@VickyRampin mostly not sure about this yet, but I think some committee meetings are probably going to remain virtual

Does anyone know of an accessible explanation of FLoC, suitable for sharing with librarians?

@edsu twarc has come a long ways since I last checked! Nice work

Over the past few weeks, I've found that working on a Recurse Center application has brought on incapacitating impostor syndrome. I finally decided today not to submit an application and suddenly feel much better. Now I want to code again 🤷

I have a lot of complaints about the Google Cloud SDK, but I'll concede that it is *way* better than the web console for uploading thousands of files

Spending a lot of time writing CSS recently, and while it's keeping me busy, it's not the most satisfying

@sam_hames hmmm, it is nice that twarc is on top of this. I did use twarc before switching to dmi-tcat several years ago.

@sam_hames maybe I am misunderstanding, but I thought the standard API is being deprecated eventually? That's why I'm looking for a solution with v2

@VickyRampin Thanks for this. I know technologies eventually move on, but I'll be sad to give up on dmi-tcat; it has served us well for many years

It's nice to come back to the library and all of the office plants. The plants have been running things just fine while the librarians were away, thank you

@VickyRampin hmm, yes. I would be interested in the technical answer too, though!

Does anyone know of a way forward with Twitter v2 API when your small, academic archive doesn't qualify for the Academic Research track? The problem we have is that we don't have a research question to pursue, we are just archiving tweets about our college, for the benefit of future researchers. This approach doesn't seem to fit with Twitter's "tracks".

Any thoughts are appreciated.

@hugh I guess this is what happens when you get librarians talking about library web pages?

fontawesome has been really, uh, monetized since I last checked. Sure, I appreciate all the fancy developer tools, but isn't this is a bit much for some icons?

I like seeing all the variations on GET /wp-login.php that end up in the logs. The irrepressible creativity of humans!

I was expecting the end of lockdown to be accompanied by more champagne spraying, tbh

@ashley I've been reasonably happy with my XPS 13 w/ Ubuntu, fwiw.
