@digitalthan Hmm, or I could go with cm of notation, at around 8cm a track.

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!

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.

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.
