@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. 😖
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.

@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 feel like I've been rising out of the lowest part of the winter depressive funk. Being out is better, I think, but being at the bottom of the 🕳️ did simplify things.
From here I can acknowledge more possibilities, things that could happen given some sustained effort over time, but I don't feel I have the spoons to see them through.
Plus the anxiety of needing to catch up for lost time, and not knowing when I'll get pulled down again.
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 <https://matthewpalmer.net/rocket/>)

Chrome devtools is, these days, a fairly good debugger. (now that Chrome is one of the most popular programs in the world, and one of the biggest software companies in the world has been pushing people to develop for it for the last ten years).
PyCharm is the best Python debugger I've had the pleasure of using, and it's pretty decent too.
Neither of them has some of the useful features standard in ddd+gdb.

In chatting with someone working through the OverTheWire wargames, we're talking about debugger usage, and it occurred to me to wonder if ddd is still maintained.
Sadly not. Which is disappointing, and also, to me, surprising. I know all software projects have maintenance challenges. Especially unfunded projects. But for me, using ddd (when C programming) set the standard for what I expect from a debugger.
@pixelpaperyarn Snowdrift.coop is still not up and running 😞 but they have done excellent research on the other crowdfunding platforms: https://wiki.snowdrift.coop/market-research/other-crowdfunding
@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?

This thread by Alexandra Rowland is by turns educational and validating, on the subject of how one Beau Fucking Brummel started the trend that confined men's fashion to colourless trousers for centuries to come.
