mastodon.cloud, my main hangout, is down (for days now!) Looks as though I gotta brush up on my oulipo skills!

And mama always did say, stay mindful whom you court,
And stay mindful of what you do, for calumny turns into truth

Billy Djinn is not my darling
But just a girl who claims that I hit and run.
No, that kid is not my son!

No stylish matrimony:
I can't afford a pony.
But you'll look good
Abaft our hood
In a SmartCar™ built for two.

@BlackSkyX: Standing down today on account of a difficulty tracking what's going on with our ship; backup launch opportunity tomorrow morning.

All, how about hashtag for transcribing a noncompliant Bird Post into an ouliponic Toot? What do you think of using for this?

I found a kids' book at our library: "This Is Not A Book". My 2yo is totally into it. (And no, it isn't by Raymond Smullyan.)

@mbrubck I think you ought to try not going fully through it! Just stop putting a sock on as soon as it starts to fit your foot snugly.

I'm staying up way too far into nights playing shiny Factorio 0.15 now.

@mbrubck @maxhallinan You know what, though? Training up a ML program for automatically translating twixt normal talk and "Anglican" sounds fun.

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.
