Howdy to folks with accounts in this spot who I probably forgot to say howdy to prior to now: @markonalark , @AABBCCDD, @alison, @molly, @insipid, @solvxrv, @coisasoutras, @Hava, @ilona, @kolinjMum, @dozns, @Nil_Pill, @tony, @Yuxx, @rjp, @micchi, @gwbaum, and @nat! (Many of whom didn't post any toots so far.) Did I miss anybody?
Shoot, that was an opportunity to try out "li¢sing" as an oulipo-compliant word.
Us, a nonprofit: *looking for cloud hosting, don't got much cash*
Microsoft: I got discounts for nonprofits! You know you want a discount! Apply now!
Microsoft: Not your kind of nonprofit.
Amazon: I got discounts for nonprofits too! Apply now!

I just laid down 11 tracks of fiddling, about 4.5m to a track, for a www toy/tool I'm working on. That's an album's worth! It took about two hours (plus a bit to upload and post), and quality is accordingly low -- first try only for all but a particularly bad try. But that's a bunch of stuff to accomplish, and I'm proud of putting it out. Yay!
I bought it in 2010. Why is it so slow now? *sigh*
Also, my computing box is only mostly up to this task. So... that's fun.
My work found out last night that tomorrow night's public virtual shindig is too popular for our Zoom account. So today was my day to study up on how bouncing a zoom thing to youtoob works. Half a fortnight's study in a day. My brain is full.

"I know OBS-fu."
Opinion on this batch: tasty, but soupy. A bit of cornstarch might fix that in round two. Gonna put bits of this batch in my morning oat groats, though; that sounds amazing.
So many zips.
Administrator of that mastodon instantiation known as oulipo.social. Works downstairs from an actual mastodon. Also @rjl20.
Mastodon is a "FOSS" social sharing hub. A multi-host substitution for capitalistic platforms, it avoids risking a particular company monopolizing your communication. Pick a host that you trust — you can still talk with all hosts running Mastadon. Any individual can run a Mastodon instantiation and join in this social hub in a jiffy.
