HEyyyyy guysh happy wednesdayyyyyyyy

I got overwatch last nat WAHOOOOOOOOits so fun okay let me explain my favorite character who I. have been playing as a bunch

His name is Wrecking Ball (I swear his name was Hammond or something back in like 2017 when the game came out but I guess not??) and hes this cute little hamster right??? But also he controls this massive spherial metal ball that rolls around and stuff. The ball has two forms, walking form, and ball form. In walking for the ball stands on these thin crab-like legs and shoots people with its epic guns and stuff. In ball form its just a big metal ball BUUT ALSO in ball form it has this grappling hook that he can use to get himself up to higher places or propel himself foreward.

Like this little dude is my favorite guy eveeeerrrrrrr hes so much fun to play because the way you can use his grappling hook for all sorts of situations is sosososoos much fun and hes also the fastest character in the game in his ball form so i can escape from enemies really quickly. basically in the game you just use him to dirsupt and annoy the other team as much as possible and then make a quick escape, wgich is very very fun. I really like fast chaarcters in games so this litlle man is perfect for meeee.

I hope you all have a sugoi epic kawaii kakkoii day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Soerry to all those who like my usual content of just talking about stuff that actually happened during the day, but i really like overwacth i think its pretty fun so i just waneted to talk about it.

Man this is one crazy book. I really like long books they make me really happy. Books that take months on end to read. When you read one chapter[1] a day everyday you get something special. Something that lets you get to know the characters. Infinite Jest is one of those nice long books. With characters that do actually feel like people you could meet. People who have weird and quirky things about them[2] then they have personalities that are totally unrelated[3]. Not saying that people in real life do not make their hobbies their personality, it’s just that often in stories it is also the case that people become the first thing they do.

When I read a book, hopefully I also deep dive into the author’s brand and the interviews around them. I let all media from this influence my book reading. Reading for me is not just a book with words and footnotes. Admittedly I allow myself to hold a parasocial bond[4]. I watch countless interviews. I try to see why they wrote the book. Reading a book for me starts with me skimming the author’s Wikipedia page. Then I pick up the book. The profile of the author is a lot of fun to dig into. Feels like there's conversation going when I read books like this. There was someone on the other end of the art, rather than just me absorbing content. Someone is serving the content over the tennis net[5] for me to be broken down by[6].

This book is obsessed with certain things within itself[7]. It looks at things relating to these things, especially in places where these intersect. This book does not have conclusions merely by getting to the themes straightforwardly but it draws connections and finds the meeting places, then gets its results. It is a net of stories and pathways that all lead into each other. Every plot falling out onto a theme and every theme leading to a plot or character. The author said the book is structured like a Sierpinski Gasket[8], when it is also a web of ideas coming together. When reading it starts like a deep sea in which nothing makes sense and you keep gasping for air but becomes coherent through learning to find the connections and the repetitions of sandbars.

Footnotes

  1. not exactly one chapter a Day, just enough reading everyday to make me feel like something has happened.
  2. like when you meet someone and they tell you their hobbies.
  3. like if a person meets you tells you they kill at drawing but being good at drawing has nothing to do with their mannerisms and habits. Like when people are not just what super power they have.
  4. Although I always remember that all book authors are not real and are made by the elder gods that control the internet.
  5. This is a reference on my part to the fact that a huge chunk of the book takes place at a tennis academy highschool.
  6. I am very bad at Tennis and this book made me cry a few times.
  7. Obsessed with Québeckers, a fictional film titled Infinite Jest, drug addicts, alcoholics, academia, formal grammar, addiction in general, sad families, television, disabilities, drugs in general (legal and illegal), philosophy (both literal academic philosophy and pop philosophies) American media consumption and many other things.
  8. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sierpi%C5%84ski_triangle In what way is a matter for debate and a longer, more spoiler heavy review. Buf in general the novel has a fractal quality where certain things keep repeating.

from DJ Chase’s Blog

I have a flip phone (it’s much less distracting than a smartphone), so I cannot use an app or a browser to check the weather when getting dressed in the morning. I tried NOAA’s dial-a-forecast, but the number for my state is out of service.

So, I decided to make a script that texts me the weather. This was surprisingly simple. It broke down into three steps:

  1. Get the weather
  2. Text it to myself
  3. Automate that

This post assumes that you have email working on a system-level. Since setting that up is out-of-scope for this post, you can either do it yourself or get an account on a pubnix.

Step one: getting the weather

There are two ways I went about this. At first, I just used wttr.in in image-mode (to avoid text-wrapping issues). This worked well but I generally prefer NOAA’s forecast, so I eventually switched to the weather.gov API.

The wttr-version of the script looks like this:

#!/bin/sh

# POSIX sh lacks mktemp
umask -S u=rw,g=,o= > /dev/null
unset WEATHER
trap 'rm -f "$WEATHER"' INT TERM HUP EXIT
WEATHER="/tmp/$$.$USER.$(awk 'BEGIN{srand(); print rand()}').png"
:> "$WEATHER"

curl --silent https://wttr.in/LOCATION.png?1Fqn > "$WEATHER"

Replace LOCATION with your location / zip-code.

Step two: texting it to myself

Now that we have the weather, it’s time to text it. I thought this part would be challenging, but it turned out to be very simple. I found out that most US carriers provide an email-to-MMS gateway, which meant that I could just send myself an email and it would show up as a text.

I chose mutt instead of something POSIXly correct because attachments are really simple with mutt, and this is just a hack.

The full script now looks like this:

#!/bin/sh

# POSIX sh lacks mktemp
umask -S u=rw,g=,o= > /dev/null
unset WEATHER
trap 'rm -f "$WEATHER"' INT TERM HUP EXIT
WEATHER="/tmp/$$.$USER.$(awk 'BEGIN{srand(); print rand()}').png"
:> "$WEATHER"

curl --silent https://wttr.in/LOCATION.png?1Fqn > "$WEATHER"
mutt -a "$WEATHER" -- 8005551234@mms-gateway.example

Step three: automating it

I then had a script that texted me the weather when run, but I wanted to get the weather every morning. To do this, I just made a simple cronjob (run crontab -e):

# minute hour day-of-month day-of-week month command
0 10 * * * /home/u9000/bin/pushweather.sh

That’s it. This project was surprisingly simple but very fun, and I use it daily.

FELIZ JEUEVES!!!!!!!! (happy thrusday in spanish)

Im current;y writing this is History lab whilst John is strugglibg to get the TV working, hopefully i can finish this sugoi dairy before it works again...

Update: John is trying to airplay it now i think??

Update: he said “there we go” so i think he did it

Update: ITS WORKING now i get to learn all about how abe lincon died wow!

The video we watched was very insightful. Learning about the actual level of pre-meditation for the assassination was fascinating. I especially was intrigued when it was revealed that the police officer that was tasked with the protection of President Lincoln was actually incredibly inept at his job. In fact, the officer ended up going to a bar in the middle of the play! This left Lincoln completely vulnerable for John Wilkes Booth's eventual attack. I find it very fascinating that the assassination could have been completely avoided if the Police Officer was adept at his job, or if he was replaced by a more professional bodyguard.

I hope all those who read this gain a piece of knowledge they previously were unaware of.

have a great day!

anyways its a game with an incrediby good an insightful story and has really really good music thats really really good. The only critisism i would only ever have to the game is that some people might not like the battle system, although I do like it. The battle system can be a bit tedious at time and when the story actually starts to get good you really start to feel how difficult and long each boss battle is. But honestly the story is so so so so so so so so so so so so good and awesome and sadge and sadge that it really makes up for the game's flaws. however fair warning OMORI will take up so much space in your mind after you finish the game and you will honestly never ever be the same around stairs or watermelons and you'll also probably like phsycilogical horror a lot more and you'll always draw Sunny's Something on whiteboards ans also you'll feel really sad for a little bit. Also you will just constantly be thinking about it like all the time no matter what. Also the fandom surrounding the game is pretty good they make some pretty silly memes. ok bye

You may have noticed that the FarkasCity editor lacks buttons for making things italicized or bolded, and for adding links and whatnot. This is because the FarkasCity editor uses text-based formatting, called Markdown.

This article is a guide to using Markdown to format your blog posts simply. It is arranged from basic to more-complicated things, so you only have to read as much of it as you want to.

Titles

To title your post, put a hash before the first line of your post. For example, this is what the beginning of this post looks like in the editor:

# Guide To Formatting Articles

You may have noticed that the FarkasCity editor…

Formatting text in a paragraph is really simple. To italicize something, surround it in asterisks (stars) like so: To *italicize* something,. For bold, use two stars: For **bold**,.

Links are also fairly simple. You can add a link by simply pasting the URL: https://example.com. You can also add a named link by putting the word(s) in brackets followed by the URL in parenthesis: [named link](https://example.com).


Lists

Markdown supports two types of lists — bulleted and numbered. For bulleted lists, start each line with an asterisk or hyphen and a space. For example,


- Foobar
- Baz
   - Qux

produces

  • Foobar
  • Baz
    • Qux.

For numbered lists, do the same thing but with numbers:


1. Foobar
2. Baz
   1. Qux

produces

  1. Foobar
  2. Baz
    1. Qux.

Headings

Headings are lines that start with three or more hashes and some space:

### Heading

#### Subheading

##### Sub-subheading

For example, the begining of this article looks like this:

# Guide To Formatting Articles

You may have noticed that the FarkasCity editor […]

### Titles

Block quotes

If you have a large block of text that you want to quote, you can use a block quote. Block quotes look like this:

But as a means of textual emphasis, block quotations sometimes become, like all caps, a form of self-defeating typography. Writers often dump text into a block quotation because they want to signal “This source is really important, so I’ve quoted a lot of it!” — Matthew Butterick, Practical Typography

To make a block quote, add an greater-than sign (arrow) before each line break:

> But as a means of textual emphasis, block quotations sometimes become, like all caps, a form of self-defeating typography. Writers often dump text into a block quotation because they want to signal “This source is really important, so I’ve quoted a lot of it!”
> — Matthew Butterick, Practical Typography

Images

Random example image

Images are added like descriptive links, except they have an exclamation mark in front of them: ![Description of image](https://example.com/image.png). Make sure to put something descriptive in place of “Random example image” because that is displayed if the image fails to load or if a person has their computer read for them.

So what are you waiting for? Go write something!
