Hey, I just wanted to say a quick to the recent Chinwag arrivals!

Chinwag's reason for existing is to provide communication tools for people, which is something I've always been interested in. I kind of target users, but welcome anyone from anywhere.

Any Americans out there who'd be prepared to try to ship me a keyboard cable?

Because I'm a huge nerd, I own a Model M keyboard. However I've lost the cable somewhere.

Places like this sell them at reasonable prices:

... but it's another $35 for shipping, which seems over the top for a cable, which I'm pretty sure doesn't need ludicrous protection, unlike an actual keyboard. It just needs a padded envelope right?

Anyone want to reship one to Australia?

Tuesday update: determined to cook meal, prepared to Do The Thing. Discovered there were no clean plates. Having no strategy available to cope with Do Two Things, am consuming muesli bar instead.

I'm nearly 50 and I always thought I'd have discovered at least one thing I was really good at by now, instead of just a growing pile of things I'm kinda OK at.

... Wait, it's a Halle BAILEY? Well that makes more sense, I was wondering if they were planning on doing something really cutting edge with digital de-aging.

I've been busy:

PenPal, a Linux daemon to sync your Wacom Bamboo devices and render drawings:

I occasionally log in to Twitter and notice that some people interact with my posts when they're mirrored there.

If you're one of them, come hang out:

We have a tram emoji now. :dingding: What else could you want?

I thought I'd made it past this stage of my career, but apparently not.

Yes, look, I do want to help you solve this issue with the payroll submission, as I have a strong desire for it to work. I am very keen to get to the bottom of this error you're experiencing.

I did not need you, however, to attach a plain text copy of all the payroll data for all staff to the email you sent about the problem.

You're lucky you sent it to a sysadmin who already has access to everything. If you'd sent this off-site, my tone would be quite different right now.

Hey @matt is the source feed for the @abc_bot just their RSS or something else? I'm comparing output of @abc_just_in for sanity and seeing the other one includes a bunch of hashtags and stuff that mine doesn't.

So I've been a fan of Youtube vids that use the default filename as their Youtube name, and just found that @abundance made a page that lets you browse them easily :acnl_gyroid:

The first video it showed me was:--

--which is a perfect start to a video surfing journey.

boost if someone calling you a radical leftist is a compliment

Petition to replace all "no smoking" signs with "no exhaling" so fuckwits with ecigs get the message that it applies to their vaping too.

By far the most common request I get is for alternatives to Google's Re-Captcha.

The situation is so unclear that I haven't done an alternatives section on the site.

Do you have suggestions for re-captcha alternatives?

(I know this has come up before, but the discussions are scattered across many threads which people are failing to find.)

A couple of months ago I switched from LastPass to a self-hosted Bitwarden setup for management and it's been great. The apps and browser extensions even look nicer.

Thinking about making it a public service for Chinwag users. Seems solid.
