I see Amazon is starting to deploy its own SCORPION STARE network.

Got a crown for my tooth today. My tooth doctor now has a cool 3D imaging and CAD/CAM mill that allows a final crown to go in right away (without taking a cast, installing a provisional crown, mailing cast to a lab, and waiting a fortnight for a follow-up to install a final crown).

@Latkes This reminds me of Veronica Mars which was so good in so many ways but had some pretty big blind spots

A couple weeks ago @courtney and I published the legal document that transforms our standard LLC into an LLC that operates on cooperative principles.

We published it with annotations so you could understand why we made some of the decisions we did.

Bookmarks: Bullet Journal - The Analog System for the Digital Age

"The Bullet Journal is a customizable and forgiving organization system. It can be your to-do list, sketchbook, notebook, and diary." I used to have a paper to-do system that worked pretty well, but I gradually abandoned it. Thinking it might be nice to pick it up again.

Java works OK sans fifth glyph. You can work with for, if, int, long, char, String and arrays (no ability to ask for a count of things, though, kind of tricky), float, function calls , and class (but no class construction). Infamous "public static void main(String[] args)" start point will work. Calculation with also works. try/catch is OK but virtually no class to say with our constraint. Also, no subclassing of any sort - good or bad?

the wonderful witches of witches.town have introduced me to the glyph ꙮ

it is "multiocular O", a variant of Cyrillic O that is used in certain religious texts in a phrase that translates to "many-eyed seraphim" and basically nowhere else

I honestly am having a hard time thinking of a single witchier Unicode character unless the Leviathan cross is hidden somewhere in the codeplanes

@Lobst Wow! Love the aesthetic. Takes me right back to 1980 Macintosh gaming.

My oulipo.social account (@mbrubck) was accidentally deleted, and I had to re-create it. Unfortunately you have have trouble re-following it if you followed the original account: github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

Hacked one of my Mastodon instances to offer a 1024 character limit for flash fiction. Small tweak, but wondering if it might interest some writerly folks if I open registration eventually flashfic.stream/@lmorchard
