Pinned toot

Found myself speaking with the parent of a small child I was amusing* at a restaurant:

"Are you an actor?"
"A comedian?"
"Not exactly. Why do you ask?"
"Well, you're very animated..."
"And yet, you didn't ask if I was a cartoon."

*OK, truth be told, we were amusing each other.

Gemini Zine Announcement 

I started a #gemini zine or gemzine. It's called smolZINE. A little thing to curate some neat stuff that's on gemini on a regular basis. If that sounds like something you'd be into check it out.


Tonight the Emperor Norton's Coffee Hour returns to

Recommended by five out of five actual clowns who regularly attend!

The shenanigans kick off at 7pm UTC-5:

heads up if you use twitter at all

in typical jack dorsey fashion, the new tipping feature on twitter, which uses paypal, sends the tip recipient the full name and address of the person sending the tip

if you don't have a business account set up to obscure that info, you could very well dox yourself

Apparently the new audacity owners are adding telemetry to it :/ This is....concerning. Especially because that PR discussion has _zero_ opposition to the feature being added

the world's smallest violin

the world's smallest hurdy-gurdy

If you can read this, you're halfway through the week and only a few hours away from the video chat!

Hang in there, and then come hang out there with us. :)

Starting at 8pm UTC-5:

Anyone have any tips on getting borgbackup's mount (via FUSE) to work on ?

Currently hitting a brick wall, which left the following imprint on my forehead:

> borg mount not available: loading FUSE support failed [ImportError: No module named 'llfuse']

Suggestions appreciated, after I walk away from the "throw computer" place.

Comic about Aesop's thirsty crow on the island of Lemnos, circa 5th or 6th century, with a little help from for the Lekythos reference.

(also, that might not be water in there)

Can anyone recommend a live cd/usb linux distro that supports persistent storage and isn't ubuntu-based?

This is your reminder that #circusInPlace is happening tonight at 8pm UTC -5! I normally post as we open the chat, but due to some technical complications I won't be doing so tonight. The clowns have some rough weather warnings, so we may end up having to step out for a while. But hopefully we'll have a whatever passes for a "normal" night there instead! Looking forward to seeing you all!

Kick off your week with an evening of silliness!

The fun starts at 8pm UTC-5:

I just watched Batman sing Orange Coloured Sky.

Old hollywood palace episode, was absolutely bonkers.
cw: it's from 1966..

Other than one rather terrifying and completely self-inflicted typo in my login.conf, I'm proud to report that the upgrade from 6.8 to 6.9 was entirely uneventful. The automated upgrade is likely 100% bulletproof if you don't happen to have some clown like me tinkering around in /etc with write permissions.


I'm learning Scottish #Gaelic and oinline I use

- #duolingo for learning the #language (in addition to the books I bought)

- #LearnGaelic as dictionary, general reference and sometimes for grammar

- (slightly coughing 😊 ) Google as translation service

Question to all the #gàidhlig learners and speakers: which online resources (dictionaries, courses, translation sites, reference, ... ) do you use or would you recommend?

#boost welcome
