Pinned toot

Alright, time for a new home. Fosstodon has been recommend to me by quite a few people as the place that matches my interests, so, uh, here I am!

For those not following me over from mastodon.org.uk, I'm a FOSS community manager, wannabe data scientist, sysadmin and devops enthusiast. Currently very interested in and , but will happily talk endlessly about pretty much anything.

Printing in black. Low-angle camera. Not a great combination 🤦‍♂️

@Tay0 more practice. This printed perfectly, but I now need to learn to measure the doors first ... :)

I'm discovering that is excellent for catching up on podcasts and build planning for the new league ...

Woo, my new 3d printer arrived! So, unboxing and setting up Octoprint is on for tonight.

Any other printer users in my vicinity? Would love to learn from you all :)

Do you fly a #drone in the U.K.?

As of today, you need a flyer registration for most non-toy drones, and an operator ID for many (eg if it has a camera). register-drones.caa.co.uk/regi

By far the most scary part of the season - more than roasting a bird, more than the pressure to get "good" presents - is when I cut into the black bun I made *a month ago*. If it's bad, it's not like I can just dash off another one.

Thankfully my recipe is a good one. Pastry under-baked slightly but edible. Filling is spot on. It's tasty :)

We're officially mainstream folks! Just this in my *crossword*

"Source ____ (4)”

And yes, it was "code". And no, I didn't get it right away, because I didn't expect that topic to be in a *crossword*.

What a time to be alive!

Whoa, was already huge, now it's a behemoth. So many things to try out....

(Like migrating it to a fresh install because my ancient many-times-upgraded one is starting to behave erratically)

Just finished the first session of my new RPG group on Roll20. Have to say, I'm impressed. Clear audio without lag, good map tools, obviously a decent dice system, and macros if you want them.

Seems like the players enjoyed themselves, so part 2 will be happening at some point.

Who says you can't RPG when you have kids? :)

This is the right season for my favourite tree...

Don't tell me you don't have a favourite tree.

Oh my. Checking out roll20app [@twitter.com] and my programming brain has been completely triggered by the extensive macroing system. I am *so* going to lose whole weeks to this...

So, can we just fork the {UK/Scotland} subdirectory? The current maintainers of {UK} seem unwilling to merge our patches...

I have been away too long. Twitter seduced me with it's meme-y-ness. I can only atone for my sins through the medium of dance.

You can't see me dancing, but that's probably for the best :)

I mean, I mostly followed the docs. But sometimes a code-through can help, right?
