@GeoffWozniak Absurdle is a fun and possibly more appealing take: it changes its answer based on your guesses to keep you as far away from solving it as possible.

@GeoffWozniak Still smaller than mine! It's an antique bankers desk, with a heavy inlay top; before I ever used it I had to cut the base in half to get it through the door of a basement apartment, but after that it's survived several moves without incident.

@GeoffWozniak I finally finished my collection a few months ago... and have hardly listened to any of it, for lack of a good Android/Linux syncing+converting+playing solution (everything is in FLAC and I want the phone to have mp3/ogg with metadata and useful playback options) and a glut of podcast episodes that I no longer have a commute to take care of. (I don't think it's possible to have a first-worldier complaint!)

@GeoffWozniak I still have redirects in place from my MovableType URLs. 🤓

@GeoffWozniak I'm finding Eleventy is a nice middle ground between "from scratch" and "WordPress", for what it's worth.


It perpetuates a negative stereotype (two of my favourite people perform as sweet red-nose "Pochinko" clowns) but in this case I'll allow it.

Pro tip for Android users: install the "Shortcut Maker" app and you can create a quick link to your vaccination record. (I copied the QR code out of the vaccination record to make it even easier; the icon opens it immediately in Photos.) play.google.com/store/apps/det

I believe iPhone users can do the same by creating a shortcut and adding it to the home screen. support.apple.com/en-ca/guide/ support.apple.com/en-ca/guide/

@GeoffWozniak I like it more when they don't have roles that share names with actual people. Seems disrespectful; wonder if they had to get signoff from them/their estates to use their likenesses?

@GeoffWozniak One of the best Star Trek movies, right after The Wrath of Khan (and maybe The Search for Spock and The Voyage Home, depending on the day). The documentary that came out a couple of years ago is worth watching, but has (mostly technical) issues.

@GeoffWozniak pipewire is the new hotness, in Fedora at least. No idea if it's better or worse to set up; it mostly works on my machines, except occasionally Teams goes silent on my laptop (which could certainly be Teams' fault) so I kill it and it works again.

Joke's on the "Join the Illuminati" spammers: I'm already in. 👁

@GeoffWozniak (But also the person who created the bug report....)

@GeoffWozniak I used Dvorak on my home machine for a while but not on the TVWorks machine. Had pretty good speed but not appreciably different so I eventually reverted to QWERTY.

@GeoffWozniak Very confused by that alpha layout. Something to do with the "layers" you've mentioned?

@GeoffWozniak (which features his half-sister Lisa singing backup, as she's done for many of Al's songs)

@GeoffWozniak After "And who can forget" I was sure you were headed here. Because who can forget... youtu.be/HFHqTzeIuKE
