Lucky number 7

For the second time this week, my commute was delayed by a “security incident” on the #yeg LRT. Three stations closed!

I really wish we had safe, predictable transit.

And we're done: we installed the plant wall this weekend! I'm pleased with how the casing makes the wall look like a little window into some distant jungle. The shadows cast by the plants are so dramatic.

Time for electrical on the plant wall: hooking up timer switches to run grow lights and an irrigation pump.

My bird of paradise is putting out a new leaf! The leaf large enough that it has to unfurl in segments. #plants

Where are the Albertans on mastodon? Where’s the #yeg gang? Any handles that folks reccomend?

When you ping me, I still see it on my site :) I still get notifications from you (and can reply!)

Congratulations Alona! The department is lucky to have you as a permanent fixture.

Every couple days I do a check to see who's migrating over to mastodon using debirdify. Up until this week, it was mostly AI people who were making the move. Interestingly, it seems like the migration has broken out into the "chronically online but not a techbro" community.
