@tripofmice A picture is worth a thousand words, so for every failed upload, the supplied words are used till they balance the scales.

@pixelpaperyarn You have my sympathy. I had that a few years ago for an “easy” freelance job but luckily did it in the middle of the night and had a full backup of everything that saved me. I don’t remember how I got out alive and never want to go back.

@killian_ahlers Sorry, no. I have a paperback copy that I think I picked up at my local bookstore.

@killian_ahlers Paul Verhaeghe talks about this in his work, e.g., What About Me? The Struggle for Identity in a Market-Based Society. He’s a professor who, based on his clinical practice, believes that it’s the system we live under that’s sick.

Here's the thing about metal 

@pseudoramble Every metalhead I’ve ever known was sweet as pie, extremely polite, and loved kids and animals. I’ve always thought it funny when people say, “that’s so metal!,” to mean something like “badass.”

@m2m There's a video by someone called Mr. Macintosh who runs through the process nicely, and he apparently keeps it up to date. youtube.com/watch?v=go6RTCHv4G

I revived a late 2013 iMac that was collecting dust, and was disappointed to find that Target Display Mode no longer worked. So enter OpenCore Legacy Patcher, and now I'm now running MacOS Monterey with Universal Control and Airplay Receiver. Open source software is pretty great.

Glitch was kind of fun while it lasted. But then again, like most “fun” things, it always seemed way more interested in calling itself a friendly community than being one.

I used to be a Latin teacher and one of my dumb jokes when I was teaching literary devices and the like was, “have you heard the one about the kid who can’t tell metaphors from similes? He never metaphor he didn’t like.”

I just figured out (i.e., read in a book because documentation on the web was failing me) that the h- prefix in hCard in (now h-card in ) stands for HTML — i.e., an HTML analogue to vCards — and things are starting to click.

I just got a shipping notification that my now 7 month old order from the most prolific artist of all time, , is scheduled to arrive on Wednesday. Can’t wait to see what I get. And if you don’t know, he’s the person behind Pavement’s Wowee Zowee cover and so much more. This is a good intro. kickstarter.com/projects/curio

I finally have working on my site, and have added to posts.

DJ: cue Tony! Toni! Toné!, Feels Good.

I wrote up something quick and easy about keeping favicon files tidy in their own folder and passing them through to root with .


* Tag-specific RSS feeds (e.g., tag items with "dev" and set up a feed for dev.to to jumpstart for POSSE cross posts)
* Consuming and doing things with fediverse feeds, e.g., your or posts on your own site

I spent the better part of the day struggling to figure out a mysterious build error only to realize at a moment of distraction about a helper function whose raison d’être ceased to be.

I think I’m going to go live in the wilderness because I’m getting a build error. It’s been fun, everybody!

@chendricks I haven’t read it in literal decades, but 16 year old me thought Understanding Comics by Scott McCloud was terrific and I’ve thought a lot about it over the years.

@chendricks I was just feeling guilty yesterday during a zoom meeting when I kept trying to reach for Lynda Barry’s book.

food semantics question 

@tripofmice We took a family tour of Theo Chocolate here in Seattle and I think I’m remembering now that our guide took a strong position that milk chocolate was candy but dark chocolate was food.
