this is the first year that I have done fun a day where I picked a project where the minimum time I can spend and get something done is 45 seconds, and I am loving it.

the avgs don't add up because I am heavily fudging them, and excluding one big project that is a carry over from last year.

I also only avg about 1.3 hours per day on projects, so I don't feel bad about this - though follow through feels important. I am gonna need to figure out a way to track when projects are done - but I am also gonna have to finish something to do that. currently all my projects are open ended.

started another project? One of the side effects of the journalling software I am using is I can see how many new projects I start per year

I am currently at 6 new projects for the year, avg of 1 new project every 4 days. The avg length of time I spend on a project is 3 hours.

I gotta put this somewhere may as well be here (my saving system isn't working right now :0 )

some little ascii avatars (feel free to grab one if you would like)

Why can't I get a pocket operator clone on my Android phone?

Just the white keys please, but keep it minor.

Some really wonderful women who I've had the privilege of working with are interviewed in the New York Times. They run a group called and it's about eschewing the venture capital grow-or-die model of running a business. While I'm more about worked-owned coops, I think "the dazzle" (as they call themselves, aka a group of zebras) does valuable work.

Their podcast (which I produced):

Got a targeted YouTube ad for a medical condition I have, and am curious what way Google got that data

A shit post that I think of between 1130 and 1230 nearly every Monday Tuesday and Thursday

I think I am starting to hit my stride with ascii drawings

Oh wait I found a release by dj Windows 7 as well.

There are "dj Windows XP", "dj Windows 98" and "dj dos" but as far as I can tell, no other DJs named after Microsoft operating systems

Spotify discovery feed is where I go when I want to hear a new take on that old preset

10k bowls of oatmeal, but it is the contents of my Spotify discovery feed.

I know that false negatives would annoy me more, but the fact that I can unlock my phone with a giant cut across my fingerprint doesn't make me feel great.

Friend Camp

The decentralized web is about trust. You should only join Friend Camp if you personally trust Darius Kazemi with your social media data. You probably only have that level of trust if we are IRL friends or have been internet friends for a long time. Generally speaking this is a small, closed community. In the end, Darius is the arbiter of what is allowed here. If you don't have a good idea of the kind of behavior that flies with Darius, again, you probably shouldn't join this instance. In the interest of specificity, we do have a code of conduct and privacy policy which you should read.

Friend Camp features several modifications that were requested by our users.

  • you can log in via any subdomain, which means you can log in to multiple accounts in the same browser session (for example, log in once on and then as another user on
  • they are no longer called "toots", they are now "posts"
  • if you have a locked account and you get a follow request, a reminder appears under your "post" button (on normal Mastodon mobile it is otherwise buried in a sub-menu and you might not see it for a long time)
  • the emoji dropdown is a neutral smiley face instead of the cry-laughing smiley
  • @mentions are rendered as "@user" for a Friend Camp user and "@user@domain" for remote users. This helps clear up when you follow two people who have the same username on different servers.
  • there is a "never ask me again" checkbox on the confirmation for clearing your notifications -- more info here
  • images in a CW'ed post are collapsed behind the CW. When you expand the CW, you can see the whole image immediately. more info here
  • When an mp3 link is in a post, we also embed an inline mp3 player. git commit here
  • 500 characters of profile text git commit here, requested by @emma

Important Bit from the Privacy Docs

If you want decent privacy (the info doesn't leave this server), the only way to do that is to set your account to private, only accept friend requests from other users, and only ever @ mention other users. Once you start talking to people on other servers, all bets are off. Any private message you send to someone on another server could be looked at by the admin of a different server. This is kind of like email: if you are on a private email server, and you send an unencrypted email to a gmail account, congrats, Google now has the content of that email. But also, you do this every day, so, hey. The internet!
