testing. testing 1, 2.

In case you need to register a copy of Windows XP so you can use legacy software, use the telephone option. Registering over the internet doesn't work.

Nice to see spammers that aren't afraid to play off current events.

The first uncomfortably warm evening of the year. It's not warm enough to run the air yet. So, it's open windows tonight and sleeping on top of the blankets.

KMFDM Angst is great springtime music.

Also, if you have a Raspberry Pi sitting around doing nothing and you want to run your own gopher server, I have Gophernicus binaries built and ready to go for you. Point your gopher client to: gopher:// and you can download the source tarball or the Raspbian package.

Note: I'm not the maintainer of this software. I was just bored one day and packaged it in case someone wanted to save 10 minutes when standing up a gopher server.

Nice to see more people putting up gopher servers.

I've realized two things: First, my Plex server gets me. Second, I have a shitload of 80s & 90s Goth and Industrial.

Good morning, friends. I hope your day is fulfilling.

What I like about Mastodon #324:

Doing a check drive-by to see what's happening and seeing Covenant references.

Thanks, friends, for setting the tone for tonight. EBM in the rain. I like it.

Woke up to the kids listening to pop music. I think I'd rather discover they were drinking. Needless to say, it's time for "the talk" about what real music is.
