Word of The Day
It's about using words, of course, but, while an occasional favorite or boost happens, there's little engagement.
A two-part Challenge Proposal:
A) Post a toot using the word in any way, sentence, story, analysis, rhyme...
B) Doodlers and Artists, use the word as the subject of a #SketchChallenge
Get in on the fun of words and visual imagination.
Remember to use the #WordOfTheDay hashtag, of course.
Thanks to anyone who decides to follow this account.
I have a habit of responding to all who do so, but this is a second account, and I may mess up when trying to determine who is a new follower and who is "also" following after connecting by way of my mastodon.cloud account.
It is not my intent to litter myself all over the fediverse. I will see how things go. I've made connections with several others on mastodon.art and think I'll feel at home here while NOT restricting my toots to artistic attempts. It looks like the instance won't generally mind.
Words have art in them, too.
Good luck to all of us.
Strength to the fediverse through the efforts of individuals.
Hey, he did hang around to favorite it!
(of a person or wrongful act, especially a crime) utterly odious or wicked.
Late Middle English from Old French haineus, from hair ‘to hate’, of Germanic origin.
Snidely Whiplash is famous in the cartoon world for the heinous crime of tying Nell Fenwick to the train tracks. He might have been seen as even nastier if he'd used chain!
I was recently reading a science fiction story about a scientist visiting with different cultures...

About your next rant.
Will it be relevant?
Consider forgoing it
If the evidence is scant.

It is difficult to specify the exact degree to which the temperature will rise during the day.
Forecasters here typically say something like "It will be in the upper 40s." Of course in countries using metric temperatures, that is far from good news. #WordOfTheDay
I'm looking for a free German dictionary to use for a dict server on a Debian system and can't find it. What I want is something like the dict-gcide package.
｢… definitions from WordNet, the Century Dictionary, 1906, and many additional definitions contributed by volunteers.｣
But in German? Some Wörterbuch, an old Duden edition, something Goethe and Schiller might have used? 😃
I mean, there are many translation dictionaries available. But what do poets use? 🙄
Not long tomes
Shared rhymes by the ounce
Find here their homes.
Nextcloud asking for help
So I have a Nextcloud docker image set up on my home server, and I'm trying to run a query to see if the brute force security extension is working as intended (got 100+ login attempts from an Estonian IP address last week).
But I can't for the life of me figure out how to do this since Nextcloud is pretty vague about it's command line. Documentation was no help.
The table in question is oc_bruteforce_attempts. How do I check it?
Give others a shout
Sharing is caring
Don't be a lout.

Got that shut-in feeling
This is how I'm dealing.
A bag of chips later
Not feeling any greater.
To deal with that strange itchin'
Walking to the kitchen
To get more munchy stuff.
Is not exercise enough
I need to climb some stairs
Or vacuum those stray hairs
Move the muscle masses
Till the food urge passes!
In these current times of strife
Schools are closed, you see.
Students' minds, though, need not be.
Learning is full-time, for your life.
