I think its:

(Unless I'm having a day of: "When I nod my head you hit it" - Laurel & Hardy)

@claudiom @archer72 Ah, mis-identification of "that". 🤣
I believe @archer72 is setting up something for his i3 desktop, but don't know the details.

@claudiom @archer72 I've been using wttr.in for a while. I think I heard of it on a podcast as a "pick of the week" or something. The author is @igor_chubin

@ken_fallon @kevie @dick_turpin @tpheine
Sure thing. That's some very sad and surprising news. He was at most of the OGGcamps I've attended.

@clacke I'm tempted to revisit/visit these versions. I need to research the stuff you've pointed me to. 😀

My ancient vinyl has not survived as far as I know - plus I gave my record deck to my son anyway!

@clacke Ah, cool. A lot I didn't know! I was a great fan of Viv Stanshall and his surreal funny stuff.

@clacke Ah right. Apologies for my ignorance. I'd obviously stopped paying attention when Tubular Bells II arrived.

@clacke I hadn't realised that there were a number of people who have had that role over the years. I bought the (vinyl) album in the 1970's and it was Viv Stanshall of the Bonzo Dog Doodah band on that one. Sadly he died in 1995 aged only 51.

MEMO to all developers

Locking format customization to locales was a BAD mistake, has existed for years in many applications and OS's, and needs to be fixed.

The idea assumes that no person from the US uses metric. That NL wants to be tied to "DD/MM/YYYY', and to using a comma for decimal separator, that everyone in Sweden can speak Swedish.

Formats must be customizable.

Please boost.

We still have one more slot available. Has anyone got a show that they can post ?

@perloid @ken_fallon

Show thread

We have two slots available early next week. If you have not submitted a show (for a while) to #HPR then now is your time.

If you haven't done so already then send in a #introduction recording.

You can always ask @perloid or @ken_fallon for ideas.


A boost would be appreciated.

A reminder that Mastodon and the Fediverse do NOT use cryptocurrency, blockchains, NFTs, tokens, coins, mining, web3 or anything like that.

Masto and the Fedi run on traditional servers and use a sustainable network federation model somewhat similar to e-mail (that's why Fediverse addresses look similar to e-mail addresses).

Also a reminder there are no venture capital firms or other investors either. No one owns the network, each server is independent. Masto and Fedi server running costs are paid by their owners, sometimes with donations from users.

No one is getting rich from the Fediverse, it is all volunteers with some getting donations and a few getting modest grants from foundations. Please remember this when you interact with admins or developers.

(There might be some individual users who post about cryptocurrency/blockchain, but the infrastructure this place runs on doesn't use it at all.)

Tl:dr - Decentralisation does NOT mean cryptocurrency/blockchain

@Ahuka @ken_fallon There's a field 'Justification' displayed when the show is old or before the current date. You need to complete that with 20 (?) characters or more.

@Ahuka @ken_fallon Thanks. I have processed the notes and they are awaiting Ken's ministrations. I'm just about to create the 'Travel' series.

@ken_fallon I mentioned 'cat -A' in the context of interpreting what 'IFS' contains in show 2045, but it'd be cool to have a show dedicated to this command and its options.

@ken_fallon @hpr Really it's a never ending task, since five new episodes appear every week! Uploading all the older shows was a tough process though, and I'm glad that part is done. My records show I started this in 2014, a long time ago!

@hpr@botsin.space Space. The final frontier. These are the voyages of the Starship .... James Webb Space Telescope.

OK better listen to @perloid and @mcnalu as they know what they're talking about.
