@yakkoj to even launch a recreation of an Atari ST on an FPGA you need a ROM for it (theoretically you could maybe not pirate it), and then to launch cubase on that, you have to have a no-dongle crack. This stuff must exist for history.

@suricrasia 'cos you take art, apply science to it, go ooh look! More people make art based on the science only with some outside of the sciencey stuff, apply science to the art, repeat for many many generations and you have western music theory...

GRUMPY MUMBLINGS (about grammar) 

@inmysocks to me whom feels nicer in the mouth (that's a direct translation of how Germans describe this kind of thing) but if you don't and its your writing, you can redactor it into "group, [person], they met them two years ago"

@russss I'm about to do the same thing, probably in the opposite direction (headed to Gare du Nord right now!)

@noelle to me this is why makers of all types rally enjoy giving people things they made. Both the joy of making someone's life better, and the joy of having completed something so you can work on the next!

So tomorrow I'm going into a a meeting with the highest ranking HR person of a 1000+ employee company to explain why they shouldn't be saying that employees will be sharing rooms at the hotel for the Xmas party unless they specifically object. Something tells me I should be spending the time working on my resume instead.

Gay Byrne asks Stephen Fry what he would say to god at the ‘pearly gates.’

(In case you haven’t seen this classic exchange. Stephen on top form as usual.)

Ok, role call.

Raise hands, who has tried to write their own text editor at some point?

@jameschip um... In Turbo Pascal 3.0...so _some_ time ago 😹

@draco I did it last week and finally got everything set up right in time to have no energy and no time to stream for three weeks!

@molly0xfff dangit molly, are you upsetting the bros again?! You have me all intrigued about which repo it is and if it's worth grabbing the popcorn.

@Brunty I may or may not have already tasted stollen this year!

"Oh dear, you have a lot of... things."
The cyborg looked up. "The word is prosthetics."
"So much machinery. Don't you worry you will stop being human?"
"Oh, there is a line I will not cross."
"What line is that?"
"I will not question another person's humanity."

@Auster when it's the last international train and the train from the capital is delayed 40 minutes, I find that rings a little hollow.

Fun times, instead of being in a nice hotel in Paris, paid for by work, I'm in a shitty hotel in Mannheim paid for by Deutsche Bahn. That'll teach me for trying to protect the planet! No way they can hold the Mannheim-Paris train for 10 minutes for the 50+ People booked from Berlin who have already travelled 5 hours, no, trains must run on time.

@noelle I feel like this could go further, like "what's your genre, no, but what's under your lyrics" but I can't quite work it out.
