I tidied up my website a bit, and set up an RSS feed (dracos.co.uk/feed/ if you care), purely so I could write this post and tell people about it: dracos.co.uk/wrote/css-only-mu
I probably won’t write anything further :)

@russss No worries, I’m certainly not one to care about delayed responses! Thanks, hope they’re useful, seem to be working well.

Next month, we’re performing Elgar’s Dream of Gerontius in the Town Hall (where it was premiered in 1900), do come along!

(Prompted by mentioning it to @Solobasssteve yesterday :) )

@mala I love jq. Use it for e.g. not having Slack bots post on Bank Holidays using the gov.uk JSON.

Iridium flare: magnitude -8.1 at 19:14:38, altitude 54°, in direction 165° (SSE), from Iridium 97. Weather: Partly Cloudy.

@Floppy Apps can’t use `/call` either (at least, when I looked at doing the same thing). We post a link to a Hangout.

Cake Relocate (s2e23) starting shortly!
“Cake is tired of living in the fridge, so Sarah and Duck help him think of other ideas.”

@mala Happy to help with any git questions, doubt I can help with any mblaze, I've just given up on email. Good luck, I'll try not to think that's the start of some "Narrator: It went wrong" documentary...

@mala Not sure why, any issue I ever had with submodules (e.g. hard to move them) fixed in git years ago now. Certainly for pinning a sub-repo to a particular commit sounds exactly like what you'd want :)

@mala Sounds like you want something like:
git submodule add github.com/chneukirchen/mblaze vendor/mblaze which does just that :)

@sil I kept my email from TBL back in 2007 asking where RDF for TheyWorkForYou data was. I think we said help was welcome! ;)

@Rod It's the same as email, so your full ID is username and domain – there are probably a lot of rod@ out there, you don't mind them :) But here, transferring is not really as complete as yet, can't take followers etc along with you. So mastodon.social is probably the gmail (or hotmail?) of this world; that's why I wanted my own to have more (theoretical) future control.
