Update on making RSS better for long-form work like webcomics and serial stories! (See this thread for background.)

Based on nice feedback from a WordPress core contributor, I think I understand how to add RFC5005 support as a WordPress plugin.

Does anybody want to build that plugin with me? It should be mostly straightforward but I haven't programmed in PHP for about two decades and I'm intimidated.

Oh my god. Paolo Borelli has finished porting RsvgDrawingCtx to Rust!!!

This is the second of the mega-objects that Paolo ported, the first being RsvgState.

We are now at roughly 10753 lines of C, plus 19686 lines of #rustlang.

There's no such thing as useless knowledge. I keep finding actual practical uses for all kinds of trivia I've picked up over the last twenty years, and while it does surprise me every time, it certainly encourages me to keep accumulating it.

@modernmodron (also hearing "Sorry, I guess they weren't a very good Neighbour. It's okay though. Let's wish them happiness on their path" when a cheater or abusive person gets banned from a server would be pretty great)

@modernmodron There needs to be like a Mr Rodgers style announcer voice pack for games like this tbh and they need to be enforced because imagine what good it would do to the gaming community to just... relax and not take everything so seriously and have to feel spiteful or angry at people? Imagine if they could just connect with other people and realise that you don't have to be mean and shitty to others to blow off steam, even in a violent game?

Probly the best journalism I've seen so far about the #pdx ICE occupation:
theguardian.com/us-news/2018/j

With so much shitty, corporate "news" out there, it means so much to see reporters do real fucking work and get it right.

Soulless faux-neutrality is not journalistic integrity.

Thanks to #TheGuardian's Jason Wilson for this piece

#OccupyICEpdx demands (summary):
* ICE facility removed from Portland
* US must stop detaining asylum seekers
* ICE shall be totally abolished

#OccupyICE everywhere!

"Correlation is not causation!" shouts the Chief of Police.

But that's EXACTLY the argument we'd expect from someone whose organization is found at the scene of every major crime in this city.

Me: that sign says "dumping rubbish prohibited", so I guess dumping anything else is fine

Them: like emotions… or jerks…

#ICE has shut down operations indefinitely due to "security concerns". No agents attempted to enter building today and have also cancelled appointments for tomorrow. The facility is non-operational. Other cities are raising their banners and organizing similar actions.

Trump's executive order is bullshit and any media source claiming otherwise is fucking lying

We're here for abolition

#abolishICE

Even Portland Police wont engage given political pressure
