Did a big release of emoji-picker-element today. Not super excited about it since it was kinda forced on me by a breaking change in a dependency, but I'm glad it's done. github.com/nolanlawson/emoji-p

TIL from my wife's article that Welsh people are slower in maths because their brain needs to remember the long words and so loses some capacity to do the actual math problem:

zomg I have to push really hard not to want to upgrade (not that I have the money, but still):

Lucky @brion!

OTOH, my i7-4790k is still chugging at 4.4 GHz, with 32GB of DDR3 RAM and SSDs all around, so no real reason nor benefit for the upgrade. (except maybe to reduce power costs. but then I'd have to go buy a laptop.)

Anyway, all this talk of how copyright maximalists are destroying the things we love because they want to insert themselves as middlemen between ourselves and the things we love and would rather have the whole thing crashing down rather than compromise, and because they are often USA based, and the arm of the US is long… that's why I, a European living in Europe have to donate money to a US non-profit to fight for my rights over there.

Is there a program that you can use as a synthesizer like the VCS3, and it takes MIDI input as produced by Orca? I'd be interested.

I will never understand why loading screens are so boring.

So RIAA wants to kill youtube-dl. What’s next? “You use the computer, therefore you’re stealing our content? Even though it’s not our content at all we want you to stop and shut down your computer immediately”.

Oh, and this party trick:

Linux from scratch:

"Essentially you fetch a bunch of source archives off the internet, run tar, configure, make, make test, make install a bunch of times with some system setup in between, before compiling your kernel, putting it into place in /boot and getting grub installed and configured."

It seems to me like people are having false hopes about recovery. We're expected to be under various corona restrictions for a year more at least, with ups and downs.

And the economy will be lousy for two years or more. It's not all bad for a lot, just don't think everything's gonna be back in like a year or two.

So we will get better, but not immediately, and not back to where we were, not anytime soon at least. So let's be content with what we do have right now.

Keep your head down and optimism up.
