Spent most of the day connecting old car parts to switches, LEDs and batteries teaching the kids some basics about electricity. Worked better than expected.

The follow-but-mute antipattern by @edent@edent (shkspr.mobi)
I received a rather distraught DM from a Twitter friend last week. They were upset that I was following an account which did nothing but spew out racist bile all day long. Did this mean that I endorsed their hateful views. I was confused. I didn’t recognise the specific account, and didn’t recal...

And learn from your ...

Good thing too. Brain forgets so fast.
