Due to a hilarious confluence of circumstances involving flight delays and rescheduling, I ended up somehow getting upgraded to first class on a flight when that probably shouldn't have happened. I can now report my findings:

All the vegetarian food in airports is hidden in the first class lounge. You can't buy it for love or money in the main airport, but it flows like cheap whiskey in the first class lounge.

Apparently rich people eat more morally than I thought.

@Aleums one of my fav things about neural nets working with cat pictures is that so much of the source imagery it learns from has IMPACT TEXT on it. so it learns that cats look like that, that it's a part of a cat.

@pixelfed I just deployed a Pixelfed instance but don't see anything in the discover view. Are there any cool accounts I can follow to get that populated?

I'm playing with running an
instance of but haven't figured out how its federation works yet.

Anyone know of any interesting Pixelfed accounts to try to follow? (Or any at all? Discovery here is more difficult than I expected!)

"Hooray"? I don't need your sarcasm, corporate travel website.

My new house has ethernet jacks in most rooms! Hooray!

But I cannot for the life of me figure out why the cable runs all terminate in a *tiny* panel hidden in the unventilated coat closet next to the front door. A closet with no power.

I'm putting a small POE switch in there and hoping it doesn't heat up too much...

Just checked into my hotel in Stockholm. This is the view from my bed.

If I don't check in tomorrow it's because creepy empty-eyed animals have eaten my soul and there's a mysterious addition to the wallpaper menagerie staring blankly and waiting for the next victim.

All my friends: Oh, let me tell you my favorite twist that happens three seasons in!


All my friends: Okay no spoilers sure but I'm going to tell you the twist anyway

Playing a dungeon game where a neural net is DMing has a lot in common with lucid dreaming.

Text in particular is slippery and resistant to being read.

Whoever is doing the venue music for this conference *loves* Tears For Fears.

Don't get me wrong, TFF is great, but after the eighth time you hear "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" in a single day it starts to wear a bit thin.

The good news: I found someplace to get quick vegetarian food.

The bad news: it was apparently made out of ex-lax and poison.

If anyone is at in Portland today, come say hello! I'll be giving a talk on integrating with .

So turns out I'm going to be flying across the country to present an in-depth technical talk on a product I've never heard of... on Monday.

Guess I know what this weekend will be.
