Pinned post

Everyone seems to have pinned toots these days with all sorts of background info. I'm not even sure what I'd put in one. I've never put thought into what to have as a pinned toot.

FOSS, antagonistic phrasing 

github.com/moby/moby/issues/73 original context, which you may notice doesn't say what the payoff actually is. It's implied to be "people will use it", which is tantamount to being "paid in exposure", of course.

FOSS people really think getting big companies to use your code is better than money

I noticed that the toot that I retooted mentioning this isn't showing up for me on my profile page so in case anyone missed it:
tl;dr the gmail thing is likely not an issue for third party clients, only ones that involve accessing data related to a google account through a third party server. Which, most clients do not do or need to do.

What percentage of English words contain the letter "e", anyway

I had a dream last night that I was on QI with @owashii. For some reason I said "Can we please stop talking about grandma soup?" No, that's not a typo.

Did you know that you can prevent most superspreader events by simply not having large indoor gatherings during a pandemic? So easy!

The CO2 levels in *regular meetings* has been shown to reach levels where judgment is impacted if they go on longer than ~1 hour. There is probably *already* research going on into how to solve this.

Also filters to keep out future SARS-CoV-2 strains and the like, of course.

Capitalist dystopia prediction: future office buildings will have "custom" interior air mixtures with decreased CO2, slightly increased oxygen, and, if costs permit, some of the nitrogen replaced with inert gasses like neon, krypton or argon. The end result is that the air is more "energizing" (and healthier too), leading to an subtle positive stimulus associated with being in the office, whereas being outside or at home the stimulus is absent.

I'm always amused when people try to insult me by calling me a commie. Like. You realize the red scare was fearmongering, right? I don't like many of the things the USSR did but I also recognize that they didn't actually reach communism either.

Every asshole who complains about Calarts style just because of the mouth should be forcibly exposed to how every anime characters' mouths don't make any physical sense when they're talking in a side view.

@owashii oh yeah and I was using a spoon to pour the kibble. There was a spout in the handle.

I woke up from a dream that @owashii and another friend from our high school were harmonizing in some mournful song just out of nowhere while I was pouring more kibble for my cat. Also Owa was Strong Bad too. Dreams are weird.

Remember when I used to write software
