Pinned toot

If I interact with your toots, it's usually because I think you're neat and I want to be friends.

Oh, hi new followers! Maybe now is a good time for ?

I'm an Icelandic geek who sometimes lives in Italy.

I mostly toot about , , , (or ), , and my work: and .

Sometimes my account is taken over by Mr. Tradomat, a bot who posts confused rants about arbitrage.

I'm not always serious, but it can be hard to tell.

Tired banana. Tired strawberries. Blueberries. Left over ice cream from my birthday. Cream. Olive oil.


The dentist said I should stick with liquids for a while...

Can't tell whether Daughter is grumpy this morning, or whether I'm just impatient.

Considering that I only got four hours of sleep, and the first thing she did this morning was say "no!" and storm out of the room to sulk... it might be a bit of both.

She misses her mum.

Sigh. I have to start getting Daughter to bed. That probably means I'll fall asleep too.

I wanna stay up and plaaaay. ๐Ÿ˜ญ

The FOSS world is amazing.

I'm apt updating Ubuntu on my laptop. Hundreds of new packages!

I've only contributed financially (or otherwise) to a handful of projects, but I keep getting all this other stuff for free. It's amazing.

Thank you, community.

My arm is doing a weird spasming twitchy thing, but every time I try and video it, it stops.

I don't think it's dangerous, but if this account goes silent and you read fake-sounding news about a zombie arm terrorising Iceland, well, you read it here first.

One of the benefits to meeting people in person, is it becomes easier to overlook/tolerate suboptimal behaviour on the Internet and collaborate in spite of it.

This is almost certainly a two edged sword.

Watching Moana with Daughter; teaching her that sometimes people cry even though nothing is wrong...

Reading the news this morning, about Madonna's performance last night, the UK media at least seems intent on pretending it didn't happen.

If they mention it at all, they focus on the fact that Israel and Palestine were "hugging", completely ignoring the entire context of gas masks, gender, imagery of war and historic references.

Instead they focus on her singing being a bit flat and claim her fans were "disappointed."

Not this fan.

I know what she did.

Wife is on a plane to the U.K.

For some reason she seems to have taken ALL the pacifiers with her. ๐Ÿค”

Daughter is coping well so far.

I'm there for her. โค๏ธ

00:20, Saturday night...

Wife leaves in the morning for a week, so that's a week where I'm full time Dad.

Do I:

a) go to the pub to drink a pint or two and gossip about Eurovision?

b) experiment with websockets and PageKite.


Realistically... at this point in the day, b) is likely to be an abject failure, but a) is very doable.

I was very disappointed with Madonna for participating in ...

Until I saw her perform a VERY dramatic act with a bunch of women in gas masks, singing lyrics repeating over and over that some people fail to learn from history, and then the act ends with one of the gas-masked women wearing the Palestinian flag...

Walking away from a a scary looking dude wearing the Israeli flag.

Fuck yeah, Madonna.

Thank you. โค๏ธ

Maybe I'm late to the party, but this is incredible:

Python work-books in the browser, and seamless bridges from JS to Python and back... so scientists can just use all the best libs from both worlds.

This also looks like an absolutely amazing teaching tool.

(hat tip to @clacke for the links)

If I go to the pool to swim, and accidentally forget that is on... can I then claim I boycotted it?

This almost happened. Now I'm torn. I really want to go to the pool. And with Eurovision on, the lanes should be free...
