For curiosity's sake, the project that is currently attempting to drown me is "I wonder if it's possible to set up a Source mapping workflow on Linux", and the step I'm stuck on (besides "I'm not sure if I have a working Windows install on any of the computers in my house") is that I can't seem to get studiomdl.exe to work through wine.

I really feel like I'm in up to my ears in the wrong project when I have to start digging around for anything in my house that runs Windows, in order to test something.

Please can it be April 2nd soon, so I don't have to see another "here's a neat/cool/fun thing that you can have, but actually we were joking and it doesn't exist"?

most sci-fi-themed and dystopian future works of art:

Best thing about 2020, no new marvel movies

The web based Mastodon-client @pinafore is just as good on the phone as it is on the computer. It's lightweight, clean and a joy to use.

One of my favourite features with Pinafore must be the wellness settings. I really like that it supports pagination to prevent endless scrolling.

The only thing I miss is support for multiple accounts on the same server. :)
