Tonight I actually did see "the new moon with the old moon in her arms" and was reminded of that old Scottish shipwreck ballad, which, if written in 2021, might end like this:

Half o'er, half o'er to Lago-a-Mar
'Tis fifty fathoms deep,
And there doth lie Sir Michael Pence,
Wi' the Krakens at his feet.

My friend @somarasu is interested in getting into ham radio. If that's one of your hobbies, give him a follow and share your favorite resources :)

"It was a bright cold day in December, and the clocks were striking 275,386."

--George Orwell, "Twenty Twenty"

I'm still not completely sure whether I'm autistic, but for the last few months I've been trying out assuming that I am autistic, and I've found that everything makes much more sense that way. And maybe that's all that really matters.

(By the way, I do have the SEEKRIT KOAD to enter the chat rooms; I just can't find the rooms themselves or the place where I should type in said KOAD to enable me to enter. One further question: where are the meditations archives, etc.?)

Plus and also, where are the chat rooms? I don't see any way to access them via the Patreon app on my phone, nor from the main page at theliturgists.com (which seems to only enable you to sign up and pay, but not to log in). Signed, Confused.

Greeting, / earthlings. I just became a patron of The Liturgists on Patreon. Now I'm confused. Does this give me the ability to log in to theliturgists.com on the web and access communities, podcasts, Sunday Thing, etc., from there? Or must I go through the app on my phone? And if so, how do I find All The Things (tm)? Thanks.

🤕 oof, bad day to be a salt consumer

saltexploit.com/

Looks like salt has unwittingly distributed a WORM and is now being subject to crypto-mining backdoors, which is anyones guess what the actual use of these will be for...

#exploit #salt #supplychainpoison

Happy ! The date on which (as one wag put it) a smaller Mexican force defeated the French army, back when "defeating the French army" was actually something to brag about.
