"whatcha doin this morning?"
"not much, just studying mastodon's DB layout so I can possibly try coding a word-counting script for @rjl20 to run on all of oulipo-town's posts"
actually @rjl20 is probably a coding-knowing folk whom I can possibly talk into writing such a script (or possibly bribing - what kind of suds do you drink? :))
@ranjit I could probably do such a thing. What kind of word-counting is it you want?
@rjl20 thank you!
I'm thinking a how-much-a-word-occurs chart: oulipians said "snail" or "Snail" or "SNAIL"... on 878 occasions, "flag" on 7557 occasions, and so forth
@ranjit Hmm, I'll look into it.
@ranjit Splitting local toots from far-away toots looks a bit tricky, but I think I can do this post-lunch.
@rjl20 this is so good, thanks!
@ranjit Happy to assist!
@ranjit Also happy to find this:
@rjl20 snail is in top 100
linguistics is in top 1000
@ranjit A good match with what I was anticipating!
