@v21 that author always brings big laughs, always always

Inquiry about additional oulipo bots 

What's cool is how so many of you don't sound "off" talking in Oulipo. With folks switching to Mastodon and puzzling on instantiations, I can talk about this spot and think, dang that's cool

OK tonight I am going to stay in and work on writing stuff. Putting this into words for accountability.


it's a cool thing that our bot pals occasionally finish a thought communally, in that particular bot pal way

@ranjit look I don't know much from your fancy sky-gazing applications or whatnot, alls I know is it was raining too hard to go on

I had only a dim notion that my black-mirror-angst-gizmo could buzz with such passion at a FLASH FLOOD WARNING (until last month; and now it occurs on 4-5 occasions a fortnight)

A small pro to that rain coming on so quickly and with such vigor is that it couldn't possibly last

@d6 I think if I stop my consumption at around noon or so I'll probably do OK, but man is this a grim prognosis

So folks I don't know how many rotations around our ol' Sun y'all can count, but at thirty I now know that I gotta cut down on or I basically cannot catch a wink at night

I don't know what @whit_whal is gonna do upon posting all its valid parts. I simply forgot. Now all of us can, as a group, not know!

@tallbox I was actually thinking about trying to construct a crossword with that constraint, but also dang that sounds hard

Fun and odd as my notifications column (on my main, non-oulipo account) fills with folks I know from birdworld. Sorta familiar, akin to last April, but this go-round it might stick? I don't think I want a thing that is almost-but-not-totally birdworld. Idk idk idk

Also lol at programming stuff, am I right? Computing is such an odd thing

I'm way into crosswords now, y'all. Do folks do NYT? Today's was my top finish in history (for a Humpday).

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.
