Pinned toot

My toot!

I'm Andy and I'm the admin of

My interests are covered in my profile. On I've briefly known the Black Dog in the past and work hard to keep him on a leash. My wife lives with bundled with and (though has a grip on all of them) and her illnesses are one of the things that drive me to be so passionate about support and care. Which is why I set up this Masto instance; a safe place to socialise and chat. 👍

After seeing someone carrying a full TRAY of lemsip drinks, I really don't want to be here today.. 😷

T-minus 3 days.

I also have game bugs to fix.

And cake to eat.

Fixed my NextCloud/Collabora issues. The self-signed certificate for the localhost loolwsd proxy had expired. 🤔 Sorted anyway. I can write again.

Really awesome episode of again.

More open discussion of depression please BBC; and male depression and suicidality, which isn't talked about enough.

Talking is good. It's that simple. Really. 👍

Interesting theory…

“Their calculation predicts that space-time is curved very strongly near the center of the black hole. The result is that space-time continues into a region in the future that has the structure of a white hole. A white hole is like a black hole in reverse, meaning that unlike a black hole, which pulls matter in, a white hole shoots matter out.”

The thing about having two nice people in my timeline called Jo, one of whom I'm married to, is I REALLY have to be careful with context and triple-checking whose toots it is I'm reading. 😂

Received my personal data center 🤗

This would make a great #pubnix wouldn’t it?

In other news, I did start implementing "conning mobs" of a sort for my . Voila, one dynamic sensor threat analysis suite (aka minimap).

God I hate Discord. This wasn't what Eris had in mind when she sowed the seeds of discord. Nor did "Bob" Dobbs ever consider what Slack would turn out to be.

Day off. Super-secret online game alpha to playtest. Kids at school.

No Internet. Merry Xmas from Vermin Media. 😭

This is a statue located in Berlin, entitled "Politicians Discussing Global Warming."

Three-day weekend, no kids and an invite to test an in-development game I signed up for a while back. I better get my jobs out of the way today so I can kick back tomorrow. 😁

PSA: kids, even when they're adults, will find some way to behave like knobs and guarantee you a shitty night's sleep.

Now, where did I put my ☕

TESB and a cup of herbal tea as the wind whips around the house outside. Definitely feels like winter now.

The weather is a bit rough... Glad I didn't head into Manchester today. Nice and cosy at home.

Started work on my UI (right side-panel). Trying to get my head into that whole edgy ANSI-art vibe I obsessed over in my dial-up BBS days. Everything in the side-bar is static so far, with the exception of the mission time (now I have action turns implemented properly).

Can I say hello here? I'm brand new to Mastodon! Serenity now! 🤠

Fixed a couple of bugs with collision and pathfinding. Then put sprouts, spuds, onions and chops in the oven. Good start to the weekend!

...and done. Three-day weekend again. Four more working days and off for Xmas.

Great. 500 error on my NextCloud/Collabora server when I try to load ODTs. Reboot hasn't fixed it.

That's not going to bug the shit out of me all day while I'm at work AT all... 🤣
