"whatcha doin this morning?"
"not much, just studying mastodon's DB layout so I can possibly try coding a word-counting script for @rjl20 to run on all of oulipo-town's posts"

actually @rjl20 is probably a coding-knowing folk whom I can possibly talk into writing such a script (or possibly bribing - what kind of suds do you drink? :))

@ranjit I could probably do such a thing. What kind of word-counting is it you want?

@rjl20 thank you!

I'm thinking a how-much-a-word-occurs chart: oulipians said "snail" or "Snail" or "SNAIL"... on 878 occasions, "flag" on 7557 occasions, and so forth

@ranjit Splitting local toots from far-away toots looks a bit tricky, but I think I can do this post-lunch.

@ranjit Minus words from DMs: oulipo.social/words-20180910.t

(Naif coding: singular and plural forms both show up in list, stray punctuation on occasion, &c.)
