Imagine objecting to these featured app tiles! "it is sick, it is awful, it is terrible, it is pathetic".

Hate it when I distil something broken down to a minimal test case to send upstream, whereupon it works perfectly.

Toddlers are the best testers. L toddled over and touched the screen while I was moving a window between workspaces, and broke my GNOME session!

*slaps roof of complex sentence* this bad boy can fit so many main clauses in it

Another week, another pull request that doesn't compile in a project where this isn't caught by CI. (It's a "bag of crap scripts" repo. I added syntax checking for shell scripts a while back, but now there are Python scripts as well, and those weren't checked or tested…)

Twee metal band name: “shrouded in gingham”

Riffing on oulipo.social, who wants to run pangram.club which would only accept toots which use every letter of the (user's configured language's) alphabet at least once?

(Actually I think at-most-once would be more interesting and feasible but I don't know a concise term for that constraint.)

I blogged about some recent work I did to set up an Endless OS mirror network.

Jealous of people going to ! Maybe in 2020.

@v21 do you have a Patron level for adding a Mastodon mode for CBDQ? (Cheap Tusks?)

I suppose I only read poems once or a handful of times, whereas I listen to songs (of which I can recite dozens) time and time again, and one is never more than a few toots away from a WCW joke.

The DD bit in question Show more

I'm pretty sure that the only verse I know in its entirety, excluding children's books and songs, is This Is Just To Say. I know most of the bits of I've Had This Shirt but always get stuck about ⅓ of the way through, or derail into a bit of a Dresden Dolls song for some reason…

@mdales Hey, you evidently like Fender combo amps. Do you know anyone in London who might like to buy a Blues Deluxe reissue?

Postcards so far. It's surprisingly time-consuming because postcards are rarely standard page sizes. mastodon.social/media/cBJzln_q

Asking for a friend Show more

Suppose you had hoarded hundreds of postcards and wanted to scan and publish them all before recycling them. What would you publish them with? Flickr? Hugo/Jekyll/equivalent? Something else?
