Pinned toot

I generally see my microblog posts to be pretty normal, but my mother asks me about the things I say on here in a very concerned way.
Hi mom. This list is pinned for you to help get rid of some confusion

* GNU is not a drug

* I cannot download drugs

* I am not suicidal, it is just part of the joke.

* I am grammatically incorrect, not mentally ill.

* I am not part of a gang.

* The flashing button that says "Fix my computer" is NOT to be pressed.

* I may not always show it, but I love you.

Since I've been struggling to understand them for quite some time now, I've written an article about Guile-OpenGL. The bindings aren't particularly challenging to figure out, but there are so few articles about them and I haven't uploaded in ages.

This is my first status update on Functional.cafe šŸ˜ƒ I'll be geeking out about Lisp related rubbish & some IRL nonsense, so don't mind me, thank you.šŸ˜•

Also, and I usually don't say things like this, so it's a bit out of character, but does the sky in this shot say " "?

I'm unfamiliar with the flag pattern.

Watching "It's the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown!"

You know, as a kid I used to think Peppermint Patty was gay.

Turns out she's a girl!

So I can open from a keybinding on my window manager because of 'emacs --funcall rmail'.

emacsclient, however, does not have a --funcall argument.
is there still a way to do this?

I still don't know why has to be a "compiler collection" and not just a C compiler.

I don't write in Fortran or Ada or Go, and if I did, I'd probably just install a compiler for them separately.

If there's one thing that's underappreciated, it's tiled background images.

One time I came across a site with a tiled background, so I hit "See background image" and it turned out to just be a really big PNG that /looked/ tiled!

Yet another lunch interview, and another resume sent out.

I'd say I'm getting tired of these but free lunch is always nice.

Vote day today.

Jeez I still gotta see what parties are out there.

I don't know anything about black holes, but I've heard this one a few times:

"You can't really see a black hole"

Hey, news article writers, you can't really "see" *any* hole! It's not that spooky.

I like 480p and believe it's the "hot spot" resolution for the modern Web.

But hey, let's all just upload:
"Trees Waving in the Wind - 8K 120FPS 10-Hour Loop!"

Porn is dumb.
My thinking is that if you are with someone, looking at images of another is disrespectful and insulting.
If you aren't with someone, why would you want to wind yourself up?
It's stupid.

I think conventional forum sites hold a much higher level of user experience & integrity than unified forums (like Reddit) or social media (Fediverse).

Maybe not "higher" but "different".

Having to access the domain, create a unique account, and fill out a "Captcha" box is something very few spammers/trolls would care about doing, whereas on Reddit you already have access to every other sub around.

I kind of miss the old forums I used to be active in (even though I was usually "the idiot" šŸ˜…).

I know it's a bit early, but the Halloween theme for my website is coming along well. It'll be perfect by the time October rolls around!

Slowly making progress...

Now when there's a self-proclaimed genius on the Internet who's obviously factually incorrect (and with way too many upvotes), I no longer feel the need to reply (and when I do, it's with a softer tone, at least)!

I watched the first starwars... I liked it. Skipped the others. I disdained that it really hadn't been thought through very well when DV turned out to be a white guy and the dad of the kid. Not Jones.

You know what is really fun to watch? The japanese movie that Lucas copied - right down to the 'sword play'.

You probably know this already as Kurosawa is so famous, but I had no idea until a bit over ten years ago.

It opens with two idiots squabbling in the desert...
