Doesn't look like much, but the web server on my pumpkin now serves up a web page with a remote control I can use to make it do stuff from my phone through the magic of WebSockets. Track pad on the right moves the eyes, buttons for blink & talk.

Maybe instead of Facebook, I'll just play Fallen London from now on

if we're talking giant robot mechs, I'll still go with the same thing painted on the side like the ships of The Culture universe

Had a dream that I developed superpowers and they largely centered around being able to fade away unnoticed in any situation. That would come in really handy for the holidays

I have discovered that Cosmo kitten's belly is ticklish. He will purr and run away from me into another room if I pet him there. This is now what I do to keep him from eating my breakfast. toot.lmorchard.com/media/NLxl9

Oh fun: My annual sickness has entered that weird phase where coffee tastes disgusting and all I can drink is tea. Who even am I?

Looking at my 8-bit computers, suddenly realized why I prefer 60% PC keyboards and have never had a use for a num pad. Obvious in retrospect

Occurs to me that I've liked EVE Online over WoW because I can play in loose coordination with other people - eg. hauling, building, trading

Yeah, there we go. Like what this guy did, except instead of quadcopters I'd be making weird hand gestures at lamps hackaday.com/2016/06/06/power-
