Owning a ThinkPad is something that feels a bit strange and magical. I don't know why but it's just one of those brands that has a certain feel to them. I can often say I don't care what shoes or jacket you wear but please tell me why you have the computer you do..

It takes a good long while to get set up with a new computer. But having well organised backups of important files ready for import helps tremendously.
They say #syncthing isn't a backup utility and they're probably right. But in this case it has been an amazing tool. 10/10 recommend!
I've made a little over 150 toots in a little over 60 days. All in all it seems that I use my new instance just like the old one. Switching has been a success. (shout out @mastohost )
Doodeling in a meeting. I love a good maths-doodle, it helps me #focus :)

hmmm... Maybe I should #knit a skirt?

Almost all of my data transfer is over network nowadays. It is 2019 after all. But being the friend of redundancy that I am I actually got, for the first time in years and years, a new USB stick today.
The weird kind that still accepts the old standard, we will laugh at this in a few years, but right now it's pretty sweet.
The graphic on my old #popsocket was pretty worn out. And this thing is the best gadget I've ever gotten for another gadget. So I decided to paint it one of my favourite colours.. The same as my table!
Sadly didn't think to take any before pics :/
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?".
