cronk is running on http://fd.stenoweb.net/SitePages/TECT.aspx - let me know if it's weird.
Also, should there be like a server account (or should I make, like, a TECT Info account?) for announcements related to the server itself? Especially given that the server has to run updates once in a while, etc. #TECT
vaguely related hottake: deprecated computer systems requiring rare or proprietary, obsolete hardware should be preserved by emulation
I have developed a new product, a competitor to Tile, for keeping track of your things. It is free, open source, and uses no batteries.
I call it “Being Super Aware and Careful About Where You Put Important Things That Your Everyday Life Depends On.”
hopefully everything'll behave a bit better now
rebooting tect/sodor hardware because, uh... I don't even know.

thinking about the 10.14 req bump: I'll admit I'm surprised they did what they did when it was, but in retrospect, I guess it was inevitable.
The fact that you can upgrade the GPU in a Mac Pro 5,1 to give it a life extension into the Metal era is interesting. AFAIK Apple has *never* officially thrown this bone before. Expansion has never been for life extension before, only speed/capacity improvements within a lifecycle.
I'm still thinking about whether I'll get a newer Mac.

Kind of like slakc/teams basically, where there's separte indicators for the default like action, text replies, and emoji replies like thumbs-up, checkmarks, etc.
Kind of a useful way to read a room, too, and perhaps an easier way to hashtag engage with the hashtag content and the hashtag discourse.

masto idea, potentially esp. useful for "announcement" accounts (hypothetical infra@cronk kind of thing):
"reaction" actions such as [checkmark] or others available, in addition to (or instead of?) "favorite" - basically, a quick way for someone looking to go "yeah I saw this" without implying they loved it.
This is also related to my fear of the term favorite. I feel like favorites are something you have like ten of, not something you have 10 each day
Yes-I realize it's just words
Mastodon *really* needs a collapse toot button. I don't care that mastodon itself doesn't support more than 500 characters.
Other software it federates with and will federate with in the future do and will.
installing updates on tect/vtect (the vm, not sodor the host)
installing patches on maron
Waiting for Walgreens to open.
Coolpeds with bulges are uncommon here. A heat exchanger isn’t needed by the equipment in there.
Even less common: a ped with half an 819 on top.
@calvin is Calvin Harris pass it on
who cares about film grain when we can have "mid-1990s digital camera JPEG" grain instead?

love my totally fine body's totally normal reactions to even the most mild of adverse conditions.
So great and it never causes me trouble.
