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 ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ, 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. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ Not sure how it will turn out.

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

I'm officially saying the update worked now. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ

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. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ

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 ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ

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.

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.

I was at the playground with the kids today and brought the camera. I wasn't gonna post any pictures of them but I also got a nice closeup of an ant. You won't get to see it though because for some reason my phone has decided that the memory card from the camera is broken even though it's not.

๐Ÿ˜ค I have a pen on order and it left Ireland a week ago. I would have expected it to get here in a couple of days but it's nowhere to be seen ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ .

@theresivjr Hi. Welcome to We do ask that people introduce themselves, mostly to not have any spamming bots. I see you've already started posting a bit. Please get back to me here or in private.

I was experimenting with making stamps today. Just did a PoC but it was fun, gonna do more I think.

Kid is sick, but getting better 

I've been to the doctor twice today, I've also been four times to two different pharmacies (including the one that's a 20 minute bike ride away). I didn't need to have my sister drive is to the emergency room (but thought so for a while) but did get an emergency appointment at the local clinic. Anyway the kid has been great through all of it and medicine is free for kids so we'll be all good in a couple of days hopefully.

Just.. Not what we had planned for today.

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?".
