I'm super excited (and proud) that I just uploaded a work project (on ) into GitHub as (mostly) Markdown files: github.com/stevenov/textbook-e

If you haven't read any of @steven_ovadia's The Linux Setup interviews, you should. It's an interesting look at how a a variety of people work and live in Linux linuxrig.com/the-linux-setup/

A new edition of my newsletter Weekly Musings goes out tomorrow. If you haven't subscribed, there's still time.

OMG, I just discovered packing cubes. 👀

How did I not know these existed?

I just want to get in the car and drive straight to IKEA and buy them now now now, even though I don't have any trips planned.

Boomers: DONT USE WIKIPEDIA, ANYONE COULD EDIT IT, DONT TALK TO THAT PERSON, THEY MIGHT BE A SERIAL KILLER, THE INTERNET IS A DEVIL'S REALM OF LIES AND TRICKERY, TRUST NOTHING

Also Boomers: this Facebook ad from patriottruthliberty728477892 says that the a-rabs want to make our children homosexual and force everyone to speak immigranteese, sounds right to me

@pertho @sungo

I actually in another thread referred to Oasis as "British Nickleback"

@fosstodon I just got some anti-queer slurs sent to one of my users

Will that account on your instance be suspended?

Just read about BSD user stories by @romanzolotarev at @steven_ovadia. Cool and for sure interesting read for #BSD guys out there

I know the blowing things up without a plan is devastating for the fans, but as someone who listens to sports talk while feeding a very slow eater, it's been a real gift to me.

Five morning rituals to increase productivity:

1) Face North, thrice chant "inbox zero"
2) Face South, thrice chant "bullet journal"
3) Face East, thrice chant "pomodoro"
4) Face West, thrice chant "soylent"
5) Throw your head back to the sky and roar "PRODUCTIVITY"

Hot take: no resident of Queens should ever have to pay for Amazon Prime again.

Hotter take: no one born in Queens should ever have to pay for Amazon Prime again.

Hottest take: I shouldn't have to pay for Amazon Prime.

A mastodon fork where toots could be categorized as "publications", "presentations", "posters", "updates", etc. That would be a #ResearchGate killer

Mastodon: Mastodon is better because instead of algorithmic moderation real humans build and maintain the community with personal, human decision-making and arbitration in disputes

Also Mastodon: This week you’ll be followed by the same 20 people again from a new instance as they again got angry that a human moderator mistakenly made the wrong decision, made the right decision but only after reversing the wrong one, or took too long to make the right decision.

Upon further reflection Mastodon feels a lot like early Tumblr, before ads and spambots and "featured content", except with higher barriers to profile customization and fewer inspirational quotes overlaid on nature backgrounds
