As a small experiment to see if it has any effect on my stability and endurance during running, I completed my first Barre session.

I'm not sure how long this experiment will last. From the tears rolling down my partner's face (which could only be seen once she was no longer doubled up laughing hysterically), I can only assume she was far more entertained than me.

Apparently, the look of confusion on my face grew with every move, as I attempted to contort myself.

Helped someone else with an update: "Oh, that went really smooth, I'll do mine now".

F$%k you, Ubuntu server.

Rapidly reminded myself why I don't do in-place upgrades.

First night away of two for work in ages. Makes me realise how much I like my routine and creature comforts. But most of all, home cooked food.

Away for a couple of days with work next week. Lunch is prepped! makes life so easy.

*two weeks later*

"So, you see...."

One of the _perks_ of using an instance of Nitter is the spoilers on Twitter's polls, which are hidden on the repose so I know the current trend without waiting for the end of that particular poll - nor vote on the official interface, being logged in.

The new #gajim #xmpp client is looking really good. The devs made a great effort of re-designing a lot of the UI/UX. Furthermore, this runs on Linux, Windows and Mac OS.
