I am going to have a busy, busy day tomorrow-today. Work, therapy, and washing a blanket for my first acupuncture session. Blanket spent too much time in the closet, so has that stuffy smell.

... I want a pair of gloves that can livestream video from the palms of my hands if I hold my hands up. Don't care about my phone's data plan, just blast that shit straight to the internet from both cameras.

Sexual Kinks and Mastodon lament :boost_ok:​ 

It's safe to say there's not an instance that focuses on pumping and saline use, which makes me kinda sad.

I need to figure out what the hell Scaleway is going to do to my costs as they're doing away with capping; If it doesn't really affect me much, maybe spin up a machine and try to get something established on it for pumpers and saline users.

Fetlife, as a social network, is extra stagnant on it, with little to no relevant posts in MONTHS, despite there being a boom in pump tube acquisitions in just this year alone.
And then there's PumpPig, which lacks the social aspect, and is just for hooking up.

But to wit PumpToys has been backordered or sold out of any tube I'd be interested in (I like big ones).

The only other tube I would buy for pumping is fucking $350 with shipping. A bit much!

But I'd bet there's a community of pumpers that have old tubes they've outgrown and would trade at a decent value to newer pumpers that are looking for the right hardware. They don't have to be furries. They just have to be pumpers or saline users.

I have a purchasing decision to make.
I returned my Saris cycling trainer because it wasn't what I needed. For $288, the features it offered could be found in other trainers half its price OR LOWER.
(Read: it was supposed to offer speed/cadence with the sensor, but it isn't calibratable, and results in me looking like I'm doing 20+ mph in Rouvy.)

So now I have a credit in my Damnazon account for this thing to burn off.
I could do at least one of the things on the poll with the balance.

I've put off the CPU purchase for several months, but right now I'm running on a Ryzen 3 3200G. Purchasing the 5 3600 would have its benefits, and I could then take the 3 3200G and put it on another motherboard I have, buy a stick of RAM and a solid state drive, and have a spare computer for the living room to potentially play Stepmania and other games on.

The drawing tablet would be really nice to have, but it would be questionable how much use I'd get from it.

The cycling trainer could still be useful in getting me to possibly exercise again, though acquisition of a proper exercise bike is also plausible. It would mean I wouldn't have to lug my real bike in and out of the house.

:boost_ok:​ I'm just looking for a lot of thoughts on this.

Thanks! :)

@ctrlaltdog That is me in a nutshell. I'm only back on Android because Windows Mobile is officially dead, and my glucometer only works on Android or iOS.
But, no jokes, I'm a non-fan of Alphabet, and am waiting for viable alternatives for the last things I use them for to pop up.

Hi.

Can I have a basket full of French fries that are coated in, like, seasoned salt, garlic, pepper, and maybe cheese, please?

@rey For sure. :)

Work is going to make this hard to continue, but my therapist is looking for a way to keep this going for me.

blatant advertisement for a US wireless carrier 

@rey As a company, I like Ting. Especially so now that they MVNO on Verizon. As a consumer, Ting would have only been a fit for me during the pandemic while I was at home.
I'm back in the office next week, and so my data usage will return to about 3GB a month.

I'd fare better on Verizon prepaid at that price point ($45).

Huh... Something's busted with my blog's activitypub module, it seems. My blog entries on @xial after the first of the year never made it here, so it seems, and that's kind of disappointing.

What's worse is I only JUST noticed this problem.

In October.

And have no idea how to fix this.

re: boost with cw, friend asking for money help to get medicine, super important please boost :boost_ok: 

@vantablack + @joshua I heard the awoo. There's something for you. :)

@eryn It'd be an all day trip kind of deal for me, via FlixBus or BoltBus or Greyhound. I appreciate the offer, but I'm avoiding travel for the present.

This said, a trailer would be ridiculously helpful for me, so that I could take these bags of recycling to the recycling center and get my deposit back. Ten cents a container is worth it when you have probably 170 containers to pitch back. The trailer would be the safer way to haul three bags at once.

I think I understand why bicycle trailers are so frequently stolen now. No one wants to pay $120 for the least expensive model.

I would need donor bicycles to craft something of my own, recycling some of the frame metal, and I still don't know how to weld, lol.

Let's see if I can get more water down my throat today.

And lest y'all forget: Y'all thirsty, drink some dang water.

Relatively lewd, minor politics ref, COVID-adjacent. 

I hate how often politics are rammed down my throat.

If I wanted something rammed down my throat, I'd take a bus to Portland, and fly east to Canada, knock on my boyfriend's door and say "Fuck my throat."

Actually, no, I wouldn't: I'm a responsible meat computer that is staying home to minimize the spread of our pandemic sauce.

Not to say that I wouldn't. I was planning a trip like that before the pandemic showed up at the door.
