@mjgiarlo working on a joke about what data format the Argonauts preferred but I need to learn classical Greek
@mjgiarlo no wonder they wouldn't let you attend
@ksclarke thanks - good to know! I'm set for another year, probably, but I'll keep it in mind.
@ksclarke hey, what do you think of System76? I was strongly tempted by the Linux support last time I bought a laptop, but went with a cheap generic Acer instead and installed Ubuntu. Does System76 spark joy?
@dbs have you worked with Zotero's IDE for translators, Scaffold? It's very nice.
@platypus this baffling situation only gets worse. I was 15 when Leonardo di Caprio was born. How could that ever make sense? (also, according to the internet, Banksy, but how the hell do they know?)
@dsalo fingers crossed - some days you eat the pip, and some days the pip eats you
@dsalo I spent some time with NLTK a couple of years ago in a 64-bit linux environment, first using Anaconda to set things up and later in pure python (installing with pip), and things worked, once you get the python versioning/pathing sorted out, which shouldn't take more than a couple of years sitting on a mountaintop
@dbs the air conditioning unit for our old server room used to freeze up when it went below -30 outside, causing the unit to shut down and send server room temperatures soaring. It always seemed like there ought to be a simple way around that.
@mjgiarlo I've seen "hypocrisy gap"
@platypus @email@example.com `sort file.txt | uniq -c | sort -n` is also great, to sort by frequency
It's official, the Access conference will be in Edmonton in 2019, for the first time since 2005 #AccessLibCon
@platypus (apart from "don't delete them if they're too good to delete like that one, obvs")
@platypus just curious: what are your criteria for deleting old tweets?
