Arch has its problems but at least it has a consistent and sensible package system.

After spending the last six hours battling with Fedora's nonsensical package management system, I concluded that it's a rare example of DWIDM (Do What I Don't Mean). It goes out of its way to do the opposite of what I want it to do and I need to recite arcane incantations to beng yum/dnf to my will.

xteddy(1) is an excellent rubber duck. Just saying.

@scheme Happy 20th birthday, #CHICKEN Scheme! You've been a very nice language, and managed to remain under development for so long, despite your relatively small (but nice) community. I started using you like, a month or two ago, but since then, I fell in love with your simplicity and little but powerful ecosystem. You really changed my mind, my perception on programming languages. You redefined me.

This idea revealed itself to me in a dream: Uppercase whitespace.

Everyone is asking me to give back and now is the time.

I am doubling all :cate: sent to this post for the next 30 minutes. You send :cate:, I send you back :cate: :cate:.

Only going on for 30 minutes. Enjoy!

homebrewing: mead edition 

Cinnamon infused mead is ready after seven months. Not as dry as I'd like but it had stopped fermenting a while ago. Maybe the champagne yeast starter wasn't healthy enough for alcohol tolerance. I guess I'll use it in cocktails since it's still too sweet for me.

Brew day! Making a Hefeweizen today. I decided to use locally sourced barley malt extract for this one. (Wheat malt extract is unfortunately still imported.)

I'm tired of all this divination with tarot decks and astrology. I see my future by clicking "random" on the Garfield website and metaphysically interpreting the comic strip. Eris guides me to the truth... I hope.
