monolalia → The Cliplog

What’s a cliplog? A microblog taken straight from the X11 clipboard and updated with a keyboard shortcut. Maybe it doesn’t really deserve a name of its own…

When I forgot my meds I can see that my life is really just moving toward growing (or, well, equal... not much left to grow) isolation and suicide

Finally pretty damn sure that the barely-remembered old bell the intro The Beauty and the Beast rang in me is Le carnaval des animaux by Camille Saint-Saëns. One of my earliest musical experiences, but long buried except for a sense of glassy sounds radiating into darkness…

ATTN: If you are currently making a sitcom about roommates, please don't end it with everyone moving out and/or getting married. That's just sad, to see everything dissolve.

Does it bother anyone else on this planet to see SOCAL, OB/GYN or COVID when it should be SoCal, Ob/Gyn and CoViD? At all? Never mind MAC (for the computer).

Sat 10 July 2021 22:06:09 UTC

I'm devastated! But it does look interesting.

There's a new intrusive thought in my mind tempting me to regard all this surveillance capitalist glitz and clutter as OKAY. they just want to KNOW you and SELL you things. you're less LONELY that way. and they give you all these TOYS to keep you happy and coming back in excchange for knowng more about what a cool person you are. ... I may need saving urgently

"noauto,x-systemd.automount" is just the best for network shares in fstab. no delaying the boot process by waiting for wi-fi to become available, but silently automounted when first accessed! thanks to whatever I read to learn of that… already forgot

I don't dislike "Visual Novels" on principle. Like text adventures They often have far more interesting and, uh, non-normie stories than the more luxurious video games. But imagine reading a book that has only one sentence per page, with some of the pages containing nothing but “…”. That's what the *gameplay* is like. Goes for dialogue sequences in JRPGs, too. PLEASE. We CAN read more than ten words at a time without needing to click for no reason whatosever. Yes?

I just discovered by accident that Konsole previews colours (RGB triplets and named colours). That's great!

OKCwestions, pt. 2

Q: Should there be stricter laws regulating harassment/bullying online?

A: I don't know what the existing laws are and what would need to be added that'd be specific to it being online. Do we want to force website owners to implement filtering and censorship and abolish pseudonymity? There're so many well-intentioned paths to hell.

Q: If you had to guess, do you think humans will go extinct in the next 1000 years?

A: They're resourceful little buggers. They will hang on for way longer than that, even if it might not be by the billions. Think about what this would require: billions of individuals from a resourceful and technologically inventive species ALL gone with not even one "Adam and Eve" combo remaining, and be it in abject misery, in highly artificial surroundings, in the last patch of uncontacted tribal territory on earth, in an underground bunker, on Mars, or in the Google AI's petting zoo.

I’d like a gemini browser to automatically generate a different colour scheme for every server/host/idk – like Lagrange does it for the headlines, but for everything…

Booklog: The Child Garden, By Geoff Ryman

...people photosynthesise with purple skin to save scant food, die at 35 (another side-effect of wiping out cancer, who'd have thought!), and have knowledge, memories, desirable behaviour and skills imparted by viruses -- yet it doesn't feel half bad, because it also means there's no need for locks, police, fear of walking alone in the dark; everything just seems to be running itself without having guns pointed at it; life's... not easy, but informal

Tue 02 March 2021 18:02:49 UTC

Booklog: The Child Garden, By Geoff Ryman

It plays on all the senses without ever feeling indulgently hedonist or 'purple'. It'll manage to gross you out *adoringly*. Huge genetically engineered antarctic miners (polar bears) who you'd expect to be an oppressed underclass are a rugged wealthy separate culture that'll take the mickey out of us squishy mind-controlled normies; the eradication of cancer let tumours replicate the host body so well as to produce immortal deformed-looking copies...

Booklog: The Child Garden, By Geoff Ryman

Been finding it hard to booklog; it's still what I'd love to have written but so dense with ideas to process and integrate into an internal coherent model -- melancholically playful, whimsical when it should be creeping you out; a dystopia you (sometimes) half want to live in...

Mon 01 March 2021 22:34:00 UTC

Have merged XDG_CONFIG_HOME and XDG_DATA_HOME into one, since developers barely know when to use which as it is. Nothing's fallen over dead yet, not even Akonadi…

Fri 26 February 2021 18:26:36 UTC

Not sure what to do with Gemini, really. You put stuff out there and then that's that; silence. Might be in a bad mood though

No more dead links; + some a first few old texts posted to the Gemini thang.

…whose name I surprisingly got right on the first attempt. I forgot I was slightly obsessed with this album! If a psychedelic prog-tech sort of thing sorts like your jam, jam to this.

Out now! :) :) Advance tracks were brilliant, Anger is an Acid quite likely to remain my high point of the album...

Fri 19 February 2021 12:42:23 UTC

It's time for that old outburst of anger again, because I can't view a single German website without losing my temper any more. YOU. UTTER. FICKING. AR$€HOLES. DESTROYED. THE. FREE. OPEN. DEMOCRATIC. LIBERTINE. INTERNET with your regulations. That "Datenschutzerklaerung" and that "Impressum" demand a level of self-exposure (self-doxxing, really) and legalese-compliance that a decently-sized business may be able to deal with but not an intimidateable individual with a need for privacy and a hunger to find the other weirdos of the world. BURN IN HELL YOU SHITS.

Booklog: The Child Garden, by Geoff Ryman

I’ll have to talk fragmentarily about this book while I’m reading it. It's the sort of colourfully imaginative but grounded-feeling life-as-an-XYZ-sort-of-creature-detailing "soft" sci-fi I'd want to write if I wanted to take up the responsibility of writing sci-fi, that is to say, to presume to be able to speculate with some level of plausibility.
