Is there anyone who has a laptop for a good friend of us? :blobcathearts:​It doesn't need to be anything fast or new, if it works she will be so happy..!

It's for a good friend of us, she's the daughter of another good friend :blobcatgiggle:​ But income is not much and we keep an eye on second hand stuff but yeah..

Wow. "Building broke". Our Indonesia tech's job is to get the airport's weather system network back up. And so he does.

My favorite part is the brick as a mousepad. No desk, no chair, no roof... But I will provide these people with a mousepad. One that won't blow away in a tornado.

Even in darkness you can find small points of light.

How to make your PeerTube videos much more discoverable on the Fediverse:

Use tags without spaces in them, for example, use "OpenSource" instead of "Open Source", "ArtHistory" instead of "Art History", "PianoMusic" instead of "Piano Music".

Why this works:

Mastodon includes PeerTube videos in its search results, but any tags with spaces in them are ignored.

To make your PeerTube videos searchable on Mastodon, remove spaces from your tags.

Dementia, parent, any advice to share? 

My Dad has fairly advanced Parkinson’s driven dementia and is in residential care. Because of the pandemic I can’t visit him and can only communicate by phone.

Has anyone dealt with dementia that might have some advice for phone communication?

I’ve figured out that asking yes / no questions seems the way, short sentences, simple words, and letting periods of silence go for a while if needed.

But I’m wondering if there are other things I can do?

I went to the funeral of a friend yesterday.
As funerals go, it was a good one.

Nice stories and a few laughs plus some very emotional moments.
I often want to applaud at some peoples eulogies and wonder if I started, would others join in ?

When I was getting ready to go, I selected my black tie from a rack of many and realised that it was the only tie I have worn for many years.

Ties were once described to me as the male equivalent of a ribbon in your hair.

These pieces of art were created in 2017. I was there when they were painted. Today, I returned to the area. Many have been destroyed by graffitis/scribblings, but some still exist. And here they are for you to enjoy 😊
