I have gotten really into over the last five months. It has helped bring my eye pain under control. You can enjoy a free Qigong online summit for the next few days. QigongGlobalSummit.com

@mookie Yes good point. i fondly remember a number of get togethers. And it did add a real social element.

@lilo I've had a good experience on the web site, though a friend said she had some issues so I'll find out what and get back to you. So far all of the buttons have read fine for me. Can you give me a specific example to test?

My favorite late night talk show returns October 1st! The Kingdom of Nye with Heather Wade: TheKingdomOfNye.com

The developers of the appsneed to step up their . I'll try to file a few issues but don't wait for me. Label those buttons! Let me know if you would like me to test any updates. Let's make Mastodon usable by everyone!

@veer66 Ah. I learned Common Lisp in college. How would you compare it with Clojure?

“I need to change some of my
behavior, and I want to apologize to the people that my personal
behavior hurt and possibly drove away from kernel development
entirely.”

I did not expect to see this kind of introspection from Linus Torvalds lkml.org/lkml/2018/9/16/167

@veer66 How has learning Clojure affected your Ruby? I love Ruby, it serves my day to day needs well, but I do like learning to think in new ways.

@mookie Yes! QEMM and DESQview! And I had to throw a TSR screen reader into the mix. I keep wanting the BBS to return for exactly that reason. We had to go through so much to have a two-line BBS. Now we can easily have it with the internet and modern operating systems.

've decided to learn a functional programming language. I enjoyed in college so have considered and maybe a dilect. Some friends have tried to conince me to go with , especially because I already do a lot of work in . I do appreciate the elegant Lisp syntax and its rich history.

@peterthomashorn Yes. I converted my blog from to last summer and have never looked back.

Speaking of H/P/A, a friend triggered her work's firewall by trying to listen to this weird piece of audio from the Phone Losers of America. phonelosers.org/media/Relay_Op

@mookie Wow Waffle, what a strange piece of software. Ok this confirms my excitement about then.

@andy @mookie Interesting. Yes I think I know what you mean about the comparison with the H/P/A scene.

@triptych Hopefully they will remember that they got in trouble for something like this in the past.

@DigitalMisfit Hey great to know! I use a screen reader so that feedback helps.

@blurrythoughts I felt the same way so bought an Essential Phone.
