Every single person on Mastodon is an anarchist trans girl from Portland, Oregon who works in infosec. In fact, I am an anarchist trans girl from Portland, Oregon who works in infosec. I wish I had found out sooner.

The reason I've been working out how to scroll by column is, of course, so I can make landscape-mode layouts for reading web fiction, like gitlab.com/keturn/multicolumn-

@uint8_t the other fun part of this is I go to the pharmacy and pick up a month's supply. The receipt says $8 and "your insurance saved your $121."

reinforcing the idea that the private insurer's bargaining power is the only thing that keeps the cost to me from being marked up by 1500%, and so I need to keep paying my insurance bills.

Clocks? Is the answer "clocks"?

Because the lower numbers are more common, not so surprising to allocate characters for some low numbers but not _all_ numbers, but then why twelve, and not ten or thirteen or fifteen or twenty?

Clocks go to twelve and are often marked with roman numerals.

Why are there distinct code points for the roman numerals one through twelve? unicode.org/cldr/utility/list-

I guess they've been there since Unicode 1.0, so Wikipedia doesn't have any links to the proposals for their inclusion.

Slept for something like thirteen hours last night?

Minus a couple interruptions (including when I woke up, surprised to find I'd slept through midnight, and moved from couch to bed), but a lot of sleep regardless.

That's one way to bring in the new year. 💤 🎊 💤

@felix Do you have a high-level document about what it means for a link aggregator to use ActivityPub?

I appreciate why having a federated authentication protocol is helpful, but my experience of link aggregators hasn't left me thinking of them as stream-shaped.
