Haven't played Elite Dangerous in a long while. Just fired it up again and remembered I was on my way to the black hole at Cygnus X-1. Just finished that trip.

Teenage Rush fan me would be proud of adult Rush fan me. toot.lmorchard.com/media/TZshH

It's not super awesome yet, but my in has progressed to a space ship that shoots bullets that make janky falling asteroids disappear. toot.lmorchard.com/media/TEvaz

I haven't been posting here lately, but I feel compelled to inform you of this:

This kitten just sprinted down very noisily from somewhere in the attic, down the stairs, across the house, finally to jump onto my chest and immediately curl up purring.

Still have this disco Star Wars album by Meco from when I was a kid and it tickles me to play it toot.lmorchard.com/media/wha63

How many arcades had kittens in them, you know for that extra bit of challenge on the old Centipede?

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

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.

So I added some more LEDs and ported my pumpkin code over to an ESP8266. Things are weird now toot.lmorchard.com/media/1eU02

Reviving & reassembling my old NES gamepad controlled, LED eyed pumpkin for times. Thinking about adding an LED mouth and switching to an ESP8266 for wifi control from my phone. Trying to upload a little video, but Mastodon seems not to like it.
