I'm sure they wouldn't think this group of enthusiastic jews and their friends would get tired of showing up here

@robotfriend Round 2 (for me, more for others). The Wyatt board insisted they would not be voting today and kicked us out to hold a closed session.

Because I am safety conscious I regularly test the smoke detector in my house. Also because I don't know how to cook

An evening with some lovely folks in the overflow from the Wyatt Prison's public board meeting as they consider a proposal to privatize the prison and extend the ICE contract

Fuck that shit

"Reading technical books in bed will be relaxing" *repeatedly gets into fights with the books*

@robotfriend Normally humans in the Soyuz would take over if automatically docking fails but the robot passenger, Fyodor, can't do that

@robotfriend Robot spaceship had trouble docking and needs to back up and try again

@robotfriend This is the passenger test robot with it's plush cosmonaut, and it's honestly adorable

A robot spaceship with a robot passenger is now trying to dock with the ISS youtu.be/21X5lGlDOfg

@robotfriend Holy shit, an electricity thing actually did what I thought it would! Presenting: pitch glide time

apolloinrealtime.org is a super cool replay of an absurd amount of historical data

"I'll go to sleep after I just..."
*accidentally unplugs computer*

This is kinda where I'm out of my depth. If my code misbehaves I have no problem, but I don't really know how electricity works or how to tell if it's not

@robotfriend Module 2 is assembled, but somehow works less than it did when it was a pile of wires

I ask this, not because I started writing an essay about editing in music videos at 1:00am while I was supposed to be doing other things, but because....uh...I'm just curious

@robotfriend Add some knobs and sockets and a pile of electronics, and I have my first actual for real module!

Going to bed at 1:45am, and for the first time today I feel truly awake

🦑 ☕️ Squid Cafe


Below the thunders of the upper deep,
Far, far beneath in the abysmal sea,
His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep
The Kraken sleepeth: faintest sunlights flee
About his shadowy sides; above him swell
Huge sponges of millennial growth and height;
And far away into the sickly light,
From many a wondrous and secret cell
Unnumber'd and enormous polypi
Winnow with giant arms the lumbering green.
There hath he lain for ages, and will lie
Battening upon huge sea-worms in his sleep,
Until the latter fire shall heat the deep;
Then once by man and angels to be seen,
In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die.
— "The Kraken" by Alfred Lord Tennyson, 1830

This is Squid Café, a special (to me) Mastodon instance.

It is not focused on any particular niche interest, however, I am a fountain pen user/collector, hence the semi-related "squid" name. (Squid. Ink. Get it?) Also... Cephalopods. Analog/digital photography, science. It’s all good. Everyone is welcome as long as you follow the code of conduct.

Bow to your cephalopod overloards!
