Some brief thoughts about again and needing help. This might grow and change over time.

My wall mounts came in the mail today! Storage and decor!

@cadadr and here you are to the rescue! Thank you so much!

Hey does anyone follow youtube channels in on ?

What kind of configs do you have for opening the link in mpv?

Hey fedi, I’m looking for a new fountain pen and have no idea what I might like.

I have been using a Lamy Safari for the past five years and I have been pretty happy with it. I have some minor ink bleed issues if I grip it wrong but it wasn’t a deal breaker.

My budget is around $50 USD.

Aha! Finally got my bspwm conf to work on multiple machines! Using chezmoi’s templating ability!

Now my trouble is that I’m getting the result of a script I’ve added to my dotfiles repo. When applying it on a new machine chezmoi attempts to fill the template before it moves the script into the proper path.

My first thought is to move my scripts to a new repo and have ansible pull that repo before I attempt to apply chezmoi? Ugh this is way too complicated. I could make the chezmoi template more wordy and not call an external script.

I got my printer set up so I can print academic pdfs again. The nostalgia feels from undergrad are massive.

Got gifted this fancy lad by a friend who wasn’t using him.

Now I gotta teach myself a bunch of new chords and come up with a name!

Selfie, eye contact 

G&G and I having banana peanut butter smoothies for dessert tonight!

Two memes about piracy. The first is a Simpson character labeled “Netflix” throwing out a drunk “mu-torrent” character. Then the Netflix character is copied into several streaming services, and the mu-torrent drunk shows back up in the bar behind them.

The second is a character in 2012 commenting that streaming is pretty good, the next panel they set down a pirate hat and say “I don’t need you anymore pal!” The next panel is 2019 and shows a dozen or so streaming service logos. The next panel the character is picking up the pirate hat and says “Hello old friend!”

@kingwesinald and I put together a little Twine game! We have plans to expand it but for now this is v1.0

@neauoire I really like the point about how they are giving you the platform not the other way around.

That said, the board of the foundation has worked super hard to keep RMS on board, despite numerous documented instances where he has been creepy, misogynistic, and just willfully ignorant of power dynamics. This means that like RMS, the FSF is heavily focused on the GPL, and the philosophy of free software, but they also refuse to expand their perspective to help anyone. They just want to increase the GPL, and they are opposed to any projects aimed at helping people if the project doesn’t line up exactly to their ideals.

If the exposure would help YOU I think it might be worthwhile, but I don’t see the FSF actually taking meaningful steps towards fighting injustice in the world.

Obvs my perspective is all about justice and building a better world, which I think open source and free software is really important for, but I know it’s not as important for everyone.

Which ancient Greek playwright makes the best breads? 

@cadadr this reminded me of a joke one of my Latin profs shared:

A man in walks into a tailor shop in NYC with a torn pair of pants. The tailor looks at him and his pants and says,
“Euripides?”
The man relies, “Eumenides?”

Fscking around with my site during some downtime today! I'm really happy with the changes, and it was nice that my skills are at a point where I could make these small tweaks relatively easily and get the rewards quickly ha.

Musings on emoji & screen readers 

@cadadr oh I hadn’t thought of that! That’s a great perspective.

Musings on emoji & screen readers 

Something that I find really fascinating about the culture of various groups is how they use emoji vs the textual meaning assigned to the emoji.

With regularity I see the 😂 emoji being used as a way to react to something with laughter. That’s the :joy: emoji. Which I get, the common representation of it is a face with mouth open in a wide grin, and tears coming from the eyes. But the sentiment I see being expressed with its use to me almost always seems more aligned with the 🤣 emoji, the :rolling_on_the_floor_laughing: emoji.

From the textual designation of these emoji it would seem to me that they convey significantly different meanings, but common use among sighted folks conflates them heavily. I don’t know if this is a problem per se (I don’t think it is), but as I am sighted myself I’m not entirely sure.

How hard is it to set up Icecast on a yunohost server? It’s not one of the officially maintained services but it can’t be hard right?
