      @jessicadennis That does sound dramatic. There’s nothing like dealing with tech folks who have authority but who are in way over their heads.

        @ejknapp Noooo. I play a very small bit of guitar. I’ve never seen a chapman stick up close; looks like a really neat instrument.

          @gtc Already feeling it, huh?

            @bsag I’m hoping for a new MacBook Pro. My 2009 model is getting a bit creaky. iMacs, I dunno.

              Week of solo Dad begins with coffee while the young one sleeps. Wish me luck, everybody.

                Okay, one more game of Rogue Legacy. Just one more. I mean, they only take about two minutes each, the way I do it.

                  @joanna Very cool. My wife used to work to assess and plan grassland efforts like that. (Not too far from where you are!)

                    @rocketpilot No, not healthy. That’s unfortunate. There are good and bad ways to sustain and/or wind down a community, as we know.

                      I hadn't personally noticed a change in tone per se around here, aside from observing that it does seem quieter. The scope of my network and my attention being divided/elsewhere factors into this to be sure. Quite diff from the good old days of a year ago.

                        @gtc Well, sure, I'm pacing myself. Not like I was going to put whipped cream on it or anything.

                          Theoretically, if one's wife has left for a week-long business trip and the preschooler is keeping me busy, there's nothing wrong with making a ham sandwich out of the last piece of leftover biscuity shortcake and calling it my dinner. Right? Too soon?

                            If everybody is going back to twitter can I go all the way back to posting to BBSs? (I’m @schussman on the twitter. Don’t have phone line for the BBS anymore.)

                                  Three sub-five-year-olds and a box of glowsticks, a monsoon rain outside and all the lights off inside. That's how we roll on this 4th of July.
