Found myself speaking with the parent of a small child I was amusing* at a restaurant:

"Are you an actor?"
"A comedian?"
"Not exactly. Why do you ask?"
"Well, you're very animated..."
"And yet, you didn't ask if I was a cartoon."

*OK, truth be told, we were amusing each other.

Holy Sh** #Microsoft has installed the simplest backdoor in your #Linux VMs without you knowing about it.

Microsoft Azure silently install management agents on your Linux VMs without an auto update mechanism, so you have to update manually but you don't know they exist because you didn't install them? 🤔

Simply remove the auth header and you are root. Remotely on all machines.🤯

Job opportunities:

We're hiring for a mess of roles at my employer, ranging from dev roles, QA, data engineers, and more. Hiring across the globe, too. Give me a yell if you're interested in a referral!

in america, we call it an elevator, but in britain, they call it a lift 

i guess we’re just raised differently

Only two more hours till #circusInPlace !!
Take a break from the day and hang out with some clowns.
We're gonna do some pushups. (after the acrobatics)


Thanks for the "find the local weirdo" tip. They've proven to be a wealth of useful information.

It also turns out I read the room wrong, and there was no long standing dislike of concertinas. So much for family lore.

After a night of tinkering on geeky projects, I'm excited to get up and move!

Pop into the video chat and keep me company as I throw another person into the air.

(It's OK, @avalon asked me too.)

The shenanigans start at 8pm UTC-5:

The grouped term for spoons is a paucity, both for emotional accuracy and the fact that the phrase "a paucity of spoons" is fun to say.

Does this post still have that new(ish) phone smell?

@Tusky, can we please get a preferences import/export option?

Nerd Achievement (and bootloader) Unlocked:

I have successfully de-googled a device.

Bonus realization:

I could knit a sweater from all the yak shaving required.

Finally had a day cool enough to enjoy sitting on the porch while drinking coffee.

When magic first returned, nobody noticed. Humans had long forgotten how to consciously use magic, but once someone did notice, there came a concentrated effort to make sure other people remained safe and ignorant.

Being a lifelong reader of fantasy had helped - most of it was as accurate as it was varied.

"I'm a poor hungry human - I'd do anything for a bagel," I sighed, standing in a fairy-ring, my team hiding with iron beaded nets.

Join us as we start our week late in the day, with #circusInPlace !
Casual hang out with fedi friends, and clowns.
We'll be turning on our camera in two hours :)

Miniature cabinet of curiosities project, I'm ALL DONE 

Hooray! I finished a project!!

I tend to look at things I've made and fixate on the details I wish I could change, but overall I'm happy with this one

I got so hasty when I could see the finish line that I forgot to take separate photos of 2 of the things I made: on the 3rd shelf there's a mummified Egyptian cat, and on the bottom shelf there's a (real) green quartz crystal in a wrought iron holder. Everything else is detailed upthread

Show thread

Informal studies have shown regular doses of promotes happiness, enhanced levels of whimsy, and a greater sense of being in the company of actual clowns.

Musically inclined friends:

My current intellectual rabbit hole appears to be taking the form of a concertina.

I know nothing about them.

Deluge me with your wisdom, and hit me up if you have a spare one lying about.

@nx inside you there are two animals, a dog who loves you unconditionally and is just excited to play, and a cat who does nothing but criticize everything you do. which one wins? the one you pats and give treats to

Mimes,, the only people that can be completely silent with a french accent.

While shockingly expensive, I'm really excited that we've recently pulled the trigger on some upgrades to the gymnastics mats we train with during . Soon we'll be able to risk going a little higher, a little further, and a little weirder with all of our shenanigans.

In the meantime, I'm hoping that all of our failures continue to be as silly as this one:
