Every day I go to work, like a true professional, with knee-high cat hair on my pants because the cats keep rubbing against me.
Knee-high cat hair on pants is a mark of honor. Why *you* don't have it?
There's a rain of leaves following the night of frost.
Changing seasons: so far, so good.

I do not for a moment believe that nontechnical work is lesser work, or people doing nontechnical work should care a bit about computering nonsense.
Or Roman numerals, for that matter! My ancestors gave the world Hindu–Arabic numerals for a reason. 😜
"How do you exit four?" Show more
I wanted to share this story I heard from a colleague.
Nontechnical person interviewing intern candidate asked a technical question:
"How do you exit four?"
"For? As in... how do I exit a for loop?"
"No, four the editor. How do you exit the four editor?"
The interviewer wanted to ask about quitting "vi" the editor, but they got their Roman numerals wrong.
I just want to say first off, thank you everyone for passing my original post around! I’m about halfway to my goal, I hope to finish by the end of this week ✨
They’re $25 for avatars $75 for waist up! If you need more samples let me know or check my original post! Also yes, I do men and furry! Drop a line here if you’re interested! https://goo.gl/forms/qwULOifjx29G7YZs2
Also it seems that GIMP omits a whole bunch of EXIF data when exporting to JPEG (such as lens ID), and it seems that the solution will involve hacking libexif... and... libexif lives in a Sourceforge CVS repository? 😫
I hope I am wrong about some of these observations.
Also I have an SD card stuck in my ole Thinkpad's card reader slot.
Also exfat is a funny thing.
My camera doesn't like SD cards formatted using mkfs.exfat. And cards bigger than 32GB have to be exfat. So I need to format these cards using camera. Mmkaay.
If I mount an exfat SD card in the computer, remove it without unmounting, and then insert the said SD card into the camera, camera will claim that the card is not formatted.
Once I remount the SD card, do the unmount dance, it will suddenly be clean nice and usable as far as the camera is concerned.
I actually updated my camera's firmware and that wasn't bad as I feared at all
Discussions (using the term loosely) about software licensing are always full of developers bitter about the GPL because they feel entitled to using other people's code in their proprietary product and get mad when they can't. I have a feeling that if I wanted to use their proprietary code in my free project the reaction would be different.
Some fonts make "–" (Unicode 0x2013) and "-" (ASCII 0x2D) look alike and this leads to much consternation. This is a lot more fun when Outlook replaces hyphens you type in with fancy Unicode, and people copy-paste stuff from email into their iTerms.
Anyway, this is a story about how Emacs describe-char command saved my sanity.
The lesson of the story is that we should bring back the ASCII ribbon campaign against Outlook and HTML email.
Also I should stop using Outlook, but alas.
I liked it better when it used to be dark outside at the time I show up at work. It's only Monday morning and I am already disoriented.
I think I should refuse to participate in this nonsensical biannual clock adjustment ritual.
It has been noted that being poor is pretty expensive in America. Here's yet another example: residents of Chicago's poor neighborhoods pay more for water.
Is this egregious, or what.
You can't stop me from posting pictures of Ammu cat either
We could use a Vietnamese interpreter for Tipsy's parents. We would prefer someone in the LGBT community. Any volunteers would be lovely
