Dear #fediverse. I work as an #architect and design buildings that harm the planet. I am looking for a practicing #engineer who can teach me building energy modelling using #opensource tools. I have a background in software dev, run #gentoo #linux and am willing to learn down to the details.

I do not have a background in heat transfer or thermodynamics, which is why I am asking for a tutor.

I promise to use this to design better buildings.

Please help retoot this so I can find someone.

Im desperately Swedish, I believe that its my duty to - no good English phrase "do my duty" is the closest ("göra rätt för mig") - pay my taxes, but I was also raised to fear the state and bureaucracy. Added to that is my agoraphobia and panic attacks.
Im at the tax office to fix some paperwork, and freaking out hard in the queue. Uy…

I found the best word for something I often experience: "Hypnopomp Hallucinations"

Like when you wake up and think you hear sounds from the dream.

The appendix "-pomp" is the fanciest appendix (proof: "psychopomp" a spirit or being that guides the spirit of the dead)

To make room for the next batch I am dropping prices of a handful of items, like this little astronaut for example!

Listening to a radio documentary about the bank burglary in Alby 1992 - and now I want to write a self-help book based on three of the criminals opinion on the bank coup.

All of them are basically a massive LUMP of good sayings, like how there is no point focusing too much the days before "All that happens is that you're scared twice, instead of just once when it happens"

I love being old - I have no idea what the youth is listening to music wise and like an old man I have to research what it is.
Right now reading up on mumble rap and its evolution.

Best insult in RPG session (DnD):
"Oh he's some kind of … savant"

So 2019, lessee plans for this year… More focus I think, less illness and more health, more local stuff.
Less doubt and anxiety, more calm confidence.

When you miss people you have on here have podcasts too... @klaatu and @kensanata both have interesting podcasts that I added to the 2019 podcast RSS feed.

Today 45 years ago (1973) was the first labour strike in space as the astronauts on Skylab 4 refused to work for 24 hours and demanded more time to contemplate life, Earth and themselves.

TIL: Adolf Hitler had a sister-in-law named Bridget Hitler who lived in Liverpool.

TIL: there is British progressive rockband called "Gandalf's Fist"
