And for any concerned I'll be taking all the perfectly fine working 3k bulbs to my family farm to be used in the various sheds and stuff. I'm not THAT wasteful. Just anal.

I spent like $100 on lightbulbs so that I could get each room in the house to a consistent 5k white light since the previous owners had a mix of led/incandescent bulbs everywhere and some where 3k "warm" lights and others were 5k white light.

Also am I crazy for having a preference of 5k for the temperature of my lighting? Or just crazy for actually having a lighting temperature preference at all?

Played a little of the open beta for Back4Blood. It really is just like Left4Dead but updated for today's graphics. The addition of the cards to get perks and upgrades to your weapons is a nice fresh touch too. Free for the weekend on steam.

Dashers used an app called Para to dig into the dispatch orders from Doordash to figure out how much they'd earn from the jobs on offer. Doordash's excuse for freezing out Para - "protecting privacy" - is self-serving nonsense #privacywashing

Mask mandates in the city means no beard trim with my haircut today. A good trim by someone else is so enjoyable for some reason.

Moved to a new home and setup an ecobee 3 lite this afternoon without breaking anything, so that's nice. I do find it annoying that in every place I've ever lived, the HVAC never has the c wire connected. At least this time I didn't have to do it in a sweltering attic.

Moved to a new home over the weekend and the honeydo list is so long.... Still happy with the new location, profits on the previous home, and downsizing to something that feels just right.

Staying connected has never been more important. Help me support EFF and the fight for every tech users’ right to privacy, free speech, and digital access. eff.org/greetings

On another note, taking book suggestions since I'm almost through ready player two

Been on a relaxing family vacation this week and it's been great. Actually spending some time reading and managed to read Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir and have about 80 pages left of Ready Player Two by Ernest Cline. If you liked The Martian, Project Hail Mary is a similarly good read. Ready Player Two so far is alright but definitely not as good as the first.

Long day of driving but finally at the beach. And it is relaxing.

Oh hello fediverse. It's been quite a while but I've been busy.

Gonna go check out a new home being built today. Even though the market is super hot right now, I think we will get enough money out of our current home to offset it.

This will be my 4th move in 9 years, all in the same area. Getting kinda good at it, but hopefully this is the last for a while.

Surprise streaming! Tonight I've been wanting to try out the earthbound ancient cave randomizer earthbound.app. Come watch me fail at twitch.tv/thelogrus1

It's a pretty tame seed if I remember correctly.
