Yo oulipo, what think you of macrons for long non-consonant sounds to avoid that glyph?
Such as "cōd" for programming input, or "bīk" for 🚲
@nv finally y'all can say whāl out loud
@nv instructions confusing, i bought a fish from a français politician and i'm trying to put it into vim, but it's just stinking up my laptop
Hmmmm. Just looking at it, I would think "bīk"'s pronounciation would turn into /bi:k/, with no diphthong...
@nv That's a smart trick, but my brain won't do its part. I think right away of a fish and that famous brand of ballpoints.
In my unassuming opinion, that would amount to an unfair shortcut, and no fun to boot. Smlr 2 jst wrtng wtht nn-cnsnnts.
@nv i think if you call your programming input "cod" it's fishy and no amount of diacritics will mask that.
@joshly *taking a humongous bong rip* actually all programming is bad
@joshly oof i gotta watch a 100% playthrough of this thing. i got stuck in first 1/3 or so.
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.
