I just love photographs of a and in general. I'm don't suffer from , but I can definitely see the attraction.
Closeup they can look like awesome alien landscapes, especially when enhancing the reds and blues a bit. The that Google Photos made here of the three shots that I took, has a bit of a similar effect.

The evening was hectic, and I almost forgot about the #LunarEclipse. I had literally just put my son to bed when I remembered, "The #eclipse!" We went out to see if the sky was clear.

Clouds were rushing across the sky, but for the most part, it was clear, and we had a perfect view of the #moon looking like a dark brown chunk of rock in the sky.

(Then I spent 10 minutes fighting with camera settings while he went back to bed.)

Ever considered the origin / meaning of the term 'footage'?

«foot + -age […]
footage […]
(uncountable) An amount of film or tape that has been used to record something.»
en.wiktionary.org/wiki/footage

So, in this age of digital media where most of every day 'footage' is rarely even recorded on film the term really doesn't make much sense anymore.

Didn't realise it myself till mentioned it in his latest Tape Recorders of Mission Impossible 2 () video.

in the mean time I'm using Firefox-headless instead; seems to be a tad easier to get to do what I want. :)
So, I now got a few lines of python that will use splinter + geckodriver + firefox-headless to load a post, 'click' on the 'View x previous comments' link to expand all comments, take a full screenshot and save the HTML, all while using my signed-in, actual, Firefox profile.
That should help make backups of my posts along with their comments.
Now to feed it my post URLs.

I'm experimenting with and was hoping for it to be able to use the exact same browser context as if I were running it Chrome normally. I've tried passing the appropriate profile via --user-data-profile, but that doesn't seem to make a difference.
Any here have any pointers for me?

Time to bundle up! I wish I could say I knitted this hat but I didn't. I couldn't convince my friend to sell these on etsy but I think they'd be a hit.

non-programmers are an important part of open source projects. non-programmer contributions are valid and useful and not second tier or otherwise less valuable.

it's easy to say programmers are the only value-add when you're fortunate enough to have enough non-programmers that you can take them for granted.

if you take away the feature requests, translations, and general chatter - many OSS projects would have never been more than flawed, narrow use case tech demos.

I dreamt two groups (can't recall if they were species or just nations or something else; might've watched a bit too much Star Trek) at war for a long time, created something/someone together in an attempt to settle their differences.
It however was filled with so much animosity, that it was being consumed by self-loathing, fear of itself and lack of self-confidence, that it did more harm than good. It became a scapegoat and all that negativity was still so palpable when I woke up...

I think it would be neat if itch.io was console-ized. As in they created an OS image and a controller friendly interface for browsing, launching and getting games from their marketplace. Maybe target generic x86 machines and some popular arm boards.
