At the Target in SF I considered parking in one open spot but then in the last second decided to park across in a more sunny spot.

When I came back out of the store, a car next to the open spot I had originally considered was on fire with fire fighters all around it in action.

@mdszy If perl doesn't work, I'm dropping the awk bomb. ☢️ ☢️ ☢️

It appears I cannot use feed2toot to do a really kick-ass xkcd bot. So, need to consider the difficulty of Plan B.

@gudenau It could have been a system name, which is why I asked. Linux system?

@Kokichiouma I would suggest logging into the website and editing the user pic in your profile. I'm not familiar with the app you are using, so no idea if you can do it through the app. Welcome.

Opinion: The construct of to point out content on that system is probably confusing to new users. It implies a connection between Birdland :twitter: and Mastodon :mastodon: that doesn't exist and shouldn't exist.

Probably going to put together two new bots soon, assuming they don't already exist.

1) xkcd feed
2) Send a weather station code, get the current weather conditions

2 will be the first one I have written that will take input.
