WHO COULD HAVE FORESEEN IT
Huh. I would have expected Twitter to get its stuff together by 24 hours later, but I still have 8K tweets and "send your first tweet."
Gotta have a proper photo shoot with something other than my farsighted phone camera, and without husband's knitting bag and whatnot in the background (that is our reading-and-handicraft corner, obviously), but the flower bear is DONE.
Birdfeed says I have a whole bunch of tweets left but would I like to send my first one? 🤔
(Hopefully the databases will get reconciled soon so I can confuse them again with more deletions.)
Also I am required by law to notify everyone that I have the hicc
TBH I kinda like the exposed technical bits. You can get an add-on back that is large enough to conceal all those and still have room for a HAT (daughterboard that mounts on those exposed pins) but then you can't fold it down flat onto the base anymore.
Haven't actually stuck any Lego bits on it, but otherwise the Pi's new Smarticase is very nice.
While cleaning up the packaging I noticed it was made in China (of course) but the company is Philly-based. Looked up the address; it's a rowhouse over in southwest Center City. 👍 🥨
Hmm. API has stopped bringing up any tweets when I request my TL, but the profile still says there's a few thousand left. Guess those are deeper in the salt mines. I'll try more tomorrow. (Kinda curious what the date is on my "newest" tweet.)
So apparently if you delete newest-to-oldest you eventually clear out everything birdfeed has in its current buffer, so when you look at your page it offers
"Send your first Tweet" with a couple of pre-loaded one-click options. 😆
(It still has 10K to go, but it took it a few minutes to bring more up from the salt mines.)
(I'm kind of doing the "delete tweets older than N days" except I don't tweet anymore so... all of them.)
Tweets are 10% deleted. 👍
(On nerd account. Formerly-local account may take longer because email validation is not working on it. Apparently GMail doesn't like Twitter.)
Whatever the opposite of assistive device is, that is what this cat is. He's very clingy post-hairball and is sitting in my lap keeping me from finishing this birdfeed downloader/deleter.
Seconding the "audio as assistive device" thing.
I've been very stressed lately. But today I was pretty useless. @mlemweb was smart enough to identify that one reason is I didn't have a working headphone setup (headphones broke *and* phone aux jack broke) and that for me, headphones are an "assistive device". I hadn't thought of it that way but it's true: due to my ADD I have a hard time focusing for things that aren't at my computer... I have to listen to podcasts / music / etc to clean or focus on routine tasks.
Got a piece of junk mail that's trying to trick me into signing up for life insurance or something. I don't know what they're selling me because they don't actually provide any details, just a vaguely official-government-looking form with bulleted lists like this: https://mastodon.social/media/rF1kqSIDXipv9UD8Fhw
