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.)

Words with bad glyphs in photo 

So much working-from-sofa support today. So much. Why didn't folks try this prior to its turning mandatory? It wasn't surprising. Bah.

Nix that last! Upgrading occurs! Proclamations: a thing, now! (Fixing that bad glyph post-zzzs, though.)

*sigh* No upgrading of mastodon today, but OS and DB got a good airing-out. I think all should work as it did hours ago, but LMK if not.

Doing a full backup first, which could push upgrading back a ways...

NB: this instantiation might go down for a bit soon. Upgrading things, as soon as I'm ok in my mind about what has to go on.

This guy: individually coil-binding small books at a print&copy shop costs too much! $30 for 10 books? Nuts!

Also this guy: I should totally buy this $300 quasi-industrial coil-binding monstrosity. For 10 books, occasionally.

🤔

Wow, its hard to start tooting on this instantiation

At last, it's that point in our solar orbit for my annual posting of that old (auld?) folks' song, by "batfancy" Tim (who is not Josh Billings), ft. jubilant horn: timeriksen.bandcamp.com/track/

What I bought today: a bigass jug of liquid brown sugar.

Oh! I think I know how to apply that local-only patch to our instantiation. Gonna try it now; sorry about this coming blackout!

Upgrading is through. I want to apply that patch for instantiation-only toots, but I still gotta find out how to do that. For now, just a bump from 2.9.2 to 2.9.3.

Gonna try updating our mastodon instantiation again in a bit, from 2.9.2 to 2.9.3. Also adding a glyph or two to its list of glyphs what is forbid. Forbad. Bad. Bad for us.

Anyway, right. Upgrading. Starting in a bit.

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 !

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.
