GMail is harmful to e-mail ecosystem; its antispam blocking policy matches too many valid messages as spam.

It blocked LastPass email leak warning email, because it contained "a link" to a leaked site.

It blocked an e-mail from goverment agency addressed directly to me.

It discriminates all non-gmail servers, and it's pretty much impossible to own a private SMTP server these days, because GMail will classify everything as spam.

It's not how e-mail should work.

Consider dropping GMail.

You would think that after 47 years of playing the guitar that Nancy Wilson would be accomplished enough that they wouldn't have to hire 2 other guitars players for their band.

Caught Joan Jett tonight in Dallas. She was opening for Heart. I thought it should have been the other way around. Joan was awesome. Heart not so much. We left after their second song.

Nothing like the smell of duck and goose guano in the morning. Crushed my 5K this morning. Took a day of vacation in preparation for Joan Jett tonight! 'tGiveADamnAboutMyBadReputation

I've decided that Chinese knockoffs of the E3D V6 hot end are shit, clogging constantly. I've also discovered that replacing the heat break and nozzle with genuine E3D parts fixes the problem.

@klaatu
No Gnu World Order today reminded me that you are traveling. Safe travels.

My Chinese knockoff of the E3D V6 hot end has become a clogging machine. Every ends with extruder stepper chug and an air print. I read that many of their fans just don't move enough air so I printed an adapter for a 40mm fan. Still clogging. Next step is replacing the heat break.
