@ojahnn On birdworld, an account I follow did a boost on a post and I thought “oh, this folk sounds smart and worth a scan” and as I scan that account and bio I saw that account was yours and I thought “oh, right, no shock.”

All in this family still sans-virus, 3 scary contacts and 4 swabs down, so I know I’m lucky and don’t want to complain. But I do miss having a shot to work on my own stuff.

Which, again, is... similar for millions of folks. Still.

Octavia Luciana is back out of group daysitting, as covid is rising again, so I’m mostly watching that kid (and not working much), and talking most of all days. Which is causing a scratchy throat, which can also hint at a that junk which kicks all this off... 🙄

Ongoing stability (roughly) of our world and a turn away from fascism is worth an surplus glyph.

*Only* thing bad about how our voting is going: our top guy will not comply with oulipian standards in two months.

I’m good trading that in.

Octavia Luciana had a COVID swab. Got only good things back, but lord I’d not had that sort of anxious stomach pit for a doctor’s lab prior to that.

Would oulipian CompSci just avoid 0x-ish digits? Octal only? Or is this our justification for radix 12?

Octavia Luciana’s ruling: Cholula > Sriracha > Tabasco.

Octavia will now show disapproval for 🍳 from mom’s dish but strong approval from my own.

Octavia’s mom omits Cholula. 🌶😍

My kid, Octavia Luciana, has an orbit as of today! What a wild trip, in so many ways. This kid is 💯.

Today’s mandatory activity is anti-oulipoian. Should incur a discount.

I just found an additional win for that ‘using a non-racist branch ID in git‘ discussion: my main branch is now oulipo compliant!

Octavia just got a tooth! A first!

So now Octavia + I, in sum, contain a platonic count of tooths for a human.

I was ~two months past up for a haircut at lockdown’s start.

I am again thinking about an installation allowing only pictographs, similar to that old bit from Tom Scott and Matt Gray.

Can anybody point to this installation’s program modifications?

Mastodon is a "FOSS" social sharing hub. A multi-host substitution for capitalistic platforms, it avoids risking a particular company monopolizing your communication. Pick a host that you trust — you can still talk with all hosts running Mastadon. Any individual can run a Mastodon instantiation and join in this social hub in a jiffy.
