#Nightingale is a game that's meant to be played, not AFK'ed. And even if you are playing actively, if you're the kind of person who forgets to eat it will punish you harshly.

Before the invention of electric amplification, the loudest play ever performed was Tinnitus Andronicus.

I met a traveller from Disneyland
Who said "Two vast and trunkless webbed feet of gold
Stand in the desert...
And on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Scrooge McDuck, tycoon of tycoons."

@BlackAzizAnansi Before covid I might have been inclined to say yes.

Citing reasons why the person they just broke up with didn't deserve them. Too soon.

Who the fsck is David McBrayer? While looking for a second source to back up a story about Jay-Z pushing school vouchers with right-wing billionaire Jeffrey Yass, I found the original story, posted Friday by Jessica Corbett at CommonDreams.org, was reposted verbatim today at @RawStory by this McBrayer guy.

Corbett posted her story under a #CreativeCommons license, but it was CC-BY-SA, meaning her credit should not have been stripped.

Installed 12.04 on this ThinkPad a while back, then upgraded it to 14.04. I wonder if it can go all the way through 16.04, 18.04, 20.04, 22.04 and successfully end up on 24.04...

A screenshot of Ubuntu 14.04 desktop with a terminal running neofetch, a telegram window with the Linux Matters channel showing, and an update manager dialog telling me I should upgrade..

@popey I've been updating with the same home directory since 14.04, but Nautilus has gotten really slow since 23.10, so I will probably have to reorganize. Still planning to do 24.04 next weekend, and see if performance changes.

I was today years old when I learned

chown rachel: foo

was equivalent to

chown rachel:rachel foo

All those years of keystrokes wasted!


(Thanks to Wyatt for noting that period can be dangerous. Stick to the empty colon.)

Went into a #Target to see what #Pride merch they were offering. I didn't see the display right in the front of the store, so I was concerned, but the good news is was it was in the very center of the store right next to all the #Phillies gear.

I'm not feeling incharitable, so I will charitably describe the collection as paltry and disappointing. Less than 20% of what they put on their website is there, and it was mostly shirts with faded rainbows.

#Kohls did a much better job.

Unprompted, my wife asked if I wanted to go to a bar to watch the #WNBA on Sunday. Reader, I said yes!

(And we can go after the #Phillies beat the Mets in London.)

A Republican state lawmaker said Tuesday she opposed a bill that would make pads and tampons free for public school students because it could lead to communism. @MrScarce
