today in "computers that are too aesthetic to exist but they do anyway": the Compucorp 675

Busy weekend! Washed both my athletic wear (the leggings I wear for hoop class) and the silly shirt I go to Intrusion in, did some surprise gardening and attended two birthday parties—then spent the Sunday collapsed in a heap recovering.

I went to order my afternoon latte and my barista asked me about Mastodon.

Seriously. This actually happened.

All he knows is that I sit in his coffee shop all day working on something having to do with Twitter and that there's a bunch of bad news about Twitter today.


I added a couple of new designs to my threadless store. available on tees, hoodies, sweaters and a bunch of other stuff! get them here: timecowboy.threadless.com/

A while back I made ramen from a kit containing noodles and miso in little plastic sachets. Then I bought a jar of miso and a bunch of dried noodles and have been making packet-less ramen as my default instant meal

Your true friends are the ones who install your obscure messenger app just to speak to you

For any problem that exists, there is always someone who will solve it somehow by piping something through sed.

Wearing trousers for the first time in weeks. Feels weird man.

I guess there is not particular reason not to just proxy the static server in to the same URL namespace as the rest of the site. Or just add CORS headers unconditionally which rather defeats whatever the purpose of it was supposed to be but never mind.

Webfonts being subject to the same-origin rule is amazingly inconvenient given how not-implementable CORS is in an NGINX-based static server.

Instead of doing a finicky website deployment last night when tired I spent the evening documenting it as if I had, and then this morning I copy-pasted from the article to do the actual deployment. And it worked! :hamsterdance:

They have redesigned the web portal my medical practice uses and I do not think it is good for my blood pressure. ☹️

Tenth anniversary of spreadsite coming up so I should celebrate by redoing the style sheet to be mobile-friendly 😛

OK by dint of creating a Django project from scratch and installing my app I can show it works. And hence I have deployed and unbroken spreadsite.org/

Have not yet proven to myself that the package as installed contains the template files. They aren't in the site-package directory of the virtualenv. Where is my app getting its template files from? It is a mystery.

Have managed to get it to package my package data by using the Django advanced tutorial rather than the information not e official packaging.python.org site. Now waiting for caches I guess because I can't test-install the fixed package yet.

This just in: State of Python packaging tools still bafflingly messed up.

The was really beautiful tonight 🌚
