I decided to find out why Emacs is such a big thing with programmers, developers, writers etc. I found out it ships with OSX. Which is nice. Then I tried the tutorial. With all the keyboard combos. Is it correct Emacs has quite the learning curve? I'm not afraid of keyboard-work but I quit the tutorial at 40% or so because boooo-ring.....too much at once perhaps? Any other pointers to "get started with emacs"? I am willing to learn and change my point of view. For now I stick with VSCode.

A lazy day off with the family. After the funeral of my mother-in-law yesterday and all the arrangements that come with it we had to make last week, we really needed some downtime.
No walk in the woods, no beach, no sun in the park. Just the four of us at home, chilling in a hammock, finishing a jigsaw puzzle, reading and just be together. We really needed it. And it feels good.
reading this article on how metastasizing corporate social media suffocated community on the internet (in particular art communities like deviantart) https://www.artsy.net/article/artsy-editorial-rise-fall-internet-art-communities makes me think that—like learning html and css—learning how to set up and administer and customize your own installation of forum/community software should be considered a basic part of internet literacy

Yesterday I rediscovered an old gem from my arcade past. Amidar, an arcade game published in 1981. You play as an ape or as a paint roller (yeah I know) Its basic format is similar to that of Pac-Man. Clear the board by collecting all the coconuts, or painting all surrounding edges. Such simple gameplay yet so much fun. Even 38 years later. To play Amidar on OpenEMU, you can find some ROM images of the game in various online places... #arcade #retrogames #coinop
Found one of my oldest Youtube videos, june 2005. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uv1QaBNvIzA What was actually a pretty boring evening with beer and mini gokart racing turned out to become a speedy Drum and Bass video ;-)

What would be a good POSSE solution to post a photo from my phone on my blog and distribute it to both @pixelfed and Instagram? I think the Instagram solution would have to go through something like Buffer? Is there a direct WordPress to Pixelfed solution already? Not too much coding and digging the dirt?
