    Hooray; I have registered for the FSF's yearly LibrePlanet conference in March. I plan to arrange another of those unofficial pre-conference dinners consisting of an informal dinner and drinks for people who are in town on the Thursday night before LibrePlanet.

    I just spent probably close to 20 minutes trying to diagnose a networking problem and starting to question my own sanity when I started to doubt my own assumptions and did a reality check. It was plugged into the wrong ethernet port. Facepalm.

    Ethernet rox.

    There's no such thing as "the wrong Ethernet port" 😎

    It's getting colder so it's time to get the nice heavy blanket out of the closet to stay warm at night.

    I've noticed the cats really seem to like this blanket. Not only do they spend a lot of time laying on it I've noticed they like to knead on this particular blanket far more than any of the others.

    Heavy blanket rox! 🤘 🎸

    I combined applesauce and vanilla ice cream. It came out pretty good.

    Yum, vanilla! 🤤

    To those that like to put ketchup on everything, do you do it recursively by putting ketchup on your ketchup?

    I don't do that myself, but I'd assume they do 🍅🍟🍅

    I learned there are multiple consulates nearby. Can I go there and request asylum from Trump? :)

    That should be your constitutional right!

    I have been collecting freely-licensed text-based games and have a bit of them in the Games section of https://jxself.org/git/

    I wrote a small thing to grab random words out of the dictionary file on this computer and played a game with myself to make a sentence out of them. It's been fun. The only rule is you have to use all of the words.

    It seems to have revealed strange things happening in the world. Like: the coffee and fork are taking a taxi to the tram at sunset.

    Also, that the judge played hardware bingo under the carousel with a frog and won. The reward was the icon of a bottle.

    Strange mental images indeed.

    I had a dream last night where some employees at Activision got together and were able to make all of the old Infocom games be free software. (Activision bought a company called Infocom in 1986; Infocom had made some classic games like Zork.)

    I can't seem to stop petting the cat. Whenever I do he pushes his head into my hand to continue, as if to say "more please."

    I have found that I really agree with the ethical and social issues that RMS brings up in his talks about free software. I've renewed my FSF membership with $1,000 ($500 from me and $500 as an employer match.) I really like that I can donate to the FSF and my employer will match it. I sent an email to the FSF saying my expectation is that they will stay true to the way RMS has led it over these years. I intend to continue to be supportive of the FSF for as long as that remains true.
