If a time traveller introduced a modern term (like YouTube) into early history, we would just assume the modern name was derived from the historical reference. Maybe many of our words have futuristic origins, but seem historical to us!

“...car owners tend to think that while buying a regular car increases the environmental burden, buying a hybrid car doesn’t” - this is like saying broken biscuits, or food eaten while walking contain no calories!

There are lots of things about mac that are easy (booting the full OS from USB? Target Disk mode?), but dealing with supported hardware is a painful experience.

Fuck! Setting up macos deployment systems can be a pain in the arse! Which verson goes with which hardware, updating netboots as well as deploystudio, or macs not booting from USB. I just want it to work!

If you could 3D print something at school, what would it be (that a teacher would approve of)?

I'm a STEM teacher, at a school that has just got a 3D printer. I've got SOME experience with Blender, but none with 3D printing. Can anyone recommend any tutorials for how to model for 3D printing? Lots of rubbish info around

So excited for Subnautica Below Zero! Subnautica is one of my favourite games of all time!

As long as posts are accessible to the public, the google and Facebook data machines can still index, catalogue, and compile data on the people/images/content of posts outside of their network. Getting away from the ad machine is difficult!

Well that was a very trying day. In sole care of my two kids, with no car, and a severe storm outside, and work rings me up because something has taken 90% of the network offline! The boss had to pick me up in her car and bring me and the kids to work. Turns out to be some idiot installing a FOBOT knocked the power cable to the core fibre switch out. At least the kids were very well behaved, and I got the network up and running quick enough.

I've tried so hard to use/like Scribus, but it just isn't even close to meeting my needs, particularly in regards to tables (using 1.5.4). Such a shame, I'd much rather use FOSS!

Note to self: Keeping the ceiling fan on with the air-con tricks it into thinking the room is cool. Turn the fan off, and the air-con cools the room down better!

Its 38 Celcius outside, and I have an iced coffee made out of a double-shot I put in the freezer and turned into coffee ice-blocks! Winner! :)
