i've had the clojure slack muted because it was too distracting, so i have no idea what's going on. what happened?

dear usps: the mail goes _in_ the fucking mailbox. it's pretty simple. mail. in mailbox. not on ground near mailbox.

_finally_ got 0.8.0 of npm.im/zeelib published! now with docs, kinda!

i just successfully found a file in my music directory that had no english in the filename or three directories leading too it. i think this means i'm getting better at korean :3 yay

this really has been a dream. i already had meat, beer, ice cream, cigarettes, and things to do at home. a drama to finish and documentation to write. and it rained today, which was also nice. i feel so much better after not having to see other humans for a couple of days.

since 6:30 pm friday i've only walked between three rooms and my balcony thing, and that's been so fantastic. it's _really nice_ not having to go do things for an entire weekend.

@munin @hobbsc I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Linux,
is in fact, Systemd/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, Systemd plus Linux.
Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component
of a fully functioning Systemd system made useful by the Systemd init system, shell
utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by Lennart Poettering.

....well. Apparently those snotty little systemd twerps are starting to demand other codebases taint themselves so that systemd can spread its corruption.

i think i remember seeing something a while ago about harfbuzz issues, or something? anyway, i can't figure it out. :|

has anyone here ever had any luck getting ligatures working in a libvte-based terminal? is that still completely not a thing?

@bctnry all guys who think they're completely straight should watch this mv imho

*me watching blood, sweat & tears by BTS*
me: oh is he going to kiss that statue if I'm the one who - oh he's wiping its tears - if I'm the director i'm gonna make him kiss the stat-
*the man kisses the statue*
me: yeah that's right. how could you not do that when you walk toward a statue in an MV.

but people saying 'look how horrible this JS is compared to this other thing' when the JS looks like it was written by someone who skimmed a jQuery tutorial once _really_ doesn't present the community very well. So don't do that.

Chances are foo-lang is pretty great, & can stand up on its own merits. Talk about those, not how bad your half-assed bar-lang is in comparison. I see this a lot with functional languages that compile to JS, especially, & it's sad, because most of those languages are actually really neat & there are a lot of good reasons to try them,

One of my biggest pet peeves is when people talk about how great foo-lang is as an alernative to bar-lang, & it turns out they're just shit at bar-lang, or write deliberately bad bar-lang in examples to try to make foo-lang look better. Don't do that. If you can't write decent, idiomatic bar-lang, you don't get to hate it yet. If you _can_ and are writing it like someone who's never read a tutorial on it intentionally, you're just making foo-lang's community look like assholes.
