Every time discussions around changing clocks for come up, an argument is given that it messes up people's sleep. I always marvel at this, my sleep is bad enough year-round that I've never noticed any effect whatsoever from changing clocks.

@matt I made that switch a few years ago, but eventually gave up on it because it broke so much of the web :(

@ethicsperoxide First reaction: "oh I misunderstood, the kiddo is starting a *job* at a daycare". Second reaction: "oh, no... No."

@kline Pretty smart approach! Hope everyone does that

Backing up photos and noticing a strong increase in pictures of our while the girlfriend was abroad. Also many of me making dumb faces. Gotta have some material to send her every day

An hour spent reading wiki pages on and accidents led me to this cool phenomenon I hadn't heard of yet. About 1.7 billion years ago some uranium on earth started a natural fission reaction that lasted for a few hundred thousand years. No worries, they don't think it can happen naturally on earth any more 😜

Feel like I've heard more Dutch on my trip to Slovenia than I usually hear in Brussels. Popular tourist destination it seems!

Incredibly exciting to get official confirmation that Germany's health service (@gematik1@twitter.com) has standardised on Matrix for secure decentralised communications, targeting all 150,000 healthcare organisations in Germany(!!!) 🤯 Read all about it at matrix.org/blog/2021/07/21/ger 💉🇩🇪🚀

@karlos I'm no expert, but do you need doc.rust-lang.org/std/primitiv perhaps? SO is pretty good, there's also a rust forum users.rust-lang.org/

Personally I'd probably go for SO.

Currently working on a free icon pack for Android. Anyone down to help with requests and whatnot for the first version?

Update as she returns: got the queue down to 82 episodes, 68.5 hours.

Was helped along by hurting my ribs in a bike crash. This left me unable to run for a week, making me go for long walks instead. I don't listen to podcasts when running, I did while walking.

andrew lee just seized over 700 channels on freenode because they mentioned libera.chat in their topic.

This includes projects like openbsd, wikimedia, FOSDEM, etc.

archive.is/uHw1g shows 720 channels that match what is being checked.

here's an example log: gist.github.com/pushcx/ab2a1d5

boost this if you care about foss in any way.

@Tak I have used this approach to good effect in the past. Can recommend.

I've gotten lazier the past years though. (Or perhaps less adventurous?)

It is the fun that never eeeends. The IRC drama surrounding freenode continues on and is beginning to look more concrete?

@labellaragassa USA, she figured rather than waiting for one in Belgium, she could get her vaccine there. Also wanted to finally see her family again so is combining those two objectives :P

Home alone as the girlfriend is in her home country for a month. Is this the time I can make a dent in my 162 episode, 117 hour long queue?

Probably not.

Cmd+backspace is delete text to beginning of the line in most places in macos, including when renaming a file in Finder.

HOWEVER, if you're renaming a file via the desktop, then the "Move to bin" action kicks in instead.
