Pinned toot

Hey friendos! Ottawa Processing Day 2019 is over, which means my talk is done, which means I can experience joy again instead of just anxiety about giving my talk.

@tildetown got called out heavily, and especially @curio (for botany).

Please find attached this image of the Tilde Town Time Service that ran back in November 2017.

It's really more of an artists rendition - as it was created post-facto - but I actually built a working speaker amplifier on breadboard for authenticity reasons.

Urgent security update incoming, so TTW is going down. Also my Internet is down because of a snow storm so I'm doing this over tethered mobile. What excellent timing!

my kindness is actually a selfish ploy for admiration and karma

I've just started playing Disco Elysium and gained the thought "Inexplicable Feminist Agenda".

A few lines of dialog later my conceptualization said "Isn't it evil? The order of magnitude between what is asked of a person -- and what they have?"

I can tell that we are going to be friends.

@m455b It all flooded in after I followed a few more pubs. Maybe that helped or at maybe I just needed patience

@m455b mate I'm ready to go back on my Scuttlebutt bullshit -- what pub are you on? Nothing I am following seems to be within two hops of you -- it's ~lonely~ out here

Heading to Mont Tremblant (Quebec) and later this week, New York.

I wish I enjoyed travel more because I have an objectively privileged life in this regard but I really don't enjoy it. (Even worse: NY is by plane, so heavy carbon footprint and I'll spend the trip in mortal terror).

So we have a better search now. It says the import finished. I am suspicious because it doesn't include @selfsame's latest toot using the phrase "what if" ...

Third day of indexing, there is no Dana, there is only swapping the JVM and `bundle exec` in and out of RAM -- for eternity

Show thread

It failed with an out-of-memory error. I'm going to add some swap because I don't think I can change the instance type of the VM without recreating the whole thing. 🔦

"Ribbon cable poking out the side ofa case" is such an 80's computer aesthetic thing. I think that 50% of my interest in modular synths is music making and the other 50% is the pure joy of wires and flashing lights. I'm not even joking.

Cheering for the 4CPU VM that ttw runs on. You can do it, little fella!

About to restart ttw with Elasticsearch enabled so grab something

`sudo apt install maven` wow today just got significantly worse
