    These are great! I love old bad jokes, makes me think about old rap where nobody is really all that good b/c the format hadn't been figured out yet.

    'Course, it doesn't include the "oldest joke ever written" (the veracity of which claim I cannot confirm nor deny):

    Something which has never occurred since time immemorial; a young woman did not fart in her husband’s lap.

    Yeah, I end up scrolling r/all for like, hours. It's a whole problem, lol. It'd be nice if I could just block r/all, actually (since I often go to individual subreddits for news/etc).

    I've just re-written licensor, a tool to add a
    license to your repo easily, and trainfuck, a
    train-themed variant of brainfuck that's now able to actually execute the

    I also wrote a little shell-script to play internet
    radio which I use pretty often.

    I just wrote a quote of the day server in
    scheme
    last night. It's an old protocol
    defined by RFC 865, and was pretty easy to write--- most of my struggles were
    figuring out libraries and stuff, since I'm new to chicken. Was fun though!

    (slightly off-topic) I like this idea, but I don't see the point if I already have a personal blog. Why can't we just use blogs+rss to follow friends any more?

    Oh I mean like, a 50-page polemic on just how throwing a cake at the Mona Lisa while disguised as an old woman protests climate change.

    I am also somewhat uneasy with devault, though honestly the reason why is pretty silly and doesn't really apply anymore.

    that being said, I simply don't understand why anyone would go out of their way to personally attack him to his face. that's just ... not nice, and never called for. just don't use his software if you don't want to.

    as far as harassing project maintainers on sourcehut, that's just beyond the pale imo.
