If you don't believe in yourself, I'll believe in you until you will too.

reminder (for myself too):
It's ok to question,
it's ok to be unsure,
it's ok to be confused,
it's ok to change you mind,
it's ok to be vulnerable,
it's also ok to be completely sure about yourself with nothing to question.

If you're having dark day, I hope there's somebody for you to reach out for. If not, reach out for me. I can't do much, but we can be confused together.

I'm Tuula and like tinkering with code and little toy soldiers (mostly 15mm ancients). I try to pick up reading again, preferably something that isn't code related. Currently that something seems to be .

I'm somewhat confused who or what I am, so you can expect steady stream of toots about that if you decide to follow me.

And I'll try to be generally friendly and safe person to be around.

me: I should keep this relatively simple
also me: what if I also modelled mitochondrial DNA?

poked around a bit code last night. Not much, basically just started up server and watched computer to click here and there to see that stuff still works. But it would be nice to get back to it again.

floppy disks? but what about c-cassette and piece of paper with list of turn counter numbers and program names?

If you think you can't do something because it's "for kids", then you've let the fun police take your sense of fun from you. Pillow forts never stopped being fun. Playing pretend with plushies never stopped being fun. Running around in the dark never stopped being fun

Ventkids are annoying Nef Anyo by building these all over Orb Vallis

I want to continue on Choose Our Own Adventures, but it takes forever to gather them in a blog post.

Would a solution be, to post a new post and just give many days to answers, so you have time to read up on the thread (all posts/parts are in the same thread).

in -25°C bucket of water turns into ice lantern in 8-12 hours, depending on how thick walls you want.
in -5°C it takes around 24 hours.

and after making one lantern, you're left with almost full bucket of really cold water, so it's a great idea to add some more cold water and make another lantern.

the wire of that lamp had to be patched as one hare randomly decided to chew through it.

hares have made path to the bird feeder where they eat seeds birds have thrown down. They have visited there often and sometimes taken a sleep during the day inside bush in garden.

job search, Germany, :boost_ok: 

I wonder if anybody out there has an open position they need to fill?

I have 10+ years of experience developing software in C#/.NET and Node/JS/TS/React, but at this point I'm willing to consider basically anything software engineering-related as long as the people are nice.

Especially if it's in Berlin and especially if it involves Rust or Elixir, but anything else would be great too!

they're all frosty now. left one I made four hours ago and right one yesterday evening.

It's been cold, so we have been making ice lanterns


yesterday was pretty terrible day already. Today started me stepping on kid's favourite headband that promptly broke. I should have learned by now that there might be things lying on floor :(

Already want to hibernate for rest of the year.

Mmm... been waiting all December for the book to arrive.

Books and Bones by @vicorva

Coincidentally, containing all topics that I was looking into - healing magic, necromancy, and shapeshifting.

Already finished Chapter 4, and am loving the lore between chapters, and the descriptions. ^^

So this month the #FediverseBookClub will be reading

Books and Bone by Victoria Corva ( @vicorva )

You can find the book in DRM-Free format here

Since we are just starting to read today you still have plenty of time to pick up the book and join us. We hang out on XMPP in the following room

Everyone is free to read at there own pace and we try to have our discussion around the last week of the month.

Even if you don't want to join us you should pick up/read the book anyway. Looks like a real interesting read. I mean come on necromancers who does not like those??
