[pinned] Stream schedule toot: If I'm streaming (games or software development) at twitch.tv/rixTricks, I'll post it as a reply to this post, then delete once the stream is over.

I'm going to start posting a thread with book reviews for this year soon-ish. It's going to run up to ~100 toots over the next few days – I'll tag all of them as , so please feel free to mute this hashtag preemptively if you're not interested.

Look, I made a thing! After I saw the awesome blog post on city street orientations, I generated some charts for European and German cities (and refactored Geoff's IPython notebook into a script on the way). If you want to see a map of your favourite city in this style, tell me about it and I'll see what I can do.

Things that make me sad: The Mastodon API for scheduled toots has been around for 20 months now, and there still isn't any integration in the web frontend.

Tusky (and other apps, presumably) can do it, but ugh phone typing. Would love for @halcyon to offer this!

@rixx There’s planner-todo.web.app which borrows heavily from CulturedCode‘s Things.

FWIW I know about TaskWarrior and its interface is incredibly aversive for me, and I will not use it despite best intentions.

People into productivity apps: What's an equivalent of OmniFocus or OmniPlan outside the Appleverse? Particularly with a similar attention to UX/detail. Doesn't have to be free.

I could absolutely integrate trope listings in my book blog, but that's probably a terrible idea. I will stop thinking about it

any second now.

I need a browser extension that removes all internal links from TVTropes pages.

what's the difference between a cat and a semicolon? 

@seafrog

one has claws at the end of its paws, and the other's a pause at the end of a clause

TIL that anarchists read so much theory that cops find it difficult to infiltrate our circles

"Die spinnen, die Römer" ist ein Wortwitz, falls das außer mir noch wer nicht wusste. Auf italienisch heißt das "Sono Pazzi Quelli Romani" (hinweisgebende Großschreibung).

Fairerweise ist das apexcharts, eine dicke lib, die ein halbes M wiegt – aber sie wird nur auf genau den zwei Seiten eingebunden, auf denen es Statistiken für Veranstalterinnen gibt, und da ist mir das Gewicht jetzt egal.
