Howdy Mastodon!

Engineer working for Previously I worked on Ubuntu Phone and doing multimedia/TV, almost all consumer electronics.

An Open Source advocate and Ubuntu member. Was a co-founder for Inkscape and now serve on its board.

I think that one mistake I made with my Twitter account was making it all technical, expect this to have more politics and other stuff.

Congratulations to our friends at @Blender for their release of Blender 3.0, which, according to their announcement, 'mark[s] the beginning of a new era for open source 2D/3D content creation'!

Feature video for Blender 3.0 (it's amazing!):

The Visit Plano site has a fun virtual tour of the National Video Game museum:

The museum itself's website:

Somehow I'm on the weirdest spam lists with interesting subject lines like "Worlds first Recoil Damping Sandwich!" Seems like it'd be hard on your teeth, but apparently important for offshore oil drilling.

Ordering a new UPS battery because the storm last night proved I need one.

Some things just shouldn't have the option for a gift receipt.

Took a survey where this was the employment question. Makes you think.

Completely feel this when eating at Eastern food restaurants. Usually I go with "I'd like white people spicy," which gets a laugh and close to what I want.

Hope that cell phone services can band together and require proof of vaccination to sign up for plans that include 5G. Then getting vaccinated would literally give you 5G.

Apple using multiple dies per-package could make a ton of sense for them. It allows them to get more milage out of each mask, where number of masks would normally be the downside building your own chips in different product lines.

Feel like Biden missed a moment by not making the OSHA vaccine mandate take effect on January 6th.

Gun groups opposing the Texas abortion law because they're worried about bounty schemes being used to target gun owners in other states.

Billed as photography tips for Hawaii, this is a list of CAPTIONS for your social media posts.


Reminder to most Americans to vote today. Likely local elections which are often more impactful on your day-to-day life than the national ones that get lots of press.

How many Raspberry Pis can one have before they have a problem?

... asking ... for a friend ...

Part of my Friday routine is to "clean my desk." Which is less about being clean and more about ensuring that every little project that was written down on a post-it is taken care of.

At the doctor for my son and the nurse asked three times if I was okay with testing him for COVID. Hate the politicization of this disease so much.

Curious if Trump is in the end going to use Mastodon for his social network whether they'd keep federation on. Their policy on "no criticism of Trump" would be hard to enforce across the Fediverse.

Messing around with the demo server at work and a Hackernews data download. Seems that there's about 10x the number of stories about SVG than there are on Inkscape.

That generally makes sense, it seems like more association with SVG would help Inkscape.

OH hockey dad at the rink: "He had a cut lip and a black eye so we took him to the doctor and the doctor gave him another concussion! Can you believe the doctor gave him a concussion!?!?"
