Find someone pushing for “favorites/likes”, and you’ve likely found someone building an audience. Not someone looking for meaningful engagement.

One good thing about people who drive squat pickups…. You very likely know what kind of person you’re dealing with, if you have any interactions.

My Ode grinder lives!

Had to drill out a jammed burr and do some hammering to free the burr carrier. Sanded the auger, then installed a set of Ode gen 2 burrs on a new carrier. Got the burrs aligned and it’s back to producing nicely ground coffee. Fellow support was helpful and it’s great they have parts available. The Ode is built like a tank and the gen 2 burrs fix the issue of the Ode not grinding fine enough. ☕️

A Baltimore Oriole showed up on our feeder this morning. Seems to be kinda behind with it’s migration. Hopefully this cold doesn’t hurt it.

☕️ Ode to an Ode…. It’s is with great sadness that I report the death of my Fellow Ode coffee grinder. Not sure what happened. One day it was grinding great, the next, strange noises. Opened it up to see what may have happened and found one of the burrs had seized somehow. After various attempts to dislodge the burr, I concluded it’s impossible. The Ode is built like a tank and further attempts will involve power tools and hammering. I’ve gone ahead and written it off, ordering something else. If I succeed with removing the burr without destroying things, maybe the Ode will be a backup machine.

🎥 Just caught up with Andor episodes. It has a nice slow burn. Episodes where almost nothing happens, but the intensity keeps ramping. Great show and good StarWars.

This is a fantastic change. It brings Micro.blog closer to a first class Fediverse citizen. www.manton.org/2022/10/1…

I think I’ll disable cross posting to my Mastodon account and follow/boost my blog posts from Mastodon instead.

I was a latecomer discovering Hybrid, starting around 2014. We had spent a weekend in the mountains of Western North Carolina and were driving back home through some backroads. I was listening to “Morning Sci-fi”, perhaps for the first time.

It was late in the afternoon and we came across a field that opened to this amazing sky. I had to pull off and take some pictures.

I didn’t notice the similarity until much later. Hybrid remains one of my favorite bands.

Love this time of year when it gets dark earlier. I can go for evening walks as the sun goes down, with something deep, dark and electronic playing in my ears.
