last night's loaf came out pretty good, it's one of the best crusts I've gotten. I need to get bannetons and couches and a lame, though, and I might adopt Max Bernstein's approach (https://www.seriouseats.com/2014/10/breadmaking-101-the-science-of-baking-bread-and-how-to-do-it-righ.html) of using a combo cooker instead of my deep dutch oven.

it turns out, gradually getting better at making bread from scratch is _very satisfying_
I should experiment with small/fast map generation algorithms, see if there are some that give good results and are still feasible for use on very limited systems (6502, e.g.) #procgen

this was a good movie, I liked it. there were a few fat jokes which should have been left out. there's some screen flashing which might be a problem for photosensitive folks. Spider-Gwen rules, and should get her own movie. May and Olivia are clearly exes.

It's really weird looking at the old stereo system my family had back in the 80's, with the speaker hookups that were just bare wires we had to jam into holes, and also they didn't even have always on microphones with permanent connections back to entirely unaccountable multinational corporations who don't pay their fucking taxes. Primitive AF.
this is also a problem—aside from being both evil and monopolies—with "sign in with [google/facebook/twitter]": just about all sites serving as openid and/or oauth identity providers ALSO do something else. I think ideally an identity provider would be ONLY that, and you'd just have a public profile page on it that links out (e.g. with rel="me") to the accounts you want to verify as yours.
But that displaces the identity verification problem to a hypothetical other service, rather than solving it.
On the other hand I kind of think a trusted identity brokerage protocol _should_ be separate from other services. it's just that the "trusted identity brokerage protocol" problem is also not solved AFAIK.
I guess there's data export (toots and media, follow list, block and mute lists) and import (follow, block, and mute lists), though those are still annoyingly manual steps.
And there seems to be a profile option to redirect to another account, and support for inbound links using rel="me" to verify that the account is held by the site owner.
I'm not very interesting.
