"In JavaScript null is 'nothing'. It is supposed to be something that doesn't exist.
Unfortunately, in JavaScript, the data type of null is an object."

Tip for those living in areas prone to power loss.

Keep big jugs of water in your freezer, if you have freezer space. if/when power goes out, use the fridge/freezer as little as possible, and transfer frozen water jugs to the fridge. This should help keep the temperature low enough to delay spoilage of food.

BREAKING: Free Speech Extremist Shocked to Learn that First Amendment Doesn't Require People to Listen to Him

TIL that Venus rotates so slowly that if it you were on venus at sunset, you could walk fast enough to keep up with it. You could watch the sunset for as long as you could walk.

I mean you couldn't because Venus is entirely made of fire and lightning and acid and unbelievable atmospheric pressure, and I think there's only a couple sunsets a year. (All the more reason to chase them, right?)

But I still am charmed by this idea of strolling along with the sunset.

feature idea: just like how there is a "blocked users" tab in mastodon that you can look, a "migrated users" tab that shows everyone who moved accounts and set the mastodon marker

... also notifications that they moved to replace the method we've been using with things like migrannounce

I finished A Wizard of Earthsea and accidentally spilled feelings all over my Goodreads review


Roses are red
Pink, white, yellow too
But violets are violet
And violet’s not blue

Happy Day-Before-Half-Priced-Chocolate-Day everybody!

I made a few updates to the bookmarklet and now there's better user tag support and fewer bugs. Also a fuck tonne of examples.

I made an update to the signal boost bookmarklet with user name detection and tagging for a few other sites (most notably ), plus small changes to the text generated by the bookmarklet. lj-writes.dreamwidth.org/2019/

Remember. St valentine was the patron Saint of beekeeping. Celebrate valentines day the way it was meant to be celebrated by planting bee friendly wildflowers

masto: are you sure you wanna block the whole instance? what about the nice people there? what if you're losing out? why not just block this one shit head instead of all of them? why not-

"Pro-tip kid: Always make sure the cool back-scratcher you found isn't, in fact, a monkey's paw," whispered a gruff voice.

I looked over at the old... person... with shaggy hair and weathered trenchcoat obscuring most of their face save for their sharp, deep, dark eyes.

"No matter where you find it. Even if it's somewhere familiar. Just don't."

"But what if my back really itches?"

"Then expect to have this conversation in 45 years."

First pass-through is done at 302 lines. I do NOT look forward to testing and debugging. At least I realized at some point that the endless conditionals I was writing really should have been a function instead.

Original code: 79 lines
Fork that I forked from: 93 lines
My fork: 242 lines

And I'm not close to done yet

Probably one of the biggest unacknowledged impacts of capitalism on our life is the artificial scarcity of time.

Without capitalism, we could all work less. We could rest more. We could let selfcare, play and creation come intuitively. A lot of things don’t need to be scheduled.
We could just let time happen without any obligation to make a particular use of it.

Please CW your posts fediverse, I've seen so many recently that need to be CW'd but weren't. These posts can be genuinely triggering, upsetting, angering or a reminder of horrible, difficult times or their current life and having at least sympathy for that isn't too difficult or if you don't at least try to understand. The CWs are there, please use them.

I decide on a whim to work on a project for the first time in approximately a bajillion years and now I'm falling down a rabbit hole, creating a new Github Pages website to host external code and, it looks like, taking the code in a way more complex direction. I thought it was going to be a simple little fork...😭
