covid isolation, negative mental health impacts
One thing I didn’t expect as a mental symptom of the isolation was the intense, irrational and paralysing feelings of guilt at the prospect of going near people or outside, making it hard to do important & necessary things like collecting my meds or deciding what groceries I need.
Got my USB-C PD trigger PCBs! These will negotiate a PD supply up to 9, 12, 15 or 20V for input to other DC devices. Might buy a TS-100 soldering iron and install one for proper USB-C PD support! Or some other devices. #making

There’s a disturbing hidden trend amongst the youths of today that you may not be aware of. Many of them are under the misguided impression that it’s necessary to pay various giant corporations hard earned money every single month, to maintain access to a catalogue of movies and TV to view! These sadly misled folks believe that at the whim of a licensing executive, or if they fail to submit their tithings, their access to media can be taken away without warning! This may shock you, but it’s true.
Do your part to combat this worrying trend. Teach Your Local Teens To Torrent (Responsibly)!
Hey, uh, I know my circle on here isn't very music-oriented. But in the isolation I've gotten back into engraving (typesetting) public domain music. If anybody has any particular public domain piece they'd like transcribed into a digital file with MuseScore, I'll do it for free! (provided I can find a scanned score, and it hasn't already been done well). #music ♻️🆗

movie un-recommendation, ick
I went to find a sci-fi movie that didn’t look too thriller-violent on Netflix and landed on Mute. But I had to stop watching because a significant character is a pedo who keeps preying on kids, it’s gross. Any better recommendations of movies that aren’t gory-violent, jumpscary, emotionally stressful or gross?
