coronavirus, mh(-) 

@dredmorbius On a personal level, just feeling a bit low. Where I am, covid cases are rocketing. It seems likely this'll continue and probably worsen over winter. We're about to go in to a stricter lockdown next week. Can't see people, and separated from my family. Some other personal things. It's getting dark early, it's getting cold.

Bleh - it'll be OK, but it just hit me a bit today, winter is on the way, and winter 2020 feels like it'll be a bruiser.

@neil Hugs.

Yeah, times are a bit of a pisser. Muddling through the best we can seems to be the best option possible.

There's a certain amount od personal agency we have, much that's beyond control. Good times involve much illusional agency.

Be as gentle with and to yourself as you can be. Others too if possible.

Where you at geographically? Generally, vaguely, not asking for addresses.

I was born in North Dakota which has worse winters than Alaska...now in Wisconsin, which is not as bad, but still, has a real winter...

@neil
Also, I started looking at some of the stuff you are working on.
Up for questions?

@bhaugen Absolutely, please fire away, always happy to share and discuss. Though I don't feel like I'm working on anything concretely, so intrigued what you've been looking at!

> intrigued what you've been looking at!

commonplace.doubleloop.net/ and
doubleloop.net/
(from your profile).

@neil
commonplace.doubleloop.net/ - really nice design!
This too: commonplace.doubleloop.net/wee

But as you wrote, it's a maze. Somewhere I ran into some posts with (I think you called them) reactions, which seemed to be from the fediverse. But now I can't find them anymore.

Ok, that was here: doubleloop.net/

Not reactions, interactions. Better!

So is doubleloop.net a collection of toots and interactions with them? Mirrored automatically or selected by hand? Let's see...

@neil
Well, I don't see that toot on doubleloop.net yet...so if automatic, not fast...

@bhaugen commonplace is my personal wiki - my garden in the garden and stream metaphor (hapgood.us/2015/10/17/the-gard).

doubleloop.net is more my stream, for chat and interaction. It's an IndieWeb site so supports webmention for interactions - I also use brid.gy to try and hook it up to the Fediverse. It can autopost my posts to my site to Fedi, and then monitors for interactions and tells my site about them.

It's all a bit Rube Goldberg. But I love 'em both

@bhaugen The North-West of England, so meteorologically-speaking I have it easy

@neil But dreary in winter, no?

We get cold but also a lot of sun in winter. Bright and cheerful if you can handle the cold. Just dress warm and find some outdoor activities you like.

@neil yeah I was just talking to someone about this today. I've been dreading it since, well, March
