I was tired of still being tired all the time halfway into my week off, so decided to replace napping with Beat Saber.

Then got a bit excited about new maps and did a second burst of it.

So that's two hours of aerobics (and two showers) after...far too much 🥔 . I'll try not to have a heart attack.

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. :blobcatglaredrink:

Dug out an ancient mutator I wrote that had been languishing on a few hard drives, and probably long lost on the University CompSci department shared install...

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

After 4+ years in Ireland, finally had a chocolate Kimberly.

Kind of a mildly gingery rearranged teacake. Interesting!

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:

So I guess my terminals just got 20% furrier.
