"Humans are weird," the cat said.
"I like them," the dog replied.
"Throwing, I ask you. They evolved to be good at throwing."
"And making friends."
"Granted. At least that's useful. But how did throwing happen?"
"One of their early gods," the dog grinned, "owed ours a favour."

I wonder if I can figure out how to convert my Chromebook to a laptop running standalone linux, and if so, what distro would be best suited for it.

@aral Seems it failed at the "start new shell with elevated permissions" bit even though it did ask me if I wanted to allow it. By manually running windows terminal/powershell as admin and running the install command, the install works.

@aral Oh, actually... despite it giving me every indication that it installed properly I don't see it in my program files folder.

Hey @aral I'm following the instructions for the Site.js hello-world example on Windows and I'm getting an error when running the "site" command. I'm guessing this is a pathing issue? "site : The term 'site' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program."

After hearing a presentation by Scott Hanselman this morning I've decided that blogging as I code might not be a bad idea.

I've previously used @write_as as a platform and have been more than happy with it, but times are hard and even the $6 a month is starting to sting a bit financially.

Been wanting to give Site.js a try but everytime I look at the instructions for setting it up I feel instantly overwhelmed.

So what are some "easier" alternatives? GitHub Pages?

@aral Since you have your ear to the ground way more than me, do you know if there is a list of small tech tools available for people trying to transition to it? For example, I'm currently looking for a note taking solution and the thought of Evernote etc makes me cringe, but it's mostly the "big ones" that come up when I search.

Worst security system ever, just toggle the off switch.

Did someone yeet the doggo down the trash chute?

So the landlord has his fridge stuffed with meat, this other guy has his stuffed with Cola 500. What does Simon have in his fridge?

Is the first guy small, or the second guy huge?

@aral @laura Got a random question for you guys. Is there a way to purchase @better without having a working Mac or iOS device? Y'all are worth supporting.

I just blew my own mind by realizing that I could make my own inks for use in my fountain pens. That'd be a pretty cool thing!

@sandyman Do you host your ghost blog on one of your Raspberries?

Can't say I feel excited to be back at work after having two weeks off over the holidays.
