Took me a moment to see the hidden Easter egg in this one... 😆

:emacs: question :BoostOkay: 

@bgcarlisle Not an emacs solution per se, but if you have a large file you need to break up into to smaller pieces, the Unix/Linux command line function split will do this for you.

@pzmyers reminds me of when someone trolled the 1980 RNC with print outs of J. G. Ballard's experimental fiction piece "Why I want to fuck Ronald Reagan" (minus the title, naturally).

Oblique reference to US current events 

It was my birthday yesterday, and unlike previous years, because of covid there was no candle to blow out to make a wish. But I still made one. Regardless, after reading this morning's news I didn't expect my wish to start coming true so quickly.

@verity apparently someone here in the US received a driver's license with only a picture of the chair. Given that they take and assemble the licenses in sequence that means there were probably other people with the wrong picture.

I sometimes have knee stuff. This works. And if it doesn't subside in a couple days, definitely consult with your doctor. Hopefully it'll feel better tomorrow!

📺 his dark materials 

@verity I should have added a 😜 on my post. And having been raised in the US the subtleties of class, while certainly present, are no where near as iron clad as in the UK. It's one of the things that keeps me here rather than coming back to the UK. Tho I certainly can play the clueless Yank with ease...

📺 his dark materials 

@verity given that the primary market for this isn’t the UK, the specific knowledge of what accent belongs where isn’t utmost in the minds of the creators of the show. And is it a good thing that you’ve lived in London long enough that you can distinguish the local accents sufficiently that you can critique shows to this level?
