@ojahnn: Silly, goofy posts that don't contain any "e"s

One of my favorite ways to write a computer program is to write in plain english outline form what it's going to do, paste those notes into my code as comments, and then fill in the space in between them. Especially good for a project where I'm working piecemeal over multiple days, it's very easy to come back and pick up where I left off.

in conclusion, certain ways of arranging words make me feel good

typography, mouths, selfie(?), eye contact (briefly) 

But how's
that?
didn't he call me a dog?
how?
Do
you want a kick?'
Didn't he kick with right good will?

"May be; may be.
There you have
him.
How then?
Let him go.
A problem?
Perhaps not.
No!

Another thing.
Consider!

SAMPLE TEXT

"What him say?"
Oh!
"Why
not?

"What do you mean, sir?
But let us understand each
other.

"Very good.
Answer, quick!"

"Good again.
he must have more than that."

"What lay does he want?"

"Oh!

I have generated a simplified version of Moby Dick, for all those of you who are interested in reading the book but just can't be bothered with all the difficult language. Here's the easy-to-read version: github.com/ojahnn/NaNoLiPo2018

Friend Camp

The decentralized web is about trust. You should only join Friend Camp if you personally trust Darius Kazemi with your social media data. You probably only have that level of trust if we are IRL friends or have been internet friends for a long time. Generally speaking this is a small, closed community. In the end, Darius is the arbiter of what is allowed here. If you don't have a good idea of the kind of behavior that flies with Darius, again, you probably shouldn't join this instance. In the interest of specificity, we do have a code of conduct and privacy policy which you should read. Friend Camp features several modifications that were requested by our users. * you can log in via any subdomain, which means you can log in to multiple accounts in the same browser session (for example, log in once on friend.camp and then as another user on alt.friend.camp) * they are no longer called "toots", they are now "posts" * if you have a locked account and you get a follow request, a reminder appears under your "post" button (on normal Mastodon mobile it is otherwise buried in a sub-menu and you might not see it for a long time) * the emoji dropdown is a neutral smiley face instead of the cry-laughing smiley @mentions are rendered as "@user" for a Friend Camp user and "@user@domain" for remote users. This helps clear up when you follow two people who have the same username on different servers. * there is a "never ask me again" checkbox on the confirmation for clearing your notifications -- more info here * When an mp3 link is in a post, we also embed an inline mp3 player. git commit here * 500 characters of profile text git commit here, requested by @deerful Important Bit from the Privacy Docs: If you want decent privacy (the info doesn't leave this server), the only way to do that is to set your account to private, only accept friend requests from other friend.camp users, and only ever @ mention other friend.camp users. Once you start talking to people on other servers, all bets are off. Any private message you send to someone on another server could be looked at by the admin of a different server. This is kind of like email: if you are on a private email server, and you send an unencrypted email to a gmail account, congrats, Google now has the content of that email. But also, you do this every day, so, hey. The internet! Our beautiful icon is based on photo3idea_studio from www.flaticon.com, licensed CC 3.0 BY. It has been modified by @casey@friend.camp!
