When you breakup with someone you sometimes have this realization that it had been over for a while, and you were just a coward or busy or afraid or whatevs.

I'm doing a lot of experimental writing, and here is a mini-essay-thread, a part one to an ongoing series titled, "Making a website". Um, #makingawebsite, I guess.

Anyhow, here's the thing: talkgroup.xyz/t/making-a-websi

And you know, interact with me, folks. If you are on the forums, ask questions or offer corrections. Same on Mastodon, I will incorporate it all together, because that's my gift to you. ^_^

ESR took a cool counterculture and got his shitty right-wing UNIX ideology all over it—he's not just a bad person, he's a exceptionally bad historian and you shouldn't take his word for anything, the jargon file that he "curates" reflects nothing like an actual 70s/80s programming culture.

here's a pre-ESR jargon file for reference: dourish.com/goodies/jargon.htm

My mate Belinda Robertson and I powered through the day, dealing with a dog crisis and talked about how she should stay away from hebel - a building material. After getting landed with the crisis (nearly melted me. she managed like a total boss) we decided we were having a hebel of a freaking day. Seeing shaz @fino and her socks helped.

What a freaking hebel.

Did that thing where you put the /'s in the wrong place on your rsync command line and blatted a bunch of files/dirs into the wrong place. Max irritts.
