Just typo'ed a servername while reconnecting to an IRC channel, and accidentally put in libera dot net instead of the correct dot chat, and you wouldn't believe where I found myself: Back on Freenode. Who've apparently secured that domain, and are using it to try to trick people back on to their services.
Started to explore a “thing I want to exist” project, which has led me down an open street map rabbit hole, and all the data I want exists it’s just going to be figuring out how to filter it (well, and displaying it and how not to download data I don’t care about etc etc)
But now I’m tired so… maybe tomorrow I’ll start 😂
My mum had an amazing sense for gift giving. Always managed to find presents people would really enjoy.
Yesterday was my niece’s 5th birthday. Got here some goo/slime and a unicorn slap bracelet, both of which were big hits.
Times like this I really really miss my mum. It’s been 11 years. Today isn’t a significant date or anything. It just.. hurts.
Off work for 2 days and get back to 189 unread emails.
My team are great but if they could be a little less productive so I don’t have to spend as much time catching up on what happened that’d be… great isn’t exactly the word I’m looking for. (Mostly it’s catching up on if any of it now requires my action, I can trust that the things done are correct)
