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.

@Rod Join my instance, where it is the mandated default! ;)

@philgyford Ooh, nice pin on map image in that email, I must say.
