@jamey From past experience, I also fear you're going to finally get that image to open and find that any graph with a million connections is utterly unintelligible. πŸ˜–

Good luck! 🀞

@jamey I'm surprised that those crash at "only" 32k pixels wide!

Well ... okay. 900 megapixels when the renderer is probably using *at least* 32 bpp is a fair bit of work if not written with that use case in mind.

Recruiters all want to talk on the phone. I expect to get the alert from the phone company any time now.

[looking at job postings]

Well, my last two employers were VIA and Veelo, so I should find a role with this music video platform so my resume can read

VIA, Veelo, Vevo

@aparrish Are you looking for reasons to have States named after you? Parishonde. Parrison.

@jamey What does the URL-to-JSON provide beyond, uh, another URL?

I guess a file that has multiple banner sizes in it gives you more options for responsive design?

@jamey A tangent, but: So much LinkExchange history there I didn't know! They received $3 M (in 1997 dollars!) and acquired a shopping cart and sold to Microsoft 18 months later?


I finally put a new post on the old blog!


A brain dump of bullet points of things that might have been interesting enough to tech-blog about during the last five years.

Partly to remind myself what I have been doing, and in case any of them want to grow up to be a real presentation.

@polymerwitch Oh! That's "yell."

Unfamiliar with that emote, I was reading it as "What if we all *bathtub* at once? If we all just stop to relax and have a nice soak in a claw-foot tub? Okay yeah I guess that could be good."

I just accidentally discovered that C-S-u opens a Unicode character selector in kitty. It has good search and what seems to be an up-to-date list (includes Unicode 11 emoji).


This is very welcome, though it only half-solves my Linux desktop emoji needs. (I miss being able to use Rocket <matthewpalmer.net/rocket/>)

@pixelpaperyarn Snowdrift.coop is still not up and running 😞 but they have done excellent research on the other crowdfunding platforms: wiki.snowdrift.coop/market-res

@mhutch Part of what makes me ask is that I have heard more than once from sex-positive people that "if kissing isn't sex, you're doing kissing wrong." (that's *entirely independent* of whether any kind of intercourse follows it.)

So, if saying "wow, I feel an attraction to putting my mouth-parts on that other person for the purpose of generating and exploring sensations in intimate ways" isn't describing sexytimes, then what is?

@mhutch When describing sensual activities, you included kissing. What distinguishes sensual from sexual for you?
