Baking a rhubarb crisp with oats and cinnamon and brown sugar and such, with rhubarb from our back yard. Looking forward to nomming, but good sniffing is going on now!

Fixing structural cracks in my fancy work chair with plastic zips and two-part joining liquid (it sat all night curing). Works so far! *crossing digits for luck*

Shout out to oulipians @NHS, @guchinowaso, @B2020, and @Lo_LO_ol, not in this spot for too many days so far. Howdy!

Oulipo's starting to cost big cash to run! All of 26¢ in mail hosting this month!

(NB: This is not a call for donations.)

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.

Oulipo.social (Mark II)

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.
