That last code change actually fixed things and I'm happy.

Also it's Saturday so I'm trying not to do much work, so I opened my 3DS and played some of the old Animal Crossing. It's fun.

I was never on twitter, so I don't grok the culture, which seems quite bizarre to me.
"Follow for Follow" is stupid. It is racking up a 'high score' to please capitalist overlords who crave personal data on reds ,so they can control them with ads and information.
Better your should cultivate *real* relationships with your comrades and not accumulate faceless numbers.
Statistics don't lead revolutions. Real people and relationships conquer.

The all too ubiquitous PR stunt. "If you purchase $100 worth of merch, we'll donate %5 of it to help fund research against COVID-19".

I may need another virus. Covid19 may not be enough!

@MutoShack Curiously enough, the the European layout on the number keys is reflected in ASCII, apart from the slash.

Number keys shifted: !"#$%&/()
ASCII 0x20--0x29: !"#$%&'()

Makes it easy for Europeans to remember how to escape () as %28%29 when we have to escape a URL to please some picky URL parser. 😀

those extended file attribute thingies of the Hurd sound rather cool. would be nice not having to think of places to put metadata.

is making a new keyboard, with better switches and programmable keys...
