Why do people like zoom video chat so much? I just signed up and it's like the most corporate thing ever.

The missus calls a "string trimmer" a "flymo" and it drives me up the wall which means I am officially the pettiest person ever

A friend of mine from Uni just introduced me to some incredibly good coding music. This album is even free on Bandcamp:

Took mum and the 3 1/3 year old to the zoo and we saw lions & we saw tigers eating & we saw girrafes and Tasmanian devil's eating blood popsicles & fed kangaroos grass & saw an emu & a chimpanzee & merecats & otters & saw kune kune pigs being fed and a rooster and a sun bear

Fucking boomers. Jesus. Arguments about climate change now go like this: "shut up, dickhead, you're wrong. Go read this, and if you're still wrong, then fuck you." skepticalscience.com/argument.

Before I moved off of Gmail, I extracted an archive of all that e-mail and placed it in a Maildir folder and put it on my current IMAP server.

Maybe once or twice a year I'll go through and read some old e-mails .. reading stuff today from 2005. We talked so much differently back then ... we actually wrote out our thoughts in long form.

Over the years there have been fewer and fewer people I've done that with. Today it's probably less than 5, and it might be months between replies.

Alice (12mo), sitting on a particularly resonant part of the wooden kitchen floor, just ripped off with such sonority and magnificence that Bek heard it downstairs through her headset and thought I was moving furniture.

Who of my followers are in a union? Why or why not? I joined the Aotearoa Tech Union, because I want a union to be ready for when I overseas trends in work come here, and because I know that some workers already need the help. Also, one day I might need help.

@art hell yeah!

Kdenlive remains my go-to video editor on Linux. It always makes me happy to see new progress.

Incidentally, isn't it interesting that some of the best libre creativity apps are all KDE/Qt-based? Krita, LMMS, Ardour, and Kdenlive are all excellent.

@sean @art It's because Qt isn't a total bear to work with. Even many proprietary apps (Maya and Mathematica come to mind) base around it heavily

Yes. I unironically think it was a better site than Facebook. Had more and better features than the competition at the time it dropped.
