...It may take me a while to recover from this. 🤣

my ideal job is to be the guy at the news corporation who makes up stuff like the knockout game and rainbow parties to scare old people



Ok, seriously, Shæ just ran down the hall, turned around, charged @FireflyLeigh, into a jumping hug, which... Man

Having kids is great


Am I the one who reads logs weirdly? Or is it that every log injester I've ever seen is bonkers? I just want to be able to search the text, and then put that text on a time series graph!


This year I realized that @citywaterloo has a novel way of exempting my beighbourhood from leaf collection

Every year we are given a time we can put leaves on the road to be collected, and every year it's after the snow starts in earnest
this was us last year but this year we got lucky! It had snowed and thawed and I went out like a maniac to break up the ice over the street drains so that they could actually sweep the leaves from around the drains. Biggest success of the year!

Of course now it's all full of fresh leaves, but hey.
I just realized tonight (first snowfall) that this has been true in our neighbourhood for the entire time we've lived her (6 years). And I suspect it's systemic


I am fairly certain Loki isn't a real piece of software. Whoever made is has never viewed a log. Right?
Holy fuck?! Loki rejects out of order log events?! What?! DO ERRORS NOT EXIST IN THIS ERROR FINDING TOOL?!


I talk a lot of shit about Javascript, but @LeaftletJS is really nice, and has always been a pleasure to use


Industry/gov : "we want to use machine learning to place people into jobs!"

Me: "Yay, all kinds of bias. This sort of idea is also why I left my last job as soon of the head of data science said they thought it was a good idea I knew it was time to go"


An archivist is reading a history of Indonesia which describes a war against things that don't exist that took place in 8936 BC.


"The level of violence and sexual assault that was reported was shocking,...What the women told the assessors shocked them to their core. This process has forever tarnished the image of the RCMP as a Canadian icon."

If they only knew it’s in ALL services


"defund the police" isn't a slogan, its an extremely straightforward policy demand. this is not a marketing workshop and further input has not been requested



Yet another reason to dismantle the RCMP.

one of the most weird genres of posts in RPG spaces is
"I do not wish to engage with one of the core themes of this game, how can I get around it?" and just, like, other genres are available? If grief is not something you want to deal with, nobody is forcing you to play wraith?


Hey, uh, this is important
Disney is trying to invent new laws for screwing over people
A message from SFWA's president on # Alan Dean Foster his unpaid royalties. #

SFWA: #DisneyMustPay Alan Dean Foster - SFWA



As housing prices were destroyed in 2008, and a new generation wasn't paid enough to afford living space, the rise of third spaces was huge.

And then, suddenly, a pandemic cratered the third spaces, and no one cared. Destroying the things that made post-recession life workable.


I have bootlegs of a TV show I cannot find legal copies for
On one epside the audio is slightly out of sync, but I can't figure out how far

Rather than doing work, I am generating 300 video files with the audio offset by 1 second more than the last


I think the hardest part of my life right now is absolutely bugnuts number of context switches and unrelated tasks, with little difference between things that bring me joy vs things that are necessary to live. And no environment shifts to separate things either.
The pandemic's strain isn't working from home. It's living from home. It's not seeing friends. It's easy for me to be like "I am looking forward to being back in the office", but that's not really true. I am looking forward to being back in a bar with my friends. But it's easy to think the thing I want is my commute or my office.

It's also easy to think that my time is puddling to nothing because of the amount of time I have. But it's really that it's hard to separate events. And what I want. It's also hard because if I cook, that feels the same as if I finish a personal project. Even finishing a TV show or catching up on podcasts feels like I am getting ahead.

Ok - if you're starting a history of Horror video games and it takes you 20 minutes to get to SpaceWar it's probably too in depth


Phpbb
Which app did you start your Social Media life on??

1) Facebook
2) Kik
3) Snapchat
4) Instagram
5) TikTok
7) Twitter
8) MySpace
9) none of the above


Who runs a nodejs server in order to build CSS for their PHP application?!


Fuck - "Debug some apache for a PHP app" which sounded fun has turned into "Debug docker for some nodejs that no one knew about"


So my # group has decided that the Cabs in Duskvol have Taxi medallions. But rather than kept on the carts, they are silvered onto the horns of Cabbie-trained giant goats.

Stealing medallions for the mob has gotten way more exciting.


Holy shit. Everyone tells me to use Lens for Kubernetes. Somehow, a single typo in Kubeconfig leads to mostly-silent failure.


Gah, sorry for my account vomitting twitter things


As COVID red zone slouches toward Waterloo Region to be born, I bid a fond "fuck you" to everyone who thought it was okay to get together w/ crowds of friends and party like there's no pandemic.


Just think how capitalism has figured out how to give us relatively free entertainment piped directly to our homes through alternative revenue streams

But suggest we use collectivist strategies to house and feed people...




Listen: if your kid* is deathly allergic to peanuts, you don't urge them to taste your homemade peanut brittle just so you feel loved.

Don't urge your kid* to come home for the holidays during a pandemic. Find a new way to celebrate.

*parent, sibling, cousin, partner, etc.


It's called 538 because that's the police code for murder

His entire claim to fame is that he was the Republican who was more off than a bunch of pollsters, but *did* say that Obama was gonna win, so liberals like him


I hope RISC becomes the lingua franca for embedded and small systems soon. I keep hearing ideas like running Kubernetes on cameras


Man, it was weird to be in my parent's house and having my parents be like "You city folk don't understand power outages"

When, I've literally lived in that house a large portion of my life than they have.
a cooperative that itself act as a power supplier

That is so cool! Wish we could do this here too.


Where do you live?

Outskirts of Bangkok

Bangkok? Yeah, that's really crazy that photovoltaic isn't the favorite power source there.
Mismanagement/ incompetence at state level, was well as a very powerful natural gas lobby. 90% of electricity generation is conventional thermal, mostly natural gas now. Renewable energy is minimal...

A friend of mine (a German lady) was invited on a local TV show for having a wormbin at home. It was such a thing... in a country where sustainability is an unknown concept.

I miss HTML. I miss a very simple markup language for making very simple pages. I miss the exploration. I miss the fact that people learned to code by trying to make their Neopets homepage cool. I miss this near-coding thing which pushes you to explore.
What's Hugo? Static site generator?

I see lots of themes, but not much tech stack

I do *love* static sites though
yes it is a static site generator using Go templates for very fast websites.. open source too... i installed it on windows laptop then will choose a template and test it ;)


The hardest part of computers is how fucking literal they are about everything

Jacob Ybarra reshared this.



I just looked up the Neocities API. This feels wrong


Turns out that the device on my network called "Switcherooni" wasn't a managed switch.

It was a nintendo switch.

No wonder I couldn't find what it was connected to.


I spoke to @Hypolite Petovan via voice today, and the first thing he said was "Do I hear a server fan in the background?". My brand is very strong
