Want to play a fun game? Do a search and replace on a news article about migrants, replacing the word "migrants" with the word "people".

Then re-read it.

Let's play a game, to help some of the newcomers make connections: name subjects and topics that interest you but aren't in your profile, as tags so they are searchable. Then boost this post or repeat its instructions so others know to do the same.

Okay there’s a tool you can use that can help you decode what’s being printed onto your paper and can also help you anonymize your printing. I would highly recommend using and sharing! github.com/dfd-tud/deda

On second thought, I'm deleting that toot and changing our department motto. In retrospect, it was pretty shameful...

I dunno, just fuckin paying people to quit their nonsense jobs for websites or Jamba Juice and instead paying them $30/hr to install solar panels, plant trees, build high speed internet, retrofit buildings and build up public transit would solve a lot of problems I think

Sigh. My sister has gotten me back into Severed Heads. I had "City Slab Horror" on cassette when I was 17.

Family all approve of my marinara sauce. I am never buying store-bought again.

I’ve been noticing the #OurStreets tag in my timeline. In case you want to take a look…

Grocery and household drudgery day here at the IPX house (cluster? Grid?). Apart from the usual tidying up and laundry, I'm going to attempt to make my own marinara sauce from scratch. Wish me luck!

Tapping the "reader mode" icon in firefox while logged into the toot-lab results in an anonymized scribble wall and I think that's beautiful.

I need a browser extension, that would block these:

* I don't EVER want to try your app
* I don't EVER want add your site to my home screen
* I don't EVER want to enable annoyifications.

We didn't feel like cooking or ordering in tonight. We ended up deciding on a store-brand "Indian Party Pack" consisting of veggie samosas, vegetable pakoras, butter chicken bites, and tamarind sauce. It was surprisingly good, if a bit spicier than we're used to.

i seriously don't know how to articulate to people who have never worked in service industry that it's literally a modern day serf class

Looks like the blues are on track to a majority government here in Manitoba. Not the result we wanted, but the one we pretty much expected.

In other unrelated news, my wife has been invited to be a regular panelist on the same TV show she was on earlier this year.

Provincial elections tonight. Mrs. IPX and I are glued to the TV watching the election coverage. She's "orange" while I'm "green", but we're united in our dislike of the "blue".

...dang! It took an hour and a half, but the bloody report writer took the requirements I fed it, and spit out a report that was exactly what I needed.

I'm... impressed!

Generating a report in our system's new report writer. What used to take 10 minutes under our old system now sits at 66% after an hour...
