I’m wearing a holiday T-shirt with Karl Marx on it in a rural Wisconsin bar/restaurant, this should be interesting.

If you don’t hear from me in the next 6 hours, send reinforcements.

@gollmar Hello Chris!

Welcome back? 🤔

Was reminded of this fun fact by some news:

"Tesla largely responsible for slide in U.S. home solar sales: report"

reuters.com/article/us-tesla-s

The American Society of Civil Engineers Executive Committee "has honored Elon Musk, A.M.ASCE, with the 2018 Columbia Medal for his demonstrated and continuing excellence in pushing the state of the art [...]"

Dunno, sounds like ass-kissing to me.

Here's an interesting thing: the Boring Company had no presence in 2017 Rapid Excavation Tunneling Conference (retc.org/). They just ignore people who'd been working on this stuff for the longest time. Why?

@pixelcore8 Hi Dominik!

That is such an interesting project. Have fun with it!

Looked at FOSDEM schedule and I so badly want to go...

@kensanata You're welcome!

I just took a quick look. You need to run 'cabal install pandoc-types' and then that snippet will run.

I've filed this issue:

We will have a stand at FOSDEM this year running a design clinic. Come ready with a demo of your project and your toughest design questions!

Firefox 57 can't come to Debian testing soon enough!

@jjg Or smaller county or city level ISPs, maybe?

I can't believe that the choice of ISPs in the dense west Chicago suburbs is between Comcast and AT&T. That is just one of the many ways in which we've ceded control to mega corporations.

@kensanata You can find out this stuff using Hoogle. There are two popular Hoogle instances in the internets:

stackage.org/lts-9.18/hoogle?q

haskell.org/hoogle/?hoogle=Tex

(haskell.org's Hoogle does not return a useful result in this case; weird.)

@kensanata Ah, I thought that "margin" is an existing filter!

Text.Pandoc.JSON is in pandoc-types package:

hackage.haskell.org/package/pa

You should be able to 'cabal install pandoc-types' and go.

(A problem with 'cabal install' is that it will change your package index and eventually could lead to "cabal hell", so people use Cabal sandboxes and Stack and what not. It shouldn't be a problem for you if you don't use Haskell much.)

@kensanata "margin" is not listed here in the wiki?

You can probably get around problems with Cabal by using Stack:

All this talk about #patreon and #librepay has me thinking...

In my creative work, I'm primarily a live performance (circus and theater) creator. While successful in the past, #crowdfunding has been difficult for our company because of the additional, and sometimes seemingly Herculean, efforts we had to undertake in order to create physical products for rewards.

In the end we did it, but most of it felt unrelated to the work...and in some cases potentially damaged the work because of creative concessions that had to be made.*

*The example that comes to mind was adjusting theater lights and seating to accommodate video recording for a downloadable video of the show.

While the campaign was truly a rousing success, I can't help but feel like we spent a considerable amount of our creative energies making good on "begging-related" promises.

I'm curious how those who make things that can't be turned easily into downloadable or shippable goods make patroning and funding work for their projects.

Chime in. I'm curious.

Hey friends, I'm looking for a development job in or near Austin, TX, or Remote.

I have experience in Rust, Elixir, Ruby primarily, but I've also worked in Python, Elm, Java, C, and C++, and have knowledge of HTML, JavaScript, CSS, and SQL.

Here's my github: github.com/asonix

If you could boost this around, that would be super cool.
