Combined with having to do some history editing to work around problems with DOS/UNIX line endings, execute bits, and the git classic "I'm not going to point out you forgot to add that new file two commits ago", this sure took a few hours.
In the process of adding a link to this to my website, I discover Ubuntu have updated Ruby to a version that breaks the version of Jekyll they ship.
Sigh. This is why I lean so hard toward rolling all the generative stuff myself (like that mutator) with ad-hoc Perl scripts. At least C/C++/Perl-era languages are really resistant to making breaking changes.
Dear #Debian ...why *does* the default XFCE spin have four different things fighting to control keyboard layout, not counting dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration?

So Pinball on Twitter has been reviving the #fsjal meme at https://twitter.com/PinballsWizard/status/1351904465125847046
After seeing http://pinballswizard.com, I thought Flying Fsjal might fit! Classic Windows #screensaver, fsjalified with mouse/touch interactivity…
I lied. New icon.
Inspired by https://twitter.com/PinballsWizard/status/1351904465125847046 's extensive work over on birdsite.
TIL that there's a fonts-monofur package in Debian, while looking for something that'd render nicer on a standard-res screen, and was tickled by the name until I realized the package homepage is Eurofurence.
And while it's a .net version that seems to be camped now or something rather than the .org, it *is* *that* Eurofurence, if you track back from here to the regular version of the font: https://web.archive.org/web/20180921023321/http://eurofurence.net/monofur.html
So I guess my terminals just got 20% furrier.
Also everything about BIOS vs UEFI boot continues to be an absolute mess in random consumer PCs.
This particular one seems to UEFI-boot off the internal drive, but only MBR-boot off USB sticks. This confuses the Debeans.
It's 2021 and I'm still trying to help my Dad get wireless working under Debian on his laptop remotely.
Dear laptop hardware manufacturers: please stop using crappy new proprietary chipsets that don't have in-tree drivers yet. This doesn't even look like missing firmware, because Debian have a nonfree spin of the live image these days.
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.)

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