"Hey, dad, guess what your grand-daughter wants to be when she grows up?"
"I'm guessing Experimental Paradoxist."
"Expe- How did you know?"
"I spent my youth trying to not get killed by her adult self."
"Oh. Well, she gets timetravelling from her mother's side."
"Uh-huh."

As per @selea & @rysiek's suggestion I've started a PeerTube channel for video recordings of interesting FOSDEM 2019 sessions.

You can follow it via @fosdem2019 or peertube.social/video-channels

It's kicking off with the ActivityPub panel hosted by @cwebber & Gualter Barbas Baptista.

peertube.social/videos/watch/c

This extension is my new favourite: addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firef
Other social media sites are on a strict time limit. (Mastodon isn't currently because it's not actively trying to hijack my mind.)

Amazing. RustPython is the top trending project on GitHub. github.com/trending

@h2g2bob Cool, nice to see how much ipv6 just works. Mine is dockerless ansible which took lots of learning too. I'm still really enjoying mastodon, only visiting Twitter because I know more people there.

thanks to whoever defined plethora for me

it means a lot

@cigarBGuitarEfx Interesting to hear how you get on. I've never found dvorak good on a phone. I think an unoptimised layout is better than a layout optimised for a very different device. (Dvorak optimises for alternating hands for example, which makes no sense on a phone.)

@cigarBGuitarEfx I'm primarily a Dvorak user, still use Qwerty on my phone, gaming, and random machines. Really helped with RSI, though that may just be that it forced me to learn to type properly.

We bury the sailors who die in their beds in the graveyard by the sea.
"So they can hear the sea," we tell ourselves.
And every year, in the winter storms, the sea eats more of the land, and claims a few more graves, of long-dead sailors whose calls the sea still hear.

Meta! My drawing book was a very thoughtful gift. (thanks @ruthicus )

Apocalypse World. Dice and clouds. The cloud shows a jungle and cliff path from one of my recent games.

The maiden ride up to the dragon's lair, lance raised. "Come out and fight me," she called.
The dragon looked at the knight. "Your girlfriend is here."
"My ex," the knight said. "Help me put my armour on?"
"Don't fight her, you might get hurt."
"I've got to protect you."

Walking on the beach in the morning is one of the great Christmas pleasures.

First machine I ever programmed on. The beginning of something amazing.

Mastodon

A mastodon instance for anyone who likes green, purple, any colour that can be mixed from green or purple, or any colour that can be used to mix green or purple.

Just a personal instance to experiment with Mastodon.
