Still a day behind on my posts, but the prompt for this one was "Escape" and became a very feeling track.

Happy World Standards Day, a day where the entire world celebrates international standardization... well, the entire world except the US, which celebrates this on October 22nd 😂

(I wish I was kidding)

I have a #business question (because I was recently criticized for it).

Of course one should read as most auxiliary data BEFORE the meeting (not the question).

BUT should I already have a pre-meeting with my team to then have a uniform opinion?
BECAUSE there are two ways:

a) we discuss and battle inside the "real" meeting, perhaps looking torn on technicalities / german "Zankhammel"

b) we discuss before the meeting, have a uniform opinion and then present that opinion in the "real" meeting

I don't really know what happened, but my post went all weird discordant vibes. Prompt was "Fresh Air"

Still a day behind on posts, and will probably be that way until the weekend, oh well. This one is very all over the place - some influence of jack johnson, deep forest and general 80s stuff. MT32 on the synth, eh, it is what it is. Prompt is "Travelling"

I've released version 2.0.0 of my RSS to ActivityPub converter! This now provides functionality I'd hacked in to - it requires OAuth 2.0 authorization for someone to create a new AP account for an RSS feed.

I used to run this service "in the open" but was overwhelmed by spammers. Now the admin of a Mastodon (or Pleroma or any federated server that is an OAuth 2 provider) can provide this converter as a service solely to members of their instance.

Second prompt of the day! I'm only one behind now. This one is "Decay", and picked up a vibe somewhere along the way.

So, quite a delayed submission (Sunday was a "nope" day and yesterday $dayjob drained me. I'll catch up though.) Prompt was "Gratitude" and kinda got a "country/rock" vibe.

Are there any online music publishers that are Creative-Commons friendly and would let me get my next album on popular streaming services (that I can't upload to on my own)?
I don't want to loose rights to my work, and I want to still be able to put it online anywhere I want. No exclusive deals etc.

just a note for the folks, you might be interesting to know that there's a songwriter's or tag being used for writing a song a day. and yes, I'm doing that.

Well yikes, my submission for today got a little "preachy". Not recommended for those who don't like religions being criticised. But hey, it's something!

If you like , you might like what I've done to yesterday's prompt of "Cleaning". Not that I am claiming to be anything like as talented as him. Catching up, there'll be another tonight.

Today's prompt was Birds. I was feeling a Loreena McKennitt vibe and cross-pollinated from yesterday's prompt of raven

Today's song gained a sort of rocky vibe so I went with the flow. Behold: Maybe?

Today's effort has some serious throwback to the notification tone I had when first came out, behold, Nostalgia!

I know more about BGP than 99.9999% of the world's population and I know *next to nothing* about BGP

PSA: #inktober is not a marathon, you don't have to draw every day.

If you only have the time or energy for a simple drawing or two this month, that's already way more than I can draw. You're wonderful and you rock.

If you don't have the time and energy to draw, try writing down your ideas for later -- one day you will, and they will be ready, waiting there for you.

This is supposed to be fun and relaxing, not a Yet Another Obligation.
