Here's how I read French: 1) look for the words I know, which is basically fille,garcon,mange,pomme. 2) look for words that look similar to Spanish 3) look for words borrowed by English 4) still don't understand anything

Sometimes I'll do a quick draw when I need a break. This is today's distraction.

"Everything we do to make it harder to create a website or edit a web page, and harder to learn to code by viewing source, promotes that consumerist vision of the web.

Pretending that one needs a team of professionals to put simple articles online will become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Overcomplicating the web means lifting up the ladder that used to make it possible for people to teach themselves and surprise everyone with unexpected new ideas."

Today's tarot draw is Five of Arms from www.neonmoontarot.com
Themes for this card include: Conflict, loss, hostility, defeat.

"You may be thinking of yourself as a victor in a recent conflict, but you have burned bridges or hurt feelings of others along the way. It is important to consider whether or not coming out ahead is worth damaging relationships. Being ambitious is valuable, but considering the cost of victory is more so."

ATTENTION, Public Service Announcement: Do not upgrade your npm. Do not upgrade to 5.7.0, released yesterday.

It changes file permissions of /etc, /boot, /user, … when run with sudo. Avoid, duck, cover, whimper.

@dartigen

in other words, to ensure longevity of a device we need to find a way to:

1. provide appropriate voltage and current

no wonder no one has solved this problem yet

@kiilas Yuuup...until the distributor randomly decides to stop supplying them. Or the model is discontinued. (Or the company goes under, I had that happen once.)

Replaceable batteries would be an equal feature for me if the good ones that last forever weren't so damn expensive. (And if rechargeable replaceables didn't last for like, 2 charge cycles.)

tfw you realise you live in the times where "replacable battery" is listed as a feature and not something you take for granted

"Want to come in," the first dragon said, "and see my hoard of gold?"
"You still sleep on gold?" said the other.
"So what are you on, Bitcoin?"
"Hardly. I hoard pillows."
"Ooh!"

Today, I learned that the language that stood in for "Wakandan" in the Black Panther movie is a real language called Xhosa. The "x" is a click. It happens at the alveolar ridge, which is the part where the roof of your mouth swoops up behind your teeth before it becomes your palette. The following "h" is because it's aspirated. So don't say it like "Kousa" or whatever. Try the click. English speakers make this noise to imitate a clock sometimes, so it's not THAT hard to do. I'm not practiced enough to differentiate in saying or hearing the aspiration, though.

I wrote ~64s of music based on a song I heard in a dream, which I guess means I probably subconsiously ripped it off from somewhere
