@griffinkate Okay. Well, people collect many odd things for aesthetic or other purposes, so why not theatrical clothes. :)
@griffinkate So would you buy them for hypothetical theatrical use only, or for yourself to use in your everyday life?
I'm a bit of the latter type. Many of my clothes are selected just on the base of it that they'll stick out from the background and crowd. They're not of any particular style or even consistent or matching, they just look a bit queer for everyday use.
But I don't really have theatre in mind when I buy them.
@garfiald Once again your music links are 👌
The pain of discovering *another* modular smartphone company, then finding out that just like Fairphone, they only deliver within Europe
@socalledunitedstates Thanks for linking this. Looks definitely interesting!
It could be cool if people talked more about this. It seems to be a bit hard to find information about this phone, and especially on their OS. They seem to use Android-derived Shift-OS, but it would be nice to read about how much removed of Google it is.
Just so you know, there's once again room for new registrations on https://polyglot.city.
38 quickest will get their place on this low-drama instance. No bigotry allowed. Leaning left will definitely make your stay comfier here. And be sure to be interested in languages!
@byttyrs You're not alone in thinking like that. See for example https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1579528.Gestural_Origin_of_Language
This whole idea just sounds so extremely plausible that it's weird that it's not mainstream.
@cypnk My evening, you ask?
I took a selfie with a pineapple on a pedestal (see my previous toot) and ate a croissant sprinkled with real gold.
I was asked to read aloud a French poem although my French pronunciation is so-so, but apparently was best at the party.
At the way home our bus broke down just after two stops and we had to walk the rest.
So, yeah. I didn't eat a banana tonight tho.
@cypnk It could be called ”connoisseur web”, because only connoisseurs know how to use it.
pronouns, regex, cursed
@wim_v12e I'm trying to do this on bash, which for some reason requires the | in the if statement, otherwise it returns nothing.
Anyway, after adding |, it captures the following:
So for some reason the if statement for y doesn't work on my setup.
(And yes, it would be easiest to just capture literals he/she/they, but the whole point of this excercise is to make this as awkward and impractical as possible. :D)
Perhaps I should just give up! :D
pronouns, regex, cursed
After seeing this St. Hey post I got intrigued to write a regular expression that would capture he, she and they but nothing else.
Alas, I'm not a regex pro, so my if-then-else statements don't seem to work. Could you tell me what's wrong here? Or is it just that bash can't handle this shit?
