When @luka recently asked about strategies for coping with grief and @celesteh and I started a brief exchange about blogs, I was only thinking about past blogging.
Until I started writing another blog post a few days ago, I wasn't even conscious of how far I had retreated into my memories and the oppressiveness of November.
But I am all the more grateful to be living in the wonderful community of @calafou now.
Reading "Digital Privacy at the US Border" from EFF is raising some concerns. Does anyone know what the current situation is?
If you have a .org domain name: go renew it now. For the full 10 years.
Registration rights for .org were just bought by a private equity firm. And as part of that contract, the price caps were removed.
Anything in .org will get much more expensive, soon.
A ten year renewal will cost you a bit over a hundred bucks. Which is probably less than one year will cost you in the very near future.
Marloes de Valk, Andreas Safron, David Uitz, Fahim Amir, Felipe Castelblanco and Gertrud Haidvogl will speak at the symposium "Vaping Networks -
Will an Organic Internet save our Analog Environments?" on 20. & 21. November 2019, Kunstuniversität Linz -> https://vaping-networks.radical-openness.org/
I was getting impatient to finally start using my new wood-burning stove, but now that the day has come, suddenly I feel nervous about it.
So I'm procrastinating by finding a thousand other things I need to do first.
In the meantime, the cats have apparently decided that they are not leaving the heating pad today.
In my ongoing exploration of machine translations and informal online communication, I was recently alarmed that "I am helicopter to ovaries" might be a frantic mistranslation of a medical emergency, but with human intervention I learned that "me tiene hasta los ovarios" is an expression of annoyance - wonderful, in my opinion, even if unfamiliar to machines.
Today's puzzle: How insulting is it to refer to someone as a turkey in Catalan?
While day-to-day life in Calafou continues to provide ever new challenges, interesting new things to learn, and unusual additions to my Spanish vocabulary, it is the opportunity to relearn things I used to know that still surprises me most.

Infoshop: **All Organizing Is Magic**
"In this contribution to Verso's Caliban and the Witch Roundtable, Sarah Jaffe finds echoes of witchcraft in contemporary anti-capitalism The post All Organizing Is Magic appeared first on Infoshop News."
It already made no sense to me that I found a "Linux on Asus T100" group on Google groups, but when that shut down and the group moved to Facebook, it became completely useless.
But now it feels like an even more satisfying achievement that I finally managed to fix my partition problem by myself today.

I thought my internet search skills were pretty good. Loads of neat tricks listed here

I can understand, write and speak extensively in English and German, so being limited to the communication abilities of a two-year-old in Spanish now can often be disconcerting.
While I am grateful for advances in machine translations, I am also still fascinated by their limitations.
