I have encountered the term “groiled cheese sandwich” in modded Minecraft, and wondering if that’s even a thing only turned up one result in urban dictionary claiming it is Icelandic cooking technique. Can anybody confirm? (Cc @joonturbo@twitter.com)

Can those symbolic actions change a society in the long term? Or are they just outlets for anxiety that make us feel better and stabilze the current system?

Global warming and third extinction related events showcase the "fun" dynamic of capitalism to make individuals feel empowered while actually taking away freedom to affect real change on a personal level.

E.g. insects will keep dying off by industrial farming and global warming, even if everyone doesn't mow their lawn starting tomorrow. In the face of powerlessness we concentrate on symbolic actions.

@drazraeltod turns out gnusleep does what I want, BSD sleep(1) only takes seconds.

Dear fellow command line nerds: Is there an alternative to wait(1) or sleep(1) that takes minutes/hours/days as arguments?
e.g. “sleepwell 8h” for 8 hours.

How does one sell Magic The Gathering cards? I've got two Snapcaster Mages, but eBay doesn't really seem to work very well for those.

TFW when you discover one of your favorite podcast networks also has a show that positively features Gamergäte, Jordan B Lobsterson and the Google memo guy. :/

Just in case someone else is having the same issues: Dev Support closed the ticket without further comment yesterday, today code generation is working again.

I think I finally understood what fascinates me about Minecraft: Fundamentally it's a clicker game.

Somebody else having trouble generating promo codes for iOS apps currently? (Apple's dev support just berated me for not having 2FA enabled, put me on hold for 10 minutes and then told me the will get back to me via email.)

TIL (thanks to @Autofocus@twitter.com): There's a German proto-baby-shark meme from 2009! youtu.be/AI9KMPvtiWw

Also, currently all profits from Toot! are going towards vet’s bills for a guinea pig who is doing poorly but trying her best.

This isn’t a sales campaign or fundraiser, just a note that if you’ve bought Toot!, you’ve helped a cute little guinea pig.

E.g. the critique that Kondō somehow advocates for women being perfect home makers somehow clashes with this quote which is literally found in the introduction of the first book:

All the backlash to Marie Kondō finally motivated me to read her books. 😝

Decided to augment the microchip cat feeder with a NodeMCU+Hall-Effect Sensor. So I can get a push notification when my cat eats.

Okay. There are a few good ones:
Unripe Antimatter
Miniature Pattern
Tempura Intinerant
Animate Interrupt

I'm searching for anagrams of my name and the only good one seems to be "I entertain a Trump". FML.
