long weekends are good for getting stuff done. had a nice, uninterrupted 6 hours to prep the dining room for painting. still not done ready yet, but a lot closer.

Beekeeping isn't the only way to #SaveTheBees - solitary #bees are just as important. Building a bee hotel can offer shelter for wild bees, and as a bonus they'll pollinate your garden for you #permaculture style

@Pixley ska *is* good and no one can convince me otherwise.

Aw yeah! It's Shmalentines Day!

@mlemweb and I don't personally celebrate Valentines Day. Too many broken hearts, too much corporate pressure to buy buy buy. (No judgement for those who do celebrate it, we just don't.)

But we DO celebrate Shmalentines Day. Shmalentines Day is the day AFTER Valentines Day when you can pick up a bunch of discount chocolate and candy!

@cwebber keep us up-to-date, you never know when tea could be bad.

I hate frantically trying to find out which friends want to go to a show whilst watching all the good seats get purchased.

but hey that's done now and I'm going to see Coheed and Cambria in June! and Mastodon! gonna be a good time!

@cwebber ha, and you used studlify-region in the implementation!

@cwebber this is exactly what I was thinking of when I learned about studlify-region.

this is amazing!

I have done something truly terrible. Witness spongebob.el gitlab.com/dustyweb/spongebob.

Memetically mock a region of text in emacs.

@joeyh but yeah, I know about getting multiple quotes as a general-purpose technique but I feel like I don't know enough about solar to make a good judgement call about quality.

also, my roof is east-west facing. the sunlight is most intense on the west side of the house, so that's where the panels would go, but not having the ideal south-facing roof lowers the potential value of the solar panels.

@joeyh DIY is always cheaper and I like to do it but I am not an electrician nor am I willing to risk falling off the roof of a 2-story house.

I want to get solar panels for my roof but I'm not sure how to make sure I get a fair deal from a solar contractor. anyone have tips?

@Anarkat here's a guy who uses water as a heatsink to run a fridge entirely off solar power: joeyh.name/blog/entry/fridge_0
(turns out it's pretty effective)

being an adult can suck in a lot of ways but sometimes it is good. for example, I've dedicated a whole room in my house to my drum set and seed starting table.
