“Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It’s hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It’s round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you’ve got about a hundred years here. There’s only one rule that I know of, babies—:

God damn it, you’ve got to be kind.”

― Kurt Vonnegut, God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater

One of the big takeaways from me from apconf was how much I've unfairly discounted the Pleroma community (tbqh because @lain is such a massive shitposter that I don't know how to make sense of it probably). But meeting everyone IRL really made clear how thoughtful that community is, behind all the jokes. Lots of excitement there while discussing (not just w/ the Pleroma folks, but esp with them) about how to make things genuinely better for fediverse users. Thanks for the good chats, friends.

Have you read any Octavia Butler? What are your thoughts?

neither LaTeX nor Markdown has a built-in syntax for underline.

> this is because underlining is a byproduct of the typewriter era, and is not recommended when bold and italic type is available instead[^1].

> markdown is a markup language, like html, and should not be concerned with how the text is presented (that's the job of the styling/CSS), but to provide semantic meaning to the text[^2].

Question for the #3dprinting experts:

Is black (PLA) filament more or less resistant to UV degradation?

In other words: does the black color help absorb UV light before it can harm the plastic/polymers?

I did get some time to work on #ExpeditionSasquatch Episode 6 last night, and I'll have more time a workin' on it tonight.

It's got one of my favorite gags in it of everything we've written so far.

(Remember, new episodes on the fifteenth of every month! I'm trying to stay two months ahead at all times, so I can devote proper energy to the other things I'm a workin' on.

New episode of Expedition Sasquatch is up now at

It'll show up in your RSS feeds over the next hour or two.

There's some really good stuff in this one. The editing is a little rough, but that's mostly my fault.

As always, thanks to @Username_Here_ASAP for voicing everyone's favorite #sasquatch hunter.
