So its done! I finally released a fairly easy to install (from scratch) Hugo based Static Site generator with full ActivityPub support.

It has step-by-step instructions on how to set it up for your own blog or static website.

One of the coolest features for me, other than having your static site blog posts show up as posts in the Fediverse is the support for interacting with those posts. Any replies you leave, likes, or boosts will show up in the "comments" section of the website on the page associated with the post. How cool is that!

To help some of the newcomers make connections: name 5-7 things that interest as tags so they are searchable. Then boost this post or repeat its instructions so others know to do the same. Add to the post.

So I got the raw 3d MRI source files from the hospital. Then I got the software needed to view the MRI in 3d. It let me rotate, slice, and even colorize the images. So **I** generated these images from the raw MRI. It shows my kidney, heart, and skeleton from 4 different angles fully colorized. How cool is that!

I also included some of just the heart and kidneys on its own from the same scan.

80s TV logic: No matter how far someone falls from, even a plane, they will be perfectly fine as long as someone catches them.

Even now 10 years later every once in a while I forget Blue (my dog) is dead and almost go to call for her before I remember... right in the feels.

As a diver I hate to burst everyones bubble but being neutrally buoyant in water does not resemble being weightless. You still feel gravity, you'd get closer to feeling weightless if you went skydiving.

It is **always** ok to ask a woman if she is pregnant. The reasoning is simple, if your wrong there is nothing to be ashamed of, there is nothing wrong with being overweight and looking pregnant.

How many scruples do you have?

Woooaaaa, so my new color eink tablet has a cool hardware feature i just noticed... the backlight is can change not just its brightness but also its color temperature. While that may not sound so cool for a regular screen it isnt really common on eink displays since its the actual backlight. But rea i can make my backlight as warm or cold as id like

Apparently if i drink A&W diet root beer after brushing my teeth it makes it taste like cream soda....

buried my friend and former bandmate michael nicholson on thursday. he had cancer back when we recorded the salvation navy, and was clear of it a decade ago. but it came back with a vengeance.

died last friday at hospice in brantford. left behind a wife and 9 year old child. brutal stuff.

here’s some old photos with both of us! (he’s in the red toque, hugging me from behind in the first one)


In response to:

"Why are people always sick and tired, but you never hear people who are tired and sick."

Dear Dr. Freemo: Example: "I get sick and tired of the trolls on social media who bully other people. I believe if you get tired of the trolls bullying other people that could make you sick." Actually normally for me I get tired first and then I get sick.

Sincerely, Monica Andrews, Editor-in-chief, News

What is the origin of the phrase sick and tired?
These hyperbolic expressions of exasperation imply one is weary to the point of illness or death. The first dates from the late 1700s, the first variant from the late 1800s, and the second variant from the first half of the 1700s.

Queer doesnt exist, its just a made up word with no meaning or utility.

Trans isnt a sexual orientation so it doesnt belong along side other orientations.

Therefore from now on I think im going to just refer to it as "LGB" which ill use for discussions about orientation. It might make sense to do "LGBP" to include pansexuals/poly people, as that too describes orientation.

Then maybe "TICN" for gender expression (Trans, Intersex, Crossdresser, and Nonbinary).

I think ill just start dropping these in conversations and use each distinctly different. The LGBTQ+ designation never really made much sense.

Then again maybe jsut "non-cis" and "non-straight" might just be more straight forward. But less likely to engage in useful conversation.

Oh shit Karl Urban was in a Xena episode... wasnt expecting this.

Still trying to find my people on Mastodon. Please boost if you:

-Like ice cream.

-Enjoy reading books.

-Have recurring dreams that you are a frog.

-Feel distraught when you wake up and realize that you are in fact not a frog.

-Spend your days studying ancient texts in search of a forbidden incantation that transforms humans into amphibians.

Why are people always sick and tired, but you never hear people who are tired and sick.

finally finished uploading my 750 or so ebooks to my e-paper tablet.. The hard part was going through and categorizing all of them. Cool to see though after a full day of constant use it is only at half battery. That includes with the backlight and wifi on.
