#HPR is looking for shows!

On hackerpublicradio.org/calendar… next week's Monday and Tuesday are currently empty slots.

If you're reading this and you have something you've been meaning to write a blog post about, consider writing your blogpost as shownotes, speaking it and uploading it to HPR. There really isn't a lot of overhead.

No need for a Blue Yeti or other fancy equipment! Your computer or phone microphone is fine, we've heard worse. I use f-droid.org/en/packages/com.gi… on my mobile for most of my recordings!

#HPR is looking for shows!

> Our shows are produced by listeners like you and can be on any topic that "are of interest to Hackers". If you listen to HPR then please consider contributing one show a year. If you record your show now it could be released in 5 days.

On hackerpublicradio.org/calendar… next week's Monday and Tuesday are currently empty slots.

The last time I contributed was three shows in the middle of last year, and before then it was the middle of two years ago when I had a good streak. Since I started full-time employment in an office I've had difficulty trying to make my hours last for anything other than eat, sleep, work, parenting and somehow spending a lot of time on fedi when I have important things I'm procrastinating.

I will try to put one in this weekend, but if you're reading this and you have something you've been meaning to write a blog post about, consider writing your blogpost as shownotes, speaking it and uploading it to HPR. There really isn't a lot of overhead.

This is a fantastic read. A look behind the scenes of the creation of the Common Lisp standard and the HyperSpec: The aims, forces, struggles, personalities and random events that caused it to be what it is.

It's a written version of a talk given by Kent Pitman, the main editor of the standard, at Lisp50@OOPSLA at OOPSA 2008:

This account here is just a liaison account, to get another view of the Fediverse and occasionally help cajole a wayward post into libranet.de that couldn't find its way in there by itself.

Started testing the ActivityPub module for Drupal on my site. Discovery of accounts on Mastodon works, now to figure out if I can start posting! :) #drupal #activitypub

The #indieweb module for #drupal is now in beta! Some smaller things can still go in, but what's left for a 1.0 release is a decent security review, anyone up for that ? :)

okay but can we stop pretending that putting a piece of cloth in front of your mouth is somehow a huge sacrifice. how is this even a discussion.

Happy Free Software Day!

I'm accidentally celebrating by just learning about all the cool organizations and people working on free software in India. As in, I learned about FSFI first, and then I pulled on further threads from there and found more orgs, and then I discovered on their news pages that today is FSD. 😀

The FSCI don't seem to have an official account on Fedi or Diaspora, but I'm now following some individuals mentioned on their website, by just searching for their usernames on Fedi and Diaspora.

ok but 'Autobiography of son of Peter Tomkins, WW2 spy and psychic guru' is a pretty good lede so I'm borrowing this one too

thanks to @clacke's mentioning of Huey, Dewey, and Louie in reference to my post about Rock, Paper, Scissors; I started thinking about the alignment of the nephews to the TMNTs. What other color coded mutant animal gangs are there?

🎉 Happy 12th Birthday, #Fediverse

It's great that you don't put all your eggs in one basket ;) Stay cool.

The Eighth Annual HPR New Years Eve Show

> on New Years Eve 2019-12-31 10:00 UTC (5:00 AM EST), we will have a recording going on the HPR Mumble server for anyone to come on and say “Happy New Years” and talk about whatever they want.

If my mental calculations are correct, and they probably aren't, that means the stream has now been running for about 7 hours, with 19 hours to go!

> We will leave the recording going until 2020-01-01 12:00 UTC (7:00 AM EST) or until the conversation stops.

#HPRNY #HPRNY2020

self acceptance not in a woo fluffy kind of way but in a "it's ok to do things half assed, just for fun, or at your own pace and fuck everyone who says otherwise" kind of way has made my life so much easier.
I am still working on it, but when I realized I was shaming myself for not having as much energy as my peers and just said, fuck it im a low energy person, I'mma live in the slow lane and like it, my life got so much easier just cuz I was not anxious about shit I can't change. I still try to eat and sleep appropriately so I can have ~some functioning but besides that, screw it. better to get things done half assedly than to never do them and panic about it

(Brene Brown and Pete Walker helped a lot with this)

Yes technically I didn't produce the wealth I got from robbing this bank but I took a risk for it and therefore should be allowed to keep it

the 2010s have been a great decade for throwing "crypto" in front of a bunch of fucking words
