So I'm making this wallet and I was gonna get the sewing machine because I always think if I do it by hand whatever I make is going to fall apart but then I googled if there is a strong stitch for sewing by hand and apparently my usual lazy stitch is one of the strongest so I'm gonna do this by hand.

Last night I found an online stationery store in Sweden so I bought a whole bunch of stickers and stuff on top of the thing I was actually looking for. This morning I got the shipping notification :) love when they are quick. Can't wait to put all that stuff in to a drawer ... Erhm πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ, I mean use it for letters and in my planner.

I'm thinking of a sewing pattern to make a new wallet. I usually just wing it so sketching like this feels like a great improvement in making less wonky things. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ Not sure how it will turn out.

@pivic I almost got the Dream Pen a few times but haven't. For me the regular pro gear works great but is a bit on the small side πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ. For what it's worth I think the nibs write similarly, the bigger difference is in the pens, so if you like the smaller one that's great.

@openess yeah it's old enough that the only things on there are Twitter and GitHub. I don't realistically use any of them any more. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ And my site that drone in the move but as you said it's already connected to here.

Do people still use keybase, since moving servers on my hosting I got an email that it broke. Is it worth updating?

@pivic nice, I mostly go for slimmer sizes, but they are all great. I only have 21k now but have had both. On modern pens the main difference is that the 14k goes on smaller pens (pro gear slim and 1911) and 21k goes on the bigger pens (pro gear and 1911 large). The larger pens fit me better. I think there's a size difference in the nib as well, but they are both great.

@pivic nice. I love my sailors, what nib did you get?

I'm officially saying the update worked now. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

Admin, hosting stuff. Will likely be fine but might break. 

I think both my site (which is what forced the update) and (that got tangled in this three day mess) work as usual now. There is more to do behind the scenes and I'm giving it one more night before calming down about the instance DNS stuff, but I think it's worked and no one should ever notice. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

Tech question, DNS 

Is there any way to tell the difference between this dns-change working and it just not having updated yet? My issue is that if it worked nothing should change, so I'm just waiting indefinitely for it to break πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

Admin, hosting stuff. Will likely be fine but might break. 

I had to make some changes to my web hosting today. This instance isn't hosted there (it's on but this meant I had to reset the redo the DNS settings in a new interface. While I think it should have worked, if we go down between now and tomorrow that's probably it and I'll be on it. Again, it should probably just update and find that it now redirects to the same place it always did.

@openess do you sync? I think I have an account but haven't really used it since I haven't used more than one device before. Does it get out of the way and just work?

@openess I chose Firefox mostly (only) because I use it on the laptop. I'm switching away from chrome more than to anything else.

I finally did it. I switched the default browser on my phone. Super easy choice really since I haven't used the old default anywhere else for quite some time. But I just haven't gotten around to it before and I'm glad I did now.

Morning bike ride. I've been going out for a ride on the weekends for a couple of weeks now. It's too hot during the day this week but morning ride is great.

Today it entered Sweden. I'm guessing it will be here tomorrow or Monday. No idea where it's been tough. I would have said customs except it's from within the EU, so who knows.

Did some much needed computer maintenance today while kid2 had her nap. Great use of time and not at all as much work as I feared.

In a decentralised social media it makes sense to host yourself. That's what we decided to do. This instance is run by two nerds, mostly for the why not of it. Feel free to join, and we'll hit you up with an "Hi, who are you?".
