I built a head-mounted LiDAR array that lets you see the world like a dolphin through vibrations sent through you jaw.

Bonus: you look absolutely ridiculous wearing it.

Look, I made a thing! After I saw the awesome blog post on city street orientations, I generated some charts for European and German cities (and refactored Geoff's IPython notebook into a script on the way). If you want to see a map of your favourite city in this style, tell me about it and I'll see what I can do.

Hello! Next week I will be talking in #Edinburgh (and the week after in #Glasgow) about post-consensus, cooperative decision-making ๐Ÿ˜€

I will explore why #scoreVoting is a cooperative practice when #consensus can't be reached

Please come if you can or forward to anyone in central #Scotland you think might be interested ๐Ÿ˜—

๐Ÿ˜ซ I used my ankles and calves too much at the library, yesterday: they are super achy. Considering this, today's shift will be interesting.

Otherwise, the job's quite great. ๐Ÿ˜™

@audiodude @emsenn And no, I haven't used TiddlySpot: it seems like a host for the old version of TW, which is fully flat file.

@audiodude @emsenn TiddlyDesktop seems to be just a browser for the flat file version of TiddlyWiki, not the more expansive `TW with Node`.

The browser might allow for you to access more Node commands, but I don't know enough about Node to figure that stuff out.

@lnxw48a1 bro I wish, at this point. I was a performance art piece: beanpole with Bieber hair clutching six bags stuffed full of jeans, struggling to get to the bus stop as the plastic handles on the bags give out, one after the other. I went so dad-mode on clutching these bags that my left forearm has all but given up

@Gargron On the other hand, establishing a monopoly and then benevolently giving it up by way of becoming decentralized is a fascinating strategy. Decentralization upfront misses out on low costs of switching from centralized competitors, which would allow for greater network building.

@bthall A family tradition. When my oldest niece turned 25, we celebrated "Old Lady Day". Ever since, on each son's 25th birthday, we've celebrated OLD.

@audiodude An unforeseen benefit of this is that I can now just update my site directly from the build script. Thank you so much for this!

@audiodude @emsenn Yeah, it's an interesting thing. I have been using MyBinder.org for running Jupyter directly in a browser, and getting jealous for something like that with TW. It runs on Docker, I think

@audiodude Yeah, but man, your idea is so much better and now has me thinking about other things I'm overlooking. ๐Ÿ˜

@audiodude @ 1: LMAO *gets down on hands and knees* I'm not worthy! That's such a good point! I'll change it shortly.

@ 2: I don't know; I think I just got it working this way and didn't think to change it. The Neocities CLI script thing gave me grief when I set it up, so I think I have been afraid to touch it since. I'll try it your way soon. :)

@emsenn @audiodude Regarding why doesn't have or champion a way of doing this, the TW project doesn't put much emphasis upon using TW for static setups. I think they're preoccupied with trying to win people as TW users.

@emsenn @audiodude I'm using , which I think is similar to , and they have a tool for publishing to it. It's confusing, though, so I wrote & use a push script for my setup: gitlab.com/bthall/publicwiki/b

I run this after running the usual build commands via gitlab.com/bthall/publicwiki/b

@elomatreb @Tom to overlap at a given x area without showing the shading of the area beneath*

@elomatreb @Tom The renderer might not allow for the line to overlap, so in this case, to not do so forced the line to be bumped to the left
