Maybe you use Solarized (colorscheme), maybe you used my Kinkless GTD sytem (which became OmniFocus), or maybe you followed my D&D clubs at a Seattle girls' middle school.

Amazing to me that we're pouring billions into AI but we still don't have good contact group sharing or calendar freetime matching outside of enterprise.

(I'm aware of every mediocre solution to the above, no need to tell me about them, they are almost all terrible)

Engaged in absolutely unsuspicious activity at a Pacific Crest Trail trailhead (doing "Parks on The Air" #hamradio on digital 17m wavelength this past weekend)

@bud_t I love using this magloop in the field and parks. Even folks that might recognize an antenna normally seem intruigued!

"The boys in the session are SO BAD at following directions. They always think they know better than, say, the red cross technique. Like, it's good to think for yourself, but you have to also think about how these rescue and recovery methods were developed! They just seem to have gotten this message their whole life that they just naturally know it all, but THEY DON'T."

My daughter (and the other girls in the session) after day 3 of her life guard training.

@Verso I was like "don't stop being angry about it, boys don't get any better about this!"

She said the only time they had a group fail at a rescue was when there were no girls on the team and it was just boys and I was like "I am not surprised at ALL"

I was just reading an article that showed some nerdy nerd stuff in a text editor, and the theme of the editor was pretty clearly Solarized, and as is always the case whenever I see Solarized, I thought “Oh HELL yeah, my old pal, Ethan, invented that!”

So as ever: yay, Ethan!

@hotdogsladies sadly i haven't invented a personal website that isn't woefully out of date, but thanks my friend.

My understanding based on market availability is that they are called the #Fuji X100 series because they only make about a hundred of them

Today started as:

"i'll spend 15 minutes swapping our under-sink water filter"

and progressed to:

"the gasket in the water shut off valve has disintegrated"

and wrapped up as:

"I spent most of the day replumbing all water lines under the sink"

(at least now all water is filtered through a single filter, including our instant hot water tank, our main faucet, and my coffee machine)

I should be working on other things, but I am finishing up my open letter to the #ARRL. I'm really motivated to get this finalized and sent.

If you would like to be a co-signatory, either reply to me here (public or private) or comment in the doc by Monday Feb 19 at 1200 UTC.

And thank you again for helping to make our hobby more inclusive.

pls boost!

@bud_t Thanks for writing that Bud. I've signed in document and fully support the message in that letter.

ethanschoonover,
@ethanschoonover@mastodon.social avatar

@bud_t FWIW when I go to print I see that the signature I added disappears. I'm assuming that's because it's in some sort of pending-change state that needs to be accepted (which I'm also assuming you are already aware of, but felt that I should mention it just in case)

ethanschoonover,
@ethanschoonover@mastodon.social avatar

@bud_t figured! Just wanted to make sure I hadn't messed up your process. Again, thanks for this. I cofounded Cascadia Radio for the same reason: improving inclusivity in the hobby.

Another random interval "are you checking your email" test for my kids.

This time I make them confirm legitimacy using an out-of-band channel and a code.

I ask them what information they use to evaluate the mail legitimacy.

Finally: They must include a quote from Gravity Falls or Adventure time.

Absolute mic-drop reply from my daughter. I may ding the lack of a comma after however but I'm inclined to forgive based on the strength of the Princess Bubblegum quote.

@Legit_Spaghetti I would love to see that scenario play out tbh. sibling psyops encouraged. ;)

Gray day in Seattle so playing some melancholic music (this whole KQ album is pretty on point for a pensive mood) https://songwhip.com/kronos-quartet/the-butchers-boy

FAMILY DEMO NIGHT: we have regular demo nights where we show off software we're using.

Each kid gets up & screencasts their device & walks us through apps or tips. I demo as well, but not every time.

This week:

Son: Best screentime apps & why he picked ScreenZen (I'm using it too now)

Daughter: Notion for classwork scheduling & Goodnotes for her note-taking (she used to be paper only, but likes the flexibility of iPad note taking).

(we pair this with fam reading time after)

Last night I made pastrami on dark rye sandwiches for my kids' lunches and the rye was too wide to fit in their lunch containers so I trimmed them and kept the ends for my own snack.

My daughter today (she knows me):

Hard to pick a favorite Polish film poster but this one from the 80s by Wieslaw Walkuski for Rosemary's Baby is top 10 for me.

Have a favorite Polish film poster?

@NotThe There are a couple stand out episodes like Gingersnaps, where there was some real personal insight that occurred during the episode (that one does also have the only swear word we let in though, from quoting the film,... all other episodes we worked overtime to avoid language)

@ethanschoonover@mastodon.social avatar

If you love horror movies please give my daughter's TeenHorrorCast a listen. She's so right that she, as a girl, had a really different take (and the right take I think) on this film than I did at first, and she changed the way I thought about it completely.
