Toot with a pin

Want to assist with oulipo translation? You can kibitz on non-compliant strings at oulipo.link/5AGDIR

Right-click on a string and add your oulipo-compliant translation in a pop-up kibitzing form.

Thanks!

(Only low-hanging fruit shows up in this tool; difficult-to-track-down strings don't.)

Arguing about copyright with far-away folks I don’t know again. What is my malfunction; why do I always do this?

I am also a wizzard, fwiw.

"It _says_ it's utf-8; why is it acting as though it's iso-8859-1? Why so much ÂÂÂ all around, stinking up this joint?"

*think*

*light bulb*

(httpd misconfiguration in a spot I didn't think of at first.)

@sculpin is a wizzard.

I was working on a javascript bug for work for almost four hours. Told @sculpin about it. "Is it a DTD thing?"

Folks, it was a DTD thing. I didn't know that was a thing that could fuck up how javascript works, but obviously it is.

It took only a short bit to fix with that hint. Many thanks, @sculpin !

Got a not-as-old talk/sms/pokymon-go-playing box, and gotta switch all my two factor auth digits now. *sigh*

Writing: good, fun. Hiding actual ID: not a strong suit.

Figuring out who owns a 'nym with a good book just out and dropping him a DM to say I dug it: uncouth? Mayhap, but I'm doing it anyway.

NB: Oulipo.social may go away for a bit soon, thanks to upgrading.

Sorry about all that instantiation bouncing tonight, folks. Polls put a ... kind of hand tool ... in ... a thing that wants no hand tools in it. Whilst I was fixing that, I did a thing or two past my original plan. That's why all that up and down. Again, sorry!

You can assist this bot in its mission to oust all bad glyphs from oulipo.social!

It posts a daily localization string with invalid glyphs. Just post back your proposal for transforming its invalid string into a valid string.

All posts will not list publicly, so you must follow this bot to join in.

I'm hoping that this sign will cut down on how many days a month our human lift isn't working. I'm not a fan of all our stairs, and wish I could go up and down in our lift.

A graphic I saw a call for at work today. "No big and awkward loads in our human-lifting lift, thanks. That's what our mondo-duty lift is for."

Looks as though upgrading is through, and all is ok. Many translations missing, as usual. You can submit translations at oulipo.link/qiqjBZ

Gonna try updating our mastodon instantiation again in a bit, from 2.7.4 to 2.8.4. Yay?

Work today:

A: Work is starting on our intran--

B: Don't call it that! That word is boring. You can call it a portal, if you want. That's not a moribund association, which ... that first thing ... has.

A: A portal to what? To information? *thinks* How about I call it an intranot?

I just bought a Spotify account for work. I don't know what to think about that.

Happy birthday, Oulipo! And in two days, happy two annum mark for our most old toot (first two days of history got lost in a db crash, I think): oulipo.social/@mus/1

Non-compliant words in graphic 

Modulo a bad glyph or two which snuck in to our UI again, as with most updatings.

Things that did go wrong:

1. ... nothing? That I know of?

Huh.
