As this is a new account, and per the instance rules an #introduction
I make things, experiment with #electronics, #amateurradio, #retrocomputing, in particular #amiga and #mac (PPC/68k mostly). I like #astronomy and #astrophotography. I enjoy #writing, and aim to put out 6 issues of Tales From The Dork Web a year, available at https://thedorkweb.substack.com/
I also occasionally write for WhatIFF? Magazine.
Let's be clear: #celebrities, from singers to #Musk, want to groom users to become diehard fans that can be squeezed for money, which is hard to do in a #socialmedia that has relatively more freedom (#Twitter), hence they choose #walledgardens that require shorter attention span and allows for more personal censoring (#Instagram and #TikTok allows deleting other users' comments under one's content).
Reject modern personal worships, defend free discourse with #respect!
Everyone told us (even on island) that rockitis would set in and we'd need to go to civilization but between us we haven't been able to conjure up the will to leave, even for a day trip. #theJournal
My favourite Eurovision entry was Latvia's eat your salad. Catchy hook, bonkers lyrics, what's not to love?
(Uncensored vid, sexual references, not kid safe)
Well, it looks like a good cleaning was all it needed! No more video glitches or distortions, although it seems to still have a little bit of jitter every once in a while when the drive is active. Still, it's much better than it was previously. I currently have NiftyTelnet telnetting to my Power Mac G4 running Debian bookworm/sid ppc64, and then SSHing to my Raspberry Pi model B running NetBSD where my SSH session to SDF is active.
And we found it, the mighty* Sark henge.
(Its actually tiny but dont tell anyone)
We then hiked through a forest to Derrible in search of adventure.
Any #hamradio enthusiasts using a turnstile for NOAA and Meteor reception? I've set up a turnstile in the shed to test but i'm not confident. Any thoughts/tips? A v-dipole works fine here BTW.

I make things. Mistakes, mostly.
Revel in the marvels of the universe. We are a collective of forward-thinking individuals who strive to better ourselves and our surroundings through constant creation. We express ourselves through music, art, games, and writing. We also put great value in play. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
