This dossier details a classified Blappeture Mesa research project. The Enrichment Center would like to remind you of these mandatory safety and happiness guidelines:

1. Petting and patient discussion are encouraged. ⚠️​ Device size may vary.

2. The device will never threaten to bite you and, in fact, may hug you. Repeatedly. (With permission.)

3. The device is slow to respond. Your request will be processed.

details/full resolution/extra story:

So I asked the GPT-2 text generation AI about paws… 

@conatus I'm hardly one to talk, but:

1. Timeblock. Set aside time to do The Thing. And during that time, Do The Thing.

2. Chunk. Figure out what The Thing consists of, and then itemise and do the Things, one at a time.

3. Distract. Find something even more tedious and assign yourself to do that. Procrastinate by Doing the Thing.

4. Fill. Make The Thing what you do in downtime from other tasks.

5. Partner. Find someone to GENTLY guide you back to Doing The Thing.

Request art for @digitalfox and Azure of them both just playing around. They're cute foxes. 🦊​ #furry #furrysfw #artwithopensource

Tech bit: Ansible/Salt reducing risk of nginx package break on Debian/Ubuntu 

@99CentSoftness I keep getting confused seeing your new icon in my Home stream… But in a nice way - I rather like it! 🦊 "The Weird World in RGB", 22m
Fascinating of human perception, CRI, and why "purple" is a lie (cc: @azure).

#actuallyAutistic folks

Who else feels like corporeality, as in having a physical meat body, kinda bites?

I feel like an alien driving around a meat robot, that takes a lot of precise maintenance and I have to do it right. I'd like to be a being of pure energy, or baring that, in a computer or robot that I can move around to different computers/robots if I wanted.

(just boost if you don't consider yourself autistic)

Below the fold (since Mastodon aggressively collapses "long" toots):

"Take On Me (a-ha) on Dancing Toothbrushes (+6 Other Electric Devices)" 2m:44s, by Device Orchestra.
"Three googly-eyed electric toothbrushes dance and play Take On Me by a-ha together with 3 credit card machines and 3 typewriters."

This kind of silly, interesting DIY fits right in with my interests.

I've barely gotten back into , and feels amazing. Gonna take some re-learning on my part, though (and I'm not just talking about the change to left-click for select).

Packing for a weekend:

Laptop, phone, e-Reader, paperback books, wireless headset, wired canalphones, four kinds of tea, electric kettle, French press…

Oh and throw in a change of shirt, a pair of underwear, socks, toothbrush, comb, and deoderant.
