I no longer have covid, but I am still much more frequently confused than normal.

I feel less intelligent every day that i have covid.

A really great project focuses on intersectional feminist approaches to coding (w/ 24 recipes) edited by Xin Xin+Katherine Moriwaki. This reminds a poetry line: "When we hear “the singularity is near”, let us remember: the plurality is here." from Audrey Tang #codingotherwise

Ok, I think it's time to redirect everyone from my temporary alt to here

This is a nice server and everyone is very nice. This account has been a temporary location while my home server sorted out it's technical issues. is back, so I'll shortly redirect all of you there.

I just wanted to try out a couple of oddballs I've been curious about, but maybe it would be nice to try blowing something so gigantically huge also.

What instance has open sign ups and isn't specifically queer that I can point him at?

@natecull This has sent me down a rabbit hole: how did the notes get the names they have? And it seems to originate from a 6th-Century philosopher called Boethius. He assigned two octaves letters from A to O, inspired by some shit that Ptolemy invented about two octaves being “perfect”. Back then the major scale had no special place, any seven notes make a scale (cf. medieval “modes”), so C has only been the “first” note of a scale since the rise of Western music. It’s just accident after accident of arbitrary naming that everyone was too chicken to fix until the do-re-mi system came along 400 years ago.

It would be a terrible shame if people across London let the air out of every single SUV in the city on the hottest-ever day, given the enormous amount of carbon produced by those vehicles. A shame because the owners might want to go and run over some pedestrians or something. I don't know what anyone does with such an enormous vehicle in a city aside from menace others.

Anyway, it's probably illegal, so don't do it.

Between the heat, the Wagner and people screaming outside and the fucking mouse darting around my feet.

I wish I was camping. In Denmark.

My neighbour is listening to the ring cycle and its a lot of Gotterdammerung through the floor.

except for the part about the dog cop murdering and eating the sausage and then lying about it having a forged ID or whatever. That one still rings true to this day

Look, I'm sorry, but I *only* repair swords. I make this very clear in my listing. If you need work on anything other than a sword go to a different smith. Don't leave me a bad yelp review just because you've got an axe to grind

What's this about getting to 43 degrees in London? I can't even get my shower to get that hot. This seems improbable.
