Sooo I bought an iPad mini. Doing my ✈️ Instrument rating and it's easier to use them for Airport charts. Except I didn't want to spend an extra NZ$220~ for the Cellular model just to get GPS. Bought a Garmin GLO2 (Bluetooth GPS) for much cheaper. Let's see how it goes!

I've hit the age where I realise how important sleep is. I need more of it.

Spent some time in G1000 sim today doing

It's been awhile, but damn it all comes back to you

Upgraded mastodon.nz to V3.4.1

I only broke it for 5 minutes.. Whoops

Have been trialing github.com/thelounge/thelounge recently, kind of like kiwiirc+znc in one. Clean UI, pretty simple to use, no crazy configuration

A month ago I signed up for birdsite again - by the end of the day I'd removed my account again. Same old stuff with a new UI. Do not recommend hah

Time to cut back on the random projects, gadgets and toys. Need to focus more on things that I really care about

I seem to say this every other month. I need to use Mastodon more.

Life has just been too busy. Can I have a break now?

I need to get out with my camera more!

Finally have a day to myself and struggling to keep busy. I keep going to open this bubble scrolling simulator called FB, but then remembering nothing good can really come from it and close it

BookWyrm is a new open federated alternative to Goodreads, and part of the Fediverse:

You can post about books you're reading, and interact with others on BookWyrm, Mastodon etc.

The platform is still a work in progress:

The flagship instance is at:

bookwyrm.social/

Development git is here:

github.com/bookwyrm-social/boo

Just last night I was saying to a friend "I'll probably drive this car until it croaks", expecting another 3-5 years... Well this morning it's running on 3 cylinders and not loving life 🙃

#intro #introduction #introductions post?

New instance on tribes.host, may get nuked if I screw something up but here’s hoping not!

My interests are #Linux and #foss #opensource, #photography usually of the #motorsport kind, and a variety of other things I do to procrastinate about doing yet more things.

I may even post random amusing crap from my day. Who knows.
If it’s from work then it will be about how apparently useless the previous technician was to work on a machine. I fix forklifts for a living, which includes everything from engine rebuilds to hydraulics, to electrical and diagnosing CANbus faults. Exciting stuff. That was sarcasm for those that didn’t catch that.

I may post none of that anyway. It will be a surprise I guess. 🤷‍♂️

Second attempt at going outside. Success! He loved the sun and playing around in the grass
