@GenTollis Text: plain, HTML or markdown. I don't read or edit "doc" files, open or otherwise.

I am not *against* them, but personally it doesn't come up. But I also don't open attachments sent to me unless I requested them.

If folks are, um, enthusiastic in sharing weird files, I just let them know I can't open them, and to send text or equivalent. I just omit the fact I can't open them is on principle. ^_^

@maiki what format(s) do you use now? And how do you edit/read it? Command line?

@cwebber What's wrong with being high and seeing fractals?! =P

@cwebber There are lots of multicolored water spots around SF. Which part of the estuary/ocean are you referring?

@cwebber I like to think there is a timeline where you've created mind drones, but can't be bothered to create a staging site! ^_^

@maiki There's also OpenAddresses.io ( openaddresses.io/ ), but that's not really FLOSS, since they play fast and loose with copyright

I adore , and is my recommendation to everyone. I've installed it thousands of times (intranet packaging), and run workshops on it.

But I am not sure I need it installed. I never use it, and that is for a really great reason: LibreOffice held my hand while I developed as a person, grew confident in my skills, and am now able to ask folks to resend me data in an appropriate format.

So long LibreOffice, and thanks for all the fish!

@tomasino Yeah, that's the one! Where do you keep it? It seems like it takes up the same space as a decent sized gourd, and I just don't have gourd-space. ^_^

There is this head scalp massager that looks like a torture device, but actually feels really great!

I don't think I would buy one, but I sure would like to use one at this moment...

@xmanmonk Sorry to hear that! Ya know, finding remote work was a lifesaver for me, and there are a lot of remote support jobs! ^_^

My favorite word Clover has been using lately: oftly.

I believe it is a shortened form of "oftenly". ^_^

I am answering questions for a support role (job). They are example questions one would get, and answering them puts me in this mood, and I realized something really great!

Providing support makes me more compassionate. It allows me to actively, habitually practice empathy, within the framework of solving problems (gamification!)! ^_^

@maiki You can tell when you're not in a because most of the bugs you observe cannot be caused by carelessness with pointers, bad assumptions about integer widths, or use of nonportable curses features.

@satchmoz I wanna to stop thinking about the underlying nature of reality every time I think about magic. Also, I'd like to design my own tombstone. ^_^

TFW you consider inhabitants of roguelikes couldn't determine they were in a ... how were your starting conditions? You hit that career goal yet? Found any random tombstones with your initials?
