Speaking on a Panel at the OpenSimulator Community Conference tomorrow at 12:30pst. Talking about how hubs.mozilla.com works, and how we are using it (and planning to use it) for conferences. conference.opensimulator.org/2019/even…

When I cooked a can of condensed milk to make dulce de leche, I actually cooked two … now I’m fantasizing about what to make with it over the holidays (probably more ice cream!)

I do love this simple Dulce de Leche “recipe” (if “bring to boil water then simmer can on condensed milk for 3 hours” can be called a recipe).

I kickstarted v1 and v2 of the @Paperlike screen protectors. Got the Paperlike2 last night and it’s as good as I hoped! I’d been without a Paperlike on my newer iPad Pro; my students will be happy my virtual whiteboard will become legible again, as will my OneNote bullet journal

Breakfast this morning. Continuing my daughter’s weekend of cooking adventures, we made Croque Monsieur’s this morning. Cheesy, hammy, toasty goodness.

Dinner last night. My teenage daughter has been obsessing over Bon Appetite Test Kitchen videos, and decided she wanted to make Pasta al Limone (added a Charcuterie plate and asparagus with cashews to round things out) www.bonappetit.com/recipe/pa…

It’s only a matter of time until “Ok, GenXer” becomes the new “Ok, Boomer” … I escaped “Ok, Boomer” status by a few years, but I know my time is coming.

I was doing a lecture on curves in my 3D graphics class, and needed an example of a complex curved line to illustrate the need for piecewise curves. So, naturally, Jeremy Bearimy

I was showing a web page on my laptop, and a background tab started playing audio. It was surprising but innocuous. I closed it and said “well, that could have been a lot worse” and the whole class burst into laughter … uncomfortable laughter … kids these days #notwhatimeant

Hi. I’m Stella. I would like some of your breakfast, please.

I gotta say, I do like using a good camera for my “web cam” … me on zoom a few days ago.

After another random conversation with @larsberg_, I resurrected my favorite fountain pens. Left is a lovely compact Pelican, middle is a cheap Waterman that none-the-less writes beautifully, and the right is (can’t remember brand) that feels lovely

Been trying to figure out how to fix my “streaming video camera” setup (Canon SL3 is problematic). I haven’t found anything that quite fits the “features + price” zone I’m targeting. Considering a Nikon Z50.

All the camera research is making me want to upgrade my D750 to a Z6

playing with the new Fuji X-A7 + f2 35mm lens I got to use as my “webcam”

For Surveillance Economy companies, the low bar should at least be “More trustworthy than Facebook”. Shockingly, some don’t even reach that.

Google buys Fitbit. Fitbit assures customers data will remain separate and not be used for Google ads. Just like Nest did when it was acquired. And that never happened … oh, wait, nevermind

Ok, I think the time has come to admit that as much as Mastodon appeals to me, I’m not using it. Shutting down macmynatt.social … bye bye

Yummy #DateNight at home. Foie gras with apples, honey and crostini. Beef tenderloin. Mushroom carbonara. (Not pictured: kale salad, cheese plate, a variety of wine).

Removing all the street parking spots from “city center”, converting to bike lanes and pedestrian areas; how wonderful. I wish Atlanta would take the streets near the core of areas like Virginia Highlands (where I live) and get rid of street parking

One of my TAs made this, goofing around with the ray tracing assignment media.discordapp.net

Street performer in New Orleans yesterday, great voice, singing “I feel like a natural woman” #UIST2019

Dog says “The pet rabbit is on the other side of the door!”

Setting up an avatar for #UIST2019 next week. I’ll be there, but when I’m in the remote rooms, I need to look the part. Front and back.

I planted a fall garden (because I live in Atlanta, and thanks to global warming, there is no longer a winter), and it starting to sprout! (say hello to some teeny tiny radish plants)

I’m going to be attending UIST in New Orleans, and helping run the “Remote Social Experiences” setup (using streaming Twitch video and Mozilla’s Hubs platform) (links soon!). The tech is solid, I’m mostly nervous about blowing my diet. 😂
