This weekend I had my 1st successful capture and decode of a NOAA satellite pass. I captured it on a handheld Yagi antenna. The doppler shift was corrected in real-time using Orbitron and the audio was processed in WXtoIMG.
LRPT has a pleasant, IMO, sound with a 2khz tone and kind of a tic-toc in the background.
Here's a link to some of the captured audio: https://send.firefox.com/download/b2037ad57c/#CjDNmX-QAAQZRlwIekdDAw

Today I finished migrating all of Panic's websites over to nginx. panic.com had 15+ years of accumulated .htaccess files, weird php scripts and obscure apache features. It took a couple of weeks but its all done and apache is now retired. fwiw nginx with php-fpm is serving the same load with a much smaller memory footprint.

A couple weeks ago, my dear friend Melissa confided in me that she was getting her ducks in a row to run for City Council, in the seat being vacated by Mike O'Brien. Today, finally, she's gone public with her initial campaign:
She's running on a platform of sustainable, affordable, and secure housing, density in walkable neighborhoods. Give her a look and if you've got a few bucks give her some of those too.

@sjw It looks like Moa isn't working with your Pleroma instance. Your instance doesn't use numeric IDs for messages and that's causing a problems. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.
