I’ve had this picture in my wip folder for over half a year I think, but I finally managed to finish this after all this time. Anyhow, hopefully you like!

Just kinda posting this here because of some negative experience I've had with Mastopeeps in the past. Fortunately it's never been anyone from .art and it's been a while since I got harassed.

But honestly, if you don't like my pin-up art, you can mute/block me and my feelings won't be hurt. Unless someone is breaking actual rules/laws there is no excuse to call them out just bc you personally don't like it.

The last of the photos from Commonwealth Lake Park.

1) Mrs. Mallard
2) Two ducklings swimming through/walking on top of the algae.
3) A bush and a duck.

I went on a birdwalk this morning in Commonwealth Lake Park, a small urban park west of . Supposedly the birds are more habituated to humans here, so you can get closer to them. The park has several green , who apparently didn't get that memo. Here are the only two good shots I managed to get.

A cinnabar #moth and #caterpillar; actually seen a few days apart - the moth I saw on a pretty busy road near my home a few days ago, the caterpillar I saw today as I was walking along the Bridgewater canal towpath.
Both are incredibly vibrant colours. The moth was sporadically beating it's wings really fast.
There were loads of the caterpillars around today.

I just acquired this silicon rocket! It's a Latitude 2110 with an Atom CPU and 2 (count 'em! Two!) gigabytes of RAM! This baby is a mere nine years old. Barely has its first gray hair[line crack]!

A lot of people put on these back in the day. Reviews back then said it was a good bottom-end Linux machine. I want to refresh my Linux skills. Does anybody know whether would run on it? Can I make a super-lean Gentoo? The Gentoo wiki doesn't mention this model.

I was looking for some air museum photos from 2009 when I came across some shots of the Boneyard in Las Vegas. The Boneyard is where old casino neon signs go to die. They're now calling it The Neon Museum, and I suspect the whole shebang is fancier now. Back then, it was just a lot full of old signs.

Anyway, I did a quick edit of one of the shots to see how it would look. I'll eventually get around to editing and posting some more.

I'm extremely pleased to launch Run Your Own Social: How to run a small social network site for you friends.

This is a guide book to running a small, tight-knit federated social network server. It comes from my year of experience running Friend Camp. It's focused largely on SOCIAL solutions, though it does touch on the technical.

I've tried to keep it technology-neutral, and it should be a pretty easy read for anyone who's been on the fediverse for a while.

More photos from Jackson Bottom Wetlands Preserve.

Here we have:
1) A juvenile osprey waiting for lunch in his nest atop a pole.
2) An egret flying high above.
3) A heron standing in a pond.
4) A heron high in a tree. The herons and egrets nest next to each other in these trees, probably for safety in numbers.

The county has put up a long row of these birdhouses for the benefit of the swallows. You could say, therefore, that these swallows are living in public housing. Whether you consider that good or bad depends on your politics!
