they didn't take it! still feels good
I'm not going to port it over to the Fediverse because I feel like the video files are larger than good citizenship allows, but I'm very stoked on the recent label-finding and animation on my birdsite 78 bot https://twitter.com/xor/status/1286349185105747973
BUT when I opened my notes folder to write out my long todo, I found a similar “grounding” document from 2016 of my personal goals, and while I wouldn't have guessed this, I've actually been doing pretty well on those
figured it out!! I was using os.get_terminal_size() to format the output, but when you redirect it that results in an OSError for "Inappropriate ioctl" (but I was swallowing that error for sloppy reasons)
Yeah, hm, testing this out with a simpler script is reassuring about my basic understanding of stdout and redirecting, because... it works. but now debugging this is going to be weird
OK the thing I'm encountering is more subtle than I described, but... my script which produces command line output with print functions doesn't put anything into a text file when it's redirected (nor does it apparently provide anything to a pipe)
