i'm back in my home state for a bit, amidst the corn and soybeans and whatnot.
somebody needs to explain to all these dedicated patriots out here that flying a big old TRUMP flag at the same level or higher than a US flag is a massive breach of flag etiquette.
(and also that they're cheerfully embracing a loathsome pack of ruinous fascist shitbags, but then i guess that's sorta the point.)

twitter, metafilter, sad asshole cartoonist
this thread is a pretty good summary of a feeling i've had roughly ever since that (amazing) time scott adams got a sockpuppet account on metafilter to talk about what a genius he is and i realized that he totally sucks:
perspective is a hell of a drug.
(in retrospect, while i was right on the pure fact of the matter when i told shane that wrestling was bullshit, shane had, let's say, the ~spiritual~ high ground. i hope that wherever he is these days his life reflects the sheer basic decency of his faith in those dudes and their choreographed cartoon violence.)
so congrats to the undertaker on a career i would have assumed (before reading the internet today) had probably ended some time in the early 2000s, given that the last time i remember thinking about the undertaker i was probably still in jr. highschool, arguing with my buddy shane about whether or not wrestling was fake.

bandcamp naacp fundraiser
buying some stuff on bandcamp for today's fundraiser.
last time around, the pile of small individual purchases in my cart triggered a pile of credit card fraud alerts and i had to make 3 separate calls to get those cleared. this time i tried the "buy yourself a gift certificate and use the balance from that" trick that somebody on here mentioned, so thanks to whoever that was.
had to search to find the link: https://bandcamp.com/gift_cards/
Mirroring Wikipedia to Gemini... first attempt.
And it'd have three buttons on the front, BEGINNER-INTERMEDIATE-EXPERT, and they'd affect the complexity of the ruleset and the strength of the mechanisms.
AND A MODE FOR A 25-CENT GAME JESUS.
git branch naming
(neither of these matter much for my dotfiles that like 2 people look at; both would have to be dealt with thoughtfully for, say, a mediawiki/core.)
git branch naming
i think at this point the main practical issues for big projects are probably:
- the bureaucracy of changing remote references and the like in existing checkouts, databases, config, tooling.
- busted URLs.
the second one strikes me as more likely to be a long-tail kind of headache. i suppose i'm inclined to leave the old branch in place & document that it's purely archival until i sort a redirect based on branch or something.
