Remember kids, being an asshole ironically is still being an asshole.

Someone on fedi recommended the podcast [The strange case of the Starship Iris](procyonpodcastnetwork.com/tsco). It has held my interest for 5 or 6 episodes, so thanks for the tip whoever you are. Although the setting is a bit more dystopian, it has a similar feel to the Becky Chambers Wayfarer series. I'm not a parent, but it seems ok for kids able to copy with a few non-player-characters dying. No sex so far, but some romance. Queer and trans characters shown positively (says the cis-het guy).

SPORTSBALL, Captain Obvious. 

Can I just say that this whole Olympics-during-pandemic thing is a really bad idea?

Basically the income stream of the IOC is more important than the lives of my friends in Tokyo, and that sucks.

The Linux Foundation are carrying out a survey on "Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion in Open Source", and I know this is something #foss #freesoftware and #opensource people (and opponents thereof!) on the Fedi have opinions on. So please boost and fill in.

Contributing to an evidence base may be a way of highlighting the problems and shaming people with money into doing something about them.

How do you abbreviate s-expression, which is itself an abbreviation for "symbolic expression"?

Me, early this morning: curses, why is this bag of coffee so hard to open?

Me, a short while later: why is the writing on this bag of coffee upside-down?

Me: Free software means people should be able to do what they want with their own computer

A user: I want to fix Gnome so that it works better to be logged in as root all of the time.

Me: not like that!

Covid, vaccination rate (+, unless you are antivax) 

That's 45% percent of the total population, but it doesn't have the same ring to it.

I will keynote at EuroPython, which am stoked but too fatigued tbh to even prepare for. I also plan to have a hallway track to discuss some of my plans as director of the PSF to highlight work from scientists and researchers in our community. I would love to hear from especially organizers of SciPy and PyData, please ping. ep2021.europython.eu/talks/key

Just jabbed, moderna after Pfizer biontech. No side effects in the first 5 minutes.

Profanity, Freenode. 

You have got to be fucking kidding me.

Very funny.

Trying to debug a file descriptor leak in BIP (irc bouncer) I raised debugging to the level that every message shows up in the log. Reading all channels smashed into one is not as awful as I would have expected. Depends on volume, I'm sure.

If I select "Strong reject", you may reasonably assume I am not going to nominate this particular submission for the best paper award.
