Pinned toot

So I want to be responsible, dependable and steadfast. Some people associate that with masculinity. I'd also want to be nurturing, loving, emotional and caring. Some people associate that with femininity.

a rule of thumb: a simple, elegant program that does X (possibly "straight from your command line") will not support RTL languages correctly.

It's not the developers fault. RTL on computers that are built from a low level for LTR, tends to be a bit of a patchwork thing, far from being elegant or simple, and requires a subtle understanding of problems not obvious if you haven't juggled mixed RTL & LTR texts for years.

Why hasn't anyone told me about regex earlier???!!!

The first distro I installed was 14.04. My first true linux daily driver was linux mint 17.1 (based on 14.04). What a beautiful, rock solid code base.

Finally upgraded my mail server from Ubuntu 14.04 to 18.04.


Now 4 years of quiet on that department hopefully.

The good news is that I was able to bring my mail back from oblivion from the digital ocean snapshot I took. The bad new is I have no idea what went wrong, and I just poured seven hours into this update. Installing mail in a box was so simple. Why is upgrading such a nightmare?

Upgrading my to 18.04 (seeing as 14.04 is EOL in a few days).

Wish me luck. I like having mail...

Wow! So it appears the old Saurischia/Ornithischia divide was wrong, and ornithiscia is a sister clade theropods! Amazing! Why isn't anybody talking about this! All of my kid's dino books need to be rewritten!

I just found out that Michael Prescott, of Trilemma Adventures one-page-dungeons fame, has an in-the-works created for a style campaign, and it seems to be extremely cool, with some , and influences.

Check it out!
