@gb That boom arm is great! It’s a <checks notes> Superlux HM68B.

I still haven’t transferred that wall of art to this room, but I think that’s going to be done tomorrow.

Eye contact 

@mood There's still a few in the old room!

Eye contact 

And that webcam placement is totally worth it.

I'm really digging the way sunlight hits my new office, though. (We decided to move my things to the spare room we have in the current apartment so we could both have meetings without worrying too much about noise or someone walking in the background.)

POV: You wanted a monitor with thinner bezels, but you didn't take webcam placement into consideration.

@saper I’ve been finding it helpful to identify certain patterns, especially when I’m stressed out. I do think Apple’s model of activity tracking sucks, though, they play with this obsession of “closing your rings” every day. It’s really unhealthy.

@saper That’s a section on iOS Health app. I use my Apple Watch to track my sleep.

@sphakos Thank you for sharing that with me! I love hearing those stories about your grandma.

@sphakos Whoa, that Begonia coccinea is so similar to my Begonia maculata! It looks like they’re often mistaken for each other. TIL!

That Kalanchoe daigremontiana is gorgeous! I wonder if she had any interest in Calatheas? They all have leaves that seem to be painted by hand with a bright purple-ish red underside. They’re all a bit fussy, but so was the pink polka dot plant in my experience (that one died FAST in my hands 😭).

I find it so lovely that everything works automagically on Linux. I’m currently trying to convince Windows there’s a new graphics card it needs to use properly.

Moving out 

That’s disappointing, of course, but I’m proud of ourselves for standing our ground and knowing when to back out!

Moving out 

Our first try didn’t work out. The landlord and the real state agent involved in this negotiation were in a big rush to make us sign the contract while we wanted to take our time, review it with our lawyer and propose some changes. 🚩

I met these two during a work trip—but I worked at a university lab at the time, so that still counts!
