These kinds of make the tedious process in worth it :)

(Would've been nice to have had this during though... but I'll save it in case we can evolve it into with the during the end-of-the-year-event again like last year. :)

Finally created *PERFECT* ( yes, nothing less ) crate pushing.

Quite the struggle to get it _smooth_ and bug free. Double-buffering combined with switching between static drawings and an actively updated sprite when pushing, were tricky to control. #MSX #CubeDroid

from hashlib import md5
md5 = None
if condition == True:
md5 = md5(local_file.read_bytes()).hexdigest()

It took me too long to realise why was complaining that NoneType wasn't callable...

Yes, I need sleep...

(For the non-coders or other sleep-deprived, I was overwriting the function I was calling with 'nothing' by reusing the function name as variable name...)

No more white on blue icons. Society has progressed past the need for white on blue icons

This morning my cat stood next to my bowl of cereal, looked me straight in the eye, and then slowly shoved his paw right inside the bowl without breaking eye contact.

I... don't know what to do with this.

Today has been such a mood...

and it's only just started...

For those unfamiliar with , it's basically when you have a need for a solution (the proverbial 'itch'), and the easiest is to just work on it yourself ('scratch it') because you know best where and how it itches. ;)

Even if no-one else finds a use for the project, it'll still be worthwhile as it fullfilled a need *you* have or had.

Looking back, apparently I already blogged about back in #2013 on my old :

Initialised, committed and pushes another repository.

I guess that means I have yet another that grew out of a quick exercise (and another example of ) to massage some data into a more useful form, into something I consider worth keeping and publishing?

Fortunately the scope of this is quite small, and aside from some bugfixes and polishing I think I'm as good as done with it?

I'll set it to public when I feel it's ready. :)

After a few user complaints and a discussion between the admins, it has been agreed that the main #Trunk instance should be aimed towards speakers of English. This does not mean that other languages aren't allowed at all; far from it! But all people in the database should at least sometimes post in English about the topics they have selected.
So, here is yet another reminder that, if you are capable of doing so, it'd be lovely to have more little Trunks around. There is a Spanish one at least, though I haven't checked its activity. There's definitely enough Germans on the Fedi to fill several lists, so perhaps that? And there's definitely been interest in an Italian one.

I continue to be amazed at this noise about Dropbox becoming a "virtual-first" company. This is a company whose product line centers around helping people/teams work with data remotely. Their entire deal is putting data and tools online so you can work "smart". And yet, until now, all of their people were forced to be in physical offices because this is the only way collaboration works. The cognitive dissonance is ... yeah.

google, privacy, e-mail, from :birdsite: 

@jmcs yeah, apparently it is on by default for domains where "enable future security enhancements" or whatever the checkbox is called is checked.

I still feel this needed way better communication. "Guys, we will start replacing links in your e-mails since you have that checkbox checked" would have helped.

google, privacy, e-mail, from :birdsite: 

Google started editing people's e-mails in GSuite, replacing links with a link through

This means that Google will track a click on a link *in e-mail* even if you're using an external client.

I am *guessing* this is under the pretext of phishing protection, but it actually *creates* additional phishing risk for text-only clients, since now all links are links.

Mostly refactoring and updating the README, but also some minor bugfixes. Primarily to make it easier to add features the next time.

Anyway, time to wind down a bit now with some more / . and specifically.
