Dear ...why *does* the default XFCE spin have four different things fighting to control keyboard layout, not counting dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration?

The Rust borrow checker seems to do enough verification that I'm not telling it insidious lies (including through omission) that I'm a little surprised it can't just infer the worst-case of any return branch, and needs these annotations at all.

Slightly bleak humor 

(I'm also kinda pleased with this one for a very abstract prompt, which kinda requires you've paid some attention to this month's Awful Twitter People.)

Slightly bleak humor 

All of these were correct to the degree that I forget which one was actually the *answer*.

(If you find the improv counter-ascending bassline offensive, here's a simple trio version without it.)

Might as well use that fancy microphone for something, and the Internet has discovered precisely one (1) , .

@solitaire is to blame for realizing this works.

Added some temporary "purge a wedge of snow from the bottom if it reaches the top" code, and now it's nicely tumbling down with the simplistic angle of repose behaviour.

Bit late, and the gravy didn't want to behave, but the stuffing came out great. :blobcatmmm:

Things I am glad I bought: a decent microwave with a defrost setting that works, and a temperature probe to verify that before and after the oven.

Alcohol tasting 

Sonoma Distilling Co. Bourbon Whiskey: last one! And...it's dark and weird. Wood, smoke, and upon more sipping, lime/orange skin (not peel, the whole waxy, pithy deal), and smoked kippers again. Glad that last one is fading away. The more I drink, the more my tastebuds give up (or volatiles evaporate?) and it just kinda burns. Resting a while, and it's back to...wax? Kinda sour? Rubbery by the end? Weird one.

Alcohol tasting 

Hudson Baby Bourbon: my tastebuds are probably a bit sweet-fatigued from that hot chocolate earlier, but this is a bit of a weird one. Spicy, quite smokey, more ash than peat or anything. Apparently they shake up the barrels with sound, so maybe that's it. Little bit nutty?

Mmm. :blobcatcoffee:

...this is, uh, repeatedly reminding me I should probably trim my quarantine moustache.

Alcohol tasting 

Bulleit Frontier Whiskey Rye: buttercream? This is a smooth one. And yet very burny for a 45%.

Woo, disk write error leading to read-only remount during update-initramfs. System: absolutely pooched and unable to recover from this without rolling up sleeves and Sysadminning at it. And this is a kinda throwaway give-it-a-chance-again newish install...which means I hadn't bothered imaging it yet.

Y'know, if any of you were wondering why I put up with Microsoft for all the ranting at their behaviour of late. :blobcatflip:
