I host a daily podcast called Your Daily Lex. Today’s episode is about getting banned from Twitter.

Five minutes a day. Free Black Friday and always.

Dahmer, cannibalism 

I don’t think this could be a worse advertising partnership, unless they specifically advertised Meat Feast pizzas. Might need to work on the Brand Safety there, All4.

I keep seeing posts about a new 2 day tech conference that happened last week in London.

Apparently it was so terrible that there are now a number of blogs alleging behaviour on the part of the organiser(s) which was downright unprofessional at best, and fraudulent at worst. Only one organiser has been identified and I'm disappointed to discover it's someone I know tangentially through the London tech scene.

The conference promised 3k+ attendees, 150 speakers, tickets were in three figures.

As musician and technology enthusiast it gives me so much delight that Roland released everything but a 404 in their x0x series of instruments in the early 80s.

While they did eventually release an SP-404, the original 404 was literally Not Found. Perfect.

I’m going to retcon this into the HTTP spec.

I hate* to be a stereotype but I just spent the afternoon in the pub talking shit with a couple I’d never met before and we’re like best mates now. I’d die for Gerry and Margaret.

(* I’m lying. I’m totally embracing this stereotype)

I need an app or service that can remember the name of that movie that I saw advertised on the side of a bus around 6 months ago when it was in cinemas but is now available on iTunes and I’m in the mood to watch it right now but only if it’s not too long because I’m a bit sleepy this evening thank you very much.

Is it too much to ask for this simple use case?

I don’t know if this needs to be a server or client function, but the Mastodon experience desperately needs to debounce repeated boosts of the same damn posts over and over again.

Fuck UniFi and their apparent inability to choose a consistent PoE standard. Trying to install a couple of UniFi 6 Lites, and I’ve turned up with (UniFi) 24V injectors when it seems I need 48V. My fault, but I got these injectors with the last batch of APs I bought so I thought they’d be reasonably current! (No pun intended)


Went to the shop for bread and milk. Had to pass the pub on the way. Got distracted.

You know you’re old when you parked outside a gig and you’re thinking “if it gets a bit much, I can go outside and rest in the car for a bit”

Sad to see that some of the tiresome parody accounts about British politics are making their way to Mastodon. Not sure what I expected to happen, but I guess it was nice to have a break from them for a while.

But if the accounts posting as The Irish Border or The Good Friday Agreement show up, I won’t be held accountable for my reactions.

No *you’re* a little too excited about ordering a couple of Sophie Ellis-Bextor records.

My 10yo daughter had “free play” during PE last week, so she asked the teacher for some equipment to host a seance. Apparently she thought that summoning demons was good exercise.

Was listening to the latest episode of mylarmelodies’ Why We Bleep podcast, in which Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith talked about making bad music as well as good music (I’m paraphrasing what she said and butchering it to boot, I’m sure).

I was connecting the MiniBrute to the RackBrute and thought I’d just have 5 minutes of making bad music. I figured I might as well put a few seconds of bad music online while I was at it:
